Aaaah, rose gold – even in the smallest of doses, this beautiful metallic makes my heart go pitter patter. Combine rose gold foil with stunning calligraphy in a beautiful wedding invitation suite from Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress? Absolute perfection!
From Samantha and Whitney: This custom suite was designed for a sweet couple who were married by the sea in Blue Hill, Maine. The bride and groom wanted the invitation suite to reflect the romantic, textural, and elegant design that they had in mind for their fête.
Each invitation was triple mounted on a variety of colored stocks in a neutral palette to give a dramatic layering effect and a luxurious weight to the piece. The invitation and insert pieces all featured classic typesetting letterpress printed in a warm grey ink and beautiful custom calligraphy done by Kelle McCarter of Designs Girl foil stamped in a romantic rose gold foil.
A reply postcard featured a vintage topographical map of the venue location, further highlighting the lovely destination. All pieces were then wrapped in a hand-stitched, textural linen band with a layered, foil-stamped tag and coils of super-fine paper thread.
A soft-pink cotton envelope liner foil stamped with Kate and Cleon’s names added yet another pop of color and shine. The pieces were lovingly letterpress printed by hand on our antique press on beautiful, textural, super thick 100% cotton paper.
Day of pieces included programs printed on double-thick cotton featuring rose-gold foil edging, a welcome bag note showcasing a custom map detailing fun area activities for guests, favor tags, custom koozies, and so much more!
Thanks so much Sam and Whit!
