I’m such a fan of the beautiful work of Sarah from August Blume – I even got the chance to work with her on my friend Maggie’s baby shower invitations a while back! So I was thrilled when Sarah sent over these elegant calligraphy wedding invitations with delicate blind letterpress printed details. So pretty!
From Sarah: This invitation suite was custom designed for a sweet, Southern couple who were married in their hometown of Jackson, Tennessee. The bride and groom wanted their invitation to reflect their elegant, textural, and romantic wedding day. The suite was letterpress printed on 220lb Crane Lettra and incorporated a delicate blind impression to reflect on the couple’s reception venue – a historic hotel in downtown Jackson.
The invitation and inserts featured beautiful calligraphy by Elizabeth Hardin and classic typography in warm gray. The stone colored reply envelope added another layer of color and texture. A custom die-cut quatrefoil monogram tag was slid on to a velvet ribbon wrap to tie it all together. Elizabeth’s calligraphy on both the inner and outer envelopes elevated the design and helped set the tone for such a special day.
