From Rachel: Hope and Miles wanted to build excitement for their farm to table wedding celebration at the esteemed Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant. We decided to base the save the date design on antique seed packets. The save the date was letterpress printed in three colors on Reich Savoy double thick cotton paper.
The invitation evolved from there to include antique botanical illustrations, mixed with artful borders, and hand calligraphy of the couple’s names and return address by Jenny at Leveret & Hare.
We added some copper foil details and enlarged a lavender illustration to create an abstract foil printed envelope liner. We letterpress printed it all on Reich Savoy double thick cotton paper, enlisting the help of our pals at DWRI Letterpress in Providence.
We used Colorplan amethyst RSVP envelopes for a pop of dark purple here and there. We took the printed suite to our friend Angela at Studio Carta and spent way too long trying out different colors and styles of ribbon for the perfect complement to tie together the four coordinating pieces. Settling on a metallic copper ribbon, we then sent the outer envelopes off for calligraphy addressing by Jenny at Leveret & Hare.
Meanwhile, for the wedding programs, we designed and hand-bound 150 passport sized booklets with Italian parchment endpapers and waxed Irish cotton linen book thread. We made further use of the beautiful borders and botanicals for escort cards, table names, and welcome notes.
