Letterpress Invitations: Mia + Ryan

 

We recently had the honor of working on Mia and Ryan’s letterpress invitations.  They got married just a few short weeks ago at the beautiful Barndiva in Healdsburg, California.  Congratulations, newlyweds!!!

We got in touch with Mia through Christin Wilson of Christin Wilson Events in early July for their October wedding.  I met Christin previously at a good friend’s wedding in Temecula back in 2010.  Absolutely love the work she does!  Christin had worked with Mia initially and emailed me a few ideas of what Mia liked for inspiration.  She was interested in a custom letterpress design for her wedding invitations which I had so much fun working on!  Mia wanted something simple with a touch of “boehmian.”  Working closely with Mia, we came up with the below:

The Letterpress Invitations

Her wedding invitations were printed on our 220# Pearl White cardstock.  This was a 3-color print with gold edge paint.  The colors used for the invitations were gold, grey, and the antlers in blind.  Absolutely loved how deep we were able to press the antlers!

With this custom letterpress invitation, she was able to really personalize it and requested we put the following at the bottom of wedding invitations:

“The ceremony will be followed by dinner, drinks, and conversation (no f*ing dancing!)”  I absolutely loved this!  Mia was not afraid to step out of the box and definitely made this her own.  I’ve never had a request quite like this, but I’ll have to say, it was a breath of fresh air.  The additional pieces (RSVP and events card) was printed on our 110# cardstock.  The events card was a 2-color print: grey and gold while the RSVP card was 1-color: grey.  We also letterpress printed her return address on some pretty rad Kraft envelopes (not pictured).

I had such a blast working with Chrsitin and Mia on these wedding invitations.  Thanks for being so wonderful and congratulations again Mia and Ryan!
