Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Brynn + Robert

 

I had the great joy of recently working with Brynn and Robert on their Letterpress Wedding Invitations for their May 2014 wedding.  Brynn contacted me in early January and is getting married at the glorious Disney’s Wedding Pavilion in Florida.  When she initially contacted me, she expressed what she was looking for in her invitation suite.  She said, “Overall, we’re looking for a classic design, can be formal, romantic, vintage, Floridian, etc. Our color scheme is light pink, red, white, blue, and gold since our wedding is over Fourth of July weekend. Feel free to play around with the 2-color scheme.”  She also mentioned that they liked bears and had a cute cake topper that consisted of two wedding bears.  Keeping this in mind, I decided to go for a “vintage Disney” look using a blue and gold color combination, wanting to keep it simple and classic.  I also really wanted to incorporate the two bears since it’s just too cute to pass up!

The Letterpress Printing

We printed the letterpress cards using our C&P.  The entire letterpress wedding invitations suite was printed with our Pearl White cardstock, which I feel is a perfect color as it plays into the vintage look we were going for.  The Pearl White just gives it a soft, romantic feel and I thought it tied together nicely with the design.  The two colors we used were Gold and a blue that I mixed to match Pantone 647U.  I absolutely loved the color combination used for this custom design.

The suite consisted of these specific pieces:

  • 2-color invitations on our 220# Pearl White cardstock
  • 2-color RSVP cards on our 110# Pearl White cardstock
  • 2-color additional card (rehearsal breakfast invitations) on our 110# Pearl White cardstock
  • 1-color program on our 110# Pearl White cardstock

I was really excited to ship them out!  I shipped them to her mom in Connecticut so she could  take care of the calligraphy for the envelopes.  I was a little bummed that Brynn and Robert wouldn’t see them in person, but a few days later, she sent me this wonderful follow-up e-mail:

 Hi Elma,

Apologize for the delayed response, but so happy I can say we’ve finally seen the invites!!! My sister just moved to LA and brought some back out here with her.

They are absolutely perfect, and have far exceeded our expectations! We love them and are such fans of your work! You did a great job, we really couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out!

The note you included was also so thoughtful! Hope we have the opportunity to work with you again in the future!

Best,

Brynn & Robbie
