Letterpress Wedding Invitations: Tami + Ken

 

I recently had the great pleasure of working with Tami and Ken on their letterpress wedding invitations.  They are tying the knot next month at the beautiful La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California.  Tami also happens to be one of our close friend’s sister and I was more than happy to play a small role in her wedding.  I started working closely with Tami in early January for her August wedding.  We bounced a lot of ideas off each other and tried a few different designs before we settled upon the designs on the cards below.  As far as the color scheme goes, she decided on fuchsia and silver.  She mailed me a fuchsia colored sash that she wanted to incorporate and from that, I was able to match it to create the colors you see on the orchids and details below.  She was sweet enough to send me a photo of how she assembled the pieces together.  I’m absolutely obsessed with the final product.  She did such a great job!

Letterpress Printing:

The cards were printed on our C&P in our Fluorescent White Cardstock.  The invitations were printed in our thick 220# cardstock while the additional pieces were printed on the 110# cardstock.  I really had a great time printing these cards and I really loved how the fuchsia color printed onto the bright white card.

When Tami e-mailed me the photos, she also sent a sweet thank you note as well:
