wedding at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards

Knowing the sweet bride, we were already excited about this particular wedding, but when we heard her location was Pippin Hill Farm, our enthusiasm pretty much doubled. The farm & vineyard is set in the Virginia countryside.

The bride really wanted to incorporate the landscape so we designed a custom watercolor that showed the Pippin Hill Barn and scenery + included a touch of hydrangeas and greenery that would be incorporated in the wedding. We used watercolor finish paper and backed the save the date with a gray woodgrain cardstock. Hope you enjoy all these dreamy pictures by Laura Gordon

The whole wedding suite featured various textured papers and soft colors. We also took some of the illustrations from the invitation and carried them through on the day of materials. Napkins, programs, and welcome bags. Lots of beautiful items for a beautiful bride.

Every single item you created for the wedding was absolute perfection. I wasn't the best at articulating my vision the first few tries, and despite my shortcomings, you nailed it. All of it. And then some. 
Your creations helped direct and reinforce the feel  and theme of our engagement and wedding weekend. I can't tell you the number of  people telling me who told me everything you created was so me. That is a true testament to y'all. You all are an absolute delight and it was a pleasure working with you.

Downtown Nashville Save the Date

We designed this suite to give guests a little taste of the Music City vibe. When we met with the bride she fell in love with white printing on kraft paper. Very fitting for the Country Music Hall of Fame venue they're using. We went to work illustrating the downtown skyline and coming up with some fun typography. This invitation included white foil stamping on French speckletone that was duplexed to be extra thick. The final touch was a watercolor cowboy boot we designed to tie around and some killer country western stamps. Had to give it some honky-tonk flair.

Colorado Wedding Invitation / Steamboat Springs

We wrapped up the Colorado wedding we had been working on since last Fall and it was such a stunner. The event was out West in Steamboat Springs so the aspen trees and mountains gave us great inspiration. Plus the family wanted to incorporate their native american heritage, and love of hunting & outdoors. This wedding suite included letterpress printing, woodgrain paper, foil printing, watercolor imagery, and a box mailer with custom postage. We were able to carry the watercolor crest from the Save the Dates into the invitation folder. The woodgrain booklets were wrapped in velvet ribbon and secured with handmade feather tassels. The mountains have called!

new years eve invitation : 2014

When it's New years Eve + your 50th birthday you gotta ring in the year big time. This invitation was all about "Mike." Athlete, card shark, golf lover, father of two, with a very good sense of humor. Black + white with gold foil all over. And the real show stopper was the incredible calligraphy mixed with vintage sports stamps. This was truly a fun one!

letterpress deer christmas card

The holidays are over, but we're so excited to share this wonderful Christmas card we did last month. Our client really wanted something special to celebrate her daughters recent wedding. The gatefold cards we're letterpressed on Cranes cotton stock & tied with a red ribbon for a punch of color. Our favorite part was the vintage style envelope liner with found winter imagery.

Watercolor Crest - Save the Date

I know we're not supposed to pick favorites and all, but this is definitely a favorite. The bride really wanted a one-of-a-kind crest so we incorporated imagery from the Colorado mountains where the wedding will be held.

I love the bright cheerfulness of the crest balanced with the rugged letterpress on the opposite side. The Save the Date card was letterpress printed on wood grain paper, die-cut, and feature a custom illustration of antlers & headdress, along with a wood grain envelope liner. The Native American illustrations give a nod to some of the family heritage & there will be cocktails in a tee-pee on the big day. Hopefully guests are packing their bags already!
