Hermitage Hotel rehearsal dinner invitation / Nashville

My little brother got married this summer so we whipped up some mighty special details for his big day. First to share is the rehearsal dinner invites. We used the vintage Hermitage Hotel illustration I'd originally scanned from an old letterhead. The card was letterpress printed on ultra thick stock to give it some heft. We then lined the envelopes with another vintage find, a Nashville map scan from an old travel booklet.

 We also illustrated this monogram "B", that is similar to the Hermitage Hotel logo, to use on napkins & menus. 

Farm to Table Rehearsal Dinner

Our client wanted some "Farm to Table" invitations for her sons rehearsal dinner coming up this Fall. The dinner will be hosted on this gorgeous estate called

Elawa Farm

. We put our Tenn Hens spin on it with custom illustrations, highlighting some of the produce grown in the farms garden. The suite included letterpress, a duplexed backer, matching envelope liners, and calligraphy by Val Cole.

This client found our work through Pinterest, but here we are in the same town and they were already working with with Big Events Inc. We've worked with Big Events before and they are super fun so we were thrilled to do it again. This nautical themed wedding is at The Breakers in Palm Beach. Fpr the rehearsal dinner we kept it preppy and used their colors, navy & aqua. Invitations are 1 color letterpress + map liners + a coordinating label.

IMG_6761 Before we get too far into the new year, check out a design we did this past winter. The goal was to create an “outdoorsy, masculine, & preppy design” for a rehearsal dinner. The only other requirement was to include an antique monogram the couple had chosen of their initials. Instead of creating the illustrations ourselves, like we normally do, we found these beautiful deer images and a botanical background.

It all really came together once we lined the envelopes, duplexed the backs with faux-bois paper, and tied up each package with ribbon & twine. Event planner, Elizabeth James had the brilliant idea of using a collection of vintage stamps for postage which was the pièce de résistance! IMG_6696 IMG_6739
