kasia and jack will say their i do’s in august of 2016 during an intimate ceremony at rock creek cattle company in deer lodge, montana. kasia requested a save the date in the form of a folded card that included a simple line drawn map that illustrated where they both came from (seattle and poland), where they met (philadelphia) and where they would celebrate their wedding (montana). we created two different versions of this vintage map inspired save the date — one in english and the other in polish. these were printed on a soft cotton ivory stock in black ink with a touch of sage green. our favorite part was the finishing touch — an outline drawing of their bull dog on the back cover! we can’t wait to get started on their wedding invitation suite!
colleen and anthony will exchange their vows this october at the maris stella church, followed by a reception at the windrift in avalon, new jersey. the couple wanted their package to feel like the natural beauty of the seashore, so we used muted colors and patterns of gray driftwood and natural seagrass. the invite is a soft gray and ocean blue letterpress. the reply postcard features a painted water color picture of a lifeguard’s boat on the front, with a vintage postcard design on the back. the front of the details card features a custom map of avalon with points of interests and venues highlighted. the pieces were bundled together with natural jute twine displaying a circular, wooden tag, engraved with the couple’s monogram. they were mailed in a warm gray envelope and hand addressed in sky blue ink by ashley wren of hello bird. we had a blast working with colleen, as well as her very creative planner, sara murray of confetti & co. we are currently having a ball working on her day of materials and cannot wait to share those goodies with you!
