Our Pretty Things
kelly and dario were recently married at the end of august at the water works, a gorgeous, historic landmark in philadelphia. kelly wanted to incorporate a custom watercolor of the neoclassic venue by myrtle & lloyd that she used in her save the date. we printed the painting on a translucent white vellum and layered it on top of the invitation. the invitation, reply and details card were all printed in charcoal letterpress and blind deboss on cotton cranes lettra. this printing method, along with the pairing of delicate cursive and modern typefaces achieved the couple’s vision of contemporary meets classic. the pieces were bundled neatly with gold cord and mailed out in a coordinating cranes lettra envelope.
