An Old Fashioned Winter Wedding

An Old Fashioned Winter Wedding

This Old Fashioned Winter Wedding package was so much fun to work on and was my first letterpress project. For a wedding held at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Ma, the bride asked to stay away from anything too wintery but to keep with the setting. I found a handful of pen and ink drawings of small flowers and other natural pieces and used those to pull the colors and the wedding theme together.

All pieces were printed letterpress, 2-color (a Pantone pink and gray) on Crane’s cream. Finish size of the invitation was 5×7 and the accompanying pieces were each made .5 inches shorter than the previous one so that they would all be visible in the jacket. The whole package was then inserted into an 80# fushia pocket jacket and sealed with a round seal with the couples initials (not shown).
