It’s been quite a while since we’ve shared one of our real weddings, but I have a few lined up to share with you over the coming weeks! This wedding is one of my favorites from last year, and Chris Sollart very generously shared some of his gorgeous photos.
Icy and Jay were married in October 2010 at the Seattle Tennis Club. Icy initial approached us wanting a modern and fresh design that conveyed to guests that the wedding, while an elegant affair, would also be a really fun celebration. Icy brought along to her initial consultation some photos of the lace on her dress, which immediately inspired us. The lace contained a floral pattern that was somewhat random and really beautiful.
Working from those photos of her dress, we created a modern floral design that was reminiscent of the lace but not overly feminine or romantic. The design translated so well into letterpress – the invitations are letterpress printed in an elegant navy and a really deep natural green on 100% cotton paper. We tied in additional shades of green with sage rsvp envelopes and deep mossy outer envelopes. The modern floral design is foil-stamped in white on the envelope along with the return address for an additional unexpected pop of modernity.
Icy and Jay’s wedding date was 10.10.10 – Jay is a web developer and was excited with the idea that their wedding date was all ones and zeros, which make up binary code. Playing on that, we added in a string of ones and zeros in the date on the invite – with the date itself standing out in a larger size and different color.
We carried the theme through on to programs and escort cards – Icy and Jay even had it carved into the ice sculpture set up at the bar! Their cake, created by New Renaissance Cakes, contains a beautiful and intricate representation of that lace on Icy’s dress.
Icy is a self-proclaimed “thank you card junkie” and loved the idea of ordering thank you cards with their invitation order. We created two different thank you designs for her and she ordered enough to keep her stationery drawer well stocked beyond the wedding!No comments
Here’s one of our letterpress designs available on the new Pressroom & Co. website (check out this post if you’re not sure what I’m talking about). I love the photo of the newly printed invite (left) – to view it larger (and to see more freshly printed designs) visit their flickr stream.No comments

Pardon the blog silence for the moment, dear friends – we are in the middle of a move! Jonathan, Stella, Twinkie and I are knee-deep in boxes, tape guns, and sharpies. We’ll be back very soon – once the dust settles a bit and we’re in our new home we will have lots of great stuff to share – photos of recent work, an exciting new partnership, and much more!No comments
I am smitten with these custom posters from Alexander & Co. I first discovered these through Ruffled and could not be more impressed. Their vintage inspired illustrations can be customized with your names, wedding date, wedding locale…even hair colors! We have many friends getting married this coming year – what a great gift idea!
We recently discovered we were selected for inclusion in the new design publication 1000 More Greetings! 1000 More Greetings features an expansive collection of correspondence for all occasions. We were honored to have two invitations featured amongst an impressive group of designs from around the world.
