Bryce and I recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary so with that I’m sharing what will be the last of our wedding related posts. I think I might be most excited to share our wedding invitations & more with you because we worked so hard on it. Well, Bryce is a graphic designer so…obviously.
Oh my poor husband. I was probably his worst client ever and as much as we loved working on this together, he was absolutely thrilled when everything was printed and we were finally done. I think you’ll agree with me, he’s on amazing designer (check out his other work here).
We created everything together with Bryce doing the heavy lifting of actually making our ideas come to life. Our letterpress invitations were printed by Flying Rabbit Press and our Iron Horse save-the-dates were actually individual prints from a wood block carving done by our lovely friend, Jenie Gao.
Everything else was printed on purchased paper from Neenah Paper or paper we received through Bryce’s fancy graphic designer connections.
Bryce designed a logo for our wedding which was eventually used as a light for the dance floor at our reception and was even turned into a beautiful lazy susan made by Kim Magee at Fauxfilled Finishes. (What an awesome bridal shower gift!) But first, we turned our logo into a rubber stamp that we were able to use on EVERYTHING. Made life easy.
So without further ado…
Invitation, Map & RSVP: Letterpressed in Gold & Black, placed in a gray folder. RSVP & Outer Envelope were gold & stamped with the logo in black. All hand addressed by yours truly.
Save the Dates: Wood Block Carving of the Iron Horse Hotel done & individually printed by Jenie Gao (and us!). Tied up with black string & a small card in a gold envelope with an explanation about the beautiful print. Outer white envelope hand addressed in gold marker.
Table Numbers: Designed over scans of vintage Milwaukee newspaper advertisements found at our local antique store.
Also Included: Wedding Logo, Table Seating Chart, Fortune Teller, Reserved Seat Signs, Ceremony Program, Fun Cocktail Hour Fill-In Sheet, Thank You/Place Card, and Post Wedding Thank You Card.
