Sam & Stephanie

This wedding invitation suite is close to my heart—because it was for my own wedding. It included letterpress invitations, reply cards, and save the dates magnets, and a digitally printed map enclosure and envelope liners.

A bit about designing the suite: It was so much fun to work on my own invitations, and I knew I had to go all out. I designed the suite inspired my favorite designer Jessica Hische, and using her typeface for the movie Moonrise Kingdom, Tilda. We had to incorporate our pets, Ponyo and Piper, so they have their representation throughout the suite. My husband I did the 4 color letterpress printing ourselves. The map was fun to create, and its geographically accurate. I referenced maps of Deer Isle, Maine from the early 1900's (and then cross-referenced with Google maps to make sure all the islands were still there!) The design of the suite and colors translated to the decor of our wedding, with Ponyo and Piper pinatas, custom disposable camera covers that I printed and cut, on chalkboard signs, and on screen printed “picnic boxes” where we served sandwiches instead of on traditional plates.
