// REAL WEDDINGS // Caitlin + Chris

Blogger, Caitlin Covington, and Chris were married in June of 2018, and we had the pleasure of working with them on their save the dates and wedding invitations. Have you ever seen a more beautiful couple? We loved being a part of the process and are excited to share the details with you!

For her save the dates, Caitlin chose to set the tone for her big day by combining foil text with a digitally printed photo of her and Chris. For design, we enlisted the help of calligrapher Debi Zeinert. We completed the look with a solid foil liner... the outcome was, in our opinion, perfect! We love the way the whimsical calligraphy and tawny matte foil compliment the fall palette of their engagement shoot.

Caitlin's wedding invitations featured custom calligraphy from Sarah Hanna in fog gray letterpress. The final touches complete the look, so we finished the invitation with a soft pink painted edge and custom envelope liners. Her envelope liners featured peonies and a custom duogram by Sarah Hanna. We love the way the custom liner represents Caitlin's style without compromising the timeless, classic design of the invitation.

// REAL WEDDINGS // December Deckled Edges

Nothing says December like a deckled edge… that is just what you were thinking, right? We know people typically think of snowflakes and Santa, Christmas cards, and holiday invitations. But December weddings are special in their own right. Everyone is already feeling festive. Churches and venues are filled with greenery and candles.

The same romanticism of a candle lit room is embodied in the torn edges of deckled paper. These two December wedding invitations evoke the feeling of the season in very different ways. Both printed and designed in-house, they also each feature the artwork of an outside artist.

Bethany and Grayson’s wedding invitations featured the custom wreath artwork and duogram of Betsy Peters Rascoe of Design Dimensions. We paired a coordinating script font for the bride and groom’s names. The design embraces the season, without screaming Christmas.

Emily + Greg

Emily and Greg’s invitations are clean and elegant. Featuring their names in the calligraphy of Shasta Bell, we decided to keep the rest of the text very simple. The charcoal ink pairs wonderfully with the crispness of the white deckled paper. The entire suite evokes the quietness of winter.

If you would like to work with an outside artist or calligrapher on elements of your wedding invitation, we can add additional typesetting to their designs. We require all artwork to be submitted to us in a high resolution file. It can also then be used on napkins, koozies, or other day of paper needs. We have lots of sizes in stock including square and folded cards. So many options and so many possibilities!

Don’t fault us… while others are dreaming of a white christmas, we are dreaming of deckled edges.

// WEDDING WEDNESDAY // Calligraphy

A pen, some ink, and a piece of paper. Those are the tools of a calligrapher. But somehow, when they do what they do, simple ink on paper transforms the words on the page.

Handwritten calligraphy can be used in various parts of your wedding stationery. Calligraphers can draft the text of your invitation and create artwork that is then used in other methods of production (engraving, letterpress, or thermography). Some brides opt to have just the names of the bride and groom, or other key pieces of information, done in calligraphy, and typeset the rest of the invitation. Typically, calligraphers charge per line when creating the artwork for your invite.

Having the envelopes hand-addressed by a calligrapher is another way to enhance the presentation of your wedding invitations. Try as we might, our handwriting just doesn’t compare! You can pick the calligraphy to match the tone of your wedding weekend; whimsical, formal, modern. More styles of calligraphy exist today than ever before.

We have a list of calligraphers that we recommend to our brides for their invitation and envelope needs. Each calligrapher does have their own booking requirements and other requests, such as timeline, additional envelopes needed etc.

If you have a custom monogram or other motif created by a calligrapher, you can incorporate it on napkins, programs, gift tags and more. The possibilities that a pen and a piece of paper give you are endless!
