This invitation was such a blast to design. Often times the best part of producing a wedding invitation suite is the couple themselves, and working with Alanna and Guthrie perfectly exemplified this. They’re two of the absolute sweetest people around, no joke. They even lent us their tools when we needed to cut some frames for our own wedding. Good folks, these two.
Alanna and Guthrie wanted to highlight the Rocky Mountain Front, an awe-inspiring mountain range outside their home town in Montana. Not only had they spend many a night under the stars in these mountains during elk season, but they also chose a stunning venue nestled in the foothills for their wedding day. What an amazing and apt setting for such a remarkable couple. And to top it all off, the charming hand-drawn map was done by Guthrie himself, who happens to be an incredibly talented artist. We couldn’t have done it any better! Custom calligraphy by Anna at Cast Calligraphy.
Emily Newhouse is a crafty gal and conveniently enough, a super talented graphic designer. She designed this amazing invite for her own wedding in July, and we had the honor of printing it for her. We’ve always been pretty DIY ourselves, so it was a blast to work with Emily and her husband Michael.
The design is a two-color sea foam and slate grey invite, printed on thick 220# lettra in A7. We love the way the two colors work together, and the swirly accents perfectly compliment the bold typography. We’re happy to have met Emily and Michael and wish them all the best!
Shawn and Steve Knudsen had planned a beautiful wedding in Moab, Utah and wanted a modern western-feeling invite to match. We designed this dual-purpose Save the Date/Invitation for them, featuring a custom-illustrated Delicate Arch. The invite is comprised of three colors chosen from a natural, earthy palette. We specifically chose our inks to achieve the rustic, salty coverage reminiscent of vintage newspapers.
Printed on Lettra #110 cotton paper.
