Karessa and Richard are an old-fashioned, vintage-loving couple with an appreciation for raw objects and old processes.
We wanted to create an invitation that our guests would want to hold on to well after the wedding. It needed to be a practical piece that suited the look-and-feel of the wedding.
I wanted to create an engaging and memorable invitation which suited the rustic Autumn theme. With the paper stocks we’d chosen, we just had to make it a letterpress piece. The raw look of the buffalo board along with the simple design and typography suited the vintage look perfectly. The buttons and string were attached by hand and locked the invitations shut allowing the guests to unwind it themselves. Additionally, the RSVP page was perforated and became a self-mailing postcard once it had been torn out and filled in by our guests.
