Jennifer & Christian

The second set of invitations that I designed were for Jennifer and Christian who were married in the oldest Catholic church in Buffalo and celebrated their reception at Shea’s Theatre, a cultural landmark in downtown Buffalo. This suite was also letterpress printed with Studio on Fire on Canaletto Grana Grossa Bianco in a 111# cover weight.

The invitations were square, featuring a vintage looking flourish. To play up the theatre aspect, the reception card was designed to look like a vintage ticket. (“Tale of Three Cities” alludes to the cities the couple has lived to together: Buffalo, Tokyo & New York City.) They were also enclosed in tiny red envelopes that were stamped with a calligraphed sentiment. The RSVP card was designed as a postcard and guests were invited to write a note or draw a picture on the backs of them for Jen and Chris to keep as a keepsake. They also featured a line from the couple’s first dance song, “Can’t Fight This Feeling”.

The suite was mailed in a black envelope with the return address letterpressed in silver ink on the flap. (Not shown to protect the couple’s mailing address.) These were also lined with the song lyrics from their first dance song. Small ceremony program covers were also letter pressed at the same time as the invitation suite and were later bound with red and white twine.

    Hi,

    I saw your wedding invitations on style me pretty for the block island wedding. I am getting married in cape cod and wanted to have the same exact invitations but with a cape cod map instead of block island. I am also getting married on the beach. Do you have more information where i can see your prices? Do you still make invitations? Please let me know. Thanks
