Elegant Purple and Gray Wedding

Excited to share with you (but extremely hard to photograph) a classic and elegant blind letterpress wedding invitation. The bride really wanted to incorporate the vintage feel of lace and burlap. In the design, we have blind letterpressed, which means pressed in with no ink, a lacy background into the paper. The beauty of blind letterpress is that it’s subtle but it can give off a really nice “wow factor”. Wrapped in a goccoed burlap belly band, these unique wedding invitations were definitely fun to work on.

Some detail shots of the blind letterpressing

The couple hired the extremely talented wedding photographer, Jose Villa to shoot their special day. Here are some of the details of the day shot by Jose including the couple’s full stationery set. The day took place at the beautiful Bently Reserve in San Francisco.

The wedding program were tucked into goccoed burlap bags.

I found about six of these old frames at a thrift store and paid $30 for them. The bride spray painted them gray to create a consistent and vintage look for the hang tag escort cards. The hang tags were to harp on the previous notion from their wooden hang tag save the dates.

One of my favorite things about this wedding was the gorgeous flowers done by Natalie Bowen. The centerpieces were set into beautiful wood boxes and the tables were identified with zinc letters.

The couple had hired a creme brulee cart as a post-party treat. Everyone received a little wooden spoon with a flag as a ticket informing them of the cart.
