The gorgeous couple you see above almost needs no introduction. If you are a reader of WeddingBee, you’ve probably already met the bride, Stephanie. She’s Mrs. Panther! I had the pleasure of working with her and her now-husband, Brad, last year on some really awesome floral wedding invitations and I’m excited to finally be showing them off! Check ‘em out:
Stephanie created her own invitation design and hired us to letterpress print it! The letterpress parts of the suite were an A7 invitation printed in two ink colors with a corresponding A7 envelope and smaller, 4bar RSVP envelope.
The A7 invite features an awesome, violet, floral design on both the back and front. The typography was a fun mix of modern san-serifs and scripts printed in a light, but bright blue and violet within a modern violet frame.
I love how bold and non-traditional Stephanie and Brad’s colors were, and I also love how she was able to incorporate classic, traditional elements, like flowers and scripts, into the design, as well as bold colors and modern typefaces. It’s not something you see done very often and when it’s done this well, it looks just awesome!!
Something else that was totally cool about these invites was the bright teal edge-painting on the invitations. All of Steph and Brad’s invites were edge painted with a shimmery teal-green paint that really added some extra pizazz to each one! Check out that awesome pop-of-color more closely in the images below!
Twin Ravens Press also printed some lovely envelopes for Stephanie & Brad’s suite. Both the invitation and rsvp envelopes were a dark, shimmery blue paper printed with gold ink. The calligraphy for the fronts of all the invitation envelopes as well as the letterpress return address on the back, was created by Michele Clark of Calligraphy by Michele. Michele’s awesome! We’ve worked on several different projects together over the years and her work is always beautiful!
If you’d like to see the other pieces from Stephanie’s suite, how the whole thing came together, more gorgeous calligraphy from Michele, and read what the bride herself had to say about these, and working with us, you can totally read her posts about them here and here on WeddingBee.
I loved working with Stephanie and it’s been really fun to check in from time to time on her blog to see what other fun wedding goodness she incorporated into her big day! Thanks so much again Stephanie! If you ever need anything, just let me know!
