Weddings | Josie and Matt

IMG_7289Twin Ravens Press would like to send a big congratulations out to our clients, Josie & Matt who were married at a sweet farm ceremony in Brownsville, Oregon, last Saturday!  Josie and Matt were married outside of a historic Victorian farmhouse and garden at AtaVista Farm which was built in 1876.  Josie wanted their wedding invitations to be simple, beautiful, and incorporate their wedding colors, which she described as “Peaches ‘n Cream”.  They ended up choosing to modify our Yours Truly Wedding Suite to fit their stationery needs.

Josie and Matt’s take on the Yours Truly suite featured an A7 size wedding invitation and 4bar size rsvp postcard that were printed in a single color, a nice deep coral/peach.  It also came with a coordinating invitation envelope in that same coral/peach color printed with their return address.  Josie chose a really warm “Natural White” 100% cotton paper from Holyoke for the invitations and reply cards.  We also rounded all the corners on the two cards to give them an even softer touch.

To save a little on postage and paper, Josie & Matt chose to do a reply postcard in lieu of a card and envelopes for their rsvps.  This postcard was printed double-sided and had their standard RSVP information on one side and their return address on the back.  This card was also printed in the same peachy-coral ink color we used for their main invitation.

Aren’t they pretty?!?  Thanks so much Josie & Matt for working with us on your wedding invitations!  I’m sure the wedding itself was just beautiful!! Congratulations!

Weddings | Corinne and Tyler

One of my very favorite custom wedding invitations from 2015 was a suite we did for a local couple with a very Pacific Northwest vibe!  Inspired by the beautiful landscapes and gorgeous outdoor textures of central Oregon, this wedding invitation suite combines many of our favorite materials, and features adorable woodsy touches!

Corinne & Tyler’s invitations feature rich letterpress ink colors in chocolate browns, tans, and evergreen. Their main invitation, reply card, and Oregon-shaped map and directions card were printed on handmade cotton paper from Porridge Papers in Lincoln, NE.  We laser-cut their oversized t-length invitation to feature a panorama of the Oregon Pacific Cascade mountain range. The mountains along the top include prominent Oregon landmarks: Mount Tumalo, Broken Top, South Sister, Middle Sister, North Sister, Mount Washington, 3 Finger Jack, and Mount Jefferson!

I absolutely adore the fun mix of fonts and all of the cute animals that Corinne had me incorporate into their design!

The RSVP card was attached to the invitation, but came perforated so that guests could tear it off and mail it back.

The suite also included a small, double-sided, map & directions card that was cut into the shape of Oregon.  The front side had a map with prominent roads and freeways, the Cascade Mountain Range, other prominent natural landmarks, and important towns and cities that were related either to the couple or their wedding.  The backside of the Oregon-shaped map had written directions and other relevant information for guests who were planning to drive to the wedding.  Everything was tied together in this suite with rustic, natural twine and the twine had a small maple wood tag hanging from it, engraved with the couple’s wedding date.

For the day of the wedding, Corrine and Tyler had me design a custom, letterpress Mad Lib for their guests to fill out in lieu of a traditional guest book!  I thought the idea was totally adorable and it was so much fun to incorporate the same fonts and so many of the decorative design elements (Squirrels!) from their invitations into their Mad Libs.  I imagine it was very fun for Corinne and Tyler to see what their guests had written after the wedding was over!

Thanks so much Corinne & Tyler for letting me be a part of your special day!
