ashley & garrett's gold, gray & blush letterpressed wedding invitations

Ashley and Garret were planning the most fabulous wedding and reception at Brazos Hall in the heart of downtown Austin. The turn-of-the century warehouse provided lots of inspiration for the invitations, as it's the quintessential example today's Austin, where old meets new with rustic wooden floors, exposed brick walls and sweeping rooftop views of the city.   For the invitation, we knew we wanted to capture the southern charm and incorporate modern aesthetics that make Austin unique. I started by hand-lettering their names to give the invitation a bold and playful look, and accented the rest of the text with...

kelly + mike's copper foil and dusty blue letterpress wedding invitations

As Kelly and Michael were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted romantic Texas Hill Country affair with the slightest touch of rusticity.

Lauren Covington custom foil foil print foil stamp gold foil houston julia ideson library library wedding navy wedding wedding invitations wedding paper

Andrea and Matt's wedding invitations were such a special project to work on. I've known the Matt since we were tiny tots, and I had a small part in introducing him to his lovely bride, Andrea. While I can't take any credit for their undeniable chemistry and oh-so-fun wedding, I was lucky enough to work with them on their wedding invitations. We took a little inspiration from the wedding venue, the 1926-built Julia Ideson Building, which now serves as a public library in downtown Houston. How perfect is her dress for a 20's-inspired soiree? The gown was even better in-person, dancing to...
