An English Wedding: Invitation Suite

It was a pleasure to work on this lovely letterpressed invitation suite for a wedding in England. I love the special detail of handwriting the guests' names on the invitation itself.

Charlottesville Calligrapher: Wedding Shower Invitations

I had so much fun creating these shower invitations for my dear friend. I got to play with watercolor and gouache on top of the calligraphy, which was a delight. It was exciting to have creative license over an entire project, from the invitation to the envelopes. 

Thanks to the ladies at Rock Paper Scissors for the lovely Crane envelopes and for their recommendations! Printing thanks to local Charlottesville printers T&N Printing.

I was so thrilled to write this letterpressed invitation suite for our friends Julia and Matt — and equally delighted to team up with the talented Patrick Costello again! Patrick did the beautiful floral design and layout of the suite, and the invitation was then letterpressed and printed by Mom & Pop's Print Shop in Charlotte.
