I created this a while ago, for a wedding that took place on January 2, 2010. I've changed the names on the samples from this set that I share online to protect their privacy.
The majority of the final pieces were printed using letterpress, except for the items with variable data (e.g. table numbers). The place cards also originally had the names and table numbers filled in by a calligrapher.
The bride was extremely happy with how everything turned out and how I was able to help make something that added to the vision of her wedding day. Sometimes she was afraid she was being too picky (I didn't think so). I really liked making this set and I'm proud of the results!Not pictured:
thank you cards that the clients decided not to use (because of printing costs), the seating chart (a fillable PDF that they could edit as needed, so it had variable data), and a sign for their box of cards to be received from guests (only printed once, not letterpress).Stock used:
a fancy swirl from the ornate vector swirls set by Room 122 (Nathan Brown)
. The swirl with the heart was original stock that I created.Fonts:
Copperplate was used for the majority of the text (in various weights), with the script primarily Snell Roundhand, and select script capitals based on Edwardian Script ITC (special customization to the names of the bride and groom).The Map:
I used a Google map of the area as a guide for the map on the info/directions card, but it was simplified and stylized based on the look the couple wanted.
This was a fully custom set, so it's an example of the type of thing I can do for custom designed wedding suites. I also do template design
