Wedding WEEK is Here!!! Look at our invitation!

Hey everybody!

16 months ago, I proposed to Meredith. 16 months have come and gone, and now it is the week of our wedding!

SOMEBODY.PINCH.ME.

Each day this week I'm going to share a little detail from our wedding. These little bits are meant to not only tease you, but tide you over until we get back with eleventy-thousand images!

Today's post: Our Wedding Invitation!
Since we only sent out a handful of invitations, we had the $$ to go all out on them.

Enter: LETTERPRESS.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE LETTERPRESS. I love the feel of it in my fingers. I love it's rich history. I love the romantic subtleties it manifests. I knew that I wanted letterpress (yes, I'm a groom who has an opinion - it's been Meredith's curse - haha!)

A father of one of our absolutely wonderful and beautiful brides (Casey), Alan Sowers owns a working letterpress that is over a hundred years old. I love the history here! Meredith contacted him to see if he'd be willing to press our invitations (thankfully there weren't many) and he was so kind to let us use his services. It turned out beautifully!

Amy, our lovely friend and Sincerely Yours, brainstormed (more like hurricane, really) how we would package our perfect piece: Red box with gold calligraphy; open to a golden envelope (Mere added those flowers - a lovely touch); open envelope to the letterpress piece mounted on gold shimmery paper. Recipe for romantic invitation achieved!

Don't ya think?





Talk to you soon,
Dale
