David and Lorie came to us in search of a wedding invitation that matched their eclectic style. They are getting married at the beautiful Bijou Theatre in Knoxville during their church’s Sunday service. The rich colors and textures of the theatre lead to a steampunk theme that carried its way through their wedding and reception. It was important that the invitation be rich and intriguing without being overly fussy. A brown paper bag was used as the outer envelope and sealed with gold striped washi tape. Each address was typed, by yours truly, on my Mom’s vintage typewriter and placed on the front. When opened, a vellum inner envelope was sealed with red wax to introduce another layer of texture and depth. A subtle lace pattern was pressed into the creamy cotton stock framing the gold letterpress text. It was so much fun to work with unique techniques on this job for such a fabulous couple – best wishes to you both!!
And a BIG thank you to Jessi at 5 Rings Photos for the amazing photographs. Typing out each address took longer than anticipated but it was worth it to have the typewriter included in these images – totally frame worthy!!
