What happens when two talented graphic designers, who also happen to be the bride and groom to be, decide to DIY their entire wedding suite, printing included, themselves? Pink and gold letterpress wedding invitation and save the date perfection, that’s what happens.
JP and Kiera met when they were both attending the Parsons School of Design so, when it came time to create the paper elements for their wedding, they saw it fitting that they would create everything themselves. After window shopping dozens of fonts, researching wedding blogs for ideas and inspiration, and making a trip to a flower warehouse and photographing elements and colors that they loved, their concept was a lock.
The couple took a letterpress class at a local Brooklyn shop and printed their save the dates themselves in mid-January. The biggest challenge, they said, was in cutting the cards and lining the envelopes!
The wedding invitations were a further extension of the save the dates, and the design process was truly a collaboration, with JP setting the type and Kiera, who is also a talented illustrator, drawing the flourished letter extensions. During the process, the two said that they learned just how much they were meant for one another — don’t you just love creative projects that bring you closer to your partner? Best wishes, JP and Kiera!
