our invitation

Creating all of our paper goods for the wedding might have been one of my favorite parts of planning. Lexi is co-owner at Paper & Poste and was so fantastic working out our design with us and was possibly the most patient vendor we worked with. We clicked from the moment we walked in at our consultation, and it honestly felt like chatting with a friend throughout the design process. I kid you not, my email chain with her was 70+ messages long. I asked a zillion questions and carefully considered every single detail (I must have looked at over 3,000 script fonts)... 

For many parts of planning, you have to wait until the actual wedding day to see things come to life, but the invitations are one box you get to check off earlier on and actually have the opportunity to enjoy. We got so many compliments from friends and family after they received their invite and I really appreciated that because they were a labor of love! I could not be more pleased and proud of how the final product turned out. 

[[ You can't see it very well in the photos but if you look closely you can see our logo at the top of the invitation. We actually reversed the typical letter press process and kept the border and logo raised, and the background 'pressed' with a very light grey fill. It's super subtle and according to our stationer 'had never been done'! ]]
