Grace and David: super festive custom illustrated letterpress wedding invitation

Grace and David: super festive custom illustrated letterpress wedding invitation

A shared love of music and pop art inspired this thrill-seeking couple’s beautiful invitation. With bright-color queen, event planner Melissa McNeeley, we designed graphic icons that captured Grace and Dave’s quirky sense of humor and represented some of their favorite things, like their beloved dog, Triple Decker, and tacos. The groom’s obsession with punk art and luchador masks blended with the bride’s love of color in an elegant and entertaining way that pleased both traditional and contemporary palates. On the wedding day itself, their jewel and neon hues reappeared in their foil-stamped cocktail napkins and the colorful streamers that lined the walls, and guests could find their tables by searching for the lasercut icon that matched their escort cards. We are so honored to have helped create this funky suite for Grace and Dave!

One thing that is not obvious from the pictures is that Triple Decker is centered on the back of the inner envelope with the fabulous streamer lining.
