Our second wedding invitation feature from the lovelies at Wiley Valentine is one of their most luxurious letterpress designs. Just look at these images. Paper like this ~ as Abby would say ... swoon!
from Rachelle at Wiley Valentine ...
This is the couple!! How fun that you did a post on their engagement shoot. They are adorable. The couple are organic farmers, so they wanted this to play into the design without being overly obvious. They were really drawn to neutral tones (a trend we are seeing a lot of lately) as well as vintage elements. We had so much fun infusing farming into a sophisticated letterpress invitation. If you look closely you can see the carrots, wheel barrel, watering cans among others! Such a fun job. These invitations were hand letterpress printed on 100% cotton paper, and the invitation was on an extra heavy stock so we could print it on both sides. There was also a colored envelope liner We worked with our retailer in Nashville, TN Social Graces on this job.

from Three Ring Media:
We had the pleasure of shooting Lauren & Paschal's wedding at her organic farm just outside of Nashville TN. They met through one of Paschal's long time friends, who was laying gravel on the road outside of Lauren's farm. This friend knew that the two had a lot in common, the least of which included organic farming. He called Lauren up a week later to ask if he could bring Paschal by to meet her, and see the farm. Lauren accepted, and her conversation began to plant the seeds of a life long commitment between her and Paschal. These two farmers agree that patience is one of the key values they admire in one another. But patience wasn't necessary during their early courtship. In less than three weeks, the two had decided that they had each found their lifetime companion. Watch their story and learn how a chance meeting at the end of a gravel road can lead to a love that is organically grown.
