Cool black and white wedding

August 8, 2008

It’s been rather hot around here, and so we’ve found ourselves wistfully looking at photos of cooler weather. Among them, these detail shots of area photographer Laura Novak’s chic winter wedding this past February. It’s always exciting to do an invitation for a vendor we work with, and I know Vanessa was thrilled to create Laura’s unique stationery suite. Her invites were letterpressed on thick cotton stock, before being duplexed to the offset pattern pictured below. Because the crisp white invite begged for the contrast of a dark envelope, Laura choose jet black lined with pink for both her outer and response envelopes. Both were engraved with her hot pink motif, and hand caligraphied by Betsy Dunlap in white.

And as you may have noticed, we can’t get enough of our black, white and punchy pink motif, and couldn’t resist one more post on the subject!

If you’d like too see more fun photos of this wedding and the day of items we designed for Laura, check out these posts on the Bride’s Cafe: pt. 1, pt. 2, pt. 3.


Black and white with a twist

Posting about all the fun details of Jaclyn and Dan’s wedding reminded us of how much we love black and white with a punch of juicy pink. Here are a few ways we’ve been using this combination recently…
