I’ve been following Courtney’s blog for quite some time now and am always amazed at the beautiful paper goods she creates under her line, Flush Designs. I love how she incorporates an old world style in all her invites and always designs something a little different for each custom set. I asked her if she would share a little more about what went into the stunning set she created for Courtney and Erin’s wedding…
The letterpress invites included
old vintage drawings of sea life and pine cones. The wax seal used
through out the wedding, gave it that old elegance and a sophistication
with the monogram. The invites are held together with twine and then
tied on is a tiny manilla tag that we tea dyed to look old, These tags
were also used as the escort cards tied in the tree as the guest first
entered. I made the programs with a mix of letterpress and ink jet. All
the signs are a mix of all the elements in which she took to Jill Valez
for calligraphy. My favorite is the welcome bag note and artwork. I
made up a welcome limerick that tied to the welcome bag with a sweet
brown and white gingham ribbon, inside was the 3 color letterpress
prints I made as a keepsake for the guests.
I also want to take this oppurtunity to brag on Courtney a little too. Not only does she create incredible invitations, take amazing photographs, but she also is a design enthusiast. She created the arrangment below to showcase the invites above for Once Wed and I have to say I was floored when she sent me the images above and below. Can you imagine just going to the floral mart and whipping together something so gorgeous?
