Steampunk Inspired Wedding





We had the opportunity to work with an amazing set of wedding vendors from around the Minneapolis area to shoot this Steampunk inspired wedding last Spring.  The inspiration behind Steampunk stems from mechanical gears, industrial light, tarnished metals, and inventive eyewear all juxtaposed against a more feminine, organic and whimsical atmosphere.  Designed around this theme, our paper pieces used a variety of Victorian borders and a mix of elegant script and block type to achieve an organic, timeworn quality.  We were so happy to be a part of this gorgeous shoot and want to give a huge thank you to Erin Johnson Photography for capturing this creative collaboration.

Real Wedding: Julie & Nate


Words cannot express how much we loved designing all the stationery  for Julie and Nate’s chic Pittsburgh wedding.  Pulling in bold polka dots and stripes to contrast the soft pink and gold details perfectly expressed their day – seriously sophisticated with a touch of stylish whimsy.   Everything from her lace dress to his custom cuff links created a thoughtful and authentic wedding that we are thrilled to share with you.  The invitation was a mixture of gold and white foil, black letterpress and luxuriously thick papers. A custom wax seal closed a black carrier that packaged all the pieces before going into a lined envelope. Julie and Nate’s custom save the date had a small accordion piece that opened up to tell their love story from when the met to their wedding day.
