CLASSIC SEASIDE LETTERPRESS INVITATIONS | Cape Cod Massachusetts
september 19, 2015 / nina and ed's wedding
This summer we had the pleasure of meeting/working with Nina and Ed. They wanted a wedding suite that really captured their love story, and that was playful yet classic at the same time. We asked Nina to give us a little run down of her invitation/wedding experience as a whole, and here's what she had to say:
"I actually heard about Printerette through a friend from college who saw a post on them on Instagram and said “hey, can you believe it they’re in Minneapolis, you should check them out!" and right away Catherine’s work piqued my interest. Ed and I met with Catherine and it felt like love at first sight. We got into the car following the meeting saying to each other that we not only were fairly sure we wanted to work with her, but that we also wanted to be her friend and kidnap Moose. We did not have a picture in our heads for our invitations, etc., but we wanted something playful, unique and different. We were clear that we wanted nothing nautical, and nothing preppy. We made a couple of tweaks from the first draft Catherine created, but she pretty much nailed it. Our invitation, program, escort cards, and signature cocktail sign fit seamlessly with the day we envisioned.
Catherine incorporated a drawing from Cape Cod where we would be married, the bridge in Amsterdam where we got engaged, a tandem bicycle which was a bit of a nod to our life in Minneapolis (and Amsterdam and Cape Cod), all in colors and a style that felt like us. I vividly remember receiving the package of programs and escort cards and the cocktail signs in the mail a couple of days before the wedding (of course we left that until last minute!) and saying to myself- “YES! We are ready now.” Catherine pulled everything together, but in an understated way. Our wedding day was unseasonably gorgeous weather and we had such a blast! We wanted to highlight our friends and family, have a laid back, but killer party. We used lots of white and green in our flowers, ombre tones for the bridesmaids with navy suits for Ed and the groomsmen."
