Picture-Perfect Save-the-Date

Bride Kari has always enjoyed being creative. She is a graphic designer by day and an encaustic painter in her free time. It was really exciting for her to have the opportunity to work on her own wedding materials! For her save-the-date, Kari created a gorgeous vintage postcard and placed it inside an envelope to avoid getting lost in the mail. She incorporated her love for letterpress and calligraphy. She was drawn to letterpress and traditional printing techniques but also greatly valued the art of hand-drawn calligraphy.

That is where I came in! In addition to addressing the envelopes, Kari asked me to write a few words to include on their save-the-date postcard. What was created is what you see here! The final product is Kari's picture-perfect design.
