A Wedding Between Two Ferns

Last month we featured Luke and Robyn's Mount Hood wedding invitation set. Sticking with the Oregon theme, this time we head south for Julia and Detlev's wedding on the Umpqua River.

Both the wedding ceremony invitation and the rehearsal dinner invite feature fern imagery – somewhat abstractly on the main invite and more realistically and delicately for the rehearsal.

A Mount Hood Wedding

Perhaps you saw our 2013 blog post detailing the underused letterpress technique of halftone screens. In short, we can use tiny dots and on-paper ink mixing to create the illusion of gradations and multiple ink colors.

For Robyn and Luke's Timberline Lodge wedding, we used just two inks (a very light gray and a dark blueish-gray) to create a photo-realistic image of Oregon's Mount Hood.

To accompany the invitation, we printed an info card with a tear-off reply postcard (this one with a halftone bird because, hey, put a bird on it), a small rehearsal dinner invite, and a custom woodgrain-lined envelope.
