Our wedding invitations.

Charming, right? Open-mouthed smiles are our favorite.

Still feeling the Hatch Show Print vibe from our Save-the-Dates, Kurt had the bright idea to model our invitations after vintage boxing posters. I got right got down to business, gussying up the classic poster concept with a little playfulness and a lot of orange. I wanted it to match the fun and casual feel I've imagined for our wedding. I tried my darnedest to make it look like "us". Ha, well, there's no argument there - We had them printed as 11x17" posters, and I'm sure everyone who receives one will be just thrilled to have such large renderings of our ridiculous, beaming faces. Haha! That's love, those smiles.

I also decided to make this matchy little wedding website.

A note on fonts: I love the font I used for these. It is League Gothic, courtesy of The League of Moveable Type. If you are the kind of person who gets hot and bothered about typefaces, The League of Moveable Type will make your heart go pitter-patter. They offer the most beautiful, well made, open-source fonts - all free. Peruse their fonts and read their manifesto.

Our wedding is less than two months away! That is nuts! It has been pretty quiet around here, as far as wedding talk goes. I've been saving it all up, so I can melt your faces with an onslaught of wedding-related posts. So stay tuned for that.

Special thanks to our good friend Justin. He printed these posters for us, and we are so thankful.

    Could you tell me the name of the script font? The one that you used for "Blackacre"? I'm a little obsessed with fonts and I love that one!
