Emilio & Neely Wedding Invites and RSVP
Emilio and Neely are my neighbors. Emilio is a technology engineer — as a child, he was fascinated by astronauts. Emilio meets Neely, his pretty princess, and together they decide to embark in this adventure called marriage. They wanted an invitation that was down-to-earth and that looked like them. They’re both interested in the same books, stories, games, films, so we went with a film poster inspiration where the astronaut-groom is taking his princess-bride on an adventure around the earth. I did the illustration of them myself. The tones used match Neely’s pearl dress and blue eyes.
125 suites were letterpressed on my manual 1860’s Peerless platen press. Invite is on 220lb, RSVP on 110lb. Emilio and Neely reported they’ve received a few dozen messages with compliments on it, and many people said they’d frame their invite. The wedding was lovely too.
