Tracy + Stephen, Part Two: Electric Boogaloo.

Our friends, Stephen & Tracy, are so in love that they needed two ceremonies to fully celebrate their cosmic connection . . . one on the beach in Malibu, California (previously mused about here), and one for close family on Stephen’s beloved aunt & uncle’s farm in Indiana.
Based on their wish to have an old-time romantic look for the ceremony, and the fact that they were wed in a cozy rural setting, we designed an invitation inspired by antique ephemeral pamphlets found in country general stores. All our design cues stemmed from turn-of-the-century Farmer's Almanacs, so we utilized typefaces and decorative elements found in our collection of Victorian books.
The 6-page custom-designed invitations were printed on soft vanilla-colored paper, with the cover a thicker weight paperstock, and each booklet was bound with a linen string. For the RSVP card, we perforated the back page of the book to make a detachable postcard that could be sent back to the bride & groom.
For the save the dates, we designed and letterpressed postcards inspired by antique flower-seed packets, each printed in chocolate brown ink on recycled kraft paper.
