Well Sent: Christina & Bryan Wedding Invitation

February 22nd, 2011

I’ve been trying to think of a new section to add to Twig & Thistle to keep things exciting and fresh here. The latest “Well Branded” series, where I highlight some of my favorite brands and identities, seems to be a big hit so I thought I’d try a new series called “Well Sent”. Well Sent will feature invitations, announcements and general correspondence in an attempt to celebrate one of our oldest forms of communication.

Our inaugural feature goes to this lovely wedding invitation for Christina and Bryan letterpressed and designed by Rabe + Company. Inspired by the wedding location, an old factory, and a few of the couples favorite restaurants, the invitation picks up some distinctive details.

I love the mix of bold type paired with classic filigree. The format is completely unexpected and modern for a wedding inviteĀ all while celebrating a times past.
