Ann's invitations

My little sister kindly gave me full creative freedom to make her wedding invitations this summer. It was really fun, and - bonus! - I got to watch pretty much the entire first season of Little House on the Prairie on DVD the Saturday I printed/assembled. Indignation towards that Nellie Oleson and her mother fueled my creative energy.


On the top is the little map. Dan proposed to Ann this spring at the cherry blossoms, so I wanted to include that romantic detail from the cutest couple in the whole world. Fortunately most of the people who came to the wedding reception already knew where my parents lived, or had GPS, because this map was not actually helpful in the traditional map-sense of the word.


I used my trusty gocco machine to print most of the pieces, with the exception of the announcement.



Ann and Dan got married in a beautiful and small ceremony in the LDS Washington, DC temple. We thought it would be friendly to hand-write the cards for this part, since it was a small group.


We had the announcement itself letter-pressed by Jordan Ferney. She did a beautiful job.


and then everything got bundled together and tied up with hemp string.

Congratulations, again, Dan and Ann! I love you guys.

I love this, so sweet!! Where do you get your Gocco supplies? I have a press and some ink left but can't figure out where to buy the screens or bulbs. Any direction would be appreciated! Thanks.

Great great great! This whole idea and execution is in a class of its own. And Ann and Dan are the cutest couple in the world (I say this never having met Dan, but knowing Ann and knowing she would have to be the other half of the cutest couple ever).
