Today I’m completely crushing on these elegant, modern black and white letterpress wedding invitations by Fourth Year Studio for Alan and Megan’s July celebration. The classic elegance of a black and white color palette is enhanced by wonderful textural details like blind debossing (swoon), a tulle wrap, and a gauzy, vellum overlay.

Dianna from Fourth Year Studio shares about this beautiful letterpress suite:
Megan and Alan are two talented young architects, and it was no surprise that they thoughtfully perfected every detail of their wedding. Their event was elegant, clean, and beautiful – modern with traditional undertones. The palette is simple with black and white with layers of complimentary textures.
After receiving an addressed calligraphy envelope with custom postage, the guest will pull out a package wrapped in tulle. As the tulle is unwrapped a vellum overlay is removed to offer a reveal of Megan and Alan’s names blind pressed with a deep relief into 220lb crane lettra cotton stock. A series of pressed bars accentuate the black text to add another layer of texture. A map of the wedding location illustrates a blind pressed river with the venues located. The final piece of the set is the rsvp pocket and reply card. It was important to house the smaller rsvp card and envelope without losing the feel and proportion of the set.
