Alexis and Brian drew inspiration for their custom wedding invitation from Wes Anderson films (think Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel) and the vibe of their rustic venue, Josias River Farm in Cape Neddick, Maine. It had to be colorful—but not bold, vintage—but not campy, and modern—but not unwelcoming.
The invitation card was printed on pale mint paper, backed with an off-white recycled paper for thickness, and then printed using a large custom rubber stamp. The coral RSVP postcard was written in a Mad Libs style and was assembled and printed the same way. All the pieces were packaged together with coral twine and a hexagonal card made from a vintage Maine postcard. A kraft pastry bag stood in for an envelope and added just the right amount of quirkiness and vintage flair.
