I recently had the pleasure of creating some save-the-dates for a 50th anniversary party happening this summer in upstate New York. Inspired by a photo from Anne & John Fay’s 1963 wedding in County Kildare, Ireland I designed the piece to take a page from a photo album of yesteryear. Using a whimsical font, black and white photo prints, photo corners and luxurious letterpress we certainly set the mood for what will be quite the celebration. A #10, fig, paper source envelope and wraparound mailing labels completed the package. The Fay’s have been known to tool around town on their bicycle built for two and have enjoyed a bit of notoriety for it, so we paid a little homage to this most amazing pastime. Hope you like them as much as I do!
The Fay’s celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in upstate New York at the end of July. Here’s how the rest of the invitation suite turned out. Mighty fine, I’d say!
And they lived happily ever after!
