Vintage Image of the Day: 11

Throughout the month of January, we are scanning and sharing a vintage film slide each day. This week's photos are vacation photos from the late 1970s.

Betty Wedding Invitation Suite


This week's wedding suite creation is named Betty in honor of Joan's older sister. Despite their age difference (Betty was born in 1921 and Joan in 1933), the sisters were very close throughout their lives. The above photo is Betty as a baby. Wasn't she precious?

For her wedding suite, we were inspired by linoleum block printing. We wanted something that looked hand-carved and really jumped off the page. The navy and white color scheme accomplishes that nicely. For added impact, we continued the design on the back side of each piece, and then finished out the suite with our preferred mix of classic and handwritten fonts. The timeless mix of color and pattern is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. It reminds us a little of an Anthropologie dress. Can't go wrong with that!

laura wedding suite


The Laura wedding invitation suite is named after my great-great-grandmother and namesake, Laura Stump Dumm. For this suite, I tried to visualize what a 1899 wedding celebration in Ohio would be like. I pictured my great-great-grandmother wearing her mother's handmade wedding dress and carrying a bouquet of daisies. The wedding would take place outside under blooming trees, and family, friends and neighbors would bring food (lots of farm fresh veggies and homemade pies!) for the picnic reception. The day would end with fireworks or a parade.

I'm not sure of my great-great-grandparents' actual wedding date, but I do know they were married in 1899. My great-great-grandfather was born on the 4th of July, so I decided to make that their wedding date. Red and greige seem a fitting color combination for July 4th park wedding, and the embroidered daisies fit with the summer picnic vibe. Thanks to the rich colors and classic fonts, this wedding suite could also work really well for a rustic or vintage-inspired fall or winter wedding.
