wordshop weddings: kelley & benjamin


kelley came in with killer inspiration for her wedding and we couldn’t wait to work with her and ben. her “indian summer” theme incorporated pops of color and tons of antique elements, like pails for the florals and vessels for table decor. her invitations were no different – the coral, pink and green cards all tied in beautifully to the setting with the delicate floral design elements and soft script. kelley put her final touch on this ensemble with a bright floral stamp. we’re still obsessing over it a year later.20161009WeddingCeremonyCleveland-Meyer019







wordshop wedding: lauren & adam

We always say that the invitation is the first thing that guests see that tells them what they can expect during a wedding, and this couple’s story was cohesive from start to finish. From the gold foil on the black invitation to the clock tower ceremony to the sparkler send off, these guys got it right. Everything moves fluidly and flawlessly from one thing to the next. We love the moody and festive feel to the entire event – perfect for that Denver, Colorado winter wedding.



The diagonal layout is such a cool spin to a traditional invitation, and the postcard adds even more playfulness.


Seriously though, check out that foil! Talk about some drama.

carla & bucky

Late last year, we teamed up with Denver bride Carla to realize her dream of dead-of-the-dead inspired invitations. A true ’till death do us part’ couple, the invitations went seamlessly with their wedding in looks and words. Here’s a glimpse of the invites and some beautiful shots of their wedding in Honduras.

congratulations to bucky and carla! we wish you many years of bliss ahead! xoxo, wordshop and the shopgirls.

Carsen & Benjamin

Some of the things we love most: our neighborhood, the people within and what we do. We take such great pride in creating custom invitations for each and every bride because there is a unique story to every couple, every occasion and every season. We want to help share that with the world. Yesterday, we received some very special invites which reflect just that. Introducing — Carsen and Benjamin. Carsen is the store manager for Kismet, the sweet little jewelry and accessories boutique stationed next door to us. She’s a sweet, mellow-tempered beauty who runs shop during the day and creates beautiful illustrations at night. When she came to us after Ben asked her to be his wife, we said ‘we do!’

Carsen had a vision in mind and we had the right printers and paper types to make it happen. She created and illustrated the complete invitation material, making a one-of-a-kind, personal invite.

Congratulations Carsen! We love you, your sweet skills and are so happy to be a part of this momentous time.
