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.

jill & david

It takes a special and completely intertwined couple to do something Jill and David were so bravely willing to do. Let your true couple selves thrive and show in your save the dates. Trophies and pizza?? Can someone please let us in on this one?

We asked the newlyweds what the picture was all about and here’s what they had to say, “The save-the-date was made up of all the things we love: pizza, trophies and dressing up for strange photos.” Guess we can’t argue with that.



Congratulations to Jill and David. We loved working with this fun and lively pair to help them print their save the dates and put together the invitations to their special and beautiful day. All photographs of their wedding are provided by the incredible Rebecca Shehorn. See more of her work on her site.

vendor interview: mr. boddington’s studio

Nestled in a small unique cranny of the busy and ever-bustling New York City resides a small print studio known as Mr. Boddington’s studio. There is no real Mr. Boddington’s, only a character whom rather embodies all the characteristics of the individuals in the shop making a full, real portrait. At Wordshop, we have been long in love with the work of this print shop and with the warm welcoming of their new work into the shop we thought it a good time to call up the big sir and ask a few questions.

WS: this mr. boddington, is still a bit of a mystery to us. is he a manhattan resident? upper east side or lower east side?

Mr. Boddington’s Studio (MBS): Mr. Boddington is not a New York resident, actually. He was born in Great Britain and takes no particular place as his permanent residence. He travels the world home-hopping from yachts in the Bay of Bengal, castles in the countryside, treetop huts in the jungle, you name it. He is too attached to adventure to settle into one home. (Although he does visit New York City often where he entertains friends in a beautiful ivy-covered brick brownstone with a private garden terrace in the West Village).

WS: what’s his design sensibility? (translated into greeting cards of course)

MBS: Polished and quirky.

WS: what’s the best part pf the biz? the ascot? the witty profile? the smart papers?

MBS: Maintaining a sense of humor. We do this with Mr. Boddington as our muse and guide and it carries over into both our design and the overall vibe and camaraderie here in the studio.

Thank you so much to Mr. Boddington and his loyal greeting card creators workly humbly and beautifully in New York. Check out their work and blog here and escape into their world of whimsy.

 

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.
