Marry, Mary, Quite Contrary

For the past year we have been working like busy bees to make Mary's wedding beautiful and perfect. It has been our testing ground for our future plans to design lovely weddings for all brides. Check out our process.

Save the Date

It all started here with the save the date card. Mary had found really cool skeleton keys for the table cards, so we wanted to start it off with the key concept. We thought that creating a a key ring like concept would be perfect. Then Mary came up with this amazing copy, that was on each key... to my love, to kisses, to passion, to my match, to my heart, to it all. Check it out.

Book of Love

A lot of love went into Mary's wedding invitation. It was a dream project for the both of us. The invite was all very handmade with the exception of the letterpress cards. The letterpress was printed by gilah press + design. As you can see they did a beautiful job. The front and back cover was wrapped in book cloth and stamped with a Gocco Press. The inside pages of the book were created with kraft paper. It was all packaged up in a muslin cloth envelope that was then mailed in a kraft paper envelope. It really was a true representation of Mary and Dave. It also conveyed the feeling of an outdoor vintage styled wedding to come. We must give a big thanks too all of our friends and Mary's sisters who tirelessly helped us glue and sew into the wee hours of the evening. Now, that is true friendship...Cheers!


Screen Printing 101

Ice Cream Social learns how to screen print! Our trusty friend Dan, gave us a tutorial on screen printing. Thanks to Dan we learned how to create these awesome welcome bags for Mary's guests at the wedding!

and voila! The final product.

Everyone received buttons to wear for free welcome drinks. Sweet!

Our First Flea

Ice Cream Social was so honored when Etsy asked us if we would like to come and hang out under there tent and sell some cards at the Brooklyn Flea. It was a frigid April day, but none the less people came out in droves to support there flea urges. We met lots of great people and sold lots of cards. Here is a short video Etsy made from the flea, that features Ice Cream Social.
