This ice-cream-loving couple sent a "pint" which held saltwater taffy to get guests in the mood for the oceanside affair. Each was embellished with an illustration of Long Beach Island's famed lighthouse and featured witty text descriptions of the couple. The "LBI Seaside Sundae" was made with "Blondie Bar and 6ft. 6in. of Brit-tle," which hinted at Katie's hair color and Colman's height and English background. A letterpressed disk with a magnet on the back popped out of the lid.
To announce their wedding date, the bride took an image from an old Work Projects Administration poster she found at the Grand Teton National Park visitors' center, shrunk it down digitally, customized the type, and added a tiny couple vowing "I do!" on one of the peaks.
These save-the-date postcards were inspired by old romance comic books from the 1960s. Retired comic book artist Scott Rosema drew a custom cartoon of Sam and Ian. Working closely together on the design, he added personal touches that friends and family would recognize. The setting of the postcard is the spot of the proposal (and the ceremony) at Sam's family vacation home on Shelter Island.
In a nod to the wedding location (an alpaca farm) yellow and white wool twine wraps around the save-the-date. Packaged in pillow envelopes with custom llama postage from Zazzle, the small spool-style card lists the basic details of the wedding and the couple's wedding website.
Corinne sketched the Empire State Building, scanned it, and printed it on gray card stock for their save-the-dates. Then she and Eoin filled in the clouds with colored pencils and added a heart to the windows. Folded in thirds and sealed with a clear sticker, it gave guests a preview of the iconic structure they would see from the wedding venue.
