Concertina Press

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

Modern Love + Hot Pink Flowers

Flower Guide

Photos by:

We all know if there were a wedding glossary, pink flowers would be under an ultra romantic setting. Hot pinks, on the other hand, can instantly modernize a romantic wedding with a jolt of color. So if you needed proof to your respective soon-to-be other that pink flowers have a modern facet, take heed from Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers. She is not only showing a fresh floral arrangement with pink flowers, but she is also showing the same arrangement done in two ways can have completely different styles.

From Sarah Winward: Some flowers naturally look better in certain environments than others, some transform to different moods pretty well. This arrangement demonstrates how the same flowers could be set in a moody and romantic environment, and also a contrasting cheerful and bright wedding. If you see flowers that you love, but that are used in an environment different than the one you are planning for your wedding, consider switching up a few details like the vases and table setting to make it work for your event (paying respect to the season and flower availability, of course.)

Flowers used were: hanging amaranthus, peony, tulip, bush ivy, and festival bush.

Garden Virginia Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

This bride has got some seriously amazing style. Her Lazaro gown is vintage glam to the max, and so are her gorgeous pin curl waves! The bride isn’t the only stunner though — the locale is enough to make any girl start running for the nearest countryside. As always, Gabe Aceves did a wonderful job capturing the day!

From the bride, Dani: I wanted a really natural not over done feel. Basically pulled right out of etsy or Anthropologie. I wanted to take my style and make it something Evan would enjoy as well. Instead of super feminine floral shabby chic touches, I added rough burlap and live moss with dirt. I wanted lots of wood and natural elements.

I began with the color scheme of taupe and neon orange. But there are so many variations of Taupe and orange that it got complicated and at times daunting to stick with the scheme. The bridesmaids dresses were more tan instead of gray brown, etc. So in the end I pulled away from the strict taupe and orange and began adding touches of green and other muted colors here and there. I’m really happy with the outcome. I was going for natural and rough, while being pretty and light.
