Handmade Envelope Liners
The envelope liners were designed and printed—then traced, cut and glued in to add Chicago flare & protection in the mail.

Each guest received a "#/100" marking on the first page of their guidebook—letting them know each book was hand made one by one in a limited quantity.
The Suite: Wedding + Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

Our Favorite Spots on the Map
We mapped out our favorite Chicago restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, tourist attractions and architecture for our guests to have on-hand while traveling to Chicago. Many of our friends had never been to the city before so we were excited to share our recommendations visually.
