Vendor Spotlight: Gus & Ruby Letterpress

We had a great conversation with Samantha from Gus & Ruby Letterpress yesterday, and if you're looking for a relaxing and intimate experience, you must stop in! While their shop is absolutely adorable, the love for the work that they do truly shows. Oh, and the pups are so adorable!

What makes us stand out in our industry? First, we are both very passionate about weddings and feel that every part of planning a wedding is really important and special - not just when a bride is picking out her dress. So when a bride or couple comes in, we give them a glass of champagne and sit them down to chat. And we don't just chat about what they're looking for in paper products, but the whole wedding! We really want to get to know our clients to visualize their dream wedding. Each moment and experience should be as amazing and memory-filled as finding that perfect dress. Second, is our custom designing and the vendors that we work with; we carry vendors that others don't have and represent the best of the best. We like to meet with the vendors to make sure it's a quality product; something we can stand by.

What do we like to do in our spare time? We don't have too much spare time, but I've been an equestrian since I was little so I truly enjoy riding. And for Whitney, well she's an incredible skier and field hockey player (skiing and playing field hockey for Plymouth State College). We're both very close to our families, so spending time with them is really important to us and we love to bake and spend time hiking with our pups!

What charity are we supporting and why? The ASPCA. We figured it was most appropriate since our dogs are a big part of our business--I mean it's named after them! It's so cute because one is like 10 lbs and the other is like 50lbs...and they're so in love :)

Check out some of their invitations!
