the vintage appeal of your type combinations is really beautiful, Alaina! The black and white is perfect here too! No need for color since the type has so much going for it!!

Such lovely type! Two things, the archive antique extended seems a bit squished and the "and" feels a bit off to the left, I'm sure it's aligned center but optically could move right a touch.
