Last week we introduced you to Anne and Mike, one of our invitation couples who were married earlier this year at the historic Santa Barbara Mission and held their reception at the breathtaking Four Seasons Biltmore. Today, we are delighted to share their custom invitation suite.
Based on our Camille wedding invitation, Anne and Mike chose to customize their stationery with a tile-inspired pattern that reflects the Spanish colonial heritage of Santa Barbara. Anne and Mike’s ink choice was a dreamy combination of tangerine and turquoise, which was surely inspired by a seaside Santa Barbara sunset.
We send our sincere congratulations to the happy couple!
We recently had the pleasure of working with a lovely local couple, Anne and Mike, to design and print the invitations and day of pieces for their Santa Barbara wedding.
To tie-in to the look and feel of their event at the Four Seasons Biltmore Resort, Anne and Mike selected the Grammercy suite from our Coral wedding line for their menu and other reception pieces.
Their charming and classically Californian event was photographed by the brilliant Ray Erwin, who was voted one of the top ten wedding photographers of 2009 by American Photo. He recently featured Anne and Mike’s wedding on his blog – click here to see Ray’s beautiful work and more details from Anne and Mike’s joyous day.
Check back next week when we feature Anne and Mike’s invitation suite in a to-die-for tangerine and turquoise color combination.
Client Services Manager Kendra Bellah is just back from a fun girls weekend in sunny Lake Tahoe in honor of her soon to be married sister Sarah Gross. We were delighted to design and print both Sarah’s save the date and invitation suite in a cheerful and radiant palette of lemon and pool — perfect for a summer wedding in Northern California. Sarah’s stationery was recently featured on one of our favorite blogs Oh So Beautiful Paper. Click here to read the entire post about the inspiration behind this brand new stationery suite.
Last week we took a peek at Melinda and Aaron‘s gorgeous engagement photography. Moving right along in the planning process, we’re having a look at their gorgeous wedding invitations, a lofty design from our Coral collection that we call Maybeck. When Melinda first saw this design come to life in our studio, she knew instinctively that this was the invitation she had to have for her wedding. It also happened to be Aaron’s favorite, so they customized it in a palette all their own.
From our statistical records and research data going back eleven years, experience tells us that the couple who agrees on wedding stationery right off the bat is guaranteed a happy and harmonious marriage.
Best wishes Melinda and Aaron!
Wedding bells continue to ring at Dauphine Press, this time for Melinda McVay. Melinda is an elite member of the A-Team, the unsung heroes of our print studio. She and her fellow teammates make it all come together for each and every job that carefully passes through our hands. Melinda gives new meaning to quality control. She oversees plate making, packaging, shipping and makes sure every ribbon, grommet, backer, tip-on and assembly is letter-perfect every time. Her attention to detail is consummate, so of course we’re not in the least bit surprised that she’s turned her love of perfect details to her upcoming wedding.
Even before Melinda and Aaron took to riding a vintage Schwinn tandem (a Christmas gift from Aaron), Melinda had a keen interest in wedding photography. When it came to the ever-important engagement shoot, Melinda and Aaron really wanted an unexpected approach that would stand out. Fate and genius lead them to Roger and Lyndzee Ellsworth at Eplove. One look at these photos and it’s evident why the couple traveled to Southern California for the shoot.
Some of Melinda and Aaron’s photos were also featured at the Wedding Chicks. The wedding is taking place in a few short weeks at an apple farm in Sebastopol, California. We cannot wait to see how Eplove captures their big day. We will be posting more of Melinda’s creative details in the weeks to come.
