Today’s real wedding comes from our own neck of the woods in Northern California. Photographed by Briana Marie Photography and planned by Suzy Berberian Weddings this event was a true stunner.
We are absolutely in love with the vintage sophistication of this celebration. The intricate motif, elegant fonts and rich color palette work well with the styling and decor of the event. Seeing all the details come together, we think the beautiful letterpress design is a perfect fit for Wine Country and this happy couple.

Doesn’t it officially feel like fall now that we’ve turned our calendars? Even though the weather forecast for today says 95 here in Sonoma County, fall is definitely in the air with a chilly start to the day before temperatures began to rise.
This week also marks the 1st anniversary for a very sweet Dauphine Press couple. It was such a delight working with this couple, their family and our retailer Pearl Grant Richmans in NY on this invitation suite. Since our orders come to us through our exclusive retailers we don’t always get to know the couple and their families very intimately, but this very gracious bride and her mother have personalities that really shine, which means we had the pleasure of getting to know them a little. We’re so glad we did too!
As a result, the couple shared their wedding photos, taken by the amazing Tom Wall Photography, and we are excited to share them with you today.
They chose our Zinfandel design, which perfectly suited their formal fall wedding with the rustic branches printed in our cocoa letterpress ink. The Zinfandel design is a true classic. We especially love the book art details in the copper backer card and espresso ribbon corners that give it an old world feel.
Happy Anniversary to this lovely couple!

In the spirit of summer, below are a few photos from a wedding we worked on with the amazing Sasha Souza. Carrie Nelson and Jon Spurlock were married last year at Carrie’s parent’s rice
farm in Pleasant Grove, California. The illuminated barn is such a beautiful touch!

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.
