Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jennifer + Brandon

Today’s bride, Jennifer, said it best herself:

“It is so wonderful to see all the details come together and look more outstanding than I could have ever imagined.”

It’s that moment that every bride longs for. In the name of love, every minute of planning comes together on your big day. We’re thrilled to be sharing those details from Jennifer’s wedding to Brandon today.

Real Dauphine Press Weddings - Jennifer + Brandon

Jennifer and Brandon teamed up with Stacy McCain Event Planning to create an enduring affair for their guests. From the venue, to the florals, the brides accessories and the paper details, every element fell perfectly into place with effortless beauty.

Working with Dauphine Press exclusive retailer Union Street Papery, the couple chose our Ivy suite as inspiration for their wedding stationery. Personalizing the letterpress invitation with a natural color palette of spring green and espresso brown gave their guests a glimpse into the gorgeous outdoor affair in store. The couple also chose a deep brown backer card to frame the invitation and carry out the look. With a touch of tradition, they customized the design to include a layout with all of the text centered on the card, over the whimsical offset layout of the original design.

With classic place cards directing guests to their seats where they found the 2-color letterpress menus tucked into the perfectly coordinating napkin and the invitation design duplicated on the wedding cake {we LOVE that touch!!!} this fabulous fete is one of our favorite real Dauphine Press weddings!

Suite Spotlight – Beechwood Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

The letterpress printed wood grain pattern of our large square Beechwood invitation is the standout element on this Bar Mitzvah design. Used throughout the suite in buttercream ink, the wood grain pattern is artfully paired with a wide cocoa colored backer card, a green tea pocket folder and woodblock typeface. On both the inspiration board and final printed suite, a masculine, yet playful look is achieved.

Suite Spotlight – Tayla Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

Our Tayla letterpress bat mitzvah invitation design is a beautiful balance of sweetness and spirit! The lovely allover floral pattern, coupled with the flowing typeface adds a bit of sophistication to this fresh and youthful letterpress design. The linear envelope liner, colored envelopes and pocket on the reverse of the oversized invitation add even more pop and interest to this suite.

Tayla also transforms beautifully into a wedding invitation suite. Playing with all of the design elements, like swapping out colored papers, liners and ink colors or changing the font or background pattern on the invitation, make this letterpress suite the perfect starting point for your unique stationery.

Dreaming up all of the options for Tayla has us thinking about this recent post on The Perfect Palette. Color has so much power and we love Chrissy’s blog for celebrating that. Can you imagine our Tayla suite in shades of orange and aqua? How about traditional black and gold? Layers of neutrals would be so stunning, wouldn’t it?

Any of our exclusive retailers can help you explore all of the {endless!} options for designing your stationery wardrobe – whether it’s for a bat mitzvah, wedding or holiday invitation!
