Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Chelsea & Aaron

We had the pleasure of working with Chelsea and her Mom in-person. Always such a treat to sit down in our Stone Harbor stationery store and really get to know a bride when designing their wedding stationery. Plus, delivering the final pieces in-person is one of our favorite things!

We describe this wedding as traditional, elegant and full of charm … take a look at the beautiful images captured by Kaitlin Noel Photography:

The fine details they selected – a color palette of black and white with touches of gold – made for a traditional look.

The way they used these elements throughout – black letterpress ink for fine, detailed scripts, gold painted edges, all the way to classic black dresses for bridesmaids – was the epitome of elegance.

And, the thoughtful touches, such as using china with calligraphy {matching the invitations, of course!} for table numbers, and a custom envelope liner inspired by a favorite China pattern – brought it all together on a beautiful day for this charming, thoughtful couple. We’re thrilled to play a small role in such a gorgeous, timeless event!

We would love to work with you too on creating your ideal wedding stationery. Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers so we can sit down in-person, over email or phone and we can start bringing your ideas together into one gorgeous stationery suite!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Lauren & Brandon

Every single detail of today’s real wedding is simply impeccable! Everything from the lush florals, the choice of mixing jewel tones and soft pastels through out, to the table settings, the bridal party attire and romantic stationery come together beautifully. There is so much here to inspire!

The couple chose our Carneros letterpress wedding suite as their starting point. They kept the traditional monogram and chevron background pattern for the accessory cards and selected an elegant script for key details on the invitation. They kept the color palette neutral with espresso and varnish letterpress inks on our double-thick brilliant white letterpress stock, edged in gold.

From there, they made this suite their own by incorporating a romantic and elegant floral paper as the envelope liner and coral colored hand calligraphy for the outside of the envelope. What a beautiful presentation for their guest!

An elegant and {so perfect for the holidays!} damask pattern is printed is in our subtle parchment ink, creating the first layer of this letterpress card. The choice of a subtle ink for the all-over pattern ensures that it will create a beautiful backdrop for the greeting and fine details. Atop the pattern, french blue ink was chosen to frame the family photo and form the holiday sentiment.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Carie Ann & Bryan’s Romantic Wedding Day

We’re about to share a bundle of gorgeous wedding photos with you, but the one thing that stands out the most to us? The smiles! That is really what the day is all about! So, beyond the wedding eye candy, we love seeing the pure joy on the faces of each bride and groom we are lucky to create wedding invitations for!

The bride, Carie Ann, described her wedding to her groom, Bryan, as featuring a “color palette of blue, peach and white, with an emphasis on classic, traditional romance, with a mix of some southern flair.” Working alongside some amazing wedding vendors, this couple certainly accomplished that vision! Take a look:

For the wedding invitation, the couple worked with Dauphine Press Exclusive Retailer The Pleasure of Your Company and selected our Occidental letterpress suite. Our Occidental wedding invitation is designed with a subtle pattern in the background printed in our parchment letterpress ink. Atop this lace-like pattern, is a delicate script font printed in twilight blue ink. These two main elements combine to create an updated classic featuring a traditional monogram.

As a very special touch, make sure you don’t miss all of the places this couple incorporated the monogram from their wedding invitation. What an elegant way to make the day unique and memorable!

Nautical Letterpress Invitation on Wedding Lovely

We were thrilled to have our Stone Harbor wedding suite featured on Wedding Lovely last week. What an honor to have the team at one of our favorite wedding blogs select one of our new designs for this feature. We couldn’t agree more about Wedding Lovely being a supportive hub for wedding vendors and engaged couples. Such a great resource – check it out if you’re not already hooked!

Dauphine Press on Wedding Lovely blog

We were so flattered to have our traditional wedding suite described as “elegant, nautical, sophisticated and rich in subtle details. We admit, we’re blushing!

Beyond this classic beauty, one of the things we love most about Stone Harbor is the versatility of this design. A quick swap of the color palette and monogram design and this invitation could easily transform to suit any wedding day decor. Take a peek at the full post on Wedding Lovely to see more images and read about our inspiration for creating this design.
