Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Rachel & Mike’s Napa Valley Destination Wedding

You  may be able to guess from the geographical names of many of our Custom Wedding Portfolio II wedding invitation suites that all of us at Dauphine Press are fans of the Napa Valley Wine Country. We’re excited to share Rachel and Mike’s Napa Valley destination wedding with you today! Every detail and element they put together for their wedding day resulted in pure perfection! Take a look for yourself!

Rachel and Mike worked with our exclusive retailer The Stationery Station and selected our Volusia letterpress wedding invitation suite for their wedding day. The unexpected horizontal card shape printed with a mix of a boldface type along with touches of a classic script font, this design effortlessly exudes casual elegance – perfect for a destination wedding in Napa Valley. The couple chose to add a personal touch with a wine glass motif on each piece and a bright color palette of coral and grey.

Imagine the surprise and delight of their guests when their color palette and destination theme all came together on their wedding day! With the vibrant summery colors sprinkled throughout and the wine country details, this was surely a day to remember!

Suite Spotlight – Camille Letterpress Wedding Invitation

At Dauphine Press we’re fans of seeing a process from start to finish. Last week we mentioned how all of our designs are created from inspiration boards and how we love this tool for couples planning their wedding. We feel so lucky to be in the position of creating something physical and tangible based on an inspiration board that someone lovingly created to honor their union. This is what our entire custom design process is all about! Save the Date cards and Invitations are often the first physical element of your wedding! We all know that your wedding stationery is the first glimpse your guests get into the upcoming soiree, but it’s also the first piece of your vision to materialize. That’s a big deal! One that we don’t take lightly.

We created our custom design process to make sure that you can be involved in that process – from start to finish – and put your personal touches on every element along the way. We love working with our clients, hearing your vision, collecting ideas from an inspiration board and watching a unique design develop. We love hearing from our brides and grooms about that moment when you first opened your package from us, holding your wedding invitation in your hands for the first time – one that you created from start to finish and how the excitement about the big day starts to reveal itself from that point!

Today’s spotlight is on Camille, a square letterpress wedding invitation suite. Camille is another one of our versatile designs that we hope will inspire you to create your own wedding invitation. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing different patterns and colors. Take a peek at the path we took for this original design:

Included on our website are lookbook pages with suggestions for additional pieces and multiple variations for each design.
