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!

Designer’s Inspiration {week twenty-eight}

 

Dauphine Press Designer's Inspiration - Paris

This week we are sharing two pins that we find inspiring as a pair. This Paris sign and fashion shot under the Eiffel Tower are the perfect invitation inspiration with the black and white {or rather, the slightest pastel pink or blue} color palette, the scroll detail and hatched pattern on the intricate sign and the architecture of the Eiffel tower. A perfect pairing that has us wanting to see these elements in stationery.

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Kristen & Eliot

Today, we have a gorgeous real Dauphine Press wedding to share! You’ve already seen our post on Kristen & Eliot’s wedding stationery, ordered through our exclusive retailer Judy Paulen Designs, but today we’re showing you the full picture — wedding photos!

The client’s vision, along with the hard work and talent of their vendors {especially the amazing planning and design duo at Enjoy Events Co.}, was captured beautifully by Braedon Photography. We are loving all of the amazing details, from the gorgeous location, Beaulieu Garden in Rutherford, California, to the perfect blush touches in just the right places and the chevron-patterned, gold sequined linens. Absolutely gorgeous!

We adore this shot of the couple’s full wedding wardrobe. It paints the full picture and shows that coordinating pieces can have great impact. With our custom design process, you’re not forced to choose pieces that perfectly match. Instead, you can personalize each piece and modify elements to create your ideal suite. For instance, the lush florals appear on the first panel of their save the date trifold and backside of their response card and are balanced by the bold graphic patterns on the second panel of their save the date and the backside of their response card. The duplexed warmed white colored paper, custom blush ink color and shine from the pearl foil create a subtle, yet show stopping suite.

To see more details of this exceptional wedding, see the feature on Martha Stewart Weddings.

Dauphine Press in Today’s Bride

We have been seeing some great coverage in our favorite magazines lately. This week we heard from Today’s Bride that one of our timeless designs was featured in their 2011 issue.

Our design team created an invitation suite for the bride and groom that has become a best seller over the years. Larisa and Carl were married in 2007 and asked us to create a suite with a “world traveler” feel. We created an invitation design using a vintage world map as the background, whimsical touches including a head-on airplane motif and traditional wording on an untraditional horizontal card.

To top it off, we created a passport menu for their reception, which inspired their cake design.
