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.

Along with our recent new design posts we are also sharing with you more details on the new embellishments each new design showcases. Our latest new design, Fairfield, is printed on our new Luxe Board duplexed stock. Today we’re sharing with you everything you need to know about duplexing our colored papers.

All of the colored papers in our Design Library (a total of 37 different colors) are available as duplexed stocks — and in three different thicknesses. Here’s a great visual showing all of the options!

Note that our thickest option, our Luxe Board with the 30pt board mounted between two colored sheets, does show the white board (as seen in the image above) so we do recommend painted edges with our Luxe Board option — unless the white suits your aesthetic. The choice is yours!

As we mentioned last week, colored papers pair perfectly with our new opaque inks and foil {more to come on our expanded foil palette!}. Contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to see all of these options in person and to start designing your own custom suite!
