Dauphine Press in Martha Stewart Weddings!

There’s no bigger honor than to be published in the top wedding magazine and we think it goes without saying that we are beyond thrilled to have our new Presidio suite featured in the Summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!

It was an exhilarating experience for our design team to work with the editors of Martha Stewart Weddings to create this new suite. The process was similar to what any Dauphine Press bride or groom can expect when working with one of our exclusive retailers — sharing details of the wedding, pouring over design inspiration and our design elements to customize the perfect wedding suite. You can read {and see} more on the design inspiration in our Presidio Suite Spotlight post.

Are you inspired by the geometric pattern and palette of greens and gold on Presidio? Do you love the classic fonts and smart border on the invitation card, but want to see them in your wedding color palette? We’re ready to get started designing your custom wedding stationery so visit your local exclusive retailer today and enjoy every step of our custom design process.

Suite Spotlight – Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We are thrilled to share with you our latest Suite Spotlight! Our Presidio suite is one we have kept under wraps for a few months now and we are delighted that it is finally making its debut this week here on our blog, on our website and in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. We think you will find it perfectly on trend and we hope that it fulfills your needs for another stunning take on an Art Deco-inspired event.

Dauphine Press Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

This sophisticated letterpress wedding invitation suite was created for a modern wedding, featuring bold palm graphics and layers of geometric patterns. For the couple that values high design, this collection would be suitable for any extraordinary event in an endless number of color combinations and print techniques. Presidio was originally designed in jade {a custom color!} and sea glass letterpress inks with a splash of saffron gold. We are looking forward to its future customizations, as we are sure we will soon see requests for this suite in brilliant foils mixed with an array of letterpress inks. A few we’re dying to print – rose gold foil with blush and champagne inks, gold foil printed on an elegant duplexed black card or in combination with deep teal ink!

Suite Spotlight – Vignette Letterpress Invitation

The next design in our Suite Spotlight series is the Vignette collection from our original Custom Wedding Portfolio. Over time, this popular, evergreen suite has seen many variations and thus showcases the best of our custom design process.

Originally designed for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as a wedding suite, this “vintage with a modern twist” letterpress printed card is an architecturally-inspired design that blends classic proportions with modern minimalism. The variation we are showcasing today was recently added to our website’s Custom Social Stationery gallery. Customized as a social invitation for a winemaker’s dinner party, it features our black and saffron letterpress inks and a black linen envelope liner.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Adrianne & Jared

Adrianne & Jared are the ideal Dauphine Press couple! They found us through exclusive Dauphine Press retailer Pebble & Peony in Houston, Texas and created their wedding stationery suite based on our Carneros design. Inspired by the original, but wanting to make it their own, they selected a bright color palette of tangelo and french blue letterpress inks. They also modified the design with the monogram and text centered on the main invitation, which made for a more classic layout. Their version of the monogram incorporates a script font and creates the perfect balance of traditional with their playful personalities when paired with the bold chevron pattern on the envelope liner and response card.

With Alexis’ help at Pebble & Peony, the couple took advantage of our design services and had their custom monogram incorporated onto additional details, such as their charming treat packaging. We offer this to all of our clients. When we create something custom for you, it’s yours to use!

We love seeing everything come together on the big day. Adrianne & Jared were no different — we loved playing a role in their special day. If you would like to see more images from Adrianne & Jared’s wedding, you can see the original post and more images on the Style Me Pretty blog. Don’t forget to read the bride’s recap of the day, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the goosebump-inducing details, such as her account of the day being “even more special and wonderful in real life than in daydreams.”  What an amazing couple!

Suite Spotlight – Monterey Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We’re giving today’s Suite Spotlight a little twist! While you’ve already seen the original inspiration for our Monterey design, created for the gorgeous Peony Pop vignette at The Lab Event, today we wanted to illustrate how versatile letterpress and foil invitation suites can truly be. Monterey is perfectly suited for fun and playful affairs like the one designed for The Lab, but it can also make the ideal introduction to a romantic and neutral palette as shown in today’s inspiration board.

The Dauphine Press Monterey Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation has an Art Deco feel.

We love Monterey for its 1960s decor-inspired sunburst monogram in gold foil. In fact, we love it so much that we were sure to include this motif on the accessory pieces to highlight key details, such as the response date on the reply card and the title on the menu card. In its original version, the shell colored letterpress details on the invitation border and on the exclusive liner pattern allowed the sunburst detail to be the star. And, the sweet lemon meringue papers used for the response card and personalized belly band rounded out the color palette, while securing all of the invitation elements. With our custom design process, any of these details could be modified to highlight your favorite detail in any color palette. With a design as versatile and classic as Monterey, the options are endless!

We would love the opportunity to customize Monterey for your extraordinary event. Contact one of our exclusive retailers today to get started on your custom foil and letterpress wedding invitation suite. And, don’t forget to take advantage of our Spring Promotion when placing your order thorough one of our exclusive retailers before June 30th.

We are also very proud to announce that our Monterey suite has been nominated for the 4th Annual Trendy Awards in the bridal category. If you love it as much as we do, please vote!
