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.

Client Customization – A Regal Variation of the Larkspur Suite

The Larkspur Suite is one of our best sellers here at Dauphine Press, so we are very excited to show you a gorgeous and exceptionally regal customization of this very versatile design. Our exclusive retailer, By Invitation Only, worked with their client to create a stately version of this letterpress and foil invitation suite. Still loving the engraved style font paired with a classic serif as well as the decor inspired patterns of the original, this bride and groom chose to alter the color palette, making this suite their own. It’s nice to see that with a simple and smart color palette shift the overall feel of a design can be personalized. You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel – just pick your favorite elements and we will run with it!

Get the Look – The Great Gatsby

We have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Great Gatsby movie for some time now and we are thrilled that the date has finally arrived! We are looking forward to enjoying all of the visual goodness the movie promises to showcase. In the meantime, we found even more of the luxury of the 1920s displayed in a recent Vogue cover shoot. Playing Daisy Buchanan in the movie, Carey Mulligan is all about that vintage glamour feel in this fresh color palette from the shoot.

To capture the art deco feel, our team is envisioning our opaque, caramel letterpress ink paired with metallic copper foil on a thick duplexed card in the perfect neutral shade of cameo. With decorative accents like the ironwork-inspired pattern and a pop of raspberry double-faced satin ribbon, the look is complete!

Trend Alert – Rose Gold

Our design team is always keeping their eyes out for new inspiration and trends. As you know, we often blog about our inspiration, but today we’re starting something new {drum roll please} – “Trend Alerts.” With this latest post, we plan to share fresh, emerging trends that we look forward to translating into stationery design!

The first trend our team has their eyes on is the timeless metallic, rose gold. Rose gold is a soft, neutral metallic, which can be paired with other metallics and/or just about any other color. It is sweet and romantic, making it perfect for spring and summer weddings.

Get the Look – Secret Garden

It’s clear that this time of year is a very inspiring time for all of us here at Dauphine Press {we just can’t stop talking about it – see proof here and here}. This piece of inspiration is perfect for the season and a great starting point for a custom wedding invitation suite. This gorgeous shoot from the pages of Vanity Fair features the beautiful Amanda Seyfried in an ethereal garden setting.

This stunning color palette {and overall look and feel} would translate well to a letterpress wedding invitation. Imagine the natural white 100% cotton paper letterpress printed with our wisteria ink and foil stamped with a touch of pearl. The look would be complete with a pop of fuchsia edge painting and a fresh, almost neutral, green {try Napa green!} envelope liner.
