Vintage Hollywood Shoot

Everyone loves a great inspiration style shoot — us included! It’s an even bigger treat to work with some of the most amazing wedding vendors out there and collaborate on creating visuals that will inspire brides and grooms with every large and small detail.

This Vintage Hollywood shoot is no exception. Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, these beautiful details are the result of a collaboration with MLKL PhotographyOlam Weddings and Kerry Quade.

Vintage Hollywood Style Shoot

Stylistically, this suite’s chic typography was inspired by high fashion with a nod to the mid-century design. The gold foil impressed into the soft cotton paper is what gives this suite the rich and luxurious feeling associated with vintage Hollywood. The delicate, foil-stamped border and text is reminiscent of gold jewelry and truly catches the light like a diamond ring. The palette is still bright and beautiful — the whimsical, Wisteria-colored, hand-painted edges and a custom envelope liner give it a little vintage ’60s, beach-side flair while remaining sophisticated.

Suite Spotlight – Kensington Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Kensington suite is a star around here, not just because of the delicate foil stamped border in reflective gold foil, but it is the perfect marriage of letterpress and foil on one piece. This beautiful balance of letterpress and foil on a single card creates a gorgeous impression from a distance, but also begs you to hold it in your hand and run your fingers over the deep letterpress and shift the card to catch the light on the foil.

Inspired by the styles of the 30s and 40s, this suite sets the tone for an affair that is stylish and classic with its fonts and motifs in a mix of bright fuchsia letterpress ink next to the reflective gold foil. Each piece incorporates a different twist on the delicate foil stamped border and is also edged in our fuchsia edge painting, which perfectly frames and finishes each card.

And the inspiration board … I have no words beyond “it takes my breath away!” Gorgeous! Our design team really outdid themselves with this one!

The Kensington Suite

The strength of this design carries it through all of the different color combinations we’ve printed it in. Some of our favorites are satin silver foil and pool letterpress and edging inks, traditional black letterpress with gold foil and even allover copper foil. You really can’t miss with this design.

Aren’t they to die for?! Painted edges add that perfect touch!

Our favorite paper blog, Oh So Beautiful Paper, included our Belvedere design in a recent post on gold foil! Visit the site to see Nole’s post “Inspired By: Gold Foil“.

One of our amazing retailers, Sweet Paper in La Jolla, California, recently contributed to The Bride Suite blog with one of their Concierge posts. The Bride Suite’s Concierge posts include advice, tips and trends from wedding professionals. The ladies at Sweet Paper included a collection of their favorite invitations, stationery, gifts and paper accessories in their post — and our Kensington suite made the cut!

The team at Colin Cowie Weddings included our Marinwood letterpress trifold design in their article on their favorite save the date cards. If you haven’t seen it yet, their new website is a great resource for brides! Not to mention tons of fun to lose yourself in with all of the gorgeous images and details!

In real wedding news, we love how much we can learn about a bride, her groom and their event through their wedding invitations. It’s the ultimate reward for us to see photos from the wedding day after working with a bride on her stationery suite. Here’s a collection of gorgeous weddings photos for a bride we worked with through another amazing retailer, Taylor Street Paper in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

We hope you’ve enjoyed Fine Details from The Fine Print! This is a new format for us, but we couldn’t pass up sharing some of the amazing things happening here at Dauphine Press. Let us know if you want to see more fine details!
