Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Carie Ann & Bryan’s Romantic Wedding Day

We’re about to share a bundle of gorgeous wedding photos with you, but the one thing that stands out the most to us? The smiles! That is really what the day is all about! So, beyond the wedding eye candy, we love seeing the pure joy on the faces of each bride and groom we are lucky to create wedding invitations for!

The bride, Carie Ann, described her wedding to her groom, Bryan, as featuring a “color palette of blue, peach and white, with an emphasis on classic, traditional romance, with a mix of some southern flair.” Working alongside some amazing wedding vendors, this couple certainly accomplished that vision! Take a look:


For the wedding invitation, the couple worked with Dauphine Press Exclusive Retailer The Pleasure of Your Company and selected our Occidental letterpress suite. Our Occidental wedding invitation is designed with a subtle pattern in the background printed in our parchment letterpress ink. Atop this lace-like pattern, is a delicate script font printed in twilight blue ink. These two main elements combine to create an updated classic featuring a traditional monogram.


As a very special touch, make sure you don’t miss all of the places this couple incorporated the monogram from their wedding invitation. What an elegant way to make the day unique and memorable!


It’s no surprise that Carie Ann and Bryan’s wedding was featured on the Baltimore Bride blog. Take a peek at their post as they have a ton of fun details about this gorgeous day.

Client Customization – Sweet Letterpress First Birthday Invitation

We have a sweet customization for you today! We love to see our wedding invitation designs transformed into invitations for all kinds of events. With just a few easy changes, our Camille wedding suite was transformed into a delightfully elegant first birthday invitation.


Shifting the color palette to a range of peaches and oranges with traditional black wording is the first step in transforming this design. Then, swapping out the patterns for graphic florals result in a depth of pattern and color and adds interest. To add a touch of surprise, a second graphic floral pattern in a deeper orange was added to the back of the invitation. Finishing touches include the painted edges, matching envelope liner and striking cartouche on the return address.

We share all of these great designs to show you how easy it will be to customize your very own invitations. Plus, we have a wonderful group of retailers to help you create the perfect stationery for your event!


Client Customization – Updated Classic Letterpress Wedding Invitation

An updated classic is always a “win” in our book. This letterpress wedding invitation exhibits an overall harmonious balance with a classic botanical framing a monogram created from a traditional serif font. The one-color design keeps it traditional, but with that single color being a vibrant blue and the absence of a script on the long, thin card; this wedding invitation is the perfect expression of a modern couple.


Where do you stand? Are you classic, modern or a mix of both? Let us or any of our exclusive retailers help you find your perfect balance and a beautiful invitation for your wedding day!
