Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jennifer + Brandon

Today’s bride, Jennifer, said it best herself:

“It is so wonderful to see all the details come together and look more outstanding than I could have ever imagined.”

It’s that moment that every bride longs for. In the name of love, every minute of planning comes together on your big day. We’re thrilled to be sharing those details from Jennifer’s wedding to Brandon today.

Real Dauphine Press Weddings - Jennifer + Brandon

Jennifer and Brandon teamed up with Stacy McCain Event Planning to create an enduring affair for their guests. From the venue, to the florals, the brides accessories and the paper details, every element fell perfectly into place with effortless beauty.

Working with Dauphine Press exclusive retailer Union Street Papery, the couple chose our Ivy suite as inspiration for their wedding stationery. Personalizing the letterpress invitation with a natural color palette of spring green and espresso brown gave their guests a glimpse into the gorgeous outdoor affair in store. The couple also chose a deep brown backer card to frame the invitation and carry out the look. With a touch of tradition, they customized the design to include a layout with all of the text centered on the card, over the whimsical offset layout of the original design.

With classic place cards directing guests to their seats where they found the 2-color letterpress menus tucked into the perfectly coordinating napkin and the invitation design duplicated on the wedding cake {we LOVE that touch!!!} this fabulous fete is one of our favorite real Dauphine Press weddings!

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.

Suite Spotlight – Chalk Hill Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Here, in Northern California, spring has arrived in full force. The days are longer, the sun is warmer and everything is blooming. It’s the perfect time to share our Chalk Hill wedding invitation suite and inspiration board with you. Chalk Hill was inspired by the pastoral landscapes of the wine country, which is displayed on paper in our wisteria and copper letterpress inks. The winding florals and calligraphic typography of this custom letterpress design make it the perfect choice for an event that is rustically romantic.

The Lab Event 2013 – Part II

In an earlier post, we shared a few Instagram shots from The Lab Event and the Peony Pop vignette we were lucky enough to help bring to life with the help of some of Northern California’s top wedding vendors. Today we are thrilled to be sharing photographs of the final vignette taken by the incredible (and always adorable!) Pictilio photography team.

The original Peony Pop inspiration board was chosen by The Lab Event and Snippet & Ink to be presented as one of the vignettes at the event. Along with Pictilio, we were paired with A Savvy Event (Design & Coordination), Valley Flora (flowers), Sweet on Cake (cake) and Milk Glass (vintage rentals) to bring this mix of retro fun and romantic elegance to life at Cline Cellars. Enjoy!

You can see more images and read more about how the entire look came together on both Pictilio blog, A Savvy Event blog and Snippet and Ink.

Are you inspired by the Peony Pop vignette? Does it have you brainstorming ideas for how to style your big day and incorporate your Dauphine Press custom letterpress and foil stationery? If so, you can contact one our exclusive retailers to start the process!

If you are looking for even more inspiration, next up is our Suite Spotlight post on the Monterey letterpress and foil wedding invitation suite we created for the event.

Suite Spotlight – Kentfield Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

Here in Northern California it’s been a few weeks since we’ve seen any rain. In fact, there’s been just enough sunshine to start wearing open-toed shoes. We know there is more winter weather in store, but it doesn’t keep us from daydreaming about spring. Today’s inspiration board, highlighting our Kentfield suite, is not only a reflection of this gorgeous letterpress printed suite, but it’s also a reflection of what’s in our hearts knowing that spring and even more sunshine are just around the corner.

Our Kentfield design is perfect for the romantic couple. Whether your venue is outdoors like scenes from our inspiration board or in a dramatic ballroom, the floral design surrounding the text and frame adds a soft touch. Letterpress printed in our buttercream and metal inks, this combination gives the illusion that the French engraving cuts and timeless typography are sitting atop a bouquet of begonias. Each card incorporates the same design elements, but each in a unique way to add interest to this enduring design.
