Rachel and Mike worked with our exclusive retailer The Stationery Station and selected our Volusia letterpress wedding invitation suite for their wedding day. The unexpected horizontal card shape printed with a mix of a boldface type along with touches of a classic script font, this design effortlessly exudes casual elegance – perfect for a destination wedding in Napa Valley. The couple chose to add a personal touch with a wine glass motif on each piece and a bright color palette of coral and grey.

Imagine the surprise and delight of their guests when their color palette and destination theme all came together on their wedding day! With the vibrant summery colors sprinkled throughout and the wine country details, this was surely a day to remember!

Working with our exclusive retailer The Village Invites, the final wedding invitation design featured an elegant script in gold foil stamping on a soft white card. The oversized invitation is simplicity at its finest, putting the shimmering gold foil script in the spotlight.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Danielle & Kyle

We are elated to share with you the exquisite wedding of Danielle and Kyle in Lake Tahoe, California.  So many sensational details were captured for their big day from the bride’s dazzling gown to the stunning succulent centerpieces to the breathtaking views. We can tell that the couple had an amazing day and enjoyed every moment. And from the photos, we think it’s safe to say that the rest of the bridal party enjoyed themselves as well!

Danielle and Kyle worked with our exclusive retailer, Folio in Larkspur, to create wedding stationery perfectly fit for their outdoor event. The mix of nutmeg, persimmon and topaz ink colors on our Roseberry design really captures the airy, rustic feel. We also love how they tied in small, square insert cards with circular designs for brunch and rehearsal dinner invitations. Their entire wedding weekend was centered around spending time with family and friends and was filled with many exciting activities, like a welcome party and a float down the nearby Truckee River.

We fell in love with so many creative details that really made this Lake Tahoe wedding personal and unique: the bright pop of color in the umbrellas, the burlap bride and groom signs, the mix of patterns in the groomsmen’s ties, and those sparkling Jimmy Choos (to name a few)!  Fun fact: a 15-minute hailstorm passed through just after the ceremony, though the entire day was filled with blue skies!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jillian & Vander

We have SUCH a treat for you today! This perfectly peach and papaya variation of our letterpress Carmen wedding invitation summoned Jillian & Vander’s wedding guests to quite a sweet event! 100 Layer Cake said it best in their post: Every little detail is impeccable, but it feels relaxed and unfussy at the same time. We couldn’t agree more!

The bride and groom worked with our exclusive retailer, Union Street Papery, and customized Carmen to perfectly suit their event. The design is warm and subtle; strong and sophisticated. The unexpected choice of typefaces set the mood with flair, while the layers of elegant patterns, used in different ways on the various cards in the suite, bring it all together. Bundled in an elegant pocket and wrapped with a stunning letterpress-printed belly band with their custom monogram was sure to get their guests excited to share the day with them.

We say it time and time again, but seeing everything together on the wedding day is what we love most about what we do. Seeing that the custom monogram we designed for them was incorporated into the design of the wedding cake makes our day!

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.

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!
