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!

The sweet subjects in this image are the perfect signs of spring! We love the delicate red fabrics against the textured and rustic neutrals in the background. It’s a little like our sleek foil stamping on our textured cotton papers. What an excellent spring mix!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Style Shoot – Behind the Scenes

As promised, today we are sharing some of the details that went into the style shoot for our Carneros and Auburn suites.

First, let’s skip to the end result since that’s what this is all about! Have you seen the amazing shots on our new website? Here are a few more:

Dauphine Press Carneros Letterpress Collection

To start the process we scouted the best of the best in stylists and photographers to help us with this exciting project.

Art directed by our very own Katrina McHugh, we selected Megan and Emily of Enjoy Events Co. to help us with styling, Nicole Hill Gerulat for the photography and brought in Georgia Deaver for calligraphy.

Our planning started with Megan and Emily of Enjoy Events Co. Katrina shared our chosen letterpress wedding suites and our vision and inspiration in designing them. Then we elaborated on the type of events these designs would be inviting guests to. After passing thoughts back-and-forth with Enjoy Events Co. they produced their own inspiration boards for the props and shortly after that began shopping for the perfect details.

Dauphine Press Letterpress Inspiration Boards

Now is a great time to bring up the stunning pieces they sourced from One True Love Vintage Rentals. Enjoy Events Co. has worked with Amanda at One True Love Vintage Rentals on a few projects including planning and styling her own wedding this past September. I think everyone agrees that she provided the perfect furniture for the day that really set the tone of each vignette.

Talking to Megan and Emily after seeing the final results of all our hard work on our new website, they were so sweet in saying: “We loved collaborating with everyone the day of the shoot. To see all of the wonderful props we gathered come to life with the invitations was such a joy! We loved how each invitation had a theme to style around and in the end we couldn’t have been happier with how everything tied together in the final photos.”

In addition to showing the final suites in their respective vignettes, we also wanted to create a physical inspiration board for our Auburn suite. The same Auburn suite used in the casual rustic style shoot above, but this time we had a different type of event in mind. You will see that this Auburn inspiration board reflects an event with a more romantic, traditional feel bringing in golds, a soft palette and vintage touches.

This board reflects what we envisioned a couple planning this wedding might have created when pulling all of their design elements and stationery together. At Dauphine Press, our goal is to not only provide the best artisan printing, but to also allow every engaged couple to create a stationery design that is unique to them and their event. With this visual we wanted to encourage all couples working with us to truly use our Design Library to create a one-of-a-kind stationery suite for their unique event.

Now, to get this shot, Nicole and her assistant Mallory had to get really creative. Not only are they amazing at their profession and able to produce gorgeous results, but they will go above and beyond in a heartbeat to get the shot. In addition to saying a few things that made us blush, Nicole had a favorite part of the day to share with us: “The Dauphine Press shoot was a dream shoot because the stationery, styling and lighting made the whole place beautiful to work in. We are all so inspired seeing it come together. My favorite part was the inspiration board. So perfectly styled – and I was at least 15 feet in the air shooting it!”
