Get ready for the Lab Event 2013

After having such a great time last year, we are thrilled to be participating in the Lab Event in 2013! The Lab Event is a big party containing amazingly styled vignettes created by some of the top trend-setting wedding industry professionals Northern California has to offer. In a laid-back setting, couples experience inspiration boards brought to life, sips and bites from some of the best caterers, sweets and treats from top dessert designers, a vendor library, a non-traditional runway show, and one heck of a party to round out the night. Northern California brides, if you haven’t purchased your tickets already – we’d definitely suggest you do so ASAP by clicking here. They always sell out and time is running short.

This “Peony Pop” inspiration board was submitted through Snippet & Ink and chosen by the Lab to be recreated at the event. Below are some favorites from the Pinterest board we were assigned.

Peony Pop | The LAB 2013

Our favorite part about the event is the creative collaboration it inspires. Each vendor is assigned to a team and we couldn’t be happier to be part of the group bringing this board to life! Here’s an overview of the amazing wedding vendors that we’re lucky enough to be working with on the Peony Pop vignette:

A Savvy EventA Savvy Event is an incredibly talented Event Planning and Design Company located in Wine Country. They offer everything from full service planning and design to consulting, and have done a great job pulling the vision for our vignette together. We don’t want to spoil anything but trust me you’ll want to stay tuned. It is going to be AMAZING.

PictilioPictilio is the husband-and-wife photography studio of Vitaliy and Candace Prokopets, and they are in the business of making love. Yes, you read that right! They take pictures and blog in hopes of inspiring couples to not only stay committed to one another, but to stay in love. Their lovely business cards each include a different idea for a date night.

Rutherford on Snippet & Ink

We hope everyone had a wonderfully Happy Thanksgiving yesterday! To keep with the holiday spirit of this week, we wanted to share a recent Snippet & Ink inspiration board that featured our Rutherford suite. It’s so much fun to see how other creative minds interpret our work and the results here are absolutely beautiful! Feast your eyes!

Suite Spotlight – Yountville Letterpress Wedding Invitation

The latest suite in our Sneak Peek Series has a fun and unique history. Our Yountville suite was inspired by a board created by one of our favorite bloggers — Kathryn at Snippet & Ink. Initially we fell in love with the colors and preppy style of the board. We found ourselves coming back to it over and over after having it pinned up on the wall in our design studio. She really did nail it! Finally we decided that it was the perfect jumping off point for a full letterpress wedding suite and Yountville was born.
