As the year winds down, we are thrilled to share some wedding photos by photographer Carlie Statsky which were recently featured on Style Me Pretty. Renée and Michael were our first clients to get hitched in 2014 and they hired us to design a custom stationery suite for their event. We had a lot of fun coming up with ways to integrate their romantic, elegant aesthetic with a rustic setting and personalized details like the Claddagh ring and monogram. Their venue, Holman Ranch is nestled in bucolic Carmel Valley, California surrounded by wineries and studded with ancient oak trees. All of these elements were brought into the suite which came to life in a palette of soft blushes, peach, navy, gray and cream.

The Seating Chart directing guests to their assigned tables. We have seen a huge uptick in orders for these as an alternative to individual Escort Cards – they are practical for outdoor weddings and more affordable for larger guest lists. Plus they are a fun way to tie the wedding “brand” into some printed signage. Photo by Carlie Statsky.
