Oy vey, well it’s been quite the busy summer around here! I swear until this very moment we haven’t had two seconds to blog, so please accept my apologies for the radio silence! But we have some good reasons and I am thrilled to present one of them.

Silverado Trail Wedding Stationery Suite

Marissa and Kevin initially connected with us through Lindsey of L’Relyea Events last spring and when I heard about their plans for a Calistoga wedding (hello) as well as their refreshingly unique color palette, I was hooked. Then they started talking about how they love texturey-paper and visiting wine on the Silverado Trail and I knew something special was about to happen.

Marissa and Kevin knew they wanted their wedding stationery to be a custom design and they also loved letterpress printing, so the suite started taking shape from there. With a classic, yet contemporary wedding aesthetic, the design incorporated graphic grapevines and clean typography. An illustrated Napa map insert flat printed on Arturo cardstock featured locations that were pertinent to the wedding weekend, as well as the aforementioned favorite wineries along the Silverado Trail. The entire invitation suite was enclosed in a kraft pocketfolder, tied with hand-dyed organic twine and sealed with a cream wax seal featuring the couple's wedding monogram.

The elements were later carried into a bevy of Day Of materials, ranging from Program Fans (to combat the July heat in Calistoga) to Favor Hang Tags, Hanging Escort Cards, Place Cards, wine varietal Table Numbers, Signage and beyond. They even incorporated the graphic scheme into their photo booth prints and an etched wooden guest book.

You can see all the photos of this stationery suite in our portfolio here. Or check out some preview photos of the actual wedding from their photographer, Stacey Pentland  (be ready for some major wedding eye candy) here. I’m sure there will be more to come from all the amazing vendors Lindsey pulled together for this affair!

Congratulations and Thank You, Marissa and Kevin!!!

Welcome to 2011 everyone! Here in San Francisco, we’ve had some pretty wonky temperatures as of late, resulting in these insanely gorgeous sunsets. I attempted to photograph the epic sky on the beach by our house a few weeks back… Wouldn’t these blazing oranges, golds and pinks pop in a bouquet against a blue or purple dress?

As fall comes to a close, I look back on the past few months and wonder where it went. Seems like fall never quite sticks around as long as you want it to. Probably because it's one of the best times of the year. I snapped this photo in my front yard of a newly planted tree. What a nice surprise it was to find out the leaves turn such a vibrant yellow!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone! Yesterday I gave thanks with friends here in San Francisco, and snapped this image of cranberries, apples, pears, late season strawberries and citrus fruit settling into a punchbowl of wine and brandy. Fall flavors and colors are my favorite! The drink was pretty sweet too ;-)
