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!!!


E+C’s flat printed custom wedding invitation suite with a peach and slate watercolor succulentCongratulations are in order today on the destination wedding of Eddiemae and Colin! The couple are a Custom client and inspired one of our favorite invitation suites to date. I first met Eddiemae last summer at Fizz & Frills here in San Francisco. The couple is saying “We Do” in a traditional Mayan ceremony on the beach in Tulum, Mexico. I simply CANNOT WAIT to see photos from the event because along the way, Eddiemae shared many of her D-I-Y ideas for the decor and other details (think contemporary, artsy pinatas overhead and hot sauce escort cards!) Stay tuned for a feature about their invitations, weekend agenda and escort card hang tags!
