Navy and Copper: Stephanie and Christopher's Stunning Invitations

We couldn't wait to post the photos we documented of Stephanie and Christopher's invitation assembly. Their fall wedding is going to be so gorgeous with all the dark navy blue and copper accents. Not to mention all the bling that she's adding throughout. This bride chose a custom metallic navy blue pocket folder that is only offered by Paper Crew. The thermography on the invitation and enclosures shine on top of the ivory metallic card stock. When closed the invitation reveals the guests' names adorned with more rhinestone embellishments. The entire package fit into a metallic copper No.10 Envelope. The copper accent will match the linen at the reception, and the bling will be scattered throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. We can't wait to do the rest of the stationery, like programs, place cards, signs and more, as well as the see all the beautiful photography from the day of.
This invitation is offered at Paper Crew. You can request a quote by email, go to the retail store in Long Beach, California, or order through their Etsy shop - here.

Hot Pink and Chic!

This entry is long overdue. Kristianna and Bryan created a Damask Wedding with a twist and a little bling! With the creative genius of Vanessa from V3 Events, their wedding was absolutely gorgeous! This wedding has been featured on several blogs: Inside Weddings and California Wedding Wave. Gavin Wade Photography captured all the details of this beautiful day in the Laguna Cliffs of sunny California.

Paper Crew created a welcome sign to guide the guests:

Bling Diva Designs provided the cherry on top. So gorgeous and goes so well with the cake from It's all about the cake

Paper Crew also provided the gobo design:

PAPER CREW stationery details:

The absolutely stunning 4 panel accordion pocket folder Damask invitation. Included the couples engagement photo as well as metallic invitation layered and wrapped with a satin ribbon and adorned with a rhinestone buckle. The reception card and directions continued with the theme while the rsvp card displayed the fun loving side using animal characters for food choices. The bride received her responses in a hot pink metallic envelope complete with a custom Damask stamp design. Wrap up the whole invitation with a belly band saying:

"Together we laugh, we dream, we love, and on this day, we marry..."

Color coded ribbon let the waiters know what food choice each guests requested. I must say that I was quite impressed with the way Vanessa and her V3 team set up the escort cards. So unique and beautiful!

Extra special place cards for the Bride and Groom:
Damask Menus mounted on Hot Pink metallic were tucked into each napkin.
Photo Shenanigans provided the awesome photo booth and provided the couple with this awesome favor. We completed the package with a label and ribbon closure. Such a great favor idea from Photo Shenanigans!

Our famous Damask Wedding Programs provided a memento with Wedding Party and Order of Ceremony information.
Table numbers adorned with satin ribbon ties and V3's blinged out frames!
Various signs carrying the same theme. This one: "love Sweet love" for the candy bar.

Thank you signs to carry on the day of but to use for their thank you cards.

Beautiful Spring Damask Invitation

I had the pleasure to work with Jamie on her entire stationery suite for her Spring Wedding. Jamie's invitation featured a black linen silver foil printed invitation mounted on a green accent cardstock and then mounted again on a metallic white cardstock that carries her damask design printed in black thermography. The invitation definitely carried a "wow" factor.

Joanne & Dennis Los Angeles Wedding

I'm so happy to be blogging about this couple. My dear friends Joanne & Dennis were married last November 2010 at the beautiful Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church located in downtown Los Angeles. This is one wedding that I was lucky to be a vendor for and still had the honor to be able to attend as a guest. Which, unfortunately is rare. I'm used to just making all these extravagent stationery items then having to say bye, in hopes that the bride will share pics on Facebook or even better email them to me.
Joanne is a natural at planning. I can't believe what she was able to pull off in 6 months time. Her dress and shoes were so beautiful. I love-love her shoes! I really hope she finds another occasion to wear them because they are too adorable to be kept in the closet.The reception was absolutely beautiful. Her ideas and Dennis' attention to detail really paid off and showed on their special day. The lighting, centerpieces and small stuff like bubbles on their first dance were all stunning. Take a look at this picture that Callo Photography captured of their first dance. Isn't it like they are really on cloud nine? I adore this picture.
Paper Crew did all the stationery starting from the Save the Date magnets that were tucked into a mini pocket folder with Accommodation information. This was just the Save the dates!
I never got around to taking a full shot of the entire wedding invitation package, but it was gorgeous. Chocolate brown with accents of champagne metallic paper and lavender ink. The invitation was set in a pocket folder which was enclosed by a satin ribbon and laid into a beautiful box with a custom address label band. Inside the pocket was yet another folder sealed with a band titled, "Wedding Information". Inside were accordion steps for each bit of information.
The drawing just doesn't do it justice. I'm gonna have to take pictures and write a whole other blog about it soon. The reception stationery that I'm especially proud of are the Picture Teepee Escort Cards. Four rotating pictures of Joanne and Dennis' engagement shoot filled the personalized escort tee pees. These were such a hit and so darn cute! You can find similar ones to these available on our Paper Crew Etsy store, which was feature on the! "Eat, Laugh, and Drink at table..." typography on the back side, frame bracket pictures with names of your guests on the front side. These teepee lay flat and are not flimsy like the regular standard tent cards.
Isn't this such a great escort table idea. "live-laugh-love" frames in the background helped put together such a sweet table. I'm so glad that I busted out with my old iPhone to take these pictures.
Joanne just gave us the inspiration and we just ran with it. I get carried away sometimes, but when I see pictures of all the hard work, it's so worth it. I don't even have any pics of the custom menus, table numbers, gift card 3-tier box, or programs to really show all the details. This was such an adorable way to get the smaller kiddos down that aisle. Paper Crew provided a sign that said, "Here comes the bride" on one side and "Just Married" on the other.Look at this cake from Rossmoor Pastries. I have always had a hard time watching them take the first cut when the cake it this grand. It looks too nice to eat. And below you'll see Paul and I attempting to model for our "Thank" and "You" signs that we created for the photographer to take with the bride and groom holding them. Perfect to use for thank you cards!
Can't wait to post all the upcoming Valentine's goodies. Happy 2011 everyone!
