Real Wedding: Jennifer and Rishi

Finding the right words to describe this real wedding is a bit of a challenge because every image takes our breath away. Jennifer and Rishi celebrated their marriage at the stunning Carneros Inn in Napa Valley and truly embraced their cultural heritage with a Hindu/Christian hybrid wedding. Along with their talented event designer Laurel Anderson of Esla Events the couple put together one of the most heartwarming events we've ever seen. The combination of Hindu and Christian traditional garments, the soft blossom and sage color palette, the incredible scenery and delicious local wine and foods make up one spectacular celebration. One that we're sure will inspire many future brides.

We recreated one of our archived designs into a modern invitation that would flatter both the Hindu and Christian ceremonies. The invitations matched the scenery of the location and the gorgeous floral arrangements by Crimson Horticulture Rarities.

The Lab Event - A Success!

We had a blast at The Lab Event last weekend and wanted to share a few pics of the jaw dropping vignettes that filled the barrel room at Cline Cellars.   Guests were able to stroll through these themed areas gathering ideas, inspiration and even some sweet treats like monogrammed cookies and (I-can't-believe-these-are-vegan) cupcakes!

One of our vignettes had a "Toasted Marshmallow" theme with warm brown tones, gold accents and plenty of rustic wood and twig textures.  The menus had a burlap-inspired pattern framing text and a floral sprig and was letterpressed on a recycled cotton card stock.  We're so happy with the way everything turned out, we plan to offer the entire suite on our website soon.  Stay tuned!

How cool is that chandelier?  Its made from branches, Christmas lights and a few Ikea light fixtures... someone please DIY and let us know how it turns out!

Jen Musty from Batter Bakery blew us away with all her delectable desserts like Meyer Lemon shortbread cookies and Key Lime tarts.

The lovely ladies from The Collection Event Studio, styled a fantastic booth full of vintage flair and wedding inspiration galore!

The best part of the project was meeting so many amazing and talented vendors that we can't wait to work with again!

Real Wedding: Devorah and Carlo


It's hard to imagine a more beautiful couple getting married in a more beautiful place. Devorah and Carlo conquered both coasts of the country before wedding at the Trentadue Winery in Sonoma County. Catherine Hall captured every delicate detail of their big day among the beautiful California backdrop. With a warm summer night and a lively band, the event was sure to be magical! We also loved reading the story about how each side of the family contributed an heirloom or tradition, and how simple and comfortable the proposal was.



We had the pleasure of printing the couples wedding invitations and table stationery, and adore their warm and rustic decor. Congratulations Devorah and Carlo!

Heartland Evolution


We thought y'all might be interested in seeing all the great ways we've riffed our Heartland/Apple Farm design.  So many people have adapted it to their own farm setting— so we thought it would be nice to share!   Above is our original Apple Farm design on the left and a super cute version that Melanie Case commissioned on the right. Love the apple and orange on the same branch, brilliant!


How sweet— a Michigan Cherry orchard and a ceremony in Sun Valley Idaho! Love the horseshoes and the cowboy chic.


Then Eunice did a great riff on the Sun Valley Idaho version for Shannon and Jason and their Texas ranch wedding.  It's fun to see the two versions of the trees— we got it right on the bottom RSVP with the more deciduous looking variety. Check out the adorable Super 8 film of their wedding here.


Another great aspect about Heartland is that we can often substitute motifs from our other designs with great results!  The motif from our Vintage Rose design was perfect for the garden wedding on the left, and our Mi Amor birds went wonderfully with the Mexican flags on the right!



Such a perfect design for a Napa wedding!
