AndieAugieWeddingMemoire Studio

While searching for a past clients wedding day photos, I came across these stunning images …thank you social media! Congrats to Andie & Augie, married on September 10, 2016 at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California. [photography by Mémoire Studio].

We customized my square, booklet-style pocket folder invitation suite by incorporating their navy, blush & beige theme colors. For the reception stationery, we picked up all the design details from the invites onto the menus, seating cards, and program fans (Andie tied her own ribbon embellishment onto the fan sticks)! I also love that we added the gold-glitter card stock to the escort tent cards & menus, a very glamorous touch.

After their save the dates were sent out [see below], Kate & TJ wanted to customize my SF city skyline wedding invitation suite. We changed the paper colors and fonts, and moved the skyline to the top of the 5×7 invite card.

We also carried on this design style & paper color combo for their reception stationery; table signs, large format program, and 2-layer escort tent cards!

Congrats to Michelle & Raphael, married on August 22, 2015 in Santa Monica, California!
STD_postcardMichelleUyen, from Sassy Girl Weddings, first asked me to design their Save the Date postcards incorporating blush & gold colors. For the reception at Casa Del Mar, we needed glamorous stationery to complement the venue and the couple’s romantic theme. Below are just a few stunning photos [by Sun & Sparrow] showcasing not only the escort, table & menu cards printed on soft blush metallic finish paper with dark gold ink accents, but some incredible inspiration of Uyen’s wedding planning expertise!

We created various reception stationery pieces for their big day; table & dessert tents, cocktail & dinner menus for frames, escort tents + seating cards for the place settings, along with welcome cards & thank you tags… all customized to match their invitation design. I really enjoy seeing that it all came together beautifully! (with thanks to their inventive event planner, Freida, too).

Creatively Fun Update:  I wanted to quickly showcase another example on how you can customize your “periodic themed” reception stationery!  Tami sent me her invitation to design from (on left), so I could easily customize her table cards & escort tents to match!

[real wine wedding] amanda + brian in sonoma

Congrats to Amanda & Brian, married October 1st, 2011 at Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma, California!

I’m so glad amanda found papercake! We first designed their save the date eat, drink & be married, then carried on the color & typography theme throughout their invitation suite.
[shown below: square stardream metallic iris pocket folder & flame envelopes; tag & enclosure cards printed on ivory matte cardstock; satin orange ribbon & ivory guest & return address label wraps].

See below for more design inspiration; I’ve chosen just a few of their gorgeous wedding day photos (shot by Mike Huyn Photography.)

>> I provided all the reception stationery to match & I love how they slid the escort cards into each wine cork (they added a slit in all the corks plus flattened out one side so they wouldn’t roll).

A note from the bride: “We went to the winery and asked for about 100 corks. Most wineries are more than happy to provide the corks for free because it’s FREE advertising for them!”
