A Tree-Lined Wedding


Beaulieu Garden is known for it’s incredible grounds and elegant setting in Napa County. Their tree-lined entry is jaw-dropping and noteworthy (and also the perfect backdrop for wedding photos), so we wanted to highlight this feature in the invitation design. We created a romantic, yet traditional monogram for Kristin and John and printed that in dark gray upon a softer gray letterpress illustration of the trees. The bevelled edge painted in gray and the soft gray envelope liner helped bring the entire invitation suite together. JBD Events and Atelier Joya really brought this sweet and traditionally elegant garden wedding to life with some added tones of blush and soft, natural greens.

Red, White and Blue


What a beautiful 4th of July we had this year. The fog held off and summer was going strong here in the Bay Area with bbqs, parades, fireworks, picnics… And we just love the patriotic colors everywhere so we were inspired to look back at all of our red, white, and blue designs from years past…



Summer break is here and we’re ready to plan our next getaway! Belize, Hawaii, Europe, SoCal? Here are a few of the fun maps we’ve designed for invitations past…


Wedding Featured on Brides Magazine


We were honored to be featured last month on Brides.com for the gorgeously understated wedding of Lauren and Alexander. The couple’s wedding day was rustic yet romantic with a clean, neutral color palette that blended in perfectly with their wine country surroundings at Beaulieu Garden. Subtle pops of classic navy blue appeared throughout the invitation suite as well as in the wedding party with their matching navy dresses and blue suits and ties. And to help guide their east coast visitors, we designed a fun envelope liner map to show them the way North.

Santa Lucia Preserve


It’s hard to not swoon over any wedding held at the picturesque Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. But when you bring together the talented work of event planner Laurie Arons and florist Kathleen Deery, with the the gorgeous photography of Jose Villa, and add in an adorable couple dressed in black tie, it gets even better. We just love the elegant and romantic style of this wedding day and invitation suite.
