We absolutely love it when we get to work with clients who think outside the box and aren’t afraid to veer away from tradition and get creative with their weddings. This was absolutely the case with Jeska and Brad, who had one of the most unique celebrations we’ve seen in a long time.
Jeska and Brad chose our Big Day suite in letterpress. We loved the pop of purple in their invites, which was definitely a running theme throughout the wedding — from the brides hair, to the flowers, to the purple layer at the bottom of her gorgeous custom made dress.
A good reminder for everyone’s big day!
These robot cake toppers are pretty amazing, we’re especially loving the paper flags with their initials.
Jeska and Brad printed out our free Big Day table numbers and mounted them on purple paper of course. How pretty are those flowers?
Genius seating chart which let’s people know where they are sitting and also explains who everyone is.
Congratulations Jeska & Brad! Thanks for being such a fun couple to work with!
Today we’re bringing you a wedding inspiration board for one of our most popular and dare we say favorite wedding invitations, Nouveau Peonies. If you’re planning a celebration around this invitation you can go all out feminine or emphasis the 1920′s vibe this design showcases. Pretty pink petal cupcakes above from All Things Cupcake.
If you love your wedding suite and really want to bring the design to the table there’s no reason not to print up menus, they’ll add to the place settings and reinforce your theme of the day. Big paper poofs in whatever color you chose for your invite are always a lovely addition to the decor. And how’s this for a classic wedding getaway car?
There are so many different directions you can go for a wedding dress to match the charm and sophistication of Nouveau Peonies. Go all out 1920′s with this flapper wedding dress or chose a more soft and subtle style like this pretty cream colored gown.
To see more curated inspiration for our Nouveau Peonies wedding suite check out our Pinterest board. Is there a wedding suite you’ve got your eye on that you’d like us to create a mood board for? Tell us in the comments and we’ll get to work on it for you!
This real wedding featured on Wedding Chicks is just gorgeous. We adore the vintage vibe that this bride and her team pulled off and nature never fails to be the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony. We’re big fans of Rifle Paper Co. so we loved seeing the save the date postcard we designed for Brianne and Brandon paired with their lovely wedding invitations.
The couple carried the invitation design to the drink table with this table cloth from Rifle. They did a great job of setting up an easy do-it-yourself drink table as well.
How stunning is this ombre cake made by Crisp Bake Shop in Sonoma?
Dawn Ranch is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding, and with just a few simple touches the space can really be transformed. We love the look of these streamers in the apple trees.
The flowers were done by Spiral Hand, just adding small vintage jars to the table with some colorful pops of flowers is all you really need for an outdoor wedding where nature takes center stage.
To see more of this wedding head over to Wedding Chicks. Congratulations Brianne and Brandon! Here’s to many years of happiness!
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a classic New York City wedding come our way. Tina and Gregory touched on all our favorite Big Apple details, from an incredible rooftop view to a traditional black and white color palette. It’s beautiful in its simplicity and we’re delighted to have played a part.
Our New York City Skyline invitation was the perfect choice for the couple. The charcoal gray and white set the tone for the event.
We can’t get over the intricacy of this cake/cupcake tower combo by Billy’s Bakery. You can’t go wrong with edible pearls!
Another wedding for the books. Congratulations to Tina and Gregory!

This fall we had the pleasure of working with a team at the Top of the Mark at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel for a special photo shoot. As such an iconic hotel with deep San Francisco history, we were thrilled to create a custom skyline invitation for the event. Our San Francisco Skyline is packed with significant imagery, but one thing was missing for this Nob Hill destination. We created a new icon for the mix and included the Top of the Mark peaking above our lovely city by the bay.
If you haven’t been to the Top of the Mark, it’s a must for visitors and city dwellers. Their views are some of the best in the city, and the bar makes a delicious cocktail.
Can you see the difference? We love having the Mark Hopkins in our Skyline!
These photos by Rien van Rijthoven of Architecture Photography capture the magic of the Mark Hopkins so well. With elegant tablescapes and jaw-dropping views, this venue makes any event a dream.
Thanks to the Top of the Mark for such a fun project and to Rien van Rijthoven for the beautiful images!
As a boutique and very hands-on wedding vendor, we’re always happy to reach out to our brides and grooms around the globe. But when an event takes place right here in the heart of San Francisco, we feel proud to be a part. Darcy and Kevin’s glamorous San Francisco wedding covered a lot of ground, from the beautiful Presidio Chapel to the funky Bimbo’s 365 Club. The lively couple had a lot of fun with their decor, and they seem to have had a blast on their big day. It was all captured by the talented Andrew Weeks Photography with lovely details by Dream a Little Dream Events.
Of course with a reception venue like Bimbo’s, vintage glamour is a must. We created custom stationery of the San Francisco skyline for their paper programs and table numbers.
Michele Papineau‘s beautiful calligraphy led guests to their tables in style.
The sensational ombre pink wedding cake by Sage Catering was a focal point of the event. We love how it basically glows among the dark and romantic decor.
Congratulations Kevin and Darcy!

It’s getting colder and the days are getting shorter, meaning we’re gearing up for the winter months ahead. Snow is falling in many parts of the world creating a gorgeous white backdrop for our favorite winter weddings. There’s something very romantic about a winter ceremony, whether it’s the peacefulness of the seasons or that friends and family slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite Pins from Pinterest in a Winter Wedding Roundup. Getting engaged this season? Winter is a beautiful time to say “I do,” so take a peek at these images for inspiration for 2013.

One thing we never get tired of is a beautiful feminine wedding. Yes, we love modern details and quirky decor, but a traditional wedding with delicate touches just feels right. This real wedding of Rachel and Jared covers all bases. From the neutral tones and blush pink bouquets, to the Parisian influenced food and romantic decorations, it’s simply beautiful. Rachel and Jared share a love of french culture, and knew their big day would have to incorporate their favorite place (and honeymoon destination). The Villa San Juan Capistrano provided a perfect backdrop with rustic walls and dreamy greenery. And what can we say about that Lazaro wedding dress? Stunning.
We couldn’t imagine a more fitting invitation than our Nouveau Peonies suite. The couple even had a custom program made to match their invites.
Gorgeous florals and boutonnieres by Krista Jon.
This might just be our favorite detail of Rachel and Jared’s wedding. This textural ombre cake by Sweet and Saucy Shop and those pistachio green macarons look très délicieux.
Congratulations to Rachel and Jared! What a lovely wedding. To see more pictures head over to Ruffled for a full feature and image gallery!

Never thought you’d have a sweet tooth for art, would you? Modern pastry chefs are breaking ground with painterly wedding cakes. We can’t think of a better way to express yourself on your big day than with a work of art on your dessert table. It’s amazing what food coloring can accomplish these days, and with stunners like this rosy wonder (shown above, by Amelie’s House), it’s clear these chefs can do anything.
This dramatic ombre style by Charm City Cakes (found via Design Sponge) tops the charts. Duff and Co. certainly know how to have fun with their tasty treats, but this four-tiered beauty is – in all seriousness – beautiful.
It’s true we may favorite the soft florals and vintage style, but this graphic silhouette cake by My Sweet and Saucy would be perfect for a bold and whimsical wedding.
Of course the team at Martha Stewart Weddings has a spot on our list, impressing us again with this french silk ribbon cake. It is retro and modern, with a subtle ikat texture, and would dazzle the dessert table at any occasion. All of these cakes are found in our Wedding Cake board on Pinterest. Check it out here for more cake love!
