Real Wedding: Nicole and Colin

invitation We had a fabulous time working with Nicole and Colin on the stationery for their Bay Area wedding this past summer.   Nicole is passionate about letterpress, a design fanatic and has to be one of the most detail oriented, organized and thoughtful brides we have ever had the pleasure of  working with.   As you will see from these photos courtesy of Alisha & Brook Photographers, the results of her thoughtful planning are stunning!

Nicole writes:

 We were married in June at the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove, one of the gems of the Sacramento Delta.  We wanted to create a lush, magical atmosphere for the event with a profusion of hot pink peonies, while also keeping it fresh and modern with shades of purple and fuchsia.  My primary sources of inspiration were our gorgeous Hello!Lucky invitation suite, the ethereal Anthropologie bridesmaid dresses by Saja, and my own Kenneth Pool gown.

The floral design from the invitations was carried through to other details like table cards, reserved seating signage and letterpress programs. Can we hire him?

Floral arrangements came from Flowers by Anne  and  Got Light? provided the lighting in the ballroom including projecting a pattern from the stationery on to the dance floor.
