We’ve lost count of the times we’ve participated in the Bridal Premiere bridal show at the Westlake Hyatt, but that doesn’t mean it’s lost its appeal. This year once again did not disappoint as we met bride after bride (and grooms and besties) who were enthused and impressed with our creations!

As you can probably see, we’ve decided to spotlight our adorable banners. We’ve always enjoyed making them as part of the extra touches that lend a uniquely personal touch to your ceremony or reception, but we realize these little babies have been in the background for too long!

Banners are a small detail that give big bang for the buck. And who doesn’t want that? After all, shouldn’t your special day embody your one-of-a-kind love?!

Want to add that little detail that packs a big punch? Contact us and we’ll create a banner for any special occasion — Valentine’s Day, bridal shower, bachelorette party, baby shower, birthday — you name it!

Kimberly Brown 1

Kimberly and Nathan met in college, and after graduation their friendship eventually blossomed into romance. Their wedding took place at Christ Our Hope Catholic Church in downtown Seattle and the reception was held at Ballard Bay Club, a waterfront venue with breathtaking views of the Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains and Magnolia’s Discovery Park Lighthouse. This gorgeous Seattle wedding couldn’t have been more perfect! The weather, the couple, the Pomegranate Paper Co. designs — all beautifully woven together for one unforgettable day!

Kimberly’s classic style was evident from the beginning, starting with the simply elegant invitations and carrying through the wedding to the reception, without a single detail overlooked.

We can’t believe this is our fifth year of participating in the Bridal Premiere bridal show held at the Hyatt Westlake Plaza in Thousand Oaks!!! We always enjoy our time at the show and love meeting so many new people, and even seeing some past clients coming through with friends that are getting ready to tie the knot.

Stop by and see us!!!

First of all, we’d like to start by saying how incredibly blessed we have been this last year, thanks in large part to the terrific couples we have been privileged to work with. One of the aspects of our job that we love the most is the personal relationships we build with our clients. The final design is a collaboration between us and the bride and groom. It truly is gratifying for us all to view the end product and know that we hammered out our vision to create a one-of-a-kind suite of paper goods for the special day.

One of the couples that we just connected with immediately is Shelly and Tom. From our first meeting we were on the same page, and the only difficulty was focusing in on one design direction since we all agreed on so many perfect options! A special thanks to Kimberlee Miller Photography for the gorgeous photography capturing our designs as well as the magic of Shelly and Tom’s wedding day.

Shelly Invite

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shelly is very crafty and had considered making her invitations herself, but she just didn’t want that pressure. We are so glad she made that decision because we loved working with her.

Shelly Suite

Shelly and Tom had decided to get married at Graf Barn, a venue we had heard so much about. We couldn’t wait to add our special touches to the many wonderful items they had procured to complement the idyllic location, awash with rustic charm, vintage furnishings, and lush green lawns and foliage.

At the finishing meetings with Tom and Shelly, we were incredulous when they invited us to witness their vows and experience their wedding day – we were so touched that they would include us! The wedding was so intimate and beautifully done. From the time we arrived we felt as if we had walked into a hidden treasure. We loved the ceremony, and the interlude between ceremony and reception was filled with culinary deliciousness.  THE CHEESE! The charming barn reception was delightful, glowing with love and twinkling chandeliers, and we loved the opportunity to meet some of their friends that had shared their lives with them. It was, simply put, an enchanting evening. We walked away from this experience feeling as if we made new friends. Don’t we have the best job?

We couldn’t think of a couple more deserving of such a special night, and we wish them a loving happily ever after!

I’m dreaming of a…  sunny summer wedding, surrounded by verdant green hills and vineyards, clear blue skies, and good friends and family? Yes, even though it is Christmastime, you may have just gotten engaged — we are smack in the middle of engagement season! — and now it’s time to look forward to the “whats” and “wheres” of your wedding. Well, do we have a treat for you today!

Dana and Chase were married at the picturesque Lafond Winery in Buellton, California, on a sunny summer day in June. Everything from the backdrop of hills and vineyards to the gorgeous wedding party and the complementary color scheme came together for some spectacular wedding-day photos!

Her invitations were the perfect mix of California casual with a touch of playfulness that set the tone for the fabulous wine country wedding day!

The reply post card included a section for the guests to express their enthusiasm and send their best wishes along with their rsvp. It made for even more excitement when receiving the guests’ responses!

So if you’ve noticed, we’ve been MIA for a while. A lot has happened, but one of the more exciting events has been the launch of our new website! We love, love, love it! And we have to immediately give credit to our web design company, Crosshatch Creative, for capturing our vision and bringing it to fruition. They nailed it in every way, and we are beyond happy with the results.

So, now that we have a fresh new look, we need to start posting again. And we have the perfect motivation and inspiration. Richard and Sheena were such a delight to work with, and look what we just received from Sheena in our in-box!

Can you believe how stunning she looks?! And how handsome and happy Richard looks?! And can you believe how thoughtful she is?! We are so impressed with her presence of mind on her wedding day to make sure she got photos of all the paper goods we created.  She’s a doll! ♥ Here’s more:

We also love how she had her bridesmaids and friends help display some of the items we made. It looks like it was such a wonderful time of family and friends together celebrating such a joyous occasion. We are so happy for them both and wish them all the happiness and joy that life has to offer!

Is it okay to say we sometimes even surprise ourselves with how beautiful our wedding suites turn out? It’s so fun to collaborate with our brides to bring their vision to reality. And so we did, combining her love for vintage hears and arrow elements with her desire for a soft, romantic feel.
See for yourself — nailed it, didn’t we?

Have a bride in your life? Send them over — we’d love to make their wedding paper dreams come true!

Derek and Christina were so fun to work with! We had such a great experience with them getting to know them as we worked through each stage of designing their invitation and day-of details. Their wedding day was magical and we are so happy to have been a part of it!

Unless you live in California, you may be needing a little spring inspiration. Jillian came to us knowing she wanted her invitations to match the romance of her outdoor venue. Her vision was contagious and came to fruition in this lovely garden invitation.
