A Fairy Tale Wedding

That’s all I could think when I saw these gorgeous photos from Jenny and Gray’s San Clemente Wedding at Casa Romantica… these photos are like something from a fairy tale. Desi Baytan Photography did an amazing job capturing the romance and beauty of the event and I found myself melting into my chair, eyes glazing over with a dreamy, faraway expression on my face.

Everything about this wedding was simply stunning, from the bride  & groom to the color choices and the flowers (OMG! Aren’t they gorgeous!?!?) to all of the vintage stylings and the romantic, rustic scenery… le sigh. Nothing about the design was overdone or underdone – it was soft, simple, elegant… just perfect.

Sometimes, in the middle of the week, you just need a boost of wedding eye candy goodness to get you through the day, and I think this one did it for me for the whole month! I hope it makes your day a little sweeter, too!

Colorful Cardstock Combinations for Invites

Summer is winding down slowly now and we’re moving toward autumn, but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye yet!! I love the vibrant colors that summer always infuses into everything, and I’m still coveting some truly gorgeous summery color schemes from our paper good vendor, Envelopments. If you haven’t seen their website, you should check it out. Not only are their products beautiful, high quality, and simply fabulous, their samples and examples are a wonderful source of inspiration and eye candy!

(And of course if you see anything there that you would love to use for your wedding invitations – or birthday party, wedding shower, or other event! – be sure to let us know. We will create something spectacular that you will just LOVE!)

Look at this gorgeous color combination: Pout Pink, Guava, Crème Brulée and Ecru. It says this wedding is going to be happy, lighthearted, open, and fun! I picture a ceremony in some vast green garden overflowing with orange poppies, pink bougainvillea, and fruit trees!

And don’t you just love this color combo!? Bronze, French Roast, and Peacock. These invites are classy, simple, and elegant, yet they say “we know how to have fun, too!” They foreshadow a ceremony in a beautiful cathedral with stained glass windows, followed by a reception bursting with calla lilies, champagne, and a rich, many-tiered chocolate cake with ganache center. Yum!

And last but not least, I’ve been relishing this yummy nature-inspired color combination: Envy Green, Black Linen, Diamond, and Pyrite. These wedding invitations are romantic, sweet, and whimsical. I can just see a late-summer wedding on a venerable family estate lined with oak trees and decorated with bunches of fresh green grapes and bouquets of white peonies!
