Little Wedding Recap!

It has now been almost three weeks since our amazing wedding on November 6th. We could not have asked for a better day. Our friends and family all celebrated with us as we made the first step to being husband and wife. It ended up one big party with lots of crazy dancing and lots of laughs. I only have some non-pro's right now but my bridesmaid Alex did an amazing job on them! Here are some of the shots of the wedding! Once I get the pro pictures I will do a rundown of all the paper products with images!

Our Invites + Temporary Closure

So we are closely approaching our November 6th Wedding date so things have been pretty crazy for us! I wanted to share our invitations for your enjoyment! These were a labor of love and there are still things I would change about them (I'm a perfectionist!). Our guests were enamoured with them and was amazed at how amazing the Envelopments paper was. One guest didn't even believe the envelopes were paper.

The invite layer was letterpressed by Caron & Catham and it came out great. I printed the other layers and return addresses.

Our calligrapher was Lauren from Trial by Cupcakes on Etsy. She did an absolutely breathtaking job:
So far we have received almost all of RSVPs..... and only 3 no's total...... thank god we budgeted for everyone!!
Less than one month out. The shop is offically closed, I have one order going out this week but after this I will not be doing any Stella Bella work until after January 16th. Stella Bella will be back in full force, with a new look thanks to Love-Inspired. We will be offering a lot more and opening the Etsy store back up for non-custom items! Can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us!

Hi All,

I live in San Bruno, less than half a mile from the horrible gas explosion that has destroyed 53 homes and damaged 120. Families have lost everything they have in this fire and the Red Cross needs help from everyone by donating clothing, shoes, blankets, food and blood. Please take the time to donate anything that you can. This is a working class community and some residents have lived in their houses for over 30 years. Please take your time to help!

Renee's Invitations

Renee's invitations were printed on ivory metallic paper and backed by a watermelon fuschia layer. Her envelopes were a cantelope color that matched the font coloring.

Rehearsal Dinner Invites

These rehearsal dinner invites were created with Envelopment's bloom graphic and multiple fonts.
Sorry for the bad quality. I am back to using my iPhone because I lost my camera while at my friend's bachelorette party.

Brian and Sarah's Invitations

Crystal's Programs and Escort Cards

Her escort cards where envelopes with boarding passes which said which table they were seating at. This is a great way of doing your escort cards before your table assignments because it is easy to move the table cards around if need be.

Her program is three page double sided program. She had lots of info and wanted to include it all. It is finished with a knot bow to hold all the pieces together.

Uncle Joey's Birthday Invite

I was lucky enough to be asked by my Great Aunt to design and make my Great Uncle Joey's Birthday invites. He is turning the big 7-0 and she had a specific design in mind.

Crystal's Wedding Invitations

These invitations came out better than I ever expected. She came to me with the exact idea of waht she wanted. I made a bunch of different samples for her. She constructed what she wanted out of the samples and we made these. Each insert is backed with metallic cardstock and each pocketfold is stamped.
I will also be doing her escort cards and programs... will be posting pictures once we finish those up at the end of the month.

I made this design for her to match her boarding pass save the dates that I made last year for her. I will also be making her itinerary pages and name tags for the guests. I am so jealous she is getting married in Venice, it will be beautiful!

Erin- Jail Themed Reception Pieces

Erin had a vision in her head of what she wanted for her reception pieces. Her wedding reception was being held in a former Jail. We made a tasteful theme that went through all of the reception pieces. Smoke cardstock and White cardstock was used throughout.

Sorry for the poor picture quality. I had to take them without a flash and it was night time so really poor lighting!!

Back Blogging!

So as you probably have noticed I have been MIA for a while! This is for good reason, TOO BUSY!! My business has picked up considerably from last year at this time which has resulted in less blogging.

I have some great projects that I am working on: Invitations, reception pieces, custom maps and more. I am going to do my best to take pictures and post the final projects!

Thanks for following and I promise there will be more posting in the future!!

Andrea Custom Map

Andrea requested a custom map that she needed for her invitations that are being designed elsewhere. We had to do a zoom feature since the locations were close together but far from the interstates on the zoomed out map.

Escort Cards- Crystal

These escort cards will direct the guests to their table. She wanted them to look like boarding passes. We are still in the designing phase but I needed to send her a sample of what it looks like. I so far have done three different flourish designs for her:
Here is the outside of the envelope, it will be personalized with the guest names:
