Ocean Side Garden Wedding Featured in BRIDES!

sarah-bane-and-kyle-nelson-wedding20171003_12.jpg

Over the summer we collaborated on a wedding with Erica from Twine Events. The direction for the invitations was classic, earthy, and romantic. We used handmade deckled paper from Spain and pressed with a soft dove gray ink. Everything was very angelic and serene! Sarah, the bride, really loved the look of a loose style calligraphy as well so we used a new font created by The Wells Makery from the artist's own calligraphy writing. It was the perfect touch to the clean and sweet design. We loved Sarah's nod to their love for gardening with the wedding favors we created. We pressed small muslin bags with tiny notes inside each bag printed on plant-able seed paper.

Liz and Mark's Elegant Pelican Hill Wedding

If you've ever dreamed of a California resort wedding, The Resort at Pelican Hill is the place. Set along the bluffs of Newport Coast are manicured lawns, ocean breezes, 16th century Palladian architecture, panoramic Pacific views, I mean, I could go on and on.  It's no wonder why Liz and Mark chose to exchange vows here. It's so magical! Their September ceremony was under the iconic Italian rotunda with dinner reception indoors. 

Their invitation design was clean and classic, with deep navy blues and golds with a fun accent of wine, literally. Their reply card had a printed wine stain on it, which matched the bridesmaids dress coloring. Here's a few photos of the suite we created for them!

Since we aren't a part of the rest of the planning process, we are always so curious to see how the couple, their planner, and the vendor team, bring everything together for the big day and how our wedding day pieces might have been tied into the overall design. We created gold foil menus, programs, place cards, and bar signs. All with custom calligraphy, to give it that extra special personalized touch!

Colorful Ojai Wedding

copperwillow.com | gold foil invitations | ojai valley inn & spa

Over the years, many of our couples have chosen to marry at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.  We can't blame them!  What a gorgeous setting...the grounds with the beautiful tree, the red barn, lavender, rolling hills.  The venue is the perfect canvas for any couple's style and this couple was no exception.  Rustic meets modern, tribal and rustic, with gold foil.  Pops of teal and hot pink; gold foil elegance meets playful color.  We were happy to be a part of their wedding, from invitations, to signage, foiled menus, and calligraphed escort cards.

Shout out to Park & Grove for event design and Rylee Hitchner for these lovely photos!

Dreamy San Ysidro Ranch Wedding

Location, location, location.  When you decide to get married in southern California, you really have the cream of the crop to choose from in terms of dazzling wedding locations.  It's pretty common to swoon over the wedding photos that stream into our mailbox from our happy couples!  But one location never ceases to give us all the heart eyes.  San Ysidro Ranch is so beautiful.  Add in some talented professionals, a sweet Vera Wang dress, and one darling couple who is lovely inside and out, and you have an incredibly dreamy wedding.  

Ashley & Bryant were sent to us by Twine Events with a watercolor crest by Happy Menocal already in hand.  The color and essence were already there, we just needed to fill out the vision.  We used metallic sand envelopes with espresso and lavender letterpress and carried those colors and styling through to the wedding day.  Clean and soft, a sweet compliment to the day.

Breathtaking Vineyard Wedding with wine-inspired papers

copperwillow.com | Hammersky Vineyards Wedding | Letterpress Vineyard Invitation

It was hard to resist posting every single image from this wedding!  The vines, the wooden tables, that huppah!  So much beauty.  The ceremony and reception was held at Hammersky Vineyards in Paso Robles, California.  The couple decided to embrace the gorgeous setting and use the oak tree and wine stain artwork on their invitation as well as their wedding menu. Embracing the natural colors of the area, we used a warm pewter gray and copper foil.  And of course a sweet hand drawn map of the Paso area.

The day was designed to perfection by Nancy of So Happi Together with florals from Adornments.  Lovely photography by Jana Williams.
