Behind the Scenes: Paper

We all love pretty paper, and today we would love to share some of the stories and inspiration behind the designs. As you will see, inspiration can come from anywhere: from the venue to a wallpaper swatch, or even a favorite piece of clothing. It is through these special details we are able to incorporate a cohesive design in our clients’ paper suite, merchandise, textiles and more!


Britt and Matt got married in Pebble Beach and wanted their paper suite to exude the easy going California style. Caroline started with Britt’s favorite color, blue, and added an organic script and an image of the iconic Lone Cypress tree in Pebble Beach.


The fonts, colors, and tree image were carried through the entire paper design and into the reception planning. One of our favorite details was the escort cards. Calligrapher Anna Sayers wrote guest names on blue pockets that held the table assignment. White flowers complemented the design and made a show stopping statement.

Rosalind and Peter were married at Camp Waldemar in the Texas Hill Country this past April. The inspiration for their wedding paper stemmed from Rosalind’s favorite outfit and love of yellow! Mary created the rose pattern for the save the date, which was later made into fabric for bridesmaids robes and custom furniture at the reception.


Another must for this fashion-forward bride was the Allison Banks monogram that was seen on the wedding invitation and was used throughout the weekend on everything from napkins, to a corn hole board at the welcome party, to the tablecloth at the ceremony.

Mary Margaret and Brandt got married at her family’s horse farm in March of 2019. Mary Margaret has been riding horses her entire life, so naturally she wanted to include a drawing by Rachel Knowlton of the barn. To pull in the natural element, Mary found a wood “paper” that we used to foil stamp the save the date.


For the wedding invitation, Mary used the same fonts from the save the date and incorporated Mary Margaret’s favorite color into the letterpress.
