Brittany & Corey- Napa Winery Save-The-Dates

22 Oct

Brittany & Corey are a young couple from the Seattle area.  They are having a destination wedding at Jacuzzi Vineyards in Napa, California and I’ll be doing all of their stationery pieces for the wedding.  Their wedding will be over the top!  It sounds absolutely fabulous, with every single detail planned and coordinated throughout the whole event from gift bags for guests to hang-over-kits for the day after, not to mention, they will have fabulous invitations too!  :)  Of course, the fabulous Daniela at Bella Signature Design is their coordinator, florist, planner, designer…and more.

Their colors are a deep, rich, eggplant purple and a mossy green- with some accents of fuchsia.

So far we’ve completed the Save-the-dates…and of course I’m REALLY looking forward to designing the invitation suite soon too!  Sounds like we’ll be using real moss in the invites which I love love love!!!  I adore mixing natural materials and textures in with my designs.

For Brittany & Corey’s wedding I created a custom print that will be used throughout the event (on everything, but in slightly different variations so that it all goes together without being matchy-matchy).  Tough to explain, but you can see great examples of this same idea by visiting Tara Guerard’s website and viewing some of her galleries at the bottom.  She has beautiful work!

Custom Motif & Pattern- reminiscent of a trellis

The Save-the-dates were to be luxurious, elegant, classy, and evoke a feeling of the winery without any of the cliche’ winery designs.  No grapes, no barrels, no vines.

I was worried about their colors at first, I’ll admit.  It’s tough to use green & purple, AND fuchsia in an elegant way.  I printed their custom pattern on both sides of the envelopes, designed custom coordinating address labels for them to hand-address to their recipients, and created a three layer piece using coordinating dark purple and mossy green papers.  I looove the end result!
