{recent project} napa wedding paper goods

congrats to ben and darcy! this couple just got married up in napa yesterday... so in honor of their wedding i thought i'd show you what we worked with them on.

first i'll show you a little behind the scenes work on these programs -
here's 175 x both sides of the programs, so what you're really looking at is 350 pieces i gocco'd
prior to turning them into programs!

and here's the finished product!
it was an outdoor wedding so i worked with darcy to design these fan programs,
which were meant to help guests keep cool in the late afternoon sun.
{they also make great sun visors too}

front side:
ceremony details and cranberry colored scroll design

back side:
wedding party and a special note from darcy & ben
w/ the scroll detail once again

we also tied the scroll detail through to their guests' place cards
-which were printed on opal stardream cards for an added shimmer

if you're interested in personalizing your wedding day paper goods or other items - i would love to hear from you! this is just a sample of the ways i can help design your event and accessories which can be customized so that your wedding day style flows seamlessly throughout the entire event!

feel free to contact me via emai: JDVJewelry{at}
of convo me through my etsy shop!

{month in review} july highlights

man, this summer is really sailing by! and it's been a few weeks since my last post, hopefully all that i have to show you will make up for my lack of posts... it's been a crazy past month of custom orders and other fun new items - so without further ado, here's what i've been up to....

citrus bridal shower invites:
*sorry for the privacy blurs*

the invite was gocco'd in metallic gold - lime - and yellow
and the envelope had the hostess' return address gocco'd in gold on the flap
w/ a slice of lime on the front side of the envelope

i just adore the cute and playful font we used to highlight the bride's name!

if you check out the bottom right corner that font was used to subtly highlight
the request for recipes for "katie's cook book"

i also gocco'd coordinating thank you notes that the hostess plans to give the bride at the shower - making thank you note writing that much easier and cuter! =)

if you happen to like these citrus summery thank you notes - they're be available in my shop

we're back....

from charleston

we got back just in time to enjoy the holiday weekend! here's one of my favorite photos of Charleston, SC...
it's a view of Tradd Street, which has some of the oldest homes in the city, most are Charleston single home style...
meaning they're 1 room deep. this street was used during the filming of the movie the Patriot {which i need to watch again}
it was such a great trip and a fabulous place to visit - we really enjoyed our time there and are so glad we went!
