tangerine + teal {style shoot}

I was thrilled to be asked by the fabulous planner, Melissa Nemitz at Tiny Bubbles Wedding and Event Design, to be a part of this style shoot and design and print the paperware. At Fleur de Lis we enjoyed coming up with something modern with a chevron design for the invitations, save the date, escort card flags, and ordering the cute bubble gum favors. As I always say, invitations set the tone for a wedding day (and any occasion!), so it was fun to see the whole package come together for this shoot. I love the color combination of tangerine and teal because it is modern, colorful, and different. What a FANTASTIC group of vendors, and what a beautiful shoot at this beautiful Boulder, Colorado location!
For your chevron lovers, we have this collection at our etsy store – the save the date, and the invite.
From the planner:
This wedding styled shoot was photographed in the beautiful surroundings of the flatirons of Boulder, Colorado, at Historic Chautauqua Park. The combination of the mountains, foliage, and historic cottages made for the perfect backdrop for an outdoor shoot. The shoot was inspired by tangerine, the new “it” color of 2012, with accents of teal, and a bit of whimsy with a white vintage gumball machine, striped paper straws, and rock candy. Add a gorgeous bride with an elegant Pronovias dress, and we ended up with some incredible shots!

engagement video session

We are so excited to share this engagement DVD from up-and-coming Colorado wedding photographer Meredith Moran Photography! Meredith is a wonderful, creative, talented, and sweet person and professional. We’ve certainly never seen a video like this before, and we hope this brings new inspiration for you in sharing your engagement with others :-)

This video is of an adorable engaged couple Mary Beth + Joe. Enjoy!

From the photographer: While I love capturing a story through photos, I wanted to offer couples a unique way to tell their story.  Incorporating places & things they like to do together in a video form allows us to see the little details that you might not get with a photo – how they engage with each other & the surroundings of their favorite spots, the playful joking around, the flirting in action … the stuff that makes you say ‘aww!’

Here are a few ideas for how couples can use their engagement DVD:
{1} a cute save-the-date for guests to watch
{2} an added feature to the wedding website
{3} a background video at an engagement party
{4} an adorable movie feature at a rehearsal dinner
{5} of course, something special for the couple to keep forever

Meredith offers an ‘a la carte’ where couples can get a photo or video engagement session, or both! Pricing for a photo/video package is $400 for up to 5 hours in the Denver area {additional charges for a location outside of Denver}

Meredith can do video sessions for:
{1} engagement sessions
{2} wedding dress shopping
{3}  bridal/couples/baby shower
{4} photojournalistic capture of wedding day
{5} memorable family footage
… you name it!

Visit her website for more information, details and packages.

you are cordially invited

Save-the-dates are one of the most important details for a wedding. They are in fact the precursor to the formal invitation. Other than your personalities and reputation for throwing fabulous parties, the save-the-date is the one thing that gets people hyped up for the main event. Yes, you can talk all you want about how delicious the food will be and how grand the centerpieces will look. However, first impressions speak volumes. {Especially when fine stationery is involved :-) }

A few Tre Sorelle recommendations when choosing your save-the-date:

Put your personality into it!

Keep it with the same tone as your wedding {if you’re having a traditional wedding, keep the save-the-date traditional}.

 The most important things are: the names of the bride and groom, the date and the location. Don’t forget to include “formal invitation to follow” at the bottom. Also,  accommodation information is always appreciated if people are traveling to your event.

I had the pleasure to take photos of some modern, fun and traditional save-the-dates at Fleur de Lis {where else?}, including announcements from William Arthur, Elum, Crane & Gwenyth Paige and my very own save-the-date from Designer’s Fine Press. Enjoy!
