Mariska Hartigay’s Walk of Fame Star Party Invitation

Mariska has given us permission to blog about a special invitation we did for her back in November, so here we go (Actually she gave us permission a long time ago, but we’ve taken a looong time to get around to blogging).

On November 8, 2013, Mariska Hartigay, star of Law & Order: SVU, received her star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, right next to her late mother, Jane Mansfield.

Mariska, a long-time client of Tiny Pine Press who we know through our work with the Joyful Heart Foundation, asked us to create an invitation for the after-party. We came up with a design that is, like Mariska, just a little girly and definitely a show-stopper. The design obviously evokes the Walk of Fame stars… Because Mariska loves rhinestones we also made sure to include one of those, too. Plus some pink edge painting and a lovely pink-lined envelope.

The party invitation featured multiple letterpress runs, pink edge painting and a rhinestone.

Organic Wedding Invitation Suite in Style Me Pretty

Hi all. Sometimes no one tells us when our work is featured; we have to figure it out because there’s a bump in new inquiries and whatnot. Which is what happened with Chase and Justin’s wedding, which was featured on Style Me Pretty July 17. The wedding was shot by the indomitable Jose Villa. Special thanks to La Artista, Laura Mendoza, who did the lovely hand calligraphy!

Molly, We Think You’re Amazing, Too!

Been a little while since we last blogged…blame it on wedding season CHAOS!!

Anyway, our good friend and client Molly Sims has given us some love on her blog, MollySims.com and on LA Racked! Lots of good press for us (no pun intended). Molly is at the studio often and we’ve gotten to know and love her and her laid-back, down-to-earth style.

We’ve worked with Molly on several projects. For the blog post, she choose to feature this adorable birth announcement we did for her son Brooks.

Thank you, Molly!!

Style Me Pretty Features the Tiny Pine Press Wedding

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage. And then comes a feature on Style Me Pretty!

The full wedding invitation set.

We are honored to have photos from our wedding, taken by the unsurpassable Gia Canali, featured on Style Me Pretty today. The Style Me Pretty feature has photos of our custom save the dates, wedding invitations, day of paper and the wedding itself. And anything they don’t show we promise to put up here in the next couple weeks…

It’s been over a year since the wedding and since then we’ve moved and had a baby. Oh, we were so young…or maybe it’s just life before baby Otis… Anyway, taking a fresh look at our wedding invitation, menus, signs and everything else we created for the big day, we are pretty darn proud, if we do say so ourselves.

Tiny Pine Menus in Martha Stewart Weddings

Hello all! Tiny Pine Press has finagled itself into the wedding press again. This time it’s Martha Stewart Weddings’ Fall Issue (on newsstands now!!). We actually don’t have the magazine yet (we’re hoping Gia Canali’s subscription hasn’t lapsed) but it’s also up on their website.

Wedding menu

The Tine Pine work shown are menus we did for Shoshana Wolf and Jeremy Bohrer back in 2011. You can see their wedding invitations on our website. The menus were in a similar style but with the added bonus of simply exquisite fine-line calligraphy by Ann Robin. Photo from Martha Stewart Weddings is above, click on it to be taken to their website.

Our Wedding in C Magazine!

Tiny Pine is always honored when our work gets in showcased in wedding blogs and magazines. But when it’s our wedding that’s getting the press, it’s a really big deal!

This month, C Magazine‘s design section featured a full-page photo by Gia Canali photography of the tables from our wedding last October. We were thrilled to see it in the magazine and thrilled that they mentioned our friends at Clementine Floral Works, who did the flowers.

The wedding was at Carondelet House, an up-and-coming wedding location in Los Angeles that we think is going to join Smog Shoppe and Marvimon as the Big Three wedding locations in central LA (if it hasn’t already). Carondelet has a beautiful old-fashioned but not stodgy vibe — we strongly recommend it!

So it’s not a photo of our invitations (which we promise we will post up here soon) but it is a photo from a wonderful night and such a perfect example of all the help we got from our friends.

Under the Pepper Tree…

It was almost 3 years ago when we worked on this sweet backyard wedding… It’s so timeless!

Back when designing the wedding papers for Julia and Eli,  I met them at the Bride’s mothers home where they showed me the Pepper Tree where they would be married. It was decided that I should illustrate it for their wedding invitations…. So that’s just what I did.

The pepper tree printed blind on museum board, with green type and then mounted to cedar veneer… I love using cedar for weddings – it keeps the critters away from a marriage, I like to think. and it smells so nice too! not to mention the warm coloration.

And just for fun, the save the date as well.

Thanks to Gia Canali for the photos and there are tons of wedding photos featured on Style me Pretty


magical monochromatics

Last year we worked on Britt and Peter’s wedding invitations with Nicole Sillapere and Rosemary Events. All the paper goods for this wedding were tactile and warm even though the color palette was shades of white and grey.

The layers of this invitation were intricate – the was hand calligraphy for print, laser cutting, letterpress, mounting, hand tearing, ribbon binding, foil stamping and die cutting. It was tedious but worth it. And the vintage stamps came together so well, though we had to use some newer stamps because of the size and weight of the handmade heavyweight envelopes.

The wedding programs were also pretty special… small booklets printed on textured translucent paper with white cotton organdy covers with a simple stitch bind. these are my very favorite programs!

The escort cards echoed the invitations – handtorn with laser cut slits for the ribbon.

When everything came together what we created as a giant collaborations was truly magical!

Thanks to Abby Ross Photography for the amazing photos on this one. Check out everything on Style Me Pretty!
