We may be known for more organic, wabi-sabi sorts of wedding invitations, but once and a while we get to create custom invitations that are very different from our “signature style” (whatever that is…but anyway).
At the other end of the spectrum from natural tones and materials is bright, shiny invitations like the ones here, which we did for a few different clients. These invitations are bold and glittery and they tell the recipient this wedding is going to be all-out fancy. Which they were… In fact, the one in red was for a Jewish-Hindu double wedding lasting five days! Two sets of wedding invitations, two sets of day of paper (programs, escort cards, menus, etc.) in two different but matching styles: red with laser cut monogram and gold foil for the Hindu wedding, and white with gold foil for the Jewish wedding. Both invitations also have gold twine tie. We are really proud of these wedding invitations, they were a lot of work but came out great.
We put together this gold foiled wedding invitation for a client (and now good friend). There are multiple pieces here, including a gold foil map and itinerary booklet with gold twine tie. Not for everyone, perhaps, but for her it was perfect.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
