Real Wedding: Cate & Tim

We had the pleasure of working with Thy from Evoke in the planning for Cate & Tim's big day.  We just loved thinking up the perfect paperie for all of the little details from the Menus to the cookie signs to their thank yous!  All photo credits go to Renee Sprink Photography. 

Easy Etiquette - Choosing An Envelope Addressing Method!

We, of course, love love love the look of beautiful hand-written calligraphy!  It's that extra special touch that make your invited guests just swoon.  At a cost of between $3.50 and $5.50 it is certainly not in everyone's budget, but it's a great little extra for those who must have it!  A pain-stacking art practiced by fewer and fewer in recent years, this is definitely the most formal and traditional way to address a wedding invitation suite.  Though Haute Papier does not have a calligrapher on staff, we work with a handful of the country's most respected calligraphers to ensure that your invitations are addressed perfectly!

If traditional calligraphy is not in your budget, please don't fret since it no longer means you'll be hunched over for hours addressing your own invitations in what your elementary school teachers insisted was chicken scratch! Oh no, now computer printed addressing is widely available for all types of envelopes.  Haute Papier offers this for our couture and wholesale items, and at a cost of between $1.50 and $2.50 it's a great deal!  Check out how beautifully it can match your invitation set!  Anything from a traditional script font to a funky block is sure to catch the eye of your guests!

Real Wedding: Liz & Andras

We just couldn't stop oooohing and ahhhing when we say the photos from Liz & Andras's beautiful wedding at The Hay Adams here in Washington, DC.  The photography was shot by one of our favorites - Holland Photo Arts.  And the coordinating and planning was done by Jamie at Simply Chic Events.  Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!

Black & White Beauty

We've been just bursting at the seams to share this one with you, but had to wait since it is featured in this month's Brides! It was so much fun to create this suite for Cate & Tim - they just asked for sophisticated, classic contemporary and then let us take it away!  The invites are engraved in white on the black paper for the front and the back is a reverse, with white paper and their monogram engraved in black.  We love the custom envelope liners that incorporate the starburst design from their monogram.  Stay tuned for pictures of the creative details put together for their reception by EVOKE!
