best of the bay - bride nine/mocha bride | wedding invitation competition

***News Flash***

We WON! According to Bay Bella Publishing - we are the 'Best of Napa' Invitation Designer! Look out designers from the other 8 counties in the Bay Area, we're coming to win at Best of the Bay on November 18th!


We were so excited to get the call from Bay Bella Publishing (the publishers of Mocha Bride and Bride Nine magazines) and they asked us to compete in their Best of the Bay competition. So on October 18th we packed up the car with samples of our newest design (created just for the contest based on some our favorite elements from several weddings this season) and headed to the Gaia Resort in Napa to show off our stuff!

After arriving we set up our display table, presented to judges and told them that we should win! Our display included:

  • an invitation suite (including rsvp, hotel information and a map + directions insert)
  • a save the date with envelope
  • program
  • custom stamped petal tossing bag
  • wish ticket guest book
  • hotel welcome guide
  • menu with place card mini chalkboard
  • jam jar favor with ribbon and tag
  • candy bar bag with custom sticker
  • photo thank you card

Don't you LOVE this shot of the couple (I just love the light and the country road behind them!) Hats off to Jennifer Brotchie Photography (check out the real couple behind the faux design we used for the contest)

We thought that instead of just showing the pieces on a display board, we'd show off our wares in action, so on the backside of the table we created a little vignette showing the elements as they would be used at a wedding.

Cross your fingers! We'll let you know if we win...
