Nothing makes us giddier than pulling a pretty wedding invitation from the mailbox. Whether the stationery is fancy and formal or spunky and sweet, we love getting a taste of a couple’s personality from their invites. This is one of the reasons why we’re head over heels for Val Marie Paper—Valerie Woerner’s work is simply stunning! We, along with many brides and grooms, love her variety of modern styles presented in 20 wedding suites, each consisting of coordinating invitation and reception pieces to ensure that your entire wedding has a beautiful, cohesive theme.
Valerie’s love for typography shines through her work, and we love the way she uses this design element to bring her stationery to life. (Just wait until you see her Odette collection. We can’t stop staring!) As a former wedding planner, Valerie understands how hard it is to find affordable and beautiful invitations and has made it her personal mission to make sure every couple can find the stationery of their dreams. To see all the loveliness Val Marie Paper has to offer, pop on over to her website and browse her wedding collections!

Ashley and Erik’s low-key but gorgeous wedding at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California, in the Bay Area, has some fab details we’re loving! To name a few: updated traditional stationery from Papyrus and Paper Source, exquisite pastel bouquets that pop against dusty blue bridesmaids dresses, and a sweet dessert with sugar flowers from Studio Cake atop—are you ready for this?—a gold sequin tablecloth from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental. We die! Ashley’s Victoria Nicole gown is a classic silhouette with just enough bling, and mod blush-colored Miu Miu shoes are the perfect complement. These stylish images from Meg Perotti showcase a great party, courtesy of the Ashley’s Italian family living it up with Erik’s Midwest relatives—see all of the beautiful images in the gallery!

Navy is a versatile color: dress it up, glam it up, make it modern, or as seen here, go casual by pairing navy with light aqua and vivid coral. A heavy dose of snowy white makes the palette seasonless and perfectly fresh!
