Caitlin & Sean - Los Alamos Wedding

This wedding suite was one of our all-time favorites, from the ultra-stylish couple to the 70s era design details, we fell in love with Caitlin & Sean's vintage-inspired wedding and their western saloon venue, The 1880 Union Hotel located in Los Alamos, California. Caitlin & Sean wanted a neon-sign themed wedding suite inspired by The Alamo Motel, where there wedding party would be staying to celebrate the festivities. It was a dreamy day filled with neutral florals and lovely pops of orange, amber, and green to accent the warm, historic property in California wine country. We also designed custom bar & dinner menus with matching place cards to compliment their wedding invitations and add a personalized touch to the reception.  For more information...

For our first feature, we decided to include some shots of one of our favorite digitally printed wedding invitations.

This method turned out perfect for Katie & Kevin's Sedona wedding.  One of our favorite details of their wedding suite were the geometric-shaped menus we designed for their reception. After their invitations were sent out, the bride shared that they decided to incorporate geometric details with their ceremony backdrop and reception tables. We modeled the menus from there, and each guest had a menu to...

Prickly Pear Vacation: PARIS

We just got back from our honeymoon in Paris! It was our first time visiting the "City of Light" and my first time in Europe. We decided to spend our entire week in Paris to take it all in and not feel rushed to get all the sights in before jetting off to the next country, which I highly recommend! The biggest takeaways from our trip were: wine, cheese, baguettes, croissants, macarons, gardens, architecture, history, culture, and espresso. You get the idea.  The thing we loved most about the city was the beauty of everyday French life. The streets are lined with cafes on every corner, all with equally delicious menus and happy hour can be found almost everywhere. When...
