The Girl With One Pearl Earring has also been the inspiration for a Movie and a Book. The book is written by Tracy Chevalier, published in 1999 is a historical novel. It sold over 2 million copies globally. It’s about a servant’s life, a master’s obsession, a matter of honor set in Holland.

Girl with a pearl earring movie

Girl with a pearl earring movie

The film, “Girl With A Pearl Earring”, is directed by Peter Webber and stars Scarlett Johansson and Collin Firth. It was made in 2003 after the book came out in 1999. The film grossed over 31 million internationally and was made with 10 million.

Time in a Painting

Why do we want to look at paintings? Why is it important? Does it connect us to Time: an intangible dimension and makes it more tangible? An object can do that for us, make time appear to be more tangible so that we can see it or touch it. But to transform to 1665, which is when the oil masterpiece, “Girl With A Pearl Earring” was painted by Dutch Painter Johannes Vermeer you do have to go to de Young Museum in San Francisco where you  can witness first hand “time” in a painting.

For tickets and information on visiting de Young Museum please visit their Plan Your Visit Page. Enjoy witnessing time at all your local museums.

Vera Wang Fashion Show at Unveiled by Bridal Galleria

We were recently at the Vera Wang Fashion show which was presented by Bridal Galleria and Unveiled at the City View at Metreon. The show consisted of 14 Vera Wang gowns worn by the original Vera Wang models as shown at the New York City Fashion Show. Guests were entertained by Elan Artists while waiting for the show to begin. The models all had their hair parted and tied in two like little school girls wearing minimal makeup promoting all the attention to the main attraction, the gown. The colors in the collection consisted of Cardinal, Dahlia and Crimson. The ball gown styles showcased were strapless, mermaid, and one shoulder.

Elan Artists Perform at the Unveiled Event

The Vera Wang Stationery collection is understated and muted with vibrant colors and motifs. She has made a point of having a separate  book for party invitations, personal stationery and business stationery. So for those clients who prefer designer stationery with high quality from William Arthur, the Vera Wang stationery collection is a great option with great value.


Armenian Wedding Invitations

Our Armenian couple, Arpi & Bedross chose to print their wedding invitations in both their ethnic language of Armenian and in English. They chose a beautiful aubergine and cream combination design from Carlson Craft. To truly create a unique wedding invite, telling of their heritage, Arpi & Bedross enveloped their invitation with a cream band inscribed with their initials in traditional Armenian artwork design. The intertwined A & B of their initials is a symbolic expression of the lovely couple intertwining their lives with the promise of love and ancestral tradition.

Arpi & Bedross’ Armenian and English Wedding Invitations with Armenian Artwork and Lettering:


Armenian Wedding Invitations

The couple chose to have an illustrator from Sardarabad Book Store, located in Los Angeles to create their art-work for their initials seen here on the custom tab of the pocket invitation. Arpi & Bedross chose a pocket wedding invitation to stuff all their inserts, including their accommodations card, rsvp card with return envelope and reception card. The couple resides in the Bay Area, however, their nuptials will take place in Los Angeles where their extended families will join them in the celebration.

Accommodations Card Used for Armenian Wedding Invitation:


Accommodations Card

The Accommodations Card is a great way to direct your out of town guests to the venue of your choice where they may receive special discounts and also have an opportunity to see other family and guests who are attending the wedding. In addition to the accommodations card, the reception card will make it easy for guests to have all the necessary information already printed for them on an easy to read card. Finally, the rsvp card allows guests to respond to the invitation and also write any fun comments for the bride and groom.

Armenian Wedding Invitation

Below you can see the ancient Armenian fonts that were created thousands of years ago by Saint Mesrop Mashtots, an Armenian monk, theologian and linguist. This beautiful language is cherished by the elders of Armenian communities all over the globe and still taught to the younger members of the community. In the Bay Area, Armenian is taught in Friday and Saturday schools and in San Francisco, KZV (Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan Armenian School) serves as the only Armenian School. Arpi and Bedross, by including this ancient text as part of their Wedding Invitation, have chosen to honor their heritage and pay homage to their ancestral roots in this very touching tribute to their family history.


Armenian Wedding Invitations

Arpi & Bedross’ dual-language, Armenian wedding invitation is an example of a very personal design thought up by the couple. The first way the couple achieves this very personalized wedding invite, is by choosing to include their ancestral language as part of the invitation. Second, the couple working with an artist create a custom monogram by using Armenian Art. This highly personalized card is an example of why we enjoy the invitation business where we can assist couples in the design and production of their invitations. For more examples on dual-language invitations please see our Dual-Language Invitations Category on our blog. We congratulate Arpi & Bedross and wish them a lifetime of Happiness, Health & Success/Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy
