Melissa & Sevan’s Chic Armenian Wedding at Bently Reserve in San Francisco, CA

Something I love about weddings is that you see a couple’s emotions and love culminate surrounded by close family and loved ones. The latest hair dues atop the fashionably dressed guests. The bride and groom dance the night they’ve been planning for on average a year. They hire a wedding planner, pick a venue, a bridal dress, a photographer, music, invitation designer, a wedding cake. These are just a few of the professionals that come together to create a seamless wedding day.

This was the case for my cousin Sevan and his lovely bride Melissa who are an Armenian couple residing in California. Sevan is from Los Angeles and Melissa is from the Bay Area. My cousin is a tall, handsome Armenian guy and his bride is a petite, beautiful Armenian girl. When they come together as the King and Queen as the priest announced in his sermon at St. Vartan Armenian Church in Oakland, they create something more than the individuals they have been: now hey are a couple. Although modern life has made marriage something to struggle through or maybe it always was, young people and old ones alike can’t resist that special feeling which is love. Hopefully, in the best of marriages this love will not only withstand life challenges but flourish and make everything better! This is my wish for my cousin Sevan and his bride Melissa. I hope the beautiful day will be one for them to look back on and reminisce for 100 years and more.

Here are some of the details that made Melissa & Sevan’s Wedding Day very elegant. First of all they had a wonderful team of wedding planners from Simple Little Details who embroidered the right threads to create the Special Day. We were lucky enough to help them create their custom wedding invitation using Checkerboad designs from Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy. It was a very bright and beautiful October Day in San Francisco. We witnessed the wedding in Oakland, CA. The guests were then invited to Bently Reserve to celebrate this joyous day.

The lighting, music the venue everything comes together for many special moments. Our couple chose a beautiful pocket invitation from our Checkerboard Designs. All of their stationery matched including their place cards and menus. We also printed the couple’s wedding envelopes using Hyegraph’s Digital Calligraphy Service. Among the appetizers were wonderful sliders and sushi from their family owned Sushi & Seafood Restaurant, Kimono Restaurant, in Benicia, CA.  There was fun music in Armenian and International languages. The guests and bride & groom had a wonderful time. Wishing great joy and health to our newly married couple!

The William Arthur Weddings Album Volume Three showcases some unique, brand new inspiring designs including this Ecru heavy weight bristol foil stamped navy blue painted edge card our client chose for her October wedding taking place in San Francisco at the City View at the Metreon!

This gold foil card is breathtaking with the couple’s name in large script fonts and the rest of the invite in block lettering. This makes an attractive and impressive invitation to a luxurious affair. The details are striking including the navy blue edges to the heavy weight bristol ecru card stock from William Arthur. The back of the card is plain ecru. Our couple, Shilpa & Blake also chose the matching gold foil polka dot design envelope liner (cost $25/25 lined envelopes).

Jacques addressed the couple’s invitation envelopes with Hyegraph’s Elegant Digital Calligraphy for Envelope Addressing (cost $1.00 per envelope). The couple also chose the printed envelopes with the Hindu Ganesha Symbol for the return envelope addressing (cost $716 for 25 invitations with single envelope printed).

This invitation is rich with detail and lavish with gold foils and painted edges. Together with the lined envelopes (gold polka dots, image not shown) and the printed Hindu Ganesha Symbol make a statement of refined taste and simultaneous opulence.

ITALIAN WEDDING INVITATIONS FROM HYEGRAPH INVITATIONS & CALLIGRAPHY

We recently created these beautiful Wedding Invitations for our client who picked up her stationery from Italy. She wanted us to add the artwork and print her invitations for her May wedding taking place in Ojai, California. We printed her Wedding Invitations on this Fine Italian Paper by Medioevalis.

Wedding Invitation printed with Digital Calligraphy on Fine Italian Paper in Trajan & Burgus Font Style:

Wedding Invitation printed with Digital Calligraphy on Fine Italian Paper using Trajan & Burgus Font Styles in Charcoal Ink www.hyegraph.com/calligraphy

The above Fine Italian Stationery was brought in by our client from Italy. The texture of the paper, made in Italy by Medioevalis, is amazing: old world paper, rustic, vintage. When we added our elegant digital calligraphy in charcoal grey and our pink artwork design it became amazing. We used Trajan Font Style for the body of the text and Burgus Font Style for the Bride & Groom names. We love recommending this combination lettering, where the bride & groom’s names are printed larger and in a different font than the rest of the wedding invitation wording. It’s a very effective method and catches your guests’ attention right to the names of the bride & groom.
