Paper By The Bay – Luxury Wedding Stationary

I was so excited when my family portrait client, Kelly, casually mentioned her bespoke luxury wedding stationary business, Paper By The Bay!  I knew I had to take photos of her gorgeous designs.  Kelly’s work is elegant, and perfectly crafted. Kelly pays close attention to every detail to ensure perfection, and the feel and quality of the paper she uses is insanely luxurious.

 

Here’s what Kelly has to say:

“We create bespoke, luxury wedding stationery to set the tone for your special day. In the digital era, I bring back tradition and elegance as I help you define your style and tell your story on paper.

Opening your wedding invitation should be an exciting experience that tells your love story on paper and is an extension of you and your personal style. I’m here to help you create that pin-worthy invitation suite that will impress your family and friends, letting everybody know this is an event not to be missed. It’s your wedding, and templated designs aren’t as unique as your love story. Bespoke stationery is the only way to go. Let me be your expert at all things paper. I work closely with couples just like you to create meaningful wedding stationery that is your vision of perfect.

Approach

I take a holistic approach to how your paper will enhance your special day, and make sure all the elements are cohesive. Paper by the Bay is a boutique, full-service stationery studio, where you’ll receive special one-on-one attention.”

About Paper By The Bay

Kelly is based out of Napa Valley, and can serve just about any bride across the country. MFP Brides – I highly suggest inquiring with Paper By The Bay when it comes to tying in your style with a traditional, elegantly crafted suite.  Her resume speaks volumes. Kelly has worked her way from the ground up. She has designed for small ad agencies, non profits, and universities. Most recently, Kelly worked in Senior Design positions for national retailers. Each invitation suite she creates is made with love.

Brides, take this opportunity to collaborate on bespoke stationary for your wedding suite. Ink and digital copies are boring and don’t translate well when you have such gorgeous, high end details. Not all papers are made the same. Go with something that’s going to become an heirloom in your family for years to come!
