The artistic sculptures and volumes of bright blown glass made a dramatic backdrop of shape and color for Amy+Bob’s reception at Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass, while the beautiful October day, blessed with rare fall sunshine and blue sky, made it all the more glowing.  Planned and produced down to the last detail by Lisa Chambers of the reputable Chambers & Co., the event was elegant and exquisitely polished to reflect the exceptional style of the couple and stunning visual quality of the venue.  The impeccable, creative photography of Joe+Jill captured the event in all of it’s brilliance.  

As an introduction, Paper Moxie crafted an invitation to blend traditional details with contemporary elements. We loved how their vivid, saturated palette showed strong against the pure white ground and minimalist embellishment.  A letterpress announcement, resting beneath a sheer monogram, was encased in a bright blue fold with crisp orange satin ribbon closure. The metallic citrus lined envelopes and calligraphy styled cursive fonts added extra flair.  As fun, interactive elements, the couple included a crossword puzzle on the reverse of their Save the Date that quizzed guests with bits of “get to know us” trivia,  and provided puzzle pieces to sign instead of the usual guest book at the wedding.

Gorgeous and glowing, there could not have been a more perfect reflection for a beautiful couple.

Red carpet entrance. Names cast in light  across a steely exterior.  A step & repeat backdrop to capture guest photos. Mirrored glass reflections and stages set with a glowing light show. These are details you would expect from the highest of Hollywood ceremonies, yet belong to none other than the most unusual and unforgettable wedding at Seattle’s own Experience Music Project:  Ian+Obie. Known for their highly anticipated parties, the couple did not disappoint by forgoing calm nuptial tradition for an unforgettable evening of pure dramatic fun and celebration that matched their personalities.

Crafted, designed and produced by the very talented Lisa Chambers of Chambers & Co, Ian and Obie’s wedding was nothing near traditional, and nothing short of spectacular.  While guests drank and ate amid cut glass globes and dramatic lighting, the couple exchanged vows onstage to a room of applause. The before and after party was pure sensation, with champagne poured from acrobats as they hung from the ceiling, cake served by Lady Gaga (was she the real deal?), and glittering details in shocking white and rich reflective shades of everchanging orchid.

Paper Moxie created a suite of goods to fit the dramatic introduction:  the Save the Date was enveloped in a custom print wrap to replicate the outer steel skin of the venue, graphic and structural, while a border of  mylar produced a touch of mirrored shine.

The invite, inspired by vinyl records and modern industrial materials, was a high gloss black lucite panel wrapped in shimmering plum metallic paper and presented in a black lacquer box. Custom cut round monogram chargers and graphic menu programs greeted each guest at the table, while the reflective silver escorts were self standing on a surface of disco glass.  Multiple lighting gobos and step & repeat photo backdrop completed the look.

Photography for the evening was gorgeously captured by Jennifer Tai of Jennifer Tai Photo Artistry. Her candid work captured both the warmth and celebration of the couple, and the cool dramatic nuance of the evening.

Bravo!

Check out this link to a spectacular and thoroughly unique wedding featuring Paper Moxie custom invitations and paper goods! A beautiful couple with a wonderful sense of style and a great team of vendors who knew how to capture and showcase their personality perfectly. We had a love affair with their style ~ it was so much fun to work with a couple who were appreciative of details and elements that makes an event so personal. Love the cat & dog program fans and bits of humor throughout an otherwise elegant affair. Kudos to Lisa Chambers of Chambers and Company (Seattle), and the Sodo Park venue & team, as well as the spectacular shots from Michele M. Waite photography. Truly a winning combination! http://greenweddingshoes.com/sodo-park-seattle-wedding-sarah-parker/

Revising my website gave me a chance to pause and ponder over the last seven years of creativity. Each invitation brings back memories of the events we’ve introduced, and the people we’ve been introduced TO.  It is overwhelming to sense the number of stories behind the paper  ~ joyful couples heading down the aisle,  families in bloom with new babies, feeling clients become as familiar as friends, and appreciating the anticipation of a child’s first birthday.  Each year is a new game. Every event is a day up at bat.  A chance to hit a home run and make an extraordinary play. We look forward to showcasing our 2013 events on the site soon!
