RW: Lizette + Harrison’s Custom Watercolor Crest Vineyard Wedding

Monday, April 18, 2016

Today L + H’s Napa winery custom watercolor crest wedding is featured today on Style Me Pretty! (It feels like the month of the custom watercolor heraldry on the blog!) Lizette came to us with her crest already designed by Happy Menocal, and we designed a wedding invitation suite + day-of paper elements with it. Her watercolor crest had olive branches + grape leaves as a nod to her family’s vineyard in California  (which was also the wedding venue, so special!). Scroll down to check out all the pretty paper details and head over to Style Me Pretty for the full feature!

RW: Elizabeth + Matt’s Custom Watercolor Crest Farm Wedding

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Today I’m sharing Elizabeth + Matt’s watercolor crest gold foil farm wedding from last September! They got married at the gorgeous Inn at Fernbrook Farms in New Jersey. The space is filled with color from lush gardens (a dream for me!), so we made sure their wedding paper story reflected just that.

Their story started with one of Lemontree Calligraphy’s gorgeous custom heraldry crest work. Ever since my feature on Oh So Beautiful Paper for Jen + Barron’s custom watercolor crest invitation suite, the inquiries for crest have been pouring in! I love when couples opt for the crest as it speaks to the core of what Roseville loves: creating something that truly reflects the bride + groom. Elizabeth even used the watercolor crest on a custom cornhole set! For the invitation we paired the crest with classic fonts + gorgeous gold foil, and carried her classic floral style through her entire paper story.

Elizabeth + Matt, thank you for being the kindest + most organized clients a girl could get! I wish you continued happiness in your journey together.

Vendor Spotlight on Love & Lobster Blog

Friday, February 26, 2016

Today Roseville Designs gets the vendor spotlight on Love & Lobster! Their site is chock full of coastal New England wedding inspiration (we know a nautical wedding will never go out of style!), and I was psyched when they approached me about this feature. I loved the questions they asked, as they made me stop + think about what makes Roseville Designs stand out from the crowd. Head over to the blog for the full feature!

Small Business Mom

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

There must be something in the water, because as I was gearing up to write this personal blog post I came across a couple from other fellow wedding vendors on the same subject, including one from the fabulous Ashley Therese Photography.

Finley caught a nasty cold last week, so I kept her out of daycare to rest + recover. The only thing I had to do that day when I made the decision was cancel a doctor’s appointment; no boss to call, no out-of-office message to post. Sometimes it’s easy to focus on the downside of balancing a business + a family: that there is no one to cover my “desk”, that much of my personal time is spent working. However, that day I really clung to the upside. Being my own boss means making my own hours, and an hour I choose to be with my daughter is one I never regret.

Finley has recently become obsessed with my phone. I showed her some videos of her and now that is her #1 favorite activity. I try to play this card only when I really need it (e.g. when doing her pigtails), but if she even sees me look at my phone she races over expecting a viewing party. Her latest obsession has forced me to put down the phone (and hide it behind a couch pillow), quiet the noise of email + social media, and be present. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about multi-tasking, but there’s a difference between management + distraction. I now work smarter (and try to still always get my 3 things done each day) as I have a newfound respect for the gift of free time. I still fall down the rabbit hole of Instagram, and have already failed at my goal to go to yoga once a week in 2016, but I’m trying not to waste energy beating myself up for things like that.

That day I let the feeling of gratitude wash over me. I’m grateful for two jobs that I work my butt off for, that fulfill me in different + wonderful ways.

RW: Nina + Brian @ Inn at Longshore

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

I usually don’t like to play favorites with my weddings, they’re like my kids. But Nina + Brian’s wedding is one that is very close to my heart. Not only was the couple fabulous to work with (which included the assistance of the amazing planner Amy Champagne), but their wedding + style was signature Roseville. Fun, fresh, while still elegant + thoughtful.

Bonus: their wedding was just featured on Style Me Pretty!

Here’s a new little thing I’m doing for my blog posts – one shot of the progression of the paper story!

Blush Gold Foil Longshore Wedding

For the save the dates, they wanted to be a little more relaxed + fun. And what’s more fun than watercolor + gold foil?

I loved all the sparkle touches against the soft blushes + pinks!

For the invitation, we went a bit more elegant with subtle watercolor branches + blush envelopes. I loved the calligraphy style from the fabulous Belles Lettres Calligraphy!

It’s important to me to think about the entire tablescape–linens, china, flatware–when I design the day-of paper. This way I can create an overall look that is thoughtful + well-balanced.

So many fun paper details! The coasters for guests to put on their glass so they aren’t taken while they dance are my favorite.

Nina + Brian, thank you for being such a beautiful, stylish + relaxed couple, and letting me come along for the ride in your wedding planning! I’ll miss our chats about paper details + baby nap schedules, and wish you the best on your continued journey as a family of three.

WeddingWire 2016 Couples’ Choice Award Winner

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

What a thrill to hear that for the third straight year, Roseville Designs has received The 2016 WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award! The award recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness + professionalism. What makes this award extra special is that it’s solely based on reviews from our wonderful couples.

They say at restaurants that people come because of the food, and return because of the service. For me, often what reels people in is the pretty paper they see on my website or Instagram, but I truly believe that people book me because of what I offer beyond an online shop or paperie. An award like this means that I’m delivering on my promises. This year one of my goals is to streamline my processes even further so I can deliver even more to future clients. Stay tuned!

2015 + A Thank You To My Couples

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

This year has brought another set of challenges + accomplishments, days feeling like I can do it all and others where I seem to have fallen short on all counts. On the defeatist days, looking at photos of my couples always reinvigorates me. I’m blessed to have a job where I get paid to be creative, and to work with people during one of the most exciting times in their lives. I’m blessed that this job lets me be a mom + wife on my terms, which is what I wished for when I walked down the aisle. It’s not always easy, but at the end of the year when I add it up, the joy far outweighs the struggle.

Here are just a handful of my amazing clients who this year have inspired + challenged me in new ways, and I say thank you to all of you.

Winter Rose Quartz Wedding Inspiration

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Normally winter isn’t the season I yearn for, but looking at these shots from our winter woods shoot reminded me of the magic that comes with a crisp, snowy day! I created menu cards + chair signage inspired by music lyrics, against the backdrop of vintage china + ethereal December florals.

Serendipitously William Parkinson Events’ concept celebrates the fabulous Pantone color of the year: serenity + rose quartz. {Read more about that on Pantone’s website!}. I love the edgy yet soft choice they made for next year’s color forecast, and can’t wait to see how it influences the season’s wedding trends.

Bonus: This was featured on Inspired By This Blog in their winter inspiration wrap-up!

Bright Boho Persian Wedding Shoot Featured on Wedding Chicks

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

If you know me then you know of my love for all things bright + bohemian, so getting to incorporate both into a styled wedding shoot made me a very happy girl. Seeing it featured on The Wedding Chicks Blog was the icing on the cake!

The main inspiration was Persian wedding traditions, while mixing in some playful boho details. I was fascinated by the intricate Persian textile patterns, which I incorporated into the envelope liner. I pulled shapes from the pattern for the rest of the suite + other paper details, like the menu cards and packets of lavender for guests to toss.

RW: Sean + Robb @ Connecticut Private Home

Monday, August 17, 2015

Sean + Robb’s aviation backyard wedding was a one-of-a-kind design, so it’s no surprise to see it featured on Snippet & Ink and gracing the pages of The Knot Magazine!

The grooms are both pilots, so they celebrated their shared passion with aviation details throughout the wedding, designed + coordinated by the amazing Amy Champagne Events. I kept the paper modern + masculine, with escort cards resembling boarding passes, paper airplane menus, and table cards named after their favorite airports. Scroll down to see the gorgeous images, courtesy of Athena Blude Photography!
