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!

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.

The Essential Guide To Wedding Invitation Info Cards

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Today I’m sharing the essential guide to wedding invitation info cards!

Ah, the elusive information card for your wedding invitation suite. I constantly get questions from clients on wording for details cards. The truth is, it’s not one size fits all. What you include really depends on your guests + your wedding details, but here are a few things I always tell my couples…


{Photo Cred: Kate Maxwell Photography}

1. Include Your Wedding Website

I can’t stress this one enough! You may have put it on your save the date, but it’s a long time between when they get the save the date and then the invitation. Though you want to believe your save the date is proudly displayed in their home, the truth is it may have eventually gotten bumped off for another fridge-worthy piece of snail mail. (If you’re looking for a great wedding website service, check out appycouple.com. It has password-protected options and has mobile-friendly versions!)

2. Decide if a details card is necessary

Though I believe the wedding website somewhere in your suite is a must, if you have a reception card where you can include the URL you may be able to forego the info card completely! (Woo hoo – money saver!)

3. Share Some Information, Not All Information

In this digital era, people don’t need turn-by-turn directions. If the location is hard to find or there’s some snag in the usual route, it’s helpful to include that detail. But at the end of the day, most of us have our smartphones which give us all the info we need.¬† This is why including the wedding website is so important; it gives you the opportunity to communicate as much info as you want to your guests online, and update it as things change (e.g. one hotel block books up!).

3. Reiterate Weekend Details to Hotel Guests

It’s great to tell people about the Sunday brunch on the info card or website, but they may not remember all this the weekend activities of your wedding (especially if they’ve had a few too many signature cocktails at the bar the night before!). This is why a welcome bag or some note to hotel guests is vital. Shuttle times, Sunday brunch; this is information that needs to be reiterated upon arrival!


{Photo Cred: Vicki + Erik Photographers}

The key is to strike a balance of being helpful + informative without overwhelming your guests with too much information on one card. Follow these guidelines, and you’re sure to have happy + well-informed guests!

RW: Monika + Andrew @ Waveny House

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Monika + Andrew’s spring Waveny House wedding was right up my alley in its style, vibe, and overall gorgeous look. I worked with the bride + always fabulous Amy Champagne Events to create a paper story that married her Kentucky roots with their rustic watercolor theme,¬† and I’m thrilled to see it featured in the latest issue of Bliss Celebrations! The invitations featured a custom watercolor design and the suite was finished off with a wax seal, a nod to the wax on top of bourbon bottles. Every detail was on point: from the mini bourbon bottle favors that also served as escort cards to the chalkboard place card chargers (and look at that cake by Erica O’Brien!). Scroll down to see all the amazing photos courtesy of Red Anchor Photo!

Paper Stories

Thursday, May 21, 2015

“Paper stories” are something I’ve been talking about a lot recently. It’s part of my tagline with the new brand look, but it’s really the core of what makes Roseville different. Everyone’s story is different. For some I’m only part of one chapter, perhaps just the invitations. But more often I get in right from the start, when the colors are chosen and the style is determined, but so much is still open to explore. We work on save the dates, invitations, thank you cards, and day-of paper wedding details. When I get those clients, I get a special treat at the end: seeing the story from start to finish. As I was packing up this day-of paper for a very special May bride, I got out the rest of their paper goods to look at the culmination of months of planning, emails, design, assembly, and delivery. I’m so grateful to my couples who invite me in to their wedding planning (no pun intended, really!).

Looking forward to all the paper stories unfolding for the season…

RW: Kate + Rob @ Riverside Yacht Club

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Kate + Rob’s nautical + preppy Riverside Yacht Club wedding is a perfect example of all the fun that can be had with day-of paper. They didn’t come to me until after their invitations had been done, but even with my late entrance an amazing wedding paper story was created. Scroll down to see all the fun details, beautifully executed by the Stella Day Events team. Thanks to Brian Hatton Photography for all the gorgeous shots!


Kate + Rob, you were so fun to work with from start to finish, and I wish you a lifetime of joy together!

Real Wedding: Ashley + Matt @ Belle Mer Newport

Monday, December 22, 2014

A + M’s sea glass-inspired August Newport wedding is on Style Me Pretty today! It’s such a thrill to look back at this August wedding, since it features one of the Rosy Collection’s most popular suites: The Paris!

Michalovsky_Codd_Sweet_Monday_Photography_AM074_lowWhat Ashley did with her invitation suite is exactly what I wanted The Rosy Collection to provide. She chose a design but made it her own with premium paper, selected fonts, and her beautiful wedding colors of soft blues + greens. At our consultation I just knew we were in for a glorious partnership.


There was so much pretty in this wedding, beautifully captured by Sweet Monday Photography! And her custom Modern Trosseau gown from The White Dress By The Shore? Perfection.


We kept that look + feel with her day-of paper and wedding goodies. She had such a great vision and really cared about all the little details, which made her paper story so well-crafted. We carried over a watercolor + pineapple theme with program fans, welcome bag inserts, and signage throughout the reception.


She had a great play on words with her new last name of Codd, and she managed to take our custom monogram and put it on ice!


I love a great escort card display, because it really sets the done for your guests as they enter the reception.


Congratulations to The Codds! You are so wonderful + I can only hope for more clients like you in the season to come.

Introducing The Rosy Collection 2015

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Today I’m thrilled to finally release my refreshed ready-made wedding invitation collection. The Rosy Collection includes 8 new suites, with the remaining 19 updated for the 2015 season!

modern affordable wedding invitations

Though there are a lot of new designs, the purpose of the collection remains the same: to provide a budget-friendly invitation option for modern couples who have great style + a vision for their wedding! What makes this different than going to your local paperie or online stationery site? If you become a collection client, you’re still a Roseville client. All those perks you get working with me as your paper planner still apply. (Want to know what it means to be a Roseville client? Email me for more details.) Corresponding day-of paper designs (escort cards, menus, etc.) are available for all suites as well!



Head over to the new + improved Rosy Collection webpage to peruse all the suites + fun new details. There is also a digital Rosy Collection Guide which is available to potential clients + wedding planners.

(Thanks to Kate Maxwell Photography for her amazing photography + co-paper styling talents!)
