We love seeing the real weddings of our customers, but it’s an extra-special treat when we get to see them in print! Martha Stewart Weddings magazine featured not one, but two real weddings of Bella Figura brides & grooms in their Fall 2012 issue. The first wedding featured our modern Pyramid design by Ellie Snow, while the second showcased our Garden Vine design by Erin Jang. Check out some of the other fantastic publications that Bella Figura has been spotted in this fall.
Inside Weddings included several Bella Figura invitations for their Fall 2012 issue as well — Kelle Anne McCarter’s Canto design, Lindsy Aragona’s Overlook design and a customization of Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Cecilia all shared the spotlight.
Town & Country Weddings put together a fabulous round-up of inspiration for a New York City wedding, and included a gorgeous customization of our Charmed New York invitation design as part of the feature.
Pacific Weddings magazine included Ian Koenig’s Dash design and Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Indie Twill design in their gorgeous, equestrian-inspired reception set-up. Bonus: they’ve got even more photos from this amazing shoot on their website!
Brides magazine featured Bella Figura in both their October and their November issues! In October, letterpress place cards featuring our Rosemary design were included as part of a Tuscan Garden inspiration palette. The November issue featured several Bella Figura designs — our Bejeweled design fit in perfectly with a “Roaring Twenties” inspiration page (which is overflowing with glamorous, Gatsby-esque touches) and three of our foil stamped invitations (Dada by Jamie Lea Bertsch; Glamorous Blooms and Fugue by Kamal) were included in an “All that Glitters” feature.
It’s time again to say thanks to the amazing magazine and blog editors that featured Bella Figura’s letterpress wedding invitations over the summer! The Knot featured 3 different Bella Figura designs in their beautiful Fall 2012 issue: the ever-popular New Calligraphy design by Debi Zeinert, and our Vintage Gardiner and Pochoir designs by Amy Graham Stigler.
Gifts and Decorative Accessories Magazine featured our hot pink and day-glo orange Storybook Romance invitation design in their May 2012 issue.
We’d also love to say thanks to the following blogs for featuring our invitations on their amazing sites! BRIDES, Green Wedding Shoes, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Southern Weddings, Invitation Crush, Blue Bergitt, Paper Crave, Racked, Charlotte Lucey, and Woodsy Wedding.
We were thrilled to work with event planner Shawna Marie for this amazing inspiration shoot (which is overflowing with gold and glamour) that was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! This dazzling save the date session served as a preview for the couple’s upcoming gold, black and white wedding soiree, and our Glamorous Blooms design set the perfect tone. A stunning starburst mirror, cute cupcakes and glittery glassware matched the style of the invitation perfectly and set the tone for an ultra-glamorous save the date party. Head on over to Style Me Pretty to see even more photos from the shoot!

Bella Figura’s letterpress wedding invitations have been featured in some fantastic publications lately, and thanks are long overdue for these amazing spotlights! Today we’ve got a round-up of some of the wonderful press we’ve received this spring. First up, a fabulous customization of our String Calligraphy design that was featured in an A-Z stationery guide by Martha Stewart Weddings. The featured piece was a letterpress rehearsal dinner invitation in hot pink ink with a perforated, tear-off reply postcard.
The April issue of Brides magazine featured Bella Figura invitations twice! A customization of our Lace invitations (complete with a custom, Lace patterned envelope liner!) fit in perfectly with a Black Lace trend watch, and our String Calligraphy design was also featured in a fabulous stationery guide.
The gorgeous Volume IV of Southern Weddings magazine included an amazing spread with a theme called “Paper, Cotton, and Flour”, and we were so thrilled to be a part of this fabulous photo shoot! Our Honoured Guest, Loretta Formal, Collection, Bradford, and Anais designs were all letterpress printed in pretty shades of blue for the shoot.
We were also thrilled to be a part of the following photo shoots: Erica Ann Photography’s Scandinavian Inspired Bridal Shoot; Starfish Studios + Sugar(ed) Occasions Estancia Culinaria photo shoot (as seen on Style Me Pretty Florida!); a fabulous purple & gold inspiration shoot by Dana Fitzgerald and Katelyn James, as seen on The Wedding Chicks; and Equally Wed’s eco-inspired photo shoot. We’d also love to thank the following blogs for featuring Bella Figura invitations on their fabulous sites over the past few months: Style Me Pretty (times 2!), The Bride’s Guide on Martha Stewart Weddings, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Ruffled, Green Wedding Shoes, Elizabeth Anne Designs, 100 Layer Cake, Papercrave, Junebug Weddings, Brooklyn Bride, Eco-Beautiful Weddings, Invitation Crush, Heart Love Weddings, Love Me Do, One Fab Day, The Confetti Blog, and Chic Vintage Brides.
Earlier this year, we worked with Alice and Beth from Alice G. Patterson Photography on an amazing project we’re really excited to share. Featured recently on Green Wedding Shoes, this collaboration features some of our most popular letterpress invitation designs alongside some incredible miniatures. Alice and Beth set up these picturesque scenes and we were completely blown away with the end result — take a look!
We just love when magazines and blogs decide to showcase the beautiful letterpress printing we get to do every day, so today we’re sharing some of the amazing features Bella Figura has been spotted in over the past few months. One of the most recent spotlights was found in the fall 2011 issue of Inside Weddings, where Kamal‘s majestic Bejeweled design sparkled.
We spotted another stunning Bella Figura bride and groom real wedding feature on Style Me Pretty! The ceremony and reception took place at the historic Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona. We love the details, color scheme, and most of all the jaw-dropping open-back dress by Monique Lhuillier. Our Victoria Calligraphy Letterpress Invitations by Sarah Hanna were printed in black ink on our luxurious 2-ply ivory paper and perfectly complimented the event with classic elegance.
The couple planned an outdoor ceremony and reception all within a “garden-party” theme but encountered an unexpected twist! The bride says, “The weather gods had a different plan for us, however, as it decided to pour the day of our wedding and was freezing cold (ok, it was in the 40s, but that’s freezing for us Arizonans!)We made the decision to move everything indoors the morning of the wedding and I was a little concerned that our Plan B back-up space would end up looking like a generic ballroom. However, through sheer determination and incredibly hard work, our design team, Avant-Garde Studio, and our event planner, Rhonda Rush, were able to “recreate” my garden party theme indoors. Avant-Garde even built the entire tent structure inside the ballroom and draped all of the walls. They made the ballroom incredibly unique looking and beautiful. We moved the ceremony into the architecturally stunning Aztec Ballroom and it turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Despite the rain, the day was perfect, and the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. The sun even made an appearance long enough for our wonderful photographer, Elyse Hall, to snap some beautiful outdoor shots before the festivities began. The food was delicious, the music was lively and the dancing seemed to last all night, just like we wanted.”
It’s time to show a little love to the editors, magazines and bloggers who have been so sweet as to feature our work recently. It is always an honor to get to show off the gorgeous things we’re printing for our stylish clients. First up, Inside Weddings who recently featured our String, Sonoma and Victoria calligraphy letterpress invitations.
WellWed showcased a stunning Bella Figura real wedding where the couple chose our Keswick letterpress invitations.
It’s time to play a bit of catch up on some recent press mentions! We always love working with editors from our favorite magazines, so we wanted to take a moment to thank them for spreading the love.
