National Stationery Show

I had the BEST time this week visiting the National Stationery Show! It’s a little bit of paper heaven on earth, seriously. Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper has done several recaps of the week (each one featuring a ton of gorgeous stationery, so you should definitely check them out).  Cyd from The Sweetest Occasion will also be doing a recap next week, so keep on the lookout for that!

There were several “wedding”-related booths I thought you guys might want to see!  Big thanks to Luke from Clark+Walker Studio, who was kind enough to stop by and capture these photos.

First up, Rifle Paper Co. Anna Bond’s work is all over the blog world so I know you’ve seen it!  It’s very distinctive and just plain adorable, and her booth was no different.  Anna’s was one of the few booths who really showed off their wedding collection, so of course, I was thrilled.  I adore her illustrated wedding invitations, especially those featuring floral details.

A NSS visit is of course not complete without several visits to the Smock booth, which was filled to the brim with gorgeous gift wrapping and gift boxes, wedding invitations, social stationery, and business cards.

The Old Tom Foolery booth, while not quite wedding-related, was absolutely adorable.  Can you spot Nole and I on their Wall O’ Fools?  It is probably the first and only time I have “worn” a moustache on a stick!

The Mr. Boddington’s Studio was just too cute – the shingles are envelopes with colorful liners.  Definitely one of the most imaginative booths, and Rebecca, the owner, was so sweet!

The ladies at Hello! Lucky showed off lots of their letterpress greeting cards in their booth.

And last but not least, Margot and Steve from Atelier Isabey were so wonderful to chat with.  Their philosophy of really incorporating the couple and the things that are important to them into invitation suites truly hits home to me.   My favorite of their letterpress invitations has a scene with the engaged couple walking their pup in Central Park (you can see it right here).

I also visited and loved, but sadly have no photos of, the Hannah Handmade booth.

So there you have it, a few of my favorite wedding-related booths!  Which is your favorite?
