{jeff+katie's wedding paper goods}

As you might have seen on instagram last month, we travelled back to Southern California to celebrate the wedding of two of our very good friends, Jeff and Katie.  The event was absolutely beautiful and one of the most fun weekends I have ever had.  The couple was married at one of the most lush southern california venues called Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado Canyon.  Besides being a massive estate with a gorgeous area for the ceremony/reception, there is also a menagerie of zoo animals on the property including tigers and zebras!!

Katie asked myself and fellow bridesmaid, Kay, to help out with creating the menus and programs for the event which we were more than happy to do (and by happy I mean ecstatic- we all know how much I obsess over paper goods!).  We drew inspiration from the color of the bridesmaid's dresses and went with a simple design that showcased white text against the saturated blush/coral backdrop.  And then we of course had them printed at the best kept secret in downtown LA.

Here are a few snapshots of the menus and programs in action on the big day (you can see even more of the lovely photos from this day on their wedding photographer Cean One's blog right here):

Congrats Jeff & Katie!

  1. These programs are amazing! I am leaning towards creating my own - do you mind emailing the font names you used (thebrunetteone@live.com)? I have a screen shot of a restaurant menu that looks similar to these and I hope to make mine like this! I love how they gave everyone a bottle of beer!

    1. Hi Samantha,

      The fonts are:

      block: Sackers Gothic Medium
      script: Jacques & Gilles

      Hope that helps! :)


  2. Those programs and menu cards are so pretty! Love the font and color! xoxo, Lindsay

  3. Natalie,

    These are beautiful! Jacques & Gilles is one of my favorite fonts and I love the way you paired it with the block font.

    Thanks for such inspiration!

    Cheers! Jessica

  4. Great article ! I would like to realize after you update your blog, you believe become a member of your blog?.This assisted us a great deal. I’d been touch aware regarding this your posting set it up apparent plan

  5. i absolutely LOVE these and want to recreate them for everything in my wedding (including the invitations)!!! where did you get the paper? do you know what color it is (also for the programs)? is there a certain type/grade of paper you recommend using? thanks so much!

    1. Hi there,

      These were printed at Columbia Printing in downtown Los Angeles. The paper was provided by them and the color is printed directly onto it. We did not use a colored paper. The paper is a 120lb uncoated cardstock which I would recommend using or even going thicker with a 140lb or more!

      Hope that helps!


  6. The menus and programs are so awesome! Do you have a template?
