Vendor Spotlight is On: Paper & Pearl

Vendor Spotlight is on Paper & Pearl; a full-service stationery design firm specializing in beautiful luxury of all things paper.

1. How did your business come to be? 

I launched Paper & Pearl in 2014 after a long career in sales and through my passion for beautiful paper and design.  I always dreamed of owning a stationery store, but with a growing trend towards on-line shopping, I decided that an e-commerce business was the way to go.

2. What are the services you offer? 

For my bridal clients, I offer a personal consultation to learn about all the lovely details of the wedding and how I could help turn their vision into the perfect wedding invitation suite.  I also offer “Day Of” wedding items like programs, menus, escort cards, specialty drink signs — basically anything that needs to be on paper!  I also carry a full line of beautiful stationery on the Paper & Pearl website by some of the best names in stationery.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service? 

I operate Paper & Pearl from my home studio in Bristol.  Because of the nature of my business, consultations are best done in my home studio where my clients and I meet and go through the many samples and albums that I carry to come up with the perfect invitation suite.  I have also worked with long-distance couples via Skype or emails.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?   

To alleviate the stress, I recommend that consultation be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of the wedding. This will give us plenty of time to select the design elements and go through the proofing process for any edits.  Some designers I work with have long lead times for printing, which needs to be considered.

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides? 

My best advice to couples is that they should look at their invitation suite as a way of setting the tone for their wedding day.  Invitations are the first glimpses guests will receive of the couples style and theme for the day and lets them know they are special people to the couple.

My best tip for couples when ordering invitations is to have the invitation envelopes pre-printed with the guest’s names and addresses!  This is a wonderful, time saver and an inexpensive add-on.

Sage, Coral, and Cerulean – A Color Story

Late summer wedding right on the cusp of autumn inspired a color story of sage, coral, and cerulean that blended the seasons seamlessly.

On the lawn of where the bride’s parents had been married 30 years prior, a clear Chase Canopy tent was transformed into a magical forest. The couple called on Allison from Elegant Engagements to source the talent for the day. Sayles Livingston Design created floral trees in rich green hues with pops of coral that decorated each long table. “Our florist, Sayles Livingston, did a great job of interpreting our request for lush arrangements with interesting and unusual accents,” the bride raved. As a nod to the salt marshes and Nantucket sound that surrounded them, real scallop shells that were collected on the beach by the bride’s parents decorated each place setting. Cerulean was introduced into the color story through linens and the bridesmaid dresses, complimenting the palette perfectly. Twinkling lights strung above completed the magical forest vibe.

Vendor Spotlight On: Chase Canopy

This week’s Vendor Spotlight is on Chase Canopy! Stay tuned for real wedding Wednesday for a wedding featuring their beautiful tent!

1. How did your business come to be? 

Chase Canopy is a family business! It’s where it all began, and how we continue to grow. Brothers, Dan and Andrew Chase, were initially cabinet makers by trade. While still working at cabinet shops during the day, they built their first 20 x 20 tent for a neighborhood party in a one-car garage that belonged to their grandmother. When the party was over, a friend needed a tent and rented it from them! And so it began!  At that point they saw the opportunity and built a second one, a 20 x 40 tent, and began advertising it for rent. They soon discovered , however, it was impractical to create tents larger than that, so in 1979 they began purchasing inventory for Chase Canopy Company.

Today our company maintains a well-stocked inventory that serves both residential and commercial users. We offer a complete line of rental equipment for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, graduations, etc. In addition, we specialize in custom-event flooring, staging, and tent washing. Because we have a good working relationship with many of the tent and awning companies in the region we wanted to share with them a much needed service to keep all tents sparkling.  As a result, we recently built a 50 x 120 foot facility with a 35′  high ceiling. This warehouse can accommodate the washing and drying of tents in all sizes. Living in a seaside community, our tent washing equipment can also help sail boat companies and owners keep their sails looking their brightest in the ocean as well.

Since 1979, we have been serving Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts Cape Cod and Nantucket, and continue to grow!

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides? 

Have fun! With every step of your planning journey you are creating experiences. They can be good, some bad, some crazed, but they are all memories. What may have been the plan since your were little, might blossom into something even more beautiful. Be open to changing the plan, and go with the flow. Ah yes, and trust the professionals! We want to make your day perfect, that’s why we chose this business! It will go by fast, so cherish every second and enjoy it. The best part is that you are getting MARRIED!!!!
