Google+ National Stationery Show, Part VI - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

If you’re like me, you never want the paper goodness to end. Even though this is my last post recapping the 2011 National Stationery Show, I made it an extra long just for my fellow paper lovers :)

First up? The Lettered Olive, brainchild of fabulous Southern event planner Tara Guerard. Booth design? Amazing. Almost as pretty as her actual designs, which are beyond luxurious. Also, Tara has replaced the traditional album you’d flip through in a stationery store with a box of custom samples and an iPad — how cool is that?!

We missed our dear friend Emily Ley by mere minutes, but took a peek at her wedding album anyway. My favorite:

Our next stop was the Rifle Paper Co booth, which Trent was VERY excited for. It didn’t disappoint! We even got a sneak peek at part of their new wedding line, which looks beautiful!

There was a neat “runway” of paper dresses connecting the two halves of the tradeshow. Trent made me pose with one of the creations.

Once safely on the other side of the runway, we found ourselves at the Wiley Valentine booth. Cuteness overload!

One of our last stops of the day was the Ladies of Letterpress booth. We were running late at that point so we didn’t see everything, but we did stop by Anemone Letterpress’s section. Fun fact: her business card is letterpressed on incredibly thick stock!

Last but CERTAINLY not least we have the Smock + Bella Figura booth. It was as gorgeous as always! Bright and colorful, but edited beautifully. For a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of their booth, check out their blog here!

Thank you so much for following along, friends! You can bet I’ll be back next year, reporting on more paper goodness. Now tell me: are you as much as a paper fiend as I am? What’s your favorite line of stationery?

All photos by the fabulous and talented Trent Bailey. Thank you again, so much, for coming, Trent!

    I soo heart papers, too! :D I loved cutting and designing them when I was little and until now, I am just into paper crafts. :D What you have showed in here are pure awesomeness and just let me have a special mention on that one which says “Just a little note from me to you”. :D The blue-greenish one, particularly. :D It’s kinda vintage-y. :D
