Handmade guest books at Oblation

The one item that sends brides racing through the doors of Oblation Papers & Press the day before the big event is the guestbook. Ah yes, yet another detail to remember but we think it’s a rather important one. Luckily, Oblation offers great options for planners and procrastinators alike.

Oblation has created a line of hand-bound guestbooks covered with luxurious bookcloth filled with either their handmade cotton paper or 100% recycled paper pages. If you don’t find exactly what you envision, set up an appointment with Oblation’s resident bookbinders, Molly or Michelle. These creative gals can create a custom book from the bookcloth, paper and ribbon that you select in the store.

Asscher cut diamond engagement ring at Judith Arnell

The “Asscher cut diamond” was developed in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland. It is a stepped square cut, often called the “square emerald cut” and like an emerald cut, the Asscher has cropped corners.

This lovely ring is an Asscher cut diamond engagement ring from the Ritani “Endless Love” Collection at Judith Arnell Jewelers.

If you are planning a stylish and sustainable wedding, you’ll love the natural beauty products available at FEZ Studio.

Hamadi products are made with 100% organic essential oils and plant extracts. There are no artificial ingredients, perfumes or colors. It is as biodegradable as it is luxurious—100%!
