Smock travels to Virginia!

Recently we sent Kyle, our lead client coordinator, and Mariel, our lead graphic designer, down to Virginia for a trunk show with our friends at The Dandelion Patch in Vienna, Virginia. Here’s a look at their beautiful shop before guests started arriving for the event!

While they were in town for the event, Kyle and Mariel stopped in to see some of our other Smock dealers — including The Dandelion Patch in Georgetown! We spotted a few cute Smock customizations in their window display.

During their stop in Georgetown, Kyle and Mariel also paid a visit to our friends at Hitched. Specializing in both gowns and stationery, Hitched had some darling displays featuring their favorite Smock and Bella Figura invitations. And how cute is that window installation!?

During their trip, Kyle and Mariel made time to see Toni at The Write Image, too. Toni’s home studio boasts many albums, including every Smock album and several from Bella Figura!

We always love seeing real weddings from our customers! Alice and Dan worked with The Dandelion Patch to create their custom Haddington wedding invitations, which we printed in black ink on our white bamboo paper and paired with our popular pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners. They even ordered custom pink rose stamps to match! Their beautiful wedding took place at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a beautiful venue along the banks of the Chesapeake. Here are a few of our favorite photos, but be sure to check out Southern Weddings to see the rest of the images from their big day!
