This beautiful brunch wedding was so much fun! I mean, a cereal bar in addition to biscuits, gravy, and delicious hot coffee– what’s not to love? But perhaps my favorite element was the cinnamon roll wedding cake.

Paper Union Co.

I’m delighted to feature Stillwater’s very own stationer, Paper Union Co., in our latest Local Vendor Spotlight. Check out the interview with owner and designer Amanda Howerton below!

Tell us about Paper Union Co.

The Paper Union Co. was born out of a desire to see weddings and other special events be unified through their printed pieces from beginning to end. It is such a treat to receive a save the date, invitation, and day-of stationery that is beautiful, cohesive, and perfectly reflects the couple’s personality and tastes—and that’s what I want to design for every bride of mine. The name Paper Union comes from the fact that all of your paper pieces will be unified, and the word union is also a sweet reminder of the holy union of marriage.

What products & Services do you offer?

The Paper Union Co. provides wedding invitations and day-of stationery for the bride who wants a completely branded experience for her wedding. I work one-on-one with every bride to make sure her dreams become a reality—it’s as if she has her own personal designer for her wedding day. In order to achieve the goal that every wedding is a beautiful representation of the couple’s vision as well retains a cohesive look, every Paper Union bride receives the following: save the dates, invitations, RSVP cards, ceremony programs, menus, and thank you notes, and all necessary envelopes—with many additional add-ons available!

What is your specialty?

While the Paper Union will do branding for other events like baby showers and graduations, its specialty is definitely in providing pretty printed paper pieces (that’s a mouthful!) for weddings. Oh, and everything is custom! Paper Union don’t offer any pre-designed lines—so your wedding day designs will be 100% yours.

Do you have a favorite font? Color Combination?

Favorite font and color combination?! That’s a tough question! Our wedding was super colorful because I couldn’t settle on what were my favorite colors to use—haha! I DO love fresh, minty blues though… and bouncy scripty typefaces will always be my go-tos.

How far in advance of their wedding should couples contact you?

Really, it is never too early to get in touch with a stationer to discuss your wedding day dreams as we tend to book up in advance with the nature of our work. But as far as a time frame goes, you should be sending save-the dates roughly 6–10 months in advance of your wedding, so about a year out from your wedding would be a good time to sit down and discuss all of your ideas so your wedding celebration can be as cohesive as possible from start to finish.

Any tips for couples hoping to book with you?

Even though we don’t necessarily get booked for particular days (like a photographer would), the care that goes into your customized wedding designs takes a lot of time, so the Paper Union Co. doesn’t take too many concurrent projects. So get in touch sooner rather than later! Another tip is to dream big about ideas that you have for your goods—there are so many paper and printing options out there including metallic ink and foiling, not to mention diecuts and other specialty effects. The sky really is the limit! You don’t have to have everything laid out in your mind when you contact the Paper Union, but it helps to have your basic color palette and a general idea of the direction you want your wedding day designs to go.

Mod Fox Photobooth

Photobooth Stillwater OK

Who doesn’t love a little entertainment at a wedding? Thanks to Mod Fox Photobooth, Stillwater weddings just got more festive.

Tell us a little about Mod Fox

Photo booths in the last several years have become very popular and as wedding photographers we see a lot of photo booths at weddings. In this era of digital everything, there is something special now about walking away with a physical photo in your hand. If done right, they can be the life of the party but we kept seeing clunky booths, tacky prints, and cheap backdrops. We knew it could be done so much better. So we started Mod Fox Photobooth as a modern alternative. We had our booths built out of pro photo equipment. In fact, it’s not really even a booth. It’s an open-air design, using the latest technology. Our photo booth is open-air because we believe it’s more fun when everyone’s involved. We aim for a fun, high quality, and easy experience. It has a touch screen, prints instantly, and there’s a social media station on the side. Plus it looks clean and nice. When you see it, you’ll love it!

What types of products/services do you offer? 

We specialize in open-air photo booth rentals for events. You have the option to add-on a Keepsake Album which is a chic scrapbook containing a copy of each photo strip from the event. We also do custom Snapchat Geofilters. Clients can also have a wooden USB drive that contains all the photos of the event. For companies and organizations, with a photo booth rental we have ways to help with brand awareness, hashtag launching, and building client lists.

What comes with your photo booth?

All of our rentals come with unlimited prints and custom in-house designed photo strips. We have several beautiful sequin backdrops to choose from and we’ll bring lots of crazy props. We have a social media station so that you can instantly send the photos to yourself. It’s all fully managed by one of our super fun attendants. And all of the photos are available free to download and share. Everything is included for a ridiculously good time!

 

Other than weddings, what types of events do you cater to?

A photo booth rental is also great for graduation parties, birthdays, holiday parties, fundraisers, dances, and corporate events.

Any advice for couples looking to hire Mod Fox?

Photo booths are a great way to get photos of those people that tend to avoid cameras. Surprisingly even shy people will hop in front of the photo booth. The prints double as favors and keepsakes as well! We designed our booth to be stylish so that it fits in with any event. As photographers, we also made sure the quality of the photos and the prints were top notch. When researching photo booths find out what the setup looks like, examples of the end product, and what’s all included. We pride ourselves on our custom designs and personalizing each event while not charging extra for it. We try to keep everything as upfront and simple as possible. We don’t charge for travel to Oklahoma City, Tulsa, or any town in-between.
