Spark Letterpress began in Minneapolis 10 years ago, but owner Valerie Carlson moved out of state to grow the business with the help of friends and family. Spark is now carried by more than 125 retailers nationwide, but Carlson was ready to be back in the city. Spark has returned to Minnesota, with a pretty new showroom and print shop in Northeast Minneapolis.

While I love seeing what new color trends each year holds (marsala is still going strong) there is just something about a classic color palette that brings so much class to a wedding celebration. Sara and Rod's black-clad bridal party is hard to beat, and offers so many styling options. My favorite aspect of this event is the consistency in styling and design. The bold patterns and color accents are represented throughout every inch of decor, from the invitation suite to the bride's reception shoes, the table linens and the cake too!
