Paper & Home ~ Vendor Spotlight
Your Stationary Suite is the first physical impression guests will get of your wedding. Every aspect of the design ~ beginning with the texture and the feel of the paper, the weight, color, typeset and more ~ come together to silently tell a part of your story, silently giving guests clues as to the experience to come.
And with that in mind, I have to ask: Why trust this all important detail to a digital website when there is a real, live couple ready to create a couture design and luxury wedding invitation for you and you alone?
Brooke and Michael Coxen are the owners of Paper & Home, a Las Vegas based upscale stationary design team based in Las Vegas, Nevada, and creating distinct designs for couples nation wide.
What I adore about Paper & Home (beyond their truly beautiful work) is their commitment to beauty, excellence, luxury, and each other. I say "each other" because this is a couple that understands first hand the ideals of love, respect, compromise and dedication. Having lived through the wedding planning process themselves, they display of their clients, expertly pulling out the smallest nuances and using them as a platform from which they can design the perfect package.
When working with Brooke & Michael, you will begin with a consultation questionnaire designed to help them get to know you and your intended as a couple. As your style, inspiration, and creative platform emerge, Brooke will naturally know where to guide you in terms of date cards and luxury stationary pieces, many of which feature letterpress, gold leaving, and other luxe details.
Styles and motifs, proposals and proofs are sent back and forth. Up to 5 rounds of complimentary proofs are included with your order, and it takes the average couple between 3 - 6 weeks to finalize their design. The suite goes into production in the finest factories spanning New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, taking an additional 3 - 6 weeks to arrive. Digital calligraphy, hand crafted addressing, stuffing, and additional items such as menu cards, place cards, escort cards, and thank you notes are also available through this full service firm.
On a personal note ~ one of the most unique items that they offer, and the one which I personally covet the most, is the boxed invitation. Available to only the most discerning couples, paper, typeset, and tactile elements (such as stone, wood, photographs, and more) are careful packaged in a box that is then shipped to your guests as a gift within itself! Guaranteed to become a keepsake to all those who receive one, you may elect to send boxed invitations to your entire guest list, or simply to an elite group of guests.

PS ~ If they sound familiar and you just can't seem to place the name, it could be that you saw them in Luxury Magazine, or on CBS Channel 8 News Now. Or, for my avid readers, you may remember them for the amazing work they contributed to my Tuscan Romance installation during the Muses of Matrimony event at The Bellagio Resort and Casino!
