About A Soolip Wedding
Soolip organically metamorphosed from its origin as an enchanting paper boutique in West Hollywood to an established lifestyle brand. Founder Wanda Wen's signature discerning taste and her vision to create a stylish gathering of all things beautiful for one of life's most inspirational moments – the wedding – gave birth to A Soolip Wedding in 1999. This annual celebration presents a distinctive and well-edited collection of personally-selected resources for the discriminating modern bride seeking a wedding reflective of Soolip's contemporary and refined aesthetic. With the innovative artistry of each year's unique collection of partners, A Soolip Wedding elevates the art of getting married to an extraordinary and inspired affair in itself and has become every modern bride's must-attend event before the big event. Previous partners have included Monique Lhuillier, Harry Winston, Smashbox Cosmetics, Wolfgang Puck, Christofle, Kate Somerville, St. Regis, La Perla, Bacara Resort & Spa, Frette, Tiffany & Co., Williams Sonoma, Badgley Mischka, Heath Ceramics, Carolina Herrera and Jo Malone.
Founded 17 years ago as a sanctuary of paper and handmade treasures in an artful corner of Los Angeles, celebrated stationer Soolip has become synonymous with an inspired way of life. With the passionate and tasteful guidance of founder Wanda Wen, Soolip celebrates the simple wonders of nature and its inherent beauty in paper arts and other objects of design touched by hand and heart. Ms. Wen's eponymous lifestyle brand (Soolip is her middle name, also meaning "one's life destiny is to seek wisdom" in Chinese) features the Soolip Paperie & Press retail store in West Hollywood offering handmade cards and fine papers, ribbons and writing accoutrements, the Soolip custom letterpress design studio, Soolip's acclaimed A Soolip Wedding annual modern bridal event in Los Angeles and now in San Francisco, and a signature line of letterpress greeting cards, personalized stationery, customized corporate collateral, and wedding and special occasion invitations. A noted tastemaker and creative visionary, Ms. Wen's hardcover tome The Art of Gift Wrapping (Potter Craft/Random House), a visually tantalizing, inspiring and resourceful how-to on the art of gift wrapping, debuted in April 2010.
