We are a woman owned and operated,

design and print studio specializing in

high style wedding stationery.


Kai Marin

Owner, Design Director

Kai is the graphic designer and brain behind the design.

While studying the art of hand painted signs at New Bohemia, her interest developed in stationery when she took a stab at designing her own wedding invitations.


After her wedding, she was featured on Green Wedding Shoes, Hello May and Festival Brides for her work and Gold Dust was born shortly after in 2019. Although her interest in event and aesthetic design is vast, focusing on stationery and day of paper allows her to help clients define their wedding style in a major way through the foundational details.

 Pairing her love of vintage aesthetic and age old art forms, Kai's designs have palpable style, a fresh aesthetic with a nod to the timeless. Working with unique clientele and companies has allowed her style to continue to develop and her aesthetic curation to strengthen. 


Project Manager, Design Assistant

Lia is a Northern California wedding photographer and our beloved design and print assistant. Although her heart remains in photography, her degree in graphic design and whip sharp organizational skills provides our shop with the expertise in proofing, printing and signing off on all the design details

Kai sends her way.


Every gal needs a right hand woman, and Lia is the best there is. If you work with Gold Dust, you will be spending a ton of time communicating, (mostly laughing) and receiving your perfectly printed and assembled goodies directly from Lia.

Did we mention how much we love her?!



We are Bay Area natives, boy mamas and cousins from one very big Italian family!
