This gorgeous lake side wedding took place on Lake Koronis in Minnesota. The bride's inspiration was water color (and a soft color scheme), which perfectly reflected the scenery. Custom embellishments for the wedding day included welcome booklets, table numbers, menus, programs and seating chart.
Julianne & Ryan
Who doesn't love burlap and lace? This stylish bride paired that combo with pops of coral throughout. The custom wedding stationery was balanced between traditional and a little whimsy with bunting embellishments and kraft paper envelopes. We carried the look throughout her day-of paper items including darling 'tag shaped' escort cards, sweet table numbers each titled with a definition of components of a successful marriage (i.e.: Acceptance, Laughter, Loyalty) and finally a super fun mad lib with advice for the bride & groom.
Emily & Mark
Winter weddings are so romantic. This one was set at the Four Seasons Resort in Whistler, British Columbia in Canada. The bride took a cue from the venue itself, opting for wood grain patterns and earthy color scheme. While the event was black tie optional, the couple definitely didn't want it to feel 'stuffy'. They incorporated fun touches like Cuban Cigars and the couple's favorite treats (Snickers and Kit Kats!) We created favor tags for the wood coasters the groom hand made for each guest, signage for all the fun things to do and little marriage advise cards tucked into each custom ceremony program. However nothing could outshine the first impression- the custom save the date in a chocolate colored box with satin ribbon.
Shannon & Tom
When you are asked by a wedding planner to design her own wedding stationery- first, it's the biggest honor because most planners know everyone in town and second, you know it's going to be impeccably designed. That was the case when Shannon Lassen of Seattle based Sublime Events wed her beau Tom Craig. I absolutely LOVE Shannon's style and couldn't wait to dive into her ideas. She didn't miss a beat with the details and to this day it's still one of my most favorite designs. The dreamy color scheme (blush and taupe paired with ivory) is so elegant and timeless. The day-of paper goods included a custom "newspaper" style program, menus at each place setting and 'sweet' tags for the incredible dessert table.
Lindsey & Michael
Inspired by a logo the bride's best friend had created for her big day, the vision for Lindsey Nelson's wedding stationery was formed. Birds and branches and a fall color scheme of tobacco, wine and soft rose. The invitation was elaborate, complete with pocket fold, envelope liners and custom envelope printing. Day of items included menu napkin wraps, lots of signage (bar menu/restroom signs) and an equally elaborate itinerary for the guest's hotel rooms which included a map and lots of shopping, activities and restaurant ideas for out of town guests. Lindsey didn't miss one single detail and wanted each guest to feel welcome and special in her home town.
Cathe & Rob
This would be a dream for so many brides- getting married in a CASTLE. In Scotland. Well that was the dream come true for Catherine Brito and her fiancé Robert Smith. The groom and his groomsmen wore kilts which we incorprated the specific pattern from on the wedding invitation. With the wedding being a destination for all, the pocket fold invitation kept all the details (itinerary, things to bring) neatly organized. Though the destination and castle were quite regal, the couple opted for a more playful design with brighter colors (kelly green and navy) a light-hearted tone to the wording and for fun- a lochness monster. We replaced traditional tented place cards with a luggage tag design and table 'names' named after different countries the well-traveled couple had visited.
Lara & Greg
Lara Hodel and Greg Harrington opted very intimate wedding in Maine at the Newagen Seaside Inn with only close family and a few friends. The beachy setting set the tone for the stationery- long grass, seashells and white with tones of blue for the colors. The couple wanted a simple invitation that could hold a lot of information (itinerary, accommodations, weather/attire and "don't forget" list) We created a program-style invitation which gave us tons of room to design with but also still felt special as wedding stationery should. It became one piece the guests could travel without the hassle of lots of cards. Coordinating wedding day paper items included an 'itinerary in a bottle', table numbers that had pictures of famous places on Maine and darling escort cards tied to individual starfish by the couple's wedding planner Erin Lindeman of Lindeman Events.
