{Real Wedding} Mackenzie & Eric's Rustic Country Wedding in Colorado

Just a very quick post today!  I wanted to share a few photos of the paper goods from a really amazing wedding!  I had the pleasure of designing and creating the “winter-country-rustic” invitations and paper goods for Mackenzie and Eric, who were married in Colorado in January.  Their photography, Suzanna March Photography, was so kind to send me photographs she took of their paper goods.  But you also really, really need to see the whole wedding on Suzanna’s website here.  Theirs was a tremendously unique and personal wedding!

Here we go:

To create these paper goods, I actually worked not only with Mackenzie, but with her mom.  They told me the focus would be a little bit country, a little bit rustic.  They were planning to incorporate red buffalo plaid, “kraft” brown, and evergreens into the wedding, so I kept that in mind as I created the paper goods.  We ended up with a booklet-style wedding invitation with hand-sewn binding.  The light brown woodgrain cover of the invitation was letterpressed with “M&E” – the couple’s monogram.  The pages inside contained whimsical images of a snow-covered cabin in the mountains, evergreen trees, cowboy boots, and skis.  Since the wedding was being held in Golden, Colorado, Mackenzie also wanted to feature the archway sign to the city, so we included that, too!

For the ceremony and reception accessories, we continued using the same motifs – red buffalo plaid, cowboy boots, and evergreen trees, printed on speckled creamy white papers with kraft brown accents peeking out.  The escort cards used motifs to indicate each guest’s entree selection, which added lots of color, fun, and interest.

Again, I insist that you go here to see the whole story of Mackenzie and Eric’s wedding!

Thank you, Mackenzie and Eric, for letting me be a small part of your big day!
