When we first met with Mackenzie, Billy, their adorable brand-new puppy Buddy (who is now probably bigger than me!), and Mackenzie’s mom, we knew this was going to be a super fun wedding! Mackenzie loved whimsical scripts and chalkboard-style layouts, with shabby chic florals, heart-and-arrow motifs, and soft mint, peach, blush, and coral. We started by creating and mailing their photo save-the-date, using their gorgeous engagement photo by super-talented Best Photography, and then followed several months later with their wedding invitations.
Their wedding invitation used a custom presentation of a landscape-orientation folder in slate gray, with the invitation mounted on the front. We used layers of mint and custom pinstripes to add whimsy and depth, and created a custom heart-and-arrow monogram as part of their wedding branding that we used across their day-of papers, signage and even on the dessert buffet tags. Once the invitation folder was opened, a wide lace enclosure band affixed with a custom monogram plate contained their response enclosure, and an information panel was permanently attached to the inside of the folder. Since Mackenzie and Billy had two wedding ceremonies in which different guests were invited to each, we actually created and mailed two versions of the invitation – each containing unique wording for the ceremony, reception, and travel information.
The place-setting menus and other day-of papers were designed to reflect the style and motifs we used on Mackenzie and Billy’s wedding invitations. We enjoyed working with the RW Events styling team to create escort cards that could be strung along their vintage painted shutters. We love collaborating with amazing other wedding pros to achieve results as stunning as this escort card display!
Mackenzie and Billy’s Bella Collina wedding was super adorable and executed flawlessly by Blush by Brandee Gaar. RW Events incorporated some amazing vintage vignettes – one of our favorites being the lemonade stand. Lee James Floral Designs did a stunning job with the ceremony and reception florals – we especially love Mackenzie’s beautiful bouquet! Two Sweets Bake Shop created an incredible and extensive dessert buffet (including amazing and unparalled Krispy Kreme Bread Puddings).
We really enjoyed working with Mackenzie, Billy, and their families, and are so happy to have been part of their beautiful day. Thank you Mackenzie and Billy, and best wishes for an incredible life together!
