Picture a golden, summer day with busy honey bees buzzing under sun-dappled, shady trees. Our custom-designed invitations and wedding papers were featured in this gorgeous photo shoot by Amalie Orrange on Wedding Chicks.
For this styled shoot, we designed and created the honey bee invitations, place-setting menus, escort cards, favor tags, and biscuit bar cards. We used a honeycomb pattern as a geometric theme throughout the escort cards, invitation suite, and menu holders.
A graceful script on the escort cards was printed in bright turquoise to match the baby’s breath-filled, vintage bottles that hang from the trees. The same font on the invitations and menus is honey gold. We used bumblebee artwork to adorn the escort cards, menus, and the lining of the invitation envelopes exclusively for this project. Our invitation suite was printed on cream and kraft stock with a honeycomb border with a custom envelope liner that repeats the honeycomb pattern.
Instead of a dessert bar, this shoot featured a biscuit bar with a variety of honeys in vintage jars and decanters, and heart-shaped, freshly-baked biscuits. The favors — mason jars filled with honey — were stored in an authentic pie safe, and featured our round, kraft brown tags, tied on with twine. Quoting Victor Hugo, the inscription on the favor tags reads: “Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
The shabby chic furniture gathered by RW Events resonated with the rustic, vintage theme. The models were dressed in 1930s style to recreate the more relaxed atmosphere of a bygone era. The amber bands around the cake, and the gem-like quality of the honey and real honeycomb on the biscuit bar lent a richness to the rustic surroundings.
We are so pleased to have been included in this inspirational shoot, and hope that it gives you ideas for your own wedding!
