Holly and Geoff are a fun couple with romantic sensibilities. When I first met with Holly for our invitation design consultation, she told me about her vision for her wedding – romantic and soft, with vintage and glam touches. Many months later, their wedding perfectly fit that description. Holly and Geoff had a beautiful ceremony under the Spanish moss-covered trees at Up the Creek Farms. Planned by “I Do” Weddings by Kristen and photographed by Henk Prinsloo Photography, their wedding had plenty of pretty details spanning from the southern feel and open rafters of the Boathouse, rustic touches from vintage furniture and findings, and glam delivered by various metallics and glitter, including sequined table runners. The color palette for the day was blush pink, ivory, and brown. Textures included lace, pearl, sequins, raw woods, and an itty, itty, itty bit of burlap. We used this romantic range of colors and textures as a jumping-off point when designing their custom invitations and paper goods.
We created their custom wedding invitation in a pouch style. The pouch was created in a shimmery soft pink and used a wide cream lace wrap, blush satin ribbon, and a die-cut nameplate adorned with pearls. The invitation was printed with a vintage patina to give the look of aged paper and layered onto blush. All of the enclosures were tucked conveniently behind the invitation in the pouch ensemble before being mailed. We addressed their pink envelopes in a matching handwriting-style font in dark brown.
At the wedding, guests could follow along with the ceremony while cooling themselves with our custom fan programs. Holly and Geoff chose die-cut fan programs, printed on blush pink in dark brown. We carried their floral artwork throughout their day-of papers. We also created die-cut table numbers with a vintage patina for the reception, the couple’s sweetheart table sign, and tent-style escort cards. The coordinating paper goods helped give the wedding a cohesive look from start to finish. Custom day-of papers are the perfect marriage of function and aesthetics.
The rest of the decor captured the balance between romantic vintage and glamorous styles. Buds Etc. Floral Studio created classic-looking arrangements of pink roses, white hydrangea, and baby’s breath which were tempered by the sparkle of the gold charger plates and sequined table runners from Crystal and Crates. Crystal and Crates even supplied a vintage truck for some amazing photo opps!
