This wedding printing is just too pretty not to share, between the letterpress wood grain paper, the Oak tree emblem (a copy of the tree the couple would marry under), and the custom wedding monogram, this is the perfect ensemble not only for wedding Wednesday but for Valentine’s Day as well!
The couple really wanted a way to incorporate their two Australian Shepherds somehow into the wedding, so we thought the save the dates would a great way. We had a photo shoot with them in a local park using a chalkboard we could change wording on when needed. Backed the image with balsam paper and created a custom patterned envelope liner. We love how this translated into a sophisticated but fun save the date for guests which truly reflected the couple’s personality.
For the more formal wedding invitations, the Oak tree emblem was the design element to shine on a custom wood grain booklet. The invitation itself had a deckled edge as a nod to the natural element of the location. The reply envelope was also doted with the Oak tree emblem, and the suite was finished off with a monogramed wax seal. Elizabeth Jones’ provided the lovely calligraphy strokes.
For the canvas beach bag welcome gifts, several varying patterns that would also be seen in the wedding design were used on the custom packaging. A special touch was custom designed Charleston postcard pre stamped and addressed for guests to sign well wishes and then mail to the couple in lieu of a guest booklet. And, not to forget the wooden paper element, custom printed wooden tags were used.
As a nod to the typically formal wedding ceremony, but taking liberties with this one taking place outdoors under an ancient Oak tree, miniature wood grain booklets were letterpressed with the couple’s custom monogram.
There were many other personal touches used in small ways throughout the wedding design… Here, for cocktail hour Lowcountry Lemonade is served in bottles with custom printed stickers.
The dinner set up was spectacular. Since this was an early spring wedding with a natural color palette, velvet bound menu booklets (from Velvet Raptor) in varying shades received custom copper name plates for place cards. Table numbers were hand painted agate slices.
This had to be one of our (as well as guests’) favorite elements from this wedding. Remember the photo shoot with the couple’s dogs? Well, with custom take home cake “doggie bags” they made an appearance at the wedding.
Other personal touches were seen on cocktail napkins- served with the late night food of passed sliders and a hot dog cart, as well as with the tray liners serving dance floor milk shakes.
And, for the send off, of course we had to do something spectacular for the sparklers… Sparklers were served up to guests in wood grain and letterpressed sparkler sleeves and custom oak tree printed lighters.
Congratulations to this “just married” couple! Thank you to Liz Banfield for all of the lovely imagery.
