Today’s wedding Wednesday post calls for this romantic and vintage wedding photographed by Elizabeth Messina. For the Save the Dates, guests received a simple postcard on weathered paper, but the romantic nature of the design definitely set the tone for the nature of the wedding weekend.
For the invitation suite, a copper tone is letterpressed on die cut cards. The simplicity kept the invitation formal but still in line with the bride’s vintage feel… We designed a wedding monogram that would be used throughout and it debuted on the invitations.
Wedding welcome bags featured an illustrated design of Charleston, with highlights of all of the weekend event locales. The weekend information booklet unfolded to reveal a flourished design.
It’s all in the details- sometimes just simple caligraphy signage can produce lovely details. For a bourbon bar, pretty handwritten tags formalize them, and the bride and bridesmaids receive their flowers in boxes with calligraphied tags.
At cocktail hour, paper drink tags are secured to the glasses with the monogrammed wax seal as seen on the invitations. Love this new use of the wax seal!
For the seating cards, vintage keys and brass tags were engraved with guests names and secured with pretty calligraphied table numbers.
These menu “plates” were so different than anything we have done before, and we loved how they turned out.. Coordinating with our brass tags, brass plates were engraved with the couple’s wedding monogram, and the dinner menus were threaded thru- and also doubled as the place card. Linen dinner napkins embroidered with the wedding monogram were used on the head table, and then cleaned and given to the couple afterwards for their new home.
Some of our favorite places the wedding monogramed was used at this wedding… A table runner for the cake table, a custom cornhole set for the lawn outside the tent, and embroidered pillows used in the late night lounge…
