All of this crazy weather back and forth lately has us craving beach weather, so this was the perfect wedding to share today. This wedding took place on Kiawah Island off the coast of Charleston, SC, and many design elements working together… Much of the inspiration was taken from the bride’s favorite painting, and several complimentary patterns were created to work with it.. We also created a custom monogram out of the couple first name initials, which worked with another emblem that was a calligraphied version of their first names together. We hope you enjoy seeing everything we did, and we thank Liz Banfield for all of the images.
The first glimpse guests received was in the luxurious save the date… We loved the teal envelopes lined with the painting pattern and calligraphied in fresh white ink… The super thick cards were backed with one of the other patterns in a metallic gold. And, the flourishy names looked lovely atop a letterpress floral pattern.
This invitation suite really had it all and brought in all of the design elements without being busy… Die cut edges on the letterpressed invitations were painted a gold and backed in the painting pattern from the save the date envelope liners. Inner envelopes were replaced by belly bands with a metallic version of the monogram, and the complimentary pattern was seen again in both the envelope liner and reply cards. And of course, custom stamps from Zazzle.com just for fun!
Weekend guests received a beach bag full of amenities perfect for the weekend- local reading material, custom printed koozies and water bottles, an Refresh and Revive kit, and goodies in the wedding color palette famous in the bride’s hometown and new treats from her current hometown. Of course a custom tag completes the look… The weekend information booklet for this one was in line with the paper designs but offset printed for a more cost effective route.
Ceremony programs had the same die cut edges as the invitations and were also edge painted in a lovely metallic gold…the teal color just worked so well with the letterpress… really pretty.
Little details here and there included gold hand lettered tags for each of the personal flowers, and the bride’s bouquet ribbon embroidered with the couple’s custom monogram.
And, of course, cocktail hour wouldn’t be complete with all of the special details- custom printed cocktail napkins, matchbooks on the bars, and tray liners for the passing trays in multiple patterns from the invitation suite.
We did go a little bit of the traditional route with the escort cards… Each card was enclosed in an envelope and sealed with a custom monogramed wax seal.. But, the wedding designer (Tara Guerard) displayed them in boxes of fresh blooms so that they didn’t appear basic in any way…
The Monograms took center stage throughout the dinner design… Custom embroidered chair covers for the Bride and Groom with their respective initials.. And it made for a nice little detail on the cake table… The Menus were printed on gold metallic paper, and the table numbers were gold metal pieces painted with white numbers… dreamy!
A showstopper bar in the after dinner lounge featured our painting pattern printed en masse on fabric used to cover the front.. Spoonflower is a great resource if you have your own pattern you want to get printed.
This couple’s custom favors were some of our recent favorites… Local Rewined candles were given with our custom printed matches and sweet tags calligraphied for a custom touch.
We supplied one of our custom patterned papers to be made into cones for the rose petal toss at the couple’s send off at the end of the night.
As a special surprise for the couple, a hint of shine was given to the Just Married sign by adding a layer of golden glitter…
