Audrey & Daniel’s Modern Botanical Invite

img_1477

From day one it seems Audrey (my now sister in law!) had the perfect vision for what her wedding day would be. The setting, the colors, the style – her idea was clear.  Meticulous planning, a keen eye for detail and her impeccable taste made that vision a reality when she married Daniel  on a beautiful day in September. Audrey and Daniel’s (who most people know as “Grub”) wedding was dreamy, elegant, fun, and so uniquely them.

Audrey is immensely talented and I admire so much her creativity and personal style. Collaborating with her on this invitation was a dream in part because her idea was so refined. I chose a simple, all text invitation. It’s elegance is in it’s minimalism. We printed on a beautiful, heavy, cotton paper with a soft texture. The luxe paper elevated the simple design.

The special “moment” of this invitation is definitely the vellum overlay. The rose illustration nods to the natural, botanical theme of the wedding and adds interest. The barely there names are a delicate and magical touch. I incorporated the floral graphic into the ceremony and luncheon insert to tie the theme of the entire suite together.

Thank you Audrey & Grub for including me in your beautiful day. I’m lucky to have such crazy talented family members who are a ton of fun to work with.

If you’ve been following along you may have noticed this has been a big year for weddings in my family – 3 siblings just this year! I still have one more to post and I’m excited to share it.

Two of Us – Vintage Travel themed Wedding

Today is my 5 year anniversary so I thought it would be fun to post a few details from my wedding. It had been a while since I looked through my photos and the first thing I noticed is how short the shelf life is on wedding trends. It’s only been five years but my pics (okay, and my hair) are looking a little dated.

Freezing cold Utah December morning. From what I hear anyway. I was so pumped on adrenaline I didn’t feel a thing. An old gentlemen in the temple kept insisting I put on this faux fur capelet they had on hand to keep warm. I declined.

Upon arrival at the reception guests wrote well wishes on vintage style postcards I created complete with old stamps and postmarks. Centerpieces were a collection of books, cameras, and globes. The flower arrangements were displayed in vases wrapped in old maps .

And this is where we really spent the dollar bills – the food. A ginormous spread of authentic Italian antipasti and fresh Gelato.

The real show stopper though, and honestly the only thing most people remember from our wedding, was the Dunford Doughnut’s wedding “cake”. Why have cake when you can have a delicious, moist, chocolate doughnut instead? No Brainer.
