Sometimes, you meet with a couple (or have a lovely phone chat with them, in this case), and you just instantly click with them. You understand their vision right away and you just know it’s going to be a good fit - and that’s exactly how we felt about Kate and Zane. They are a super thoughtful couple, who you can tell put a lot of that thought into just exactly how they wanted their day to play out.
Their planner, the amazing Emily Ventura or Emily Ventura Designs helped to make sure that all of their visions worked seamlessly to bring to life the most elegant, chic and whimsical garden wedding you could imagine!
We started their design process with their semi- custom save the dates - which were based on a similar design, and we changed up their colors, fonts, and added a photo to really personalize them and tailor them for their wedding.
A few months after their save the dates went out, we got to work on their blush and rich purple, floral watercolor, vellum wrapped invitation suite. We just love how each piece comes together to create a total package!
While we are admittedly obsessed with all things pretty paper, we have to admit, we get SUPER excited about several of the other elements that a couple chooses as well, like - THE DRESS. And when we say the dress - this one, seriously is JAW DROPPING.
We also get really excited about the flowers - we’re suckers for amazing textures, colors, and fun additions!
And then… there’s THE FOOD. Cake, appetizers, the main dish - yes please, we love it all! Kate and Zane kept it summery, fresh and a feast for the eyes as well.
Let’s talk reception stationery - there are so, so many things we are asked to create, but honestly - these little hexagon escort cards are some of our absolute favorites! They are adorable, and can be used in so many ways, like on top of boxes of macarons!
So now that we’ve established that they were beautiful, thoughtful and have incredible taste, can we also say that they know how to let loose and have a good time too? Custom Corn Hole boards anyone? How cool!!!
Man - to be a fly on the wall on this day! Want to see more? We know we do!!!
