Taylor and Nathan are the sweetest couple, and it was such a joy to work with them on their wedding stationery. Nathan was one of the few grooms I've had that attended nearly every stationery meeting. It was so fun to watch them look over the paper samples together and discuss which would go best with their venue, attire, and floral choices. At our first meeting, one of the existing suites in my portfolio caught their eye and we worked together to make it their own.
One of my favorite parts of this suite is the custom watercolor style map that incorporated significant locations from three different cities to paint a picture of the couple's love story for their guests.
Lawrence, Kansas was where they met and had their first date. She said yes at a romantic proposal at Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. The ceremony took place at Park Cities Baptist, followed by a reception at Brookhaven Country Club. They even included a part of the groom's family history in Houston, Texas.
The wedding's accent metal was gold, so the gold leaf backing of the invitation was the perfect complement...it even matched the bride's shoes!
This dual-sided menu and thank you note provided a particularly thoughtful touch to the place settings at the reception. The bride and groom personally signed each of the 200 cards just below a custom typography block thank you message. The menu for the plated meal was found on the back of each card that was tucked into the napkin and placed on a gold charger.
The custom table numbers hinted at the travel theme through the use of a map watermark and provided the finishing touch to the romantic greenery and candle centerpieces.
