Last month, I had the privilege of participating in The Big Fake Wedding, New England. The challenge was to design a romantic fête with deep plum and gold accents, while creating a whimsical, wild and magical evening! Challenge accepted!
I designed the wedding invitation suite, using 240# cover stock. The edges and border were embellished with gold leaf (hand painted). The burgundy envelope liner was lined with a sapphire textured liner and coated with a layer of gold leaf. The invitation itself has a "water color" effect, which is actually a stretched flower ;) Tricked ya! The whole suite was bundled together with a green felt ribbon. This suite was truly a texture lovers dream!
The night was a perfect blend of gorgeous flowers, a dreamy cake, and of course the beautiful couple and their family! If you're not familiar with "The Big Fake Wedding", they base the evening around a real couple who are renewing their vows, which absolutely makes this event so special!
Below are a few of my favorite shots by the super talented Catherine Threlkeld Photography,
The combination of florals with bits of gold accents, the stunning lace wedding gown and gorgeously flowing bridesmaids' dresses, mixed with the setting and wonderful people, truly made for a wonderful evening full of love and happiness!
