navy and teal wedding

November 3, 2011

this summer, my sister's best friend got married.
they have been friends since high school
so it was really special to be a part of this day.

my sister and i created almost everything "paper" for the wedding.
i don't do many weddings because there is so much involved
and it's so much work to create 200-300 of everything!
but this bride and her mom were so appreciative
that it made everything worth it!
we were all so happy about how the vision came together.
i think it was the most beautiful wedding i have been to.
every detail was perfect!

..............


it all started with the invitation
 we created a bracket shaped enclosure which
were individually cut using the cricut.
 and wrapped it with wide navy grosgrain ribbon.
a custom made wax seal was the finishing touch.
the inside was a beautiful antique damask
print that my sister created.
isn't she amazing?!?!?
each piece was unique, but all coordinated.
beautiful fonts and details

...........


wedding details
 we created pocket programs for the reception.
they were so cute.  small, but still easy to read.
..........

escort cards
instead of numbers,
each table was named after a street in chicago
the tables were amazing!
we created the street signs and they looked great
with the dark silver tablecloths and beautiful flowers.

 each plate had a little succulent.  simple but so pretty!
the only snag we had was that the menus were misplaced...
they were supposed to be placed inside the napkin.

...........

"love is sweet"
candy bar!
candy labels

..........

other details

 we did not make this- it was ordered on etsy- but what a great keepsake!
***tree guestbook was purchased here***

how beautiful this wedding was,  i was so proud to be involved
in such a well planned event!
