Vintage Inspired Wedding Paper Goods – One of my favorite projects from 2012!
January 3, 2013
Remember those vintage inspired Rose & Peony watercolors swatches I was working on? Here’s how all the paper goods came together for Aimee & Scott’s Big Day. They had a clear vision for their event, pointed me in the right direction while also allowing for some creative freedom on my end, and were just all around wonderful people to work with.
We started with a custom pen & ink drawing of their wedding venue, the beautiful John S. Sell Chapel, for use on the exterior of their programs.
As a lovely gesture for their Veteran’s Day wedding, they paid tribute to a long list of veteran family members on the back cover. We customized the flag swag with watercolor washes for a cohesive look.
Next up, we used one of the floral swags across the top of their menu. The flowers were selected to match ones used for their centerpieces. We also made coordinating food cards to identify items for their cocktail hour, though I completely forgot to photograph them! oops!
Keeping with the vintage feel, they named their tables after Hollywood classics. We implemented the second floral swag on these table cards.
Guests were directed to their tables with coordinating escort cards.
Last, but not least, I designed favor tags utilizing the final peony swag.
Aside from working on my brother’s wedding, I think this was hands down my favorite wedding of 2012. Thanks Aimee & Scott!
