Last September, two of my favourite people got married. The wedding was seriously so much fun, and Stephanie thought through every little detail, to make the day memorable for her guests, and for her and her new husband Josh. Thankfully, she and Josh let me be part of their day, in more ways that one! Not only was I their calligrapher/everything-paper-designer, but I got to be a bridesmaid too! It was so much fun, since my husband Josh was a groomsman.
Stephanie and Josh chose a stunning colour palette. I mean, look at those deep green dresses! The boys looked soooo handsome in their suits, but I was pumped on our dresses. I thought we were all total babes. But honestly, Steph stole the show. We pulled that deep green into her invites, and added little bit of Stephanie signature (polka dots and gold!) and she let me bring in my own ideas to the pieces (watercolour washes!). Below are the invitation suites I created, under Steph's watchful eye. She has a great eye for design, so I didn't mind any of her input at all.
Alongside the invitation, Stephanie asked me to create some wedding signage to be used throughout the day. She had curated the perfect Pinterest board, and pulled different ideas of little quotes she's loved, and directed me to create these pieces, which look stunning in the vintage gold frames she had.
The menu that Josh and Stephanie picked out was DELICIOUS. I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at what we were going to be served while I was making the menu for everyone's seats. I also created a little card which dictated the rules to follow in order to get the couple to kiss (I sang Kiss the Girl, from the Little Mermaid, accompanied by the cutest little girls). I really enjoyed the touch of donating money in lieu of favours to organizations that were close to both Josh and Stephanie's hearts. I think that favours are sometimes so useless, and this option is so much more meaningful.
It was such a pleasure creating this whole suite for Stephanie and Josh. It was even more of a pleasure getting to be there in person, and see it all put to use! I'm so glad that these two are married, and I am fortunate to call them my friends. They are both so special to me, and I can't wait for many more years of friendship to come!
