Our Wedding: Flowers!

Let me begin by saying I truly could not be more in love with how the florals at our wedding turned out.  Yes,  am "that girl" who thinks that neutrals are the most beautiful colors in the world, and wanted to show off my love for them in a fun and beautiful way. I definitely think we succeeded!! To lots of people, neutral flowers may sound boring or blah, but personally I think they turned out to be beyond gorgeous. All of our florals were through our wedding planner at A Charleston Bride where they do all the florals in house.
My Bouquet

The flowers of my bouquet were the first example of our florals I saw all day and I fell in love instantly!  To make my bouquet extra special and personal, we had lace from my mother's wedding dress and my mother's rosary wrapped around the stems.

For the overall decor, we layered different textures, sizes, heights, and shapes to create a vibrant space. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a wonderful Thursday!

Our Wedding: Paper!

Today's post marks the first in a series about Our Wedding!! For those of you who don't know, I got married in January of this year on Kiawah Island SC. It was the best day of our lives and I'm really excited to finally share some of the little details of it with you. Throughout the entire planning process, we worked so closely with our incredible wedding planner Haley at A Charleston Bride, so I have to give tons of credit for the wonderful design work and execution to her and the ladies there for every single detail!!

Wedding printed materials were one of the design elements we were most excited about.  My mom has always told me that the invitation sets the tone for a wedding, and I couldn't agree more. After all,  it is usually the first insight your guests get into the style/formality/mood of the event.

We used Studio R Design for all of our paper materials, and I couldn't have loved them more!! (Other than the Save the Dates which we ordered through Minted). The ladies there designed our custom logo and used it on many of our printed materials as well.

It was important to me to have a formal invitation to reflect our formal wedding, so we opted for extra thick paper, the traditional separate reception card apart from the invitation, and response card, all in gold and ivory. The envelope liner we used was a robins egg blue.

Welcome Bags

In our welcome bags, we included a custom golf ball, cheese zingers, two cookies, and custom logo water bottle with jute tote bag. I loved how they turned out!!

I hope you enjoyed this first post about our wedding! Stay tuned for more to come and let me know if you have any questions about vendors we used, the process of picking things out, or anything you'd like to see or hear about :)
