REAL WEDDINGS: JENNIFER + WILLIAM

Today Jennifer and William celebrate their first anniversary! Congratulations guys!

From my very first meeting with Jennifer and her mom, Barbara, I knew we were going to create some fabulous designs. Jennifer's vision was unique and modern and adventurous. When discussing her save the date she used the word "vintage" and wanted to emphasize that this is a destination wedding but not in any typical way. From there I began to think about the idea of long distance loves and a stack love letters wrapped in twine and hidden under the floor boards....no sooner than the words were out of my mouth Jennifer was ready to go and suggested we write the save the date in the form of a letter. One of her favorite images is a skull, not a skull and crossbones, so we incorporated that in the form of a wax sea.

Jennifer and Billy celebrated their wedding in Turks and Caicos at The Regent Palms surrounded by family and friends. Jennifer's hair and Jewelry was absolutely stunning and perfect for the setting. Her shoes were Alexander McQueen adorned with a metal skull, I died over these. We created a canvas welcome bag screen printed with the skull for all of the guests.

Jennifer and William's wedding invitation suite was inspired by a soft blush hue she loved and when I created the ombre design I had the idea of the inside of shell in my mind, the outside of the shell is mimicked by the grey envelope.  We tied the invite with a white cotton twine to harken back to the save the date and hold all of the accessory cards creating a neat and thoughtful presentation when opening the envelope.

Jennifer found skull place card holders which couldn't have been more appropriate for the cards I created. The menu card holds all of the guests dinner options and on the other side was printed with a message of gratitude from the bride and groom. 

And a coordinating thank you note rounds out this fabulous celebration! Jennifer and her mom Barbara were a dream to work with and I was truly honored to be such a big part of all of the special events surrounding Jennifer and William's wedding.
