Copper Wedding Inspiration

Copper Wedding Inspiration

This week I am sharing copper wedding inspiration, one of the hottest metallics right now! Copper weddings have been popping up quite a bit, and have been such a fresh of breath air in the color world. Brides are still crazy for metallic, but some are looking to do something a little more modern than the traditional gold or silver. Ever since I finished up the invitations for my last wedding of 2016 (which also happens to be with a bride who is a dear friend!), I’ve been feeling the urge to design with copper even more. Copper has a special way of translating to so many different types of weddings: rustic, modern, glamorous….it works on so many levels! My favorite is seeing it paired with greenery, whether that means adorned on a metallic cake or in vases for centerpieces. It’s a bold + exciting trend for 2017 + 2018 weddings!

Scroll below for some shots of our bride’s copper paper story + some delicious metal inspiration.

Watercolor Crest CT Garden Museum Wedding

Watercolor Wedding Crest Connecticut Garden Wedding

Today I am sharing Catherine + Michael’s watercolor crest wedding at Hill-Stead Museum in Connecticut, and this one is a stunner!

We worked with the talented Lemontree Calligraphy to create their custom watercolor wedding crest, featuring two tigers representing their high school mascot. (One is sleeping because the bride loves to sleep in while the groom is an early riser; I just love learning these fun details about my couples!)

Their palette featured fresh blues + greens, perfect for an outdoor summer tented garden wedding. We kept their paper story classic + elegant since the team at Sixpence For Your Shoe Events created a gorgeous look, including beautiful linens, greenery chandeliers and floral table runners inside the reception tent.

My favorite paper detail was the escort card boards. These custom watercolor cards created a beautiful reception entrance moment for guests to enjoy.

Justin & Mary Photography was on hand to capture all their custom wedding stationery, including their crest menus, programs, table numbers, and guest hotel boxes! Scroll down for all the swoon-worthy shots.
