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.

Summer Connecticut Blush and Grey Wadsworth Mansion Wedding

Courtney’s + Matt’s blush + grey Wadsworth Mansion wedding is featured on Every Last Detail today! I am thrilled to finally share all the elegant black tie wedding details with you all.

Courtney fell in love with The Rowayton Suite from The Rosy Collection (one of my faves, too!) so we created her wedding paper story around this look. We printed on luxe cotton stock and carried through the look to her day-of paper, including tented menu table signs (a great detail with the long tables they had) and grey escort cards to greet guests as they entered the reception. The team at Jubilee Events designed a gorgeous affair, including glamorous chandelier lighting from Ryan Designs. I loved the touches of gold, especially the wooden table numbers! Scroll down to immerse yourself in all the pretty details, courtesy of Brigham & Co. Photography.

Colorful CT Summer Lakeside Wedding

Molly + James’ colorful Connecticut lakeside wedding was one for the books! Most of their guests were coming from out of state, so they hosted a full weekend of celebration for everyone in coastal Connecticut. This meant a lot of information to communicate to them, which presented an interesting challenge. I wanted to avoid having it feel busy and too focused on content vs. design, so we decided to use icons and color-coding to help organize all the details. (Fortunately they had a bright + extensive color palette for their wedding, which included coral, greens, navy and gold.) Each event had a symbol and color as shown on the card, then the bride’s sister hand-drew a map with the icons showing the location of all the events. We kept the invitation card itself classic with a custom-designed crest, and added a note of glamour with their initials in gold foil. There was no way to open this suite and not get a big smile on your face!

The icons and crest were then used throughout the wedding paper story, including custom coasters, napkins, drink stirrers, and plenty of signage!

Stacie Shea Events executed a gorgeous lakeside affair, and Vicki + Erik were on hand to capture every last beautiful detail! Scroll down to see all the pretty from their big day. (Man, it was hard to narrow down which photos to share!)

Vintage Lace Purple Connecticut Wedding

Melissa + Jordan’s vintage lavender + lace Hartford, CT wedding was truly one of a kind! Their paper story started with their custom wedding invitation suite, which incorporated a custom lavender lace pattern and a real lace belly band. There were also vintage key details throughout their stationery, including actual ones tied to calligraphed escort card tags that hung on a vintage door! My favorite detail was the vintage typewriter that held up a sign directing guests to their guest book. I love when couples incorporate creative details like that! Scroll down for all the pretty details executed by the spectacular William Parkinson Events and captured by Jenny Naima Photography!

RW: Lizzy + Jay @ Westchester Country Club

Today I’m delighted to finally share Lizzy + Jay’s gold foil black tie wedding at The Westchester Country Club! I worked with sweet Lizzy and her delightful mom on their entire wedding paper story, which was elegant, classic, and luxurious with touches of gold foil, navy and black. The main inspiration was a monogram that was classic but not stuffy, and was gold foil stamped on the invitations and menu cards. The couple used it on their cake and even had it printed as a pattern on the groom’s bow tie! Scroll down for their full paper story and gorgeous event (with escort cards from Belles Lettres Calligraphy), coordinated by Lyndsey Hamilton Events + captured by Craig Paulson Photography.
