I’ve got lots of 2018 weddings still to share, but I knew Melissa + Andy’s romantic CT wedding had to be next on the blog! Their Longshore watercolor crest wedding featured one of my first semi-custom watercolor crests, and the amount of colors we incorporated made my heart so happy. If that weren’t enough, they were also an incredibly sweet couple!Melissa cared a lot about her wedding stationery, and wanted to incorporate her favorite colors: pink, orange/coral, and lots of green. She loved the look of the custom-painted watercolor crests, but the price tag was a little high for her. I noticed this had been a trend with some of my other brides, so I began to offer semi-custom watercolor crest packages. I used pre-painted elements, but still incorporate details custom to your wedding: colors, florals + icons. But more details to come on this new offering….As always, I incorporated elements of the crest into all the suite inserts, including what may be my favorite custom envelope liner ever! The perfect finishing touch was a soft green envelope liner with the monogram from their crest. The final product was a romantic wedding invitation suite that was perfect for a June celebration! Father + daughter moments always get me!I loved the soft blues of the bridesmaid dresses with the bright pops of pink + coral. It really was the perfect palette for the early summer weather + outdoor space of Longshore. We incorporated leaf elements into the simple flat escort card display. Escort card displays are still one of my favorite thing because it’s a functional part of your wedding that can also be an amazing decor element! Melissa + Andy, working with you was a dream! You were so sweet, and fully trusted me to bring your colorful vision to life. I am so excited for everything that’s to come for you two.
