Snug Harbor Farm Inspiration Shoot: the paper details

This past spring, we had the privilege of working with a seriously talented group of wedding vendors on a chic, lush inspiration photo shoot. (You can check out photos of the whole shoot on The Classic Bride blog and on The Sweetest Occasion blog) Kate, from Beautiful Days, charged us with coming up with an inspired, magical stationery suite for her topiary, Asian-style infused vision.

We pulled out all the stops to come up with a chic, sophisticated suite that reflected the magical, verdant feel of the shoot. We paired flowing script with graphic, geometric patterns and sweet birdcage details on one side with flowing, repeating words of love and adoration on the the other side. We duplexed the two pieces together with a shimmering gold layer between them for a multi-faceted, ornate invitation. Deep, rich black, moss-y green and sparkling gold gave the suite a sophisticated edge. We then pulled it all together with the ever-perfect calligraphy of Ms. Jenna Hein of Love, Jenna Calligraphy. White calligraphy on dark envelopes totally makes us swoon!

Light-as-feather escort cards direct guests to their seats and a gold-backed menu sets the tone for this chic dinner party

We also created fabulous Wish Cards for guests to leave a message for the happy couple. Imagine having 100+ sweet notes from your friends and family to read throughout your new life together? Love!!
