Advice from a stationer - why I think it’s important to have engagement photos taken.
Cheryl and Thomas had a winter ski lodge wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado. Snowy mountains were the inspiration for this design paired with kraft paper envelopes and white brush calligraphy. Other day-of wedding items include a window seating chart, wooden welcome sign, personalized menus, a hand painted signature drinks sign, an itinerary and alternative table numbers.
In their hotel rooms, each guest received a welcome bag with an itinerary of the weekend's events along with activity ideas to check out in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Cheryl and Thomas decided to use the quote "Together is a beautiful place to be" along with their names and wedding date for their welcome sign. The quote was written in calligraphy and the whole design was engraved into the wood. They repurposed this welcome sign as wall art after their wedding and it is now a meaningful keepsake!
At the dinner reception, each guest had their name written at the top of their menu in navy watercolor calligraphy. The menu design included brush calligraphy and their wedding monogram at the bottom.
Cheryl and Thomas also had signature cocktails for their bar menu. I painted the bride and groom's cocktails in watercolor for the menu design.
The seating chart was created from an old window. Each guest's name was written in calligraphy on the window. Also, instead of table numbers, we used mountain names to identify the tables (Telluride, Aspen, Breckenridge, Keystone). We made a wooden engraved mountain sign for each table which mimic'd their wedding monogram.
