Adria & Jim - 08.21.10

Adria and Jim came to me last year for their save the dates, their theme was dark purple and white, simple and elegant! Although I had never met them in person I was able to put together a Save the Date magnet design that they absolutely loved... the main star being a beautiful picture from their engagement shoot with Suzanne Collier Photography!

As we got closer to the big day they wanted to do their "Day Of" ensemble, as I like to call it, with a little more flair and design. Even though Adria still wanted to keep it on the simple and elegant side, I was able to come up with a design that fit right into the entire theme and feel of their wedding. Her flowers had lots of hydrangea in them... which is one of my favorite flowers to work with! HYDRANGEA I said! So we ran with it.... 

The first and foremost item was the program... Adria and I will laugh over it now, as it was quite the project! Check out their Full Catholic Mass bi-fold program with the hydrangea detail on the front (which carried over to the back where their thank you note was written). 

Next on the list was their menu that was placed at each place setting. We carried out the hydrangea theme with their monogram. The printing method we used was raised thermography purple ink on a crisp white 105# smooth cover stock.

Lastly, the escort cards!!! As you know, this is my favorite piece to design out of all of the "Day Of" ensemble pieces. I thought, let's give it a little more punch then having their design on white tented cards... lets add a purple tented backer!!! Adding a backer card is probably my favorite thing to do to just about anything. I feel it just finishes off the piece. We used a variable imprint method that printed each guest name on each card instead of having a blank line to hand write the names. I loved the way these turned out... to me it screams simple, elegant and hydrangea! Don't you think!?! 

Congratulations to the happy couple, Adria and Jim! It was a pleasure to work on their wedding stationery and I wish them nothing but happiness and love for years to come! Here's a peak of the fabulous Bride and Groom on their wedding day.
