Bespoke Wedding Stationery | Wedding Calligraphy | Staunton, Virginia
Gold foil + letterpress + all the greenery means this wedding and their custom stationery *might* just be one of my all time favorites! As Katie + Elliott’s 1st anniversary is fast approaching (HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Y”ALL!) I thought it might be time for me to stop hoarding all their beautiful images to myself and actually share their wedding love story!
I’m pretty sure I got goosebumps the first time Katie and I talked! I had serious love for her wedding inspiration, a romantic, vintage-bohemian-chic outdoor wedding with a color palette of off white, wine, greenery and gold. Katie + Elliott really wanted their wedding to be an intimate and family oriented affair that made their guests feel loved. I love that Katie + Elliott embraced that a wedding is not just about two people getting married but two families becoming one, it’s about honoring your most loved and dear friends and family for making the journey to support you as you commit yourselves to each other. Every detail was purposefully thought through and Katie + Elliott truly honored each of their guests.
Katie is just epically stunning!
How sweet are these two reading each others letters?!
Katie + Elliott’s custom bespoke save the date set the stage for their stunning wedding! Vintage botanical illustrations on soft cotton paper with hand torn deckled edges were the perfect introduction for their guests to their wedding.
Their incredible bespoke wedding stationery suite centered around the double thick letterpress and gold foil invitation with wine edge paint. The invitation was paired with a green letterpress reply card, a vintage botanical illustration liner in the most perfect green envelope with gold calligraphy and hand applied gold leaf edging. They invited every guest to after dinner drinks, such a sweet gesture for all their guests, so we included an insert card printed in wine colored ink to let their guests know.
I seriously cried when I saw they had a framed invitation in the room while they got ready!
For their day of stationery we featured hand torn deckled edges, gold calligraphy and hand applied gold leaf.
THIS TREE IS EVERYTHING! Katie shared her inspiration for this tree draped in florals as the backdrop for their ceremony and I was so excited to see how it turned out! I just love this tree SO MUCH!
Just look at how happy they are! THIS is why I love working in weddings! It’s all about the love y’all!
These bridesmaids just slayed!!!
Katie’s bouquet is so gorgeous! And that flower crown!
I know, again with the trees, but LOOK AT THESE ESCORT CARDS! Hand torn deckled edge escort cards written in gold ink pinned to a tree, it couldn’t be better if you tried!
Katie incorporated lots of greenery and her reception was lush with garden vibes!
Each place setting was set with these vintage botanical menus atop a gold charger and aubergine napkins.
The first dance, such a beautiful moment!
Sorry I couldn’t help but feature my two new favorite trees again!
The head table was long wooden farmhouse tables with a lush greenery garland runner down the center and each seat had a place card with gold calligraphy and hand applied gold leaf. I spy with my little eye the new *Mrs. Wilson*!
Katie + Elliott’s tent was lit with the most magical floral hanging chandeliers one ever did see!
And let’s not forget the cake! Lush florals, drippy goodness and the gold leaf are perfection!
Gorgeous mountain view at Gaie Lea do not disappoint!
Look at those two walking into forever!
Happy first anniversary Katie + Elliott! I loved every minute working with y’all! Your wedding was absolutely perfect and am so excited to be sharing your beautiful wedding!
