Gold, Ivory and Blush Pink tones were the perfect backdrop for Emily & Ryan's wedding day in Dayton, Ohio. They had a specific vision for their wedding color palette, then enlisted my help to translate that into a classic & elegant wedding invitation suite. They gave me free design reign and were open to ideas - music to my ears!
See below for the finished product!
We printed their invitation cards and inserts on Soft Ivory cotton cardstock, with flat printing in Antique Gold matte ink. We stacked all of the cards and bundled them in a Blush Pink matte paper band, then placed them inside a semi-translucent Vellum gatefold card. The vellum card was held closed by a custom botanical patterned Rose Gold wax seal. The couple requested just a touch more color to be incorporated into their invitation - we opted for a Blush Pink matte monogrammed liner inside of their mailing envelope. We love the finished look!
The couple and their wedding party strolled around Dayton for pre-wedding photos. Their classic and elegant wedding style was ever apparent in their attire, both for the couple and their wedding party. Sherwood Florist provided the most elegant bouquets and boutonnieres to compliment their wedding attire.
The wedding day started with a full mass Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Minster, Ohio. The church is set in the same small town that Emily's parents reside in. The church is beautiful and ornate, inside and out.
The couple wanted to make sure the guests stayed full informed throughout the full mass wedding ceremony. They worked with us to create custom wedding ceremony program booklets. The booklet cards featured a Blush Pink shimmer cardstock cover and a Soft Ivory satin ribbon bow along the binding. The inside pages provided guests with the ceremony order of events, wedding party details, directions and information about the wedding reception, an "In Loving Memory" section, and a special note to guests from the Bride & Groom.
Guests later arrived at Grande Hall at Liberty Tower for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. The wedding celebration was perfectly decorated from floor to ceiling - with Sherwood Florist creating intricate florals at the tables, as well as around the cocktail and lounge areas. Not to mention, the abundance of candelight enhanced the romantic vibes throughout.
The Grande Hall at Liberty Tower is a fairly new venue in the Dayton wedding scene. With it's almost 100-year history, the venue offers a Setback Art Deco architecture style in both it's interior and exterior. This beautiful space features marble floors, handcrafted woodworking, and soaring 30-foot tall vaulted ceilings. The Grande Hall is a perfect blend of historic elegance and modern amenities. Not to mention, this grand space can host up to 300 guests at a seated reception!
FUN FACT: Did you know The Grande Hall was also the Movie Set for Robert Redford’s “The Old Man & The Gun”?
Yes! You read that right - The Grande Hall was transformed for this classic movie, based on the true story of Forrest Tucker - a career criminal who escaped prison 18 times, The movie stars Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Sissy Spacek, Tika Sumpter and Tom Waits. "The Old Man & The Gun" filmed throughout the space, including the main hall, bank vault, balcony and all along West Second Street.
Each plate was accented with a Blush Pink satin napkin, with a custom menu card tucked underneath. The cards featured Blush Pink shimmer place cards attached at the top by a delicate Gold metal brad. The menu cards themselves were each customized with the guest's pre-selected entree details. Emily & Ryan's wedding day was seamlessly planned, organized and executed to perfection by Laura at Simply Events LLC.
Emily and Ryan both have ties to Washington D.C. through their employment. The couple chose to forego table numbers, and instead named their tables after significant D.C. landmarks. We printed the table names on the clear acrylic cards, and displayed them in gold harp stanchions. We were especially careful not to make them over 7" tall. This was to ensure they complimented (and did not compete with) the lovely centerpieces and other tabletop decor.
Guests found their table assignments on these custom clear acrylic seating chart signs, which were displayed tabletop in custom wood bases. We continued the use of Emily & Ryan's custom wedding monogram throughout their seating charts (and menus, table signs, and programs) to ensure a cohesiveness throughout their wedding day paperie.
My signature wedding stationery design style can easily be described as classic, elegant, and timeless. When Emily & Ryan came to me with their wedding vision and custom stationery request, I knew right away we were going to work together well! I loved their personal style & wedding vision, and had so much fun creating all of their custom wedding invitations and day-of paperie elements. This will forever be one of my favorites. Congrats to the newlyweds!
