Yesterday was the monthly Perfect Wedding Guide Networking Luncheon, held at the always gorgeous wedding barn at Mustard Seed Gardens in Noblesville.
 
 
With their picture perfect barn and it’s beautiful chandeliers, along with it’s serene tree-lined farmland setting, Mustard Seed Gardens has the perfect venue for a fall wedding (or networking event, in this case). They were so gracious to offer to host the event for local wedding professionals to network & dine together.
 
 
 
Bethany at Mustard Seed Gardens has an incredible eye for style, as she spearheaded the planning and preparation for the event. I always enjoy working with her, she has the best ideas! She selected birchwood farm tables with a natural finish, along with a few cashmere velvet covered round tables to fill the space. Chrissy from Special Occasions provided the most darling bud vases and simple florals, mixed amongst gold mercury glass votive holders, which were a beautiful pairing with this event’s modern rustic style.
 
 
 
 
 
We can’t forget to mention all of the place setting details, where A Classic Party Rental brought their A game (per usual!). Each guest’s place setting featured clear plates and gold metallic silverware. Atop the clear plate rested a cashmere colored napkins to correspond with the round table linens.
 
 
Interprintations sponsored the stationery for the event, with custom laser cut menu cards polishing off each place setting. I knew that I wanted to provide something less main stream and a little more custom, since these paper elements would be seen by so many of my peers. I know they would appreciate these intricate and high-end menu cards the most! Our favorite design element is the ornate detailing around the menu, which is accented by the laser cut shape.
 
 
 
Interprintations also provided the miscellaneous event signage enjoyed by guests – a perfect addition to dress up the bar area, champagne wall, and dessert table. It was an honor to provide this pretty paperie to brighten and inspire our wedding professional colleagues’ day!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Stewart Imagery was so kind to offer her time and talents to photograph the event. I always enjoy seeing her work, and this time around did not disappoint. Not to mention, she turned around the photo gallery to all of the sponsors within less than a day! What a nice surprise to receive these in my inbox so quickly. Thanks so much to Stewart Imagery for capturing all of the event details so beautifully.
 
Last, but certainly not least, was the (from what I've heard) delicious appetizers, lunch and desserts provided by Mills Catering. They're a catering staple in the Indianapolis wedding industry and have been around for years. They have a reputation for great reason - their food is just so scrumptious!
 
I have to say, I am SO sad I had to miss this incredible outing with my fellow Indianapolis wedding professionals. While I had purchased a ticket to the event, my childcare arrangements fell through & I ultimately wasn’t able to attend. I was so bummed! I had been looking forward to this one for a while. This “momprenuer” small business owner doesn’t get out much for adult interaction (or an adult beverage) very often…these networking events are always such a nice break for those of us with small businesses in the wedding industry.  A big thank you to Tammy at Perfect Wedding Guide for coordinating these events, and I look forward to making it to the next one at Daniel’s Vineyard!

If you are considering a wedding color palette of Blush Pink, Ivory and Gold, you absolutely cannot go wrong. It’s a gorgeous wedding color scheme! This soft blend of wedding colors is incredibly romantic and perfect for a big city wedding.

Today we’re sharing a few recaps of Sarah & Eric’s wedding day, one of our 2018 couples. Their wedding took place on a sunny Fall day in Indianapolis. The wedding day began with a beautiful full mass Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church, followed by a cocktail hour and dinner reception at The Conrad in downtown Indianapolis.

This captivating and special day was pulled together seamlessly by our favorite Indianapolis / Carmel wedding planner team at Boldly Chic Events. Their impeccable style and wedding planning experience is unmatched in the Indianapolis area.

As you scroll through the photos, we also have to give big props to one of our favorite Indianapolis florists – Isibeal Studio! Isn’t Autumn at Isibeal Studio so talented?? Sarah’s bouquet, the sweet little boutonnieres, and the wedding reception table centerpieces are all incredible works of floral art!

For the bride and groom’s nuptials, we designed a folded ceremony program booklet in shimmery blush pink cardstock, in addition to gold foil ink printing on the cover. Inside, the program included four pages of text, allowing the couple to communicate to guests all of the details involved in their full mass wedding ceremony. This also allowed for many other details, including the wedding party names, reception details, and a note from the newlyweds. To finish off the ceremony booklet’s elegant look, a lush ivory satin ribbon held the folded booklet card together.

Once there ceremony finished, guests made their way to downtown Indianapolis, where the evening began with a cocktail hour at The Conrad. Guests enjoyed delicious cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and delectable cake pops from Vanilla Bean Bakery. The wedding cake pops also doubled as escort cards, as they each held a custom die cut tag, personalized with each guest’s name and table number assignment.

Guests then made their way into The Conrad’s ballroom for an evening of dinner and dancing. Upon entering The Conrad’s grand ballroom (a stunning event space in itself), Sarah and Eric’s wedding guests were wowed by the beautiful tablescape designs – a collaboration of Isibeal Studio and the Boldly Chic Events wedding planning team.

Guests then dined on a duet plate of stuffed chicken breast and bourbon maple braised short ribs, alongside garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus and carrots. The in-house catering at The Conrad is always on point!

When guests arrived at their assigned tables, each place setting had a custom die cut menu card tucked into their napkins. Each elegant menu card featured the couple’s custom monogram, thin border detail, and elegant fonts to coordinate with their other wedding stationery pieces – all printed on a thick and luxurious metallic Ivory cardstock.

Another fun detail that the couple incorporated into their wedding reception was their love for Jack’s Donuts! For an after-dinner snack, the couple created a donut bar, complete with a variety of iced and glazed donuts, floral accents by Isibeal Studio, a calligraphy sign created by Painted Letter Co, and small  printed signs designed by Interprintations.

The wedding cake was also a lovely addition to the wedding reception décor itself, as this edible work of art mimicked the brides dress ruffles and the couple’s overall soft, romantic wedding style. The cake was designed and created by the talented baking team at Classic Cakes.

We always enjoy Beth El Zedeck's annual Table Settings event - it's a lovely way for local event planners, florists and designers to showcase their talents. This year, the planners at Boldly Chic Events requested some of our laser cut designs and paperie to accent their mid-century table setup.
 
Here are a few photo recaps of this super fun table design collaboration!

For our design contribution, we created hunter green laser cut placemats, a wooden table number with a retro pattern background, laser cut name cards and custom menu cards. We absolutely love how the Boldly Chic Events team pulled all of these design elements together!

Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones.
