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!

We pride ourselves on being a lead wedding invitation designer in the Indianapolis area. We have been in the graphic design and custom invitation business for almost ten years, and still seem to get questions like these quite frequently...
 
Are you a print shop?
My cousin/aunt/bridesmaid "designed" some wedding items for me, can you just print them on your paper?
Can I send you an invitation design I created and have you print/cut them for us?
I made myself a monogram, could you use it on the designs you'll make for us?
 
How wonderful that you've already tackled the design of your wedding paper! However, our business revolves around our custom designs and process. It's what we're known for best. At this time, we do not accept out-of-house files or artwork. We reserve our production spots exclusively for clients who book us for full custom design services.
 
What you're looking for is a print and copy shop --> Some of the best local options are MinuteMan Press, PIP Printing, and Office Depot. They tend to have great turnaround times and pricing.
 
We appreciate the consideration!!

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. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
