This suite right here.
From the moment I began talking with Heather I immediately felt a sense of calm, laid back, and just—cool. She had a vision for the mood of her suite that I don’t get to design very often, which made working on this project all the more exciting. Planned by the incredible Sarah Rhodes-Boyce, Every detail of Heather and Michael’s wedding was designed with a modern, seductive, and passionate twist. A word that keeps coming to mind when describing their suite (and the entire wedding) is sultry. Attractive in a way that suggests a passionate nature.
What I loved most about working on the different pieces of the suite was blending multiple textures and colors while keeping the aesthetic as a whole minimal and sleek. The digital gold on the ox blood paper was the perfect moody backdrop for the vellum information card. With a touch of blush accent envelopes and their sandy gold RSVP cards, the suite was tied together with the ox blood suede wrap.
Who says beach weddings are just for warmer weather? With blankets and scarves ready for guests, this ceremony was a cozy and intimate gathering reminiscent of end-of-the-summer bonfires and cool strolls in the sand. With the isle beautifully laid with Persian rugs and lined with gorgeous arrangements by Sweetwater Floral, Sarah truly outdid herself bringing Heather and Michael’s stunning vision to life.
Along with Heather and Michael’s suite, we we also fortunate enough to work on their day-of wedding pieces as well. Everything from the Bar and Food menus, to escort and place cards, we kept the minimal and sultry aesthetic all the way through.
One of our favorite pieces to work on were the escort cards, which Sarah had brilliantly envisioned being printed on a handful of colors and weighed down with a variety of hand plucked beach stones. We drew from different parts of the color palette and added in some complimentary colors, to create a subtly unique escort display.
Now as I look out of our studio window into a flurry of white, Heather and Michael’s wedding photos have me inspired to experiment with richer colors this year, no matter the season!
Wishing you a cozy winter leading into an inspiring spring.
