What better time to show you this romantic fall wedding than the week of Valentines Day?! Take a peek at Tessa & Alex's sweet and dreamy October wedding in Frankfort Michigan. Truly, nothing screams love in Michigan more than a fall wedding filled with the perfect mix of warm foliage, cool lakeside hues, and modern accents. Our custom day-of stationery added the perfect mix of casual formality to their special day. Is casual formality a thing? If not, I think Tessa and Alex invented it. (Add that to your mood boards wedding planners! ) But seriously, we can't get enough of these two! They are such genuine and humorous love birds, and are absolutely fairytale worthy! From the seating chart to the menus, each custom detail paired perfectly with the warm and classic feel of this romantic October wedding.
Adding a custom Welcome sign is the perfect way to greet guests to your special day when you can't physically be there for everyones arrival. You can add a personal touch and keep on theme with the details.
The Frankfort Oliver Art Center was the perfect venue space to capture and portray the casual formality of Tessa and Alex's wedding The art provided a dreamy backdrop during both the ceremony and the reception and added a touch of modernity to the day.
See what we mean by warm foliage and cool lakeside vibes? We cant get over the moody feels that the deep reds bring out of their chic color scheme. We also need to bring up the fact that nothing beats a groom in a bowtie. Alex pulled it off perfectly.
The florals paired with chiavari chairs, tall taper candles and a clean, folded napkin with the custom menus tucked in only solidified the classic yet modern romantic feel. And the vintage-inspired cloches and tea lights juxtapose the modern flatware and artwork perfectly.
When Tessa and Alex went with the classic simplicity of kraft paper with white calligraphy for their stationary, we knew it was a match made in heaven. It's impossible to not fall in love with the simple yet crisp look this brings to any style wedding. Kraft paper, will you be our valentine?!
We absolutely love when our clients include little personal touches into their stationery designs too... if you look very closely you can see the custom illustrations of Tessa & Alex's cats peeking out on their wedding programs. Too much fun!
One of our favorite things to do when looking through our clients wedding photos is to watch the love and vows transition into celebration! These signature drinks displayed on hand-painted wood slabs really got the party started. (Oh and we'll take one of each cocktail, please.)
Working in the wedding industry is seriously the best, we feel so lucky to be a part of it all. Have a very happy Valentines day everybody, and we hope you enjoyed seeing some of our favorite snippets of this sweet and romantic wedding.
A huge thank you to The Weber Photographers for the beautiful photos of Tessa and Alex's October wedding day.
