Last June we participated in an amazing photo shoot for Seacoast Weddings Magazine. Curated by florist and event planner extraordinaire, Kate Parker, eight teams pulled together a wedding style shoot based on a particular color theme. Each team consisted of a florist/planner, photographer, pastry chef, and invitation designer. The magazine is online and in newsstands now.
Albertine Press designed and printed invitations, menus and escort cards for three of the teams and I want to share both our spreads as well as some of my favorite images that didn't make the magazine.
Team Orange used a vibrant, circular floral motif throughout, accented gorgeously in gold. I can't believe how perfectly all of the various elements came together, like the gold floral place mats which meshed so beautifully with Erin's cake appliqué and the block print pattern on the envelope liners. All of the decorative flowers on the cake are edible as well as stunning!
For the invitations and escort cards we harked back to a floral motif we created for our 2011 calendar, which just fit perfectly. We'd never used it for an invitation before but I'm excited to offer it to brides in the future.
Friends and family may recognize names in the escort cards - I had to generate a full guest list of names for the wedding and dug deep into my memory (classmates from kindergarten, folks who work down the hall, studio members, friends).
