Recently I worked with Tara Francis Photography on a romantic + whimsical inspiration shoot. It was a fun opportunity to create an elegant invitation suite with soft watercolors, vintage stamps and calligraphy font treatments.

We are so excited to have this shoot featured on Style Me Pretty! You can see more of the images on their blog here.

This particular wedding is very special to me! Not only was I a bridesmaid, and had the pleasure of designing all of their wedding stationery, but Amanda is one of my best friends. It was such a wonderful day celebrating her marrying the man of her dreams!

The wedding took place at a beautiful venue in Bend, Oregon called Broken Top Club. It’s a very classic yet rustic venue with high ceilings and gorgeous exposed wood beams. This was the perfect place to host their rustic glam wedding!

For the invitations we went with a simple antler & monogram design with bronze, ivory and dark faux wood grain papers. The RSVP card was a playful mad lib where the guests filled in the blanks with clever responses. The wedding program was printed on kraft paper, opened in the front with a gate fold and tied together with a creamy white ribbon. Inside the program, the wedding party was laid out using silhouettes for an easy visual. Other details included, “get cozy” tags, stir sticks for the hot cocoa bar, stickers for their ribbon cones, and table numbers.

They had an incredible photographer {Erica Ann Photography} who captured the day perfectly and was kind enough to share these photographs with me. I hope you enjoy a peak inside this beautiful wedding =) To see more, hope over to Erica’s blog!
