You’re Cordially Invited: Hannah & Dusty

This couple is so special to me. I have grown up knowing Hannah as part of our small church family. I was so excited to meet Dusty… then find out they were tying the knot! They decided to have their wedding at her parents’ home, where their house is overlooking a pond! I love when brides incorporate water into their big days… probably because I’m a water lover! Water is also very tranquil and calming, which can be great for an event, that may have stressful moments!

They set the date for May 5th… and prayed for nice weather! With scattered storms in the forecast for the whole weekend, after a Saturday morning downpour, it cleared and was sunny for the rest of the day!

I created some pieces for their day, including Invitation, Programs, Signs for the candy bar, and Directional Signs.

I knew they were using blues, including royal and navy. They also wanted to include their picture on the Invitation, which I think guests love receiving! And knowing  that the wedding was going to be overlooking the pond, nautical stripes kept coming into my thoughts.

Here is what we came up with for the Invitation…

I also made RSVP Postcards for guests to send back for them to get a count of guests attending.

When it got closer to the wedding day, Hannah told me they had incorporated hot pink into the color scheme and were using pink Gerber daisies in the decorations. So I decided to incorporate the color and the daisies into their wedding programs.

And here are some images from their day.

They had a Candy Bar that I made the “Love is Sweet” sign as well as tags for all the containers.

I also made this “Welcome” bunting banner to hang at the Welcome tent, where guests dropped off gifts, picked up a program and bottle of water, and left a note on the Wishing Tree.

Their centerpieces included a cluster of framed photos, collected glasses filled with gerber daisies, baby’s breath and blue carnations, and candles that were lit as the sun started setting. Chair sashes were used as table runners to incorporate the navy onto the white tablecloths.

As it started to get dark, they lit these painted blue mason jars that were hanging in some of the trees. What a great touch!

Wishing Hannah and Dusty the best as the enter into their new lives as husband and wife! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
