wedding weekend recap

Aimee and Caylum are married!

Want to see some pics? There are a lot, and they’re not great because I was busy enjoying the party, but we don’t judge. right? First off, it was such a treat – and by far the most involved I’ve been in a wedding from start to end (besides mine). I appreciate that they let a rookie* take over the design and some of the planning.

First up, at the beginning of the year the initial print items were developed, including the invite, RSVP postcard and information card. Aimee sent me an inspiration board on Pinterest and we talked about fonts and colours that best matched their taste but also complimented the venue, which was a pavilion at a vineyard in the valley.Design-1Once the invites were sent out, more pieces were developed for the wedding day including signs, the seating chart, a guest card and a mad libs to keep the guests entertained. The table numbers were attached to corks and labels were put on the wine bottles for each table.Design-2 Design-3As mentioned, the wedding took place at a vineyard and the weather was hot, sunny and there was a full moon at night. The Bride was smart to suggest making the programme a fan – the guests certainly appreciated the gesture although I am sure her assembly crew (aka bridesmaids) did not enjoy all of the cutting and hole punching.DSC_0133 DSC_0143

The day before the wedding, we arrived on site at lunch and started putting the space together. There were already strings of white lights up but everything else was brought in and the girls made the bouquets, boutonnieres and table arrangements on site. Tim, the tulle man spent the day on the ladder while the tables were set and most everything was put out.DSC_0111DSC_0119 DSC_0115 DSC_0112DSC_0116DSC_0129And here is the room coming together. DSC_0117 DSC_0120 DSC_0122DSC_0148 DSC_0147 DSC_0150 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4DSC_0127DSC_0132Because the floor was cobblestone, the couple provided flip flops for dancing. DSC_0124A special bouquet and candle were put on display for Aimee’s mother. DSC_0123On the morning of the wedding, a few finishing touches were done outside while the music was tested and the wine was poured. DSC_0134 DSC_0136 DSC_0142Finally, the Bride arrived (on time!) and the wedding began. DSC_0151 DSC_0158Once the ceremony and dinner were over, me my lovely friends (and team) and I took a few photos.DSC_0174 photo 1photo 22 photo 44Sparkles were lit when the sun went down.DSC_0227 DSC_0232 DSC_0234 DSC_0236And the tables moved to the side for dancing.
