I am a huge fan of a Rustic Chic Wedding and have been waiting to blog about Jaclyn & Nates since I was first brought on board by event planner Jen Hansen of Gracious Events Management to design the table numbers, seating chart and signage. Thanks to Alison Taylor Photography I have some really stunning photographs of my work but there is no way I can do a blog about this wedding and only show my part. This wedding was EXCEPTIONAL and involved multiple creative individuals who all came together in their own way to make Jaclyn and Nates vision a reality.
I want to first begin with the table numbers in most cases they are usually folded or put in a clip but for this wedding real horseshoes where purchased off of ebay and the father of the bride created a wooden stand to hold the horseshoe. I then designed a 2 layer flat number card with a chocolate brown backer accented by a white linen card. All the table numbers were printed using a rodeo style font then hand embellished with hot pink glitter and attached to the horseshoe. The couple had a sweetheart table so I created a different sign using the boot designed by Nate and added each of their initials also hand embellished with hot pink glitter. On the back of the Bride and Grooms chairs were signs that read "Mr" and "Mrs" both were hand embellished with hot pink glitter and hung with hot pink satin ribbon.
The table linens were a mix of hot pink and white with either a hot pink or chocolate napkin therefore when I designed the menu card I used a single white linen card stock that continued the use of the same fonts from the rest of the signage and combined hot pink and chocolate ink. Each napkin was folded so the menu could be inserted into it which really gives each table an added design element.
I want to thank Alison Taylor Photography again for allowing me to use all of her photos in my blog, having professional photography of your work truly makes a difference. As you know I LOVE to share so if you have any questions about this wedding you can contact event planner Jen Hanson of Gracious Events Management . All the flower arrangements are the work of Gregory Costa-Saint John owner of Flouer. The couples cake was designed by Hilary Larson of Eat Cake in Newburyport and the wedding was held at The Smith Barn in Peabody.
