Rachel & Adam’s Rustic, Cheerful Summer Wedding
The wedding of Rachel and Adam, held last June at the The Barns at Wesleyan Hills, was fun, rustic and super cheerful. Designed by Jubilee Events and photographed by Carla Ten Eyck, the event featured an abundance of different textures and pops of sunny yellow. Right out of the gate, Rachael wanted to give her quests a glimpse of what was to come. To achieve this, we created wooden Save The Dates with Rachael and Adam’s initials “carved” into the surface. When their wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty late last year, Rachel said “The Save The Dates are one of our favorite touches that really allowed us to bring the country/rustic feeling throughout the whole wedding by giving us the wood heart to play with.” And we did just that! The carved heart became a custom tag that adorned their invitation and later, at their reception, was tied to favor boxes of chocolate covered Oreos. Even the cupcakes by A Little Imagination Cakes featured piped icing initials and hearts!
Lace was another element that was woven through many aspects of their wedding with Rachel’s gorgeous lace gown serving as the inspiration. Once again, the stationery helped set the stage. The invitation suite, printed on Ecru Crane’s Lettra to pick up the warmth of the yellow in their wedding palette, had a layered belly band of Kraft paper and lace. Gold and ivory twine wrapped around the band, securing a wooden heart and a wooden website tag. At their ceremony, an antique lace cloth hung from the chuppah and strips of lace trimming adorned each napkin. Feminine, soft and textural, it was the perfect compliment to the rustic design. And the textures didn’t stop there! The wedding programs were booklets with stitched linen covers. Each one was stamped with a custom design to further personalize them. The text inside explained each of the Jewish wedding traditions so that guests understood all the elements of the ceremony. The menus, printed on unique wood grain paper, brought the stationery suite full circle.
In addition to being featured on Style Me Pretty, Rachael and Adam’s wedding graces the pages of Bliss Celebrations newest edition.
