WHAT COULD BE MORE EXCITING than starting the year with a feature in Green Wedding Shoes? Probably nothing. It doesn't hurt that this was, without a doubt, one of my favorite projects of 2017. I teamed up again with Jason Lloyd and Victoria Gold to execute a monochromatic winter wedding wonderland. While I love a good jewel toned wedding, winter weddings from January to March tend to fall outside of the featured design boards - no longer "holiday winter" and not quite "first blossom" of spring. Admittedly, these months can feel long and dreary but that only added to our excitement in creating a wedding for these months.
When Jason first described the vision he used the terms: modern, sleek, and monochromatic. Elated, I reached for the most modern, sleekest, and monochromatic material of them all - white, matte acrylic.
I really pushed myself to consider how to incorporate entirely white-on-white elements that would be cohesive and approachable, all while making an impact.
In addition to the laser cut acrylic invitation, a blind de-bossed tag with the couples' names ties together the invitation box. Because guests would not be able to RSVP on acyrlic, I used a reverse gesso technique on card stock to duplicate the pattern on the invitation while keeping everything white. And, perhaps the most exciting part of the suite was a clear acetate and white foil save the date. Stunning silver calligraphy by Willow and Wine completed the look.
A few of my other favorite details from the day included work-of-art cocktails by CaliCraft, a custom ceremony installation by Jason Lloyd, a textured cake by Nicole Bakes Cakes, and a funky neon sign by Neon Dive Bar.
