As a designer, one of my favorite parts of being in the bridal industry is getting the chance to sit down and listen to each couple’s vision for their day. When months, or years of planning come to fruition in just a few short hours, the details really count!
I had the opportunity to work with both Andrea and Matt a few years ago for a publishing company in the Des Moines area. Little did I know that one day I would be a part of planning their wedding celebration.
The custom wedding stationery designs I created for Andrea and Matt included an elegant script typeface and solid black printing. Each piece was printed on a thick pearlescent cover stock. It was a perfect touch of shimmer for this elegant event! Programs, direction cards, menu cards, place cards and a thank you sign were designed and coordinated with the couple’s personal style.
‘Modern Elegance’ is how I would describe the style and overall design for Andrea and Matt’s day. The two tied the knot at a ceremony at Lutheran Church of Hope and partied under glowing lanterns at Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines.
Glen Oaks is not only a gorgeous venue by day, but a beautiful scene at night. The ballroom included large round tables with crisp, white linens.
Tables were decorated with beautiful white flowers, silky pewter table runners, white-striped napkins, simple candle votives and mirrored glass. Menu cards, backed with black cover stock were tucked inside of the napkins and each place setting included a place card.
Best wishes to Andrea and Matt. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your celebration. You deserve nothing but the best!
I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Tiffany at Tiffany Murphy Photography for providing such beautiful images for me to showcase on my blog. Tiffany is new to the bridal scene in Des Moines. Stop over to her facebook page and tell her Amy from AJCreative sent you!
