We created a pretty fab "Tennessee" invitation last year for the Economic Department so when they called us again this year for a new one we had to put on our thinking caps. The party centered around a whiskey tasting so we created this watercolor glass and tri-star ball of ice getting poured on. The invitation printed on thick card stock with a fun backer design and calligraphy by Val Cole.
These photos really speak for themselves… but a few notes. We created a watercolor for the invitation in these muted gray and earth tones. Then we carried that watercolor over into all the day of pieces like. Even the cake was molded after our design. Sara Fried created such a dreamy, Tuscan affair that made guests double take they were still in Nashville. What was normally a big blank event space turned right on into Tuscany! Gorgeous flowers everywhere, olive branches draping, hand-painting slabs of Calcutta marble signage, twinkly garden lights, a tasting menu adorned with silver leaf, and incredible music. It all made for an incredible evening.

There is just something extraordinarily special about getting married at home. It's a space filled with family memories that welcomes in the bright future ahead. Florence & Cooper celebrated their wedding nuptials at her grandmother's home. A grand space filled with character and Southern hospitality, and a space that has been truly loved by the family. The couple put their own touches on the evening to make it feel true to them while blending in both families. Florence's mother, Libby Page, wedding planner extraordinaer, made sure the evening went off without a hitch! We loved being a part if it all. See more on StyleBlueprints feature.

To see more leading up to this wedding look back at our work on the engagement party.
SO excited to share this post. It was an incredible collaboration between some of the best minds out there and we worked so hard as a team to bring these designs to life. The bride and her mother came to us with magnolia dreams and we did our best to make them come true! See this suite featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper!
The Save the Date was letterpressed in blush + gray and we created a custom illustration of Cheekwood, where the reception took place. They loved the idea of a bookmark so we created this magnolia pattern to wrap around the card and be a keepsake for guests.
We also designed this holiday time engagement party invitation. Same feel, but with a festive hint of gold foil and a colorful liner.
Then for the big day we revealed our plans for a custom magnolia wrap that held all the details together. Inside this luxe invitation was letterpresses + gold foiled and edge painted. Such a gorgeous impact of just how special this wedding would be. The wrap even had a pocket that tucked all the detail and rsvp info neatly behind. The magnolia tree we illustrated was repeated on the custom wax seal.
Even the blush from the save the date made an appearance on the rsvp card and envelope. We really wanted to the suite to feel like you were revealing another level of detail as it unveiled!
All these details carried over into the day of items as well. I love the cohesiveness to this wedding. We got to flex our creative muscles and create outside the box for sure!
