jacquie and josh · point clear, alabama

Jacquie and Josh preferred a venue that could accommodate all of their family and friends, since both bride and groom's guests would mostly be out-of-towners, and also serve as the reception site, to keep things organized and easily accessible. The Grand Hotel was the most perfect location for their September vows, which sits on Mobile Bay in Point Clear and a mile down the road from their ceremony site. Jacquie, a wedding planner, wanted to focus on her wedding color palette and her floral arrangements for all of her wedding stationery. The detailed images of cherry blossoms and orchids enhanced their guests' weekend timelines and maps, along with their hand-held ceremony fans dressed with double-faced satin ribbon. Soft lavender, silver and black inks brought Jacquie and Josh's wedding stationery to life, and truly complimented their wedding weekend.

Kim and Thomas wanted a venue that could accommodate all of their family and friends for the weekend and serve as a reception site also. The Grand Hotel was the most perfect location for their September vows, which sits on Mobile Bay in Point Clear and right down the scenic route from their beautiful church in Fairhope. Kim had imagined a very traditional, southern wedding complete with hues of champagne and ivory, and flowers draping every inch of the Grand Ballroom. Their stationery was inspired by the simple, elegant and classic look of their wedding ceremony and reception, focusing on a color palette of neutral hues with hints of columbia blue and espresso brown.

Brit and Brian had a very small, intimate wedding ceremony on the shore of Ono Island, sealed with a beautiful sunset.

The stationery was a beautiful reflection of their simple and sweet wedding day.

jami and michael · fairhope, alabama

Jami grew up in fairhope and knew it was the only place she wanted to be married, even though her family moved to Texas when she was attending college. She wanted Michael's family and friends to see her wonderful hometown and it's beautiful setting of Mobile Bay. They were married on the bluff overlooking the water with a perfect sun setting in the sky. Along with the ceremony, the wedding guests stayed at The Grand Hotel where the view of Mobile Bay couldn't be more perfect. Jami and Michael's wedding stationery was inspired by the calm and relaxing bay view of Fairhope.

ashley and jon · fairhope, alabama

Ashley (that would be mwah) and Jon (my cute hubs) envisioned a wedding weekend full of good times with family from near and far, and friends from childhood through college. Ashley had always dreamed of the outside wedding with big white tents and lots of vibrant colors. So it couldn't have been more perfect when Jon's parents (my sweet and wonderful in-laws) offered their beautiful home as the reception site. A picturesque eight acres of green grass, a gorgeous home and barn that sits back on the property, overlooking a quiet pond complete with a gazebo. Ashley and Jon's wedding stationery was inspired by this flawless venue and colorful, fun mood of their wedding reception. It was more than they had ever imagined... and so fun!

Ashley and Jon had a one-of-a-kind, handmade and handwritten invitation to resemble the font used on their Wedding Logo and Save the Date. And also carried on through their simple, one-fold Ceremony Programs. The espresso brown ink and white laid textured paper truly complimented one another, and left the handwriting to speak for itself.

Ashley and Jon's rehearsal dinner was held at a favorite local restaurant whose rustic atmosphere and old world decor inspired their dinner invitations and menus. White table cloths, black napkins, old wooden walls and a hand-laid brick fireplace were only a few descriptions that complimented the rehearsal stationery.

tyler and will · seaside, florida

Tyler has been vacationing in Seaside, Florida since she was a little girl, and loves everything about the beach village. It couldn't have been planned more perfectly when Will, her high school sweetheart, proposed to her on a weekend getaway to Seaside. One year later, Tyler and Will had their dream wedding... After Ten, They Finally Gave In! Their wedding stationery was a beautiful collection of custom drawn images such as the Seaside Chapel, a peaceful Cross and a rooftop logo all garnished with soft pistachio greens, baby blues, whites and a hint of espresso brown.
