brie and aubrey · mobile, alabama

Brie and Aubrey met in Birmingham shortly after college, and when it came time for Aubrey to pop the question, there was no doubt that Brie knew Mobile was the only place she would want to get married. Brie and Aubrey's wedding reception was at the Bragg Mitchell Mansion, set under the most beautiful oak trees in Mobile. Along with this picturesque setting and Brie's favorite color, yellow, their wedding materials came to life. Their save the date set the stage for their custom stationery and provided their guests with a southern greeting, "Meet Us under the Oaks."

Brie wanted a unique and different take on asking her friends and family to be a part of her bridal party. A custom drawn image of girls wearing the bridesmaids dresses she had chosen were sent to each one of her friends and family with a personal message of honor and privilege from Brie. Her bridesmaid luncheon invitations and menus also reflected this initial design with the addition of hats, as the attire preferred hats at the country club, and created a consistent and recognizable theme to her luncheon event.

ashley and chris · ono island, orange beach, alabama

Orange Beach was the most perfect place for Ashley and Chris to spend their wedding weekend after many memories of first dates and their Fourth of July engagement. Both of their families have homes on Ono Island, which was the most beautiful setting for an April reception. Their colors were inspired by the waters surrounding this private island, including an aruba and tiffany blue. Their wedding invitations and ceremony programs were both decorated with an elegant monogram including their last name initials and simple cross. The invitations were made of classic ecru Crane cardstock and the programs were dressed with gorgeous tiffany blue double-faced satin ribbons.

Their save the dates provided several accommodations for their out-of-town guests and set the stage for the remaining custom wedding stationery. Ashley and Chris provided hotel baskets for their wedding party and guests, including custom maps of Orange Beach, weekend itineraries and koozies.

Ashley and Chris's rehearsal dinner was held at Mango's on the Island, a picturesque white tablecloth, candlelit fine dining restaurant overlooking the beautiful Orange Beach Marina. The restaurant was decorated in mango/orange interior with black and white awnings surrounding the building. These details inspired their rehearsal dinner stationery, including invitations, menus, seating and table cards.

niki and jordy · fairhope, alabama

The United Methodist Church and Rock Creek Golf Club were easy choices for Niki and her family to decide when it came to her dream wedding ceremony and reception. Growing up in Fairhope, she knew exactly what she wanted for she and Jordy's wedding weekend. Her colors consisted of a coral, with a hint of pinkish red, and a combination of white and cremes. Together these colors, along with linen and unfinished papers, truly made Niki and Jordy's wedding stationery unique and unusually beautiful. Along with invitations, reply cards and programs, they also decided on foil-stamped napkins and printed tumblers for their reception, both garnished with their custom-made monogram. And since many of their guests were out-of-towners, Niki and Jordy opted for an itinerary to help their guests with scheduling and events throughout their weekend.
