One of the things that made our New Buffalo wedding so drop dead gorgeous was the attention that was given to detail. Since paper materials are one of the key details, Olive-Route custom designed all of the paper goodies for this wedding.
Inspired by the old-world Great Gatsby theme, the invitations and welcome letter tied together a sense of classic elegance with a modern twist. Incorporating a botanical element made the suite really pretty and delicate, while choosing Queen Anne's Lace as the floral motif brought in a summery feel. The color palette was mostly gray with splashes of bright yellow and hot pink. So, most of the paper was either gray or white, with black or yellow text and a hot pink hand stitching that bound the pieces together into a booklet format.
The letter pressed and hand calligraphed menus were placed atop unique vintage table settings, part of the Small Masterpiece collection.
Table numbers were die cuts of wood, painted black so they'd stand out against the khaki linen runners and wood tables. The botanical theme was even intertwined into those pieces.
For the seating chart, we used some nineteenth century vintage ephemera lettering to alphabetize guests' names, creating a chart on an old wood framed blackboard.
