Joanie + Todd 5.25.12

Joanie and Todd were married at the beautiful Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. The wedding took place on the cotton dock and the entire wedding reflected the couple’s personality right down to the cocktail straws that guests adorned in mason jars during the ceremony.

 Having a destination wedding on a holiday weekend the couple decided to make it a 3 day event with a newlywed craw fish boil to kick off their new lives as husband and wife. We knew their would need to be a lot of different pieces with lots of information for their guests. We wanted to come up with a way to make it all fit together in one beautiful package. We started off using cardstock as our pocket fold invitation but it needed something more… I wanted the invitations to reflect not only the couple’s personalities but the simplistic elegance of the location.

After much trial and error we decided to use linen fabric instead of cardstock  and hand stitched the edges to create an invitation that un-folds into a pocket invitation.  We topped it off with a lace garnish to pull in that beautiful vintage feel the bride was wanting to achieve. The Bride asked for simple yet unique and elegant yet under-stated. It was such an honor to work with Joanie on her invitations, and cocktail straws to achieve a look that reflected her elegant vision.
