Style Me Pretty Feature… Emily & Justin’s Summer Vineyard Wedding

September 23, 2011

We are so thrilled to see this wedding appear on Style Me Pretty today! Working with Emily and Justin and their families in the planning of this special day was truly a highlight of our season. It is always such a joy to me when I have the opportunity to work with a couple that ultimately becomes life long friends and these two are a special pair! As I watched their wedding video from the absolutely incredible Buzz Media I couldn’t help but well up as Justin carried Emily off into the sunset, like it was perfectly filmed for a movie.  For even more on this love story, details of the day and amazing images check out Robert & Kathleen’s blog.

About the Design: For Emily and Justin we wanted to create the perfect summer winery wedding that was unique to the two of them. The design was a combination of subtle rustic details and classic elegance. We used bold jewel tones of cobalt blue, purple and magenta to warm the interior space of the winery that created the perfect palette against the grey floor and dark brown walls. Emily from Paper Moss worked with us on designing the most gorgeous invitation suite and accompanying paper accessories to bring all of the subtle details through the paper. The escort card board was made of old wine casks that were hand crafted into a frame with hundred of wine corks from their favorite bottles over the years that they have enjoyed and ones that their family and friends helped them to collect. Since Emily has a great love of scrap booking she thought it would be perfect to incorporate that detail into the guest book. Where guests could leave message for them throughout the book that was filled with pictures of the two of them dating back to the day they met at Senior Frogs on Spring Break in Mexico.

From the Bride:
Starting the planning process felt both exciting and overwhelming. With so many decisions to make, we enlisted the help of Sarah True from True Event and other amazing vendors to help us make our vision into a reality. My mom and I are both very artistic, crafty people and I knew I would want to take on various DIY projects as part of the wedding. With the help of friends and family we collected corks for an entire year and used frames made out of wine staves to create an escort card corkboard. I also constructed a scrapbook documenting our love story that served as our guestbook. These special touches are things we will be able to use in our everyday life that will continue to remind us of our incredible wedding day.
