Racheal + Steve | Grand Rapids, Michigan
Racheal and Steven were married in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was a destination wedding for many of their friends and they found the perfect hideaway at Bissel Tree House for their reception. Their wedding was inspired by the concept of an elegant garden party, with all of the lush florals and pale colors that go along with it.
This bride had a fabulous idea for her custom sate the dates. Rather than a typical photo save the date, they commissions a watercolor timeline. We illustrated the place they met, the place they had gotten engaged and finally the place they we to be wed. This helped their friends and family to be more familiar with their love story as well as get excited for this Michigan wedding.
When it came to their stationery Rachel wanted something on the simple side with a focus on the textures of thick cotton paper and letterpress. So we created a suited that features a blunt presses monogram, both on the invitation and on other details throughout. We also added a custom watercolor floral envelope liner so bring a touch of romance to the suite.
For the wedding and reception we created several pieces from wedding ceremony programs to menus and signage. But my favorite details was her escort card display. Designer Shelby, of A Day’s Design, had a really creative idea for a a seating chart display that incorporated wild greenery and florals and hand calligraphed acrylic for a perfect mix of modern and romantic for this focus point.
