The third and final wedding of August this year (one, two) was my sister-in-law Emily and her boyfriend Lindsay. The were married at Minnehaha Falls amid stunning foliage and loving family and friends.
I was so excited when they asked me to make their wedding stationary! I had already made their save-the-dates, so I knew the feel they were going for with their invitation as well. Simple, elegant, natural, and light.
I found a delicate leaf die-cut to add to the top of the invitation. And I didn't even know that the ceremony site had a canopy of leaves! It was perfect!
I kept the whole invitation pretty simple. I did add a pocket to the back to hold the RSVP card/envelope and an insert card for directions and information.
The reception was at a fun local restaurant. Emily and Lindsay wanted assigned seating, but the meal was a buffet, so we didn't have to deal with individual seating cards. Instead, I made a poster telling everyone which table to go to.
The tables were marked with different herbs. Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, etc. I also made the signs that went into the pots of the plants on the tables. And as a wedding favor, each guest got a small package of the herb on their table!
I am so happy for Emily and Lindsay! I hope their life together is as beautiful and full as the amazing garden they were married in.
