Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Today is the final look at Brooke and Christopher’s charming wedding in North Carolina.  Last week I shared stunning shots from their ceremony at Luola Chapel and flowers by A Beautiful Event by Wendy Wright.  Today is a look at Brooke’s Big Bloom Wedding Invitation and three of my most favorite images by Bella Rose Photography.  This chapel image is perfection for me.  The creamy green walls, whitewashed trim, grand windows and simple chandelier paint the perfect backdrop for this sweet ceremony.

Brooke fell in love with the first invitation sample I created.  My sketchy peonly flooded with shimmering pinks and golds set the romantic tone Brooke was hoping to communicate to guests at first glance.  A simple gold cross woven into the bouquet adds a sweet touch of personal sentiment.

Although I am not sure when these two shots were captured, I can only imagine it was during the wedding celebration.  Brooke and Christopher look incredibly relaxed and at peace.  The fieled of wildflowers in its bold yellow hues add a lovely touch to this collection of images I am sure the couple will treasure for a lifetime.  It is often these secret moments in a magical place that make for the most enchanting and impactful memories.

A huge thank you to Brooke and Christopher for being such a pleasure to work with.  It was our pleasure to tell a small part of your story on paper and even more of a joy to see the remainder of the story unfold with these images.

    I accidently found these postings…I’m so happy you got to enjoy photos from our wedding! Our stationary was perfection, simply elegant and artistic and we could not be happier with the way everything turned out! Thanks to all of our wonderful vendors for making my vision a reality!

    The final two pictures were actually from our Post Wedding shoot we did when we got back from our honeymoon. We didn’t get to do an engagement session and I thought it would be so much fun to be able to put my dress back on…so fun and yes, VERY relaxed ; )
