Before I show off stationery that we created for couples who were married just this past weekend, I have to do one more post for one of my favorite couples from this year so far: Kara & Steve. You may remember their awesome, blind embossed Save-the-Date Cards that were featured on this blog back in October of last year, or their even more awesome wedding invitations that we showed off in here in June. Well, their wedding happened a week ago and while I haven’t heard from Kara & Steve, I did hear from their planner and photographer that the event was just magnificent, and I honestly can’t imagine any way that it could have been otherwise. We created a few additional paper goods for Kara & Steve’s big day after completing their invitations, that I wanted to show you. Those included a set of coasters and a set of ceremony programs, both of which you can see in the photo above.
We kept both pieces fairly simple, design-wise, but they were still very much in the same style as all of their other wedding stationery. Kara & Steve’s coasters were a 3.5″ round size and featured their Allium flower motif blind embossed in the background. We printed their names (in Kara’s handwriting) over the top of the allium, with their wedding date, year and location below, all in Aubergine ink. I imagine these made a lovely edition to their cocktail hour and/or dinner!
Kara and Steve’s ceremony programs were a lovely, simple, single-fold style and were printed on standard 110 lb. Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper in Ecru (to match their other stationery). This program was smaller in size than many of the others I’ve done in the past, but I think the small size was really nice and gave a much more personal feel to the piece. These programs measured 5 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ when folded. The cover, which you can see in the photo above, featured two blind embossed floral elements and Kara and Steve’s hand-written names, as well as the date, time, and location of the wedding in Aubergine ink.
The interior of the program also featured blind embossed flowers and had the wedding party information on one side of the program, and the ceremony events on the other side. I love how nice, modern and simple Kara kept all of her wording for the party and ceremony information. It really helped keep the style and “look” of this piece consistent with all of the other stationery we created for their wedding!
Kara and Steve were a fabulous couple to work with and I truly enjoyed getting to create so many different pieces for their wedding! Thanks so much again Kara & Steve and Congratulations! : )
