Wedding Wednesday: Jeff + Jessica

It’s been a while since we have a Wedding Wednesday in this blog. I promise you, you’ll love this one. Do you remember these fabric invitations we did for Jeff & Jessica’s wedding last Fall?

Well, I was such at joy today to find out that Josh McCullock, the photographer of the big day, has posted tons of photos on his blog of the actual wedding day. Jessica was a friend of mine and it was such a bummer that I couldn’t come to the big day, but Josh did such a wonderful job capturing the day!

Jessica looks so pretty! The birdcage veil and the feathery hair accessories looks amazing on her.

She also mostly DIY the decorations. Don’t you love the old photos hung on tree bark? And of course the mason jar. Looks so lovely and really fits the vintage-barn wedding theme!

The ring-bearer also held responsible bearing a wagon filled with baby flower girls. How cute is that?! The ceremony takes place outside the barn.

Love this “tree lighting” inside the barn, which is where the reception was held. The color combination is one of my favorites! We actually did some labels too for their food buffet with matching design to their invitation. Wish I could show them to you!

Above & Beyond: Jessica Claire Wedding Invitation

Thursday, September 17th, 2009 | Add a Comment

Everyone in the wedding blogosphere knows that Jessica Claire is soon to be married. Her blog have been flooded with love and admiration towards this invitation, and I really don’t want to post something that you’ve seen a million times previously. However, this invitation is just so inspiring I just have to post it. Just for the sake of it :) This Save The Date & the invitation altogether is so beyond gorgeous and charming, and could easily be one of my most favorite invitations ever. As a result, I have another category to put this in. Above & Beyond category will feature very few design works that I think is my all-time most favorite.

(Taken from Jessica’s blog post)
The (Save The Date) is in four pieces, and each one is handmade out of letterpressed tags or stitched muslin. Each one has an antique key attached to the ribbon–every key is different. As the wedding has locks and keys all throughout, (Jessica & Jeff) wanted to bring that in as early as the save the date.

And then there’s the invitation. The invitation is packaged in HOLLOWED OUT BOOKS!

(Taken from Jessica’s blog post)

In keeping with (the) theme, (the) wedding invitation hides away, tucked safely inside a hollowed out book. Each one is completely different–each book was lovingly bought from an old bookstore and chosen for it’s particular color cover, title, thickness, or inside pattern. A steel grey grosgrain ribbon holds the invitation in and is sealed with a copper wax seal with a photo of a lock. On the invitation itself which lays in the hollow, a single, antique button is affixed to each invitation. Every one is incredibly detailed and different and took many HOURS of scouring eBay.

The whole thing is so amazing that I went speechless. Love, love, love!

TGIF. Seriously.
