Let there be MUSIC!

Heather and David met while making music together and their marriage will allow them to continue. Their wedding theme was music, colors red and yellow and Heather’s favorite flowers…Sunflowers. A colorful burst for a late July wedding.  The invitations, menus, programs, napkins, table numbers and seating chart were all centered around their love of music.

More than just Stationery

I love when I become friends with my brides, and better, I love when I work with my brides even after their weddings. I had a blissful time coming up with a lace-inspired letterpress invites for The (new) Mrs. Darrough.

I will say the best part has been the aftermath … Before she was the owner Shannon Darrough Writing and Media, she and I were designing what would become a big part of her business logo for her wedding invites and favors. Who would have predicted a piece of wedding stationery could inspire the start of a whole company?

I knew two things when we started: This bride loved navy and monograms. She loved logos so much she wanted two for her big day. The first was to be the wedding day emblem: a simple “D” bordered by two tobacco leaves. Fitting the Driskill Hotel veranda, where a cigar roller stood ready to offer guests a celebretory smoke.

The second logo (my favorite) was created to introduce her married monogram to all the guests. She confided to me that people kept mispronouncing her last name, and she’d like to lay question to rest. And so was born the “D” with arrow right thru the middle for Darrough as in Darrow. The rest of details just continued to fall into place (in navy blue, of course).

Thank you to Ashley Garmon Photograpy for the amazing photographs.  Dragonfly Designs has provided all of the stationery and logos.  Candy Bar by Stardust Pastry, Event Coordination and Design by The Fairy Godmothers, Wedding and Events, Florals by Stems Floral Design
