“Food, Booze, and Bad Dance Moves. You in, or what?” – I knew the moment Lisa & Scott passed on this wording for their Save the Dates that working on their wedding was going to be loads of FUN! I adored working with these two and their inspired planner, Abbey of Purple Summer Events, on their playful and eclectic wedding vision. Their wedding style was simple and laid back with an earthy color palette and a farm to table vibe at their barn venue, the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield.
For Lisa & Scott’s stationery we played into their soft, earthy color palette with watercolor washed mountains and color gradients. We layered these softer components with fun, eclectic hand lettering throughout. This quirky theme was continued with a hand illustrated map of the Denver area, as well as a super fun cassette tape drawing on the back of their reply cards to collect guests’ song requests! All of this was finished off with a rustic twine belly band and custom paper monogram tag.
The day-of designs for this cheerful barn wedding carried all the lovely hues and style from Lisa & Scott’s stationery right into their big day details! We created this ombre calligraphy escort card display – as seen on our wooden escort card display wall, which is available to rent in Denver! (hint hint). We also designed hand lettered reception menus which doubled as place cards with delicate calligraphy at the top of each one.
Now, we have to talk about this paper cone curtain ceremony background – my favorite piece from Lisa & Scott’s wedding!!! This handmade curtain was carefully crafted in an ombre color pattern of their palette to adorn their outdoor ceremony site. We even hung a few single strands to create an “aisle” among the trees leading into the site. The way they all flowed in the wind created something so magical and happy.
Congratulations again to one of my favorite couples, Lisa & Scott!
