On this quite brisk morning here in sunny Savannah, (where we are used to warm temperatures, even in winter!), I thought I would share these bright and happy images. These are a few of the stationery shots from a photo shoot done with Lovely Day Studios that graced the pages of Savannah Weddings fall/winter issue 2011. Lovely Day Studios is a Savannah based collective of artisan wedding professionals, including photographers Jade + Matthew Take Pictures, event designer Elizabeth Demos, event maker Andrea Gray Harper, stitch queen Audrey Wagner of French Knot, and myself. We love working together as a group to create beautiful fine art and vintage weddings, but we play well with other (vendors!) too.
The theme was a picnic wedding with hot air balloon accents… set in a picturesque backyard along the water. I wanted the stationery to feel light-hearted and reflect the picnic vibe, and incorporated custom patterns that were reminiscent of picnic blankets. The response cards were particularly fun, as they would allow the guests to participate by coloring in the balloon that matched their response. Custom game coasters add to the low key vibe, and encourage guest interaction with one another. Look for another Lovely Day inspiration shoot in the next issue of Savannah Weddings, releasing February 1.
