We have become notorious for our rustic, natural approach to weddings and while I still adore these types of events, it is great to break outside of that niche once in a while. Rebecca and Matt were the perfect couple to push us outside of the rustic into the modern. They wanted something clean and contemporary with a simple white and green palette. The wedding took place at the Commons at Bald Head Island and the reception at the pavilion. Amazing photos by none other than the wonderful Millie Holloman herself!
We hired a graphic designer, Brent Holloman, in April and he has been a great addition to our staff, widely expanding our paper abilities! Rebecca and Matthew wanted us to design everything including invitations, welcome bags, programs, favors, etc. We started with these awesome letterpress invitations designed by Brent.
When getting to the island for the wedding, guests received these welcome bags, which included lots of custom graphic elements-- bag, stickers, water bottles, flags, and information packets.
Golf Carts all use the same key at Bald Head Island, so we created custom stickers where guests could write their names.
As we started working with the design, this green square pattern continued to come into play. On the wedding day, we were so excited when the groom had even worn a green checked tie and pocket square!
Rebecca's favorite flowers were tulips and hydrangea and we added stock and ranunculus to the mix.
The ceremony location was a beautiful sunken garden with a gazebo. It was a stunning place for a wedding.
For the programs, we created fans and brought the pattern back into the design on the back.
Adorable get away golf cart!
On of my favorite spots on the island is the front lawn of the Harbourside Pavilion. We used it for the cocktail hour, with its gorgeous view of the harbor.
I am loving the high table and barstool trend-- really a cool effect for a lounge style reception.
We draped all of the tent walls, which while a huge undertaking certainly helps to soften the tent.
Flower and Flour made some amazing desserts! This might be my favorite dessert bar we have done with them-- the design was so clean and pretty.
The back lawn of the pavilion is another amazing spot overlooking the marsh and lighthouse.
Groovetown-- one of the best bands in the area!!
End of the night snacks-- sweet tea and chicken and biscuits.
No sparklers at Bald Head, so we have to settle for glow sticks-- still a neat effect!
Thanks so much, Rebecca and Matt, for giving us some modern inspiration! You were such a joy to work with!!
