alice & ben : martha's vineyard wedding

This wedding was so much fun to work on. Paperfinger got to create so many different paper details...

Alice and Ben are a wonderful New York couple whose hearts lie also with Martha's Vineyard. They met on the island, both families having spent a lot of time there. The wedding was held in April on Alice's mother's beautiful property in Chilmark. The landscape there naturally dictated the aesthetic of all the wedding design. All the pieces I created tied together a classic, elegant calligraphy script, a soft hand-lettered serif caps -- all in shades of dark purple and grey, exactly the colors you see in the environment of Martha's Vineyard.

They lucked out with gorgeous weather and here are some photos of the wedding, with special attention to the pieces I created. The entire wedding was featured this month on Style Me Pretty -- check it out to browse the full gallery and read about all the details. All photography by Shawn Connell of Christian Oth Studio.

In addition to their save the dates and rehearsal dinner invitations, I created:

Folded, multi-page welcome booklets

These awaited each guest in their hotel, with a welcome message from the couple, complete schedule details, an illustrated map of the island, even a pocket sleeve for hand-calligraphed coupons at local eateries. The stone wall on the cover came from the illustration I did for the save the date.

A tri-fold program, tied with raffia:

A light grey hand-lettered menu with each guest's name individually written on top in deep purple:
