Art Deco Wedding Paperie

It's been about a month since the Northlake Wedding & Events Show, and I'm excited to announce that I just received the fabulous pictures from my venue! The photographers were amazing and are from Seattle Flashing Lights Photography

The theme for our venue, Hotel Deca, was "Rendez-vous a Paris". Think Roaring Twenties meets Moulin Rouge meets Gatsby and Art Deco, all rolled into one big wedding! Tons of gold and black with pops of red for added drama.

I had the pleasure of doing all of the paper goods for my venue -- menus, place cards, escort cards (yup, we did both!), "programs" (ceremony programs that were actually programs with our venue's vendor details), buffet dish labels, invite suite... I think that was it!

Check out that gold flatware -- gorgeous, right?! It makes me want to have a set of my own! Anyway, everything looked gorgeous against the black tablecloth. The place cards were held up by teensy tiny gold succulents. So cuuuuuuute! And of course, I did gold calligraphy for the place cards, AND matching gold embossed stamp with a very art deco-y design.

Side note: How GORGEOUS is this cake done by Stone Layne Baked Specialties? This girl is majorly talented! Her level of detail was pretty darn awesome. One more:

So lovely! Okay, back to paper and ink.

I used an enclosure (Love love LOVE enclosures. They're so dramatic without being all teenager-y) with a gold glittery band and a fine paper square fastener. It sort of reminds me of an obi on a kimono... very beautiful!

And I used my favorite layout -- font heavy, pretty drastically different fonts that came together beautifully!

Oh hey! There's my table!! I had a lot on it... next time I think I need to have some additional shelving behind me to display all of the paper goodies!

Well that was a fun day! I look forward to maybe doing this again next year! But just around the corner, I will be at another wedding show/tour! This time it will be Weddings in Woodinville and I am so STOKED! January 25th, 2015, here I come!
