In the photo above, I affixed different tags to small pumpkins using brown satin ribbon…perfect for place cards!

I made the tags in the photos below by affixing cropped decorative papers onto Kraft paper tags {so easy!}

Southern Living Weddings vendor? Yes, ma’am!

Southern Living Weddings vendor? Yes, ma’am!

Southern Living Weddings magazine is chock-full of colorful, gorgeous real weddings and charming ideas & inspiration to help you plan your dream day.  So I was thrilled to learn that the wedding of one of my brides would be featured in the current edition – and I was even more thrilled to be listed as a vendor (!).

Please enjoy all of the beautiful photos below by Elisa B. Photography.

Natalie & Travis were married last June at The Greenbrier Sporting Club in West Virginia….a truly amazing venue.

I loved doing their place cards on Kraft paper tags – very befitting of their casual, rustic reception.

Take a look below at the creative way Natalie & Travis displayed their guests’ escort tags.  The white ink on the purple tags is a little hard to see – but I promise you, the tags were awesome!  Natalie asked me to make the sign on the navy paper “on the fly” – and I love how it doesn’t look perfectly laid out or overwrought…..it’s relaxed & fun.

Below is my favorite photo of Natalie & Travis. Natalie was so sweet to send me photos.  I love, love, love to see photos of my clients on their special day.

I love the unique scalloped edges of these escort cards.  The tented cards were strung along twine using teeny-tiny clothespins. I wrote each guest’s name in black calligraphy.  My bridal client wanted the table assignments written inside the tented cards, which I think is a grand idea!  These tented cards serve as very special folded notes, to be given to a dear friend.

The die-cut place cards below are made from gorgeous thick paper stock.  I wrote the names in black calligraphy.  The cards were tied to the napkins with twine and adorned with a sprig of rosemary.  Lovely!

For the table name signs, I outlined the cards, by hand, in gold ink.  I wrote the table names in calligraphy with a broad nib.  The tables were named after the bride & groom’s favorite places.   Here are photos of a few:
