REAL WEDDING: laura and elliott

When Laura described her plans for a grey and white wedding, with subtle color accents, I was really excited. REALLY excited. I've been wanting to work on a super elegant grey/white wedding since October of 2008. So yeah.... I was pretty stoked to work with Laura and Elliott. They chose our Aberdeen wedding invitations, and we recreated the stationery for them in shades of charcoal, light grey and white, with a soft pink envelope liner (picture of that pretty number coming soon!). I love how her invitations turned out and so did Laura (her exact words were "dreamy and fabulous!").

You are going to love these shots from Laura and Elliott's wedding. My jaw literally dropped the first time I scrolled through their wedding photographs - no lie. Gorgeous venue, amazing flowers and killer photography by Rustin Michael. Of course, a beautiful, obviously in love couple helps too!

I love a good "getting ready" shot. And I love a great pair of heels.

Laura and Elliott were married and held their reception at the Palos Verdes Country Club.

Possibly the prettiest bouquet I have ever seen. Flowers by Flower Art.

Elliott is a firefighter, and the ringbearer carried the rings down the aisle in his helmet. Afterwards, Elliott's helmet was placed on an empty seat next to Laura's father in rememberance of her late mother.

See this moment? THIS is what a wedding is all about.

We were honored to create Laura and Elliott's ceremony and reception stationery as well their invitations. In addition to the placecards shown above, we designed ceremony programs and small cards for each guest with information about Habitat for Humanity (donations were made there in lieu of favors) along with the lyrics to "That's Amore!" (there was a spirited singalong at the reception!).

Did I mention that Laura is a fashion designer? And that she designed and created her own amazingly beautiful wedding gown? Yeah. She did.

A grand exit. Honestly now, don't they look like fabulous celebrities here?
Congratulations again Laura and Elliott! It was an absolute pleasure working with you!
Thanks to Rustin Michael for the photographs. Check him out here.
