Jamie sent me a few inspiration images for her wedding. What stuck with me the most was her affinity for a more subtle, rustic approach - her wedding colors are leaf and navy with cream accents. The wedding is this fall in Atlanta, so I wanted to make sure to give the suite some classic Southern charm.
I've seen lots of julep cups featured in various weddings lately... And I can't seem to forget the cover of the April/May 2010 issue of Garden&Gun Magazine... what's more southern than gardens and guns, can I get an amen? I drew lots of inspiration from the beaded edges of the julep cup, as you can see. I loved the architectural structure that started to form, and I decided to add a little quirkiness with some hand-drawn banners.
The invitation suite is being printed as we speak, and follows the same vein as the save the dates. By the way, these are magnets, one of my favorite options for save the dates. Keep checking for the rest of Jamie and Austin's beautiful set - I'll be blogging about them again soon!
