A Treehouse Wedding

625_jessicaderekF

Could there be anything more romantic or adorable than a wedding in a tree house? A tree house is where we as children “play” wedding. But to actually have a real, grown-up wedding on a tree-covered hilltop with a beautiful view of your hometown and zoo!? Awesome.

We were honored to work with this couple and loved everything about this wedding, so much so that we wrote about it on the Neenah Paper Blog. Check out the full post (with more lovely photos) about this Michigan treehouse wedding!

Who made this event look so so beautiful? The photographer of course! All photos are from Matt Pratt, one of my favorite West Michigan wedding photographers!

Welcome Joseph – Peonies

The Joseph suite came about a few years ago during a custom design, but never made it into the mail. I loved the look too much to discard, so it’s brought to life in our wedding album. The suite is simple and can express so many things depending on the colors used — a bold artistic affair, or a soft and simple rustic or vintage look.

Welcome Andrew — a high-elevation wedding suite

My husband and I met at a rock climbing club, so it’s apropos that this suite would be one of my very favorites. With the type of friends we connect to, we’ve attended a few mountainous weddings and they are always the most memorable. There’s a quiet, stillness that can only be felt in this natural setting, and it captures the perfect focus on the couple and their love. Since mountain weddings are often a destination event, the serenity also instantly creates a community-type bond for guests. All of a sudden you are away from the world and your new best friends are the other guests, sharing
the memories of a special event.

I set out to encapsulate the casual fun, natural style of a
mountain wedding in the Andrew suite.

summer recap

Per usual, summertime in the wedding biz seems to just fly by…
We’ve been so busy with weddings, wholesale orders from NSS & album assembly that we’ve barely noticed this lovely Michigan weather! Here’s a look at the last few months…

Everyone loved the marquee, and it now resides in our store,
lighting up the gift wrapping area.

Here’s a peak of some of the AMAZING weddings and events we’ve been working on this year. I cannot get over the wonderful brides & wedding planners I’ve been working with… such lovely events they are planning!

Oh, and I did get some outdoor time with my two favorite people…

Welcome Marcus – Florals Abound

I realize the last post also welcomed a floral-inspired wedding invitation, but I was finding so many great images on Pinterest for our lovely Marcus that I couldn’t help but continue the theme!

Marcus is very playful, so playful that it could even be a birthday or bar mitzvah invite. I struggled with whether or not this would be a keeper in the new album, but after playing with the colors and imagining ALL the possible variations (Marcus utilizes 6 ink colors!), I feel like this will be great design for many brides. Flowers are a huge part of the wedding day, and if you have a love for floral, this would be a perfect fit!

Oh, and want to match your postage? USPS is getting in on the floral theme this year, too!

Welcome Joel – Outdoor Pastels

Joel makes me think of home. As in where I grew up — on a farm in Indiana.
It reminds me of meadows, fields, hot sun and a playful youth.

I believe a couple needs to have a very certain style for this suite. It’s meant for outdoor or country weddings — more casual affairs that don’t involve fine crystal or tall glass vases. Because every country girl knows, once the dancin’ starts, there better not be
anything breakable around!

I used a pastel palette here, similar to the colors you’ll see next week with the Marcus suite. Because we’re using five colors here, I think pastels or a mix of tints from the same color work best. If using more bold colors, we can switch to using less colors like below.

Below is a mix of inspirational images. Think backyards and ball jars,
sandals and lemonade, giggling flower girls and clear blue skies.
