Jessica + Jerome’s Moody and Romantic Wedding

Jessica + Jerome were married at Serra Plaza, a beautiful and tucked-away venue in the heart of downtown San Juan Capistrano. Their wedding was full of moody and romantic vibes, and we were so honored to be a part of it!

Planned and designed by Pure Lavish Events, this stunning wedding was complete with a color palette of burgundy, peach, white, and gold. Penelope Pots’ florals completed the design with their different textured and layered centerpieces and displays throughout the event. Stunning to say the least!

The Invitations

Jessica + Jerome chose The Standard from our semi-custom invitation collection. We kept the invitations very classic and beautiful by using letterpress printing on double-thick paper for an extra deep impression. Then, we assembled the “love” envelope liner into a beautiful burgundy envelope that matched their wedding-day color palette perfectly.

In addition, we kept their details card simple, digitally printed with a fun, illustrated timeline for the reception. The reply card was also digitally printed and included a matching burgundy envelope for guests to send in their responses. A stunning first impression for their guests that definitely set the tone of what to expect for the wedding day!

The Ceremony

When you first walk into Serra Plaza, the welcome sign and entry table is the first thing to greet you. We created a cardstock welcome sign that fit inside the venue’s provided frame for an elegant and cohesive introduction. Jessica + Jerome had us create moody and romantic wedding signage as well, with their favorite bible verses. These were displayed prominently on each side of the aisle and later displayed throughout the evening as decorative signage.

We matched the design of these dual-tone acrylic verse signs to their table numbers and guestbook sign as well. There’s nothing more pleasing to the eye than consistency and cohesiveness throughout the entire event!

The Reception

These two love birds met while on an airplane AND got engaged on an airplane, so we were sure to incorporate those special details into their designs. The guests were shown to their table by a stunning hedge-wall seating chart display. The theme of “love is in the air” was perfect for their airplane story, and we created clear acrylic, handwritten circles to complete the look.

Another way we incorporated the airplane detail was with the place cards and wax seal meal indicators. To match the signage, we created clear acrylic place cards for each guest. We handwrote these in a calligraphy style that closely matched the script from their semi-custom suite. To makes sure the wait staff knew which meal the guest ordered, we created custom wax seals in three colors to differentiate the choices. The wax seal design included a little airplane to tie in their love story – so cute!

To wrap up the evening, Jessica surprised Jerome with a dance with her fellow Cowboys cheerleaders! They definitely got the party started for this magical evening that is one for the books!
