Can you believe this stunning wedding took place in the heart of Orange County, California?! Surrounded by tall hills and lush greenery, their olive and blush details were the perfect design choices for this day full of love and romance. The Ranch Laguna Beach is where Kathryn + Sam exchanged vows on the most beautiful October afternoon. We were honored to create invitations, day-of paper, and signage for this perfect wedding!
Read below for our take on creating these beautiful pieces, and see the whole thing up on Style Me Pretty!
Kathryn + Sam had a color palette of ivory, a taupe blush, and charcoal gray. They chose The Olive semi-custom suite, whose art perfectly blended with their neutral tones in the rest of the suite. They chose to include The Olive envelope liners in their blush envelopes; a beautiful and lovely touch for the guests to open. Their main invitation cards were digitally printed with the watercolor design and letterpressed in charcoal gray, a color matching their reply envelopes.
Waiting for each guest at their seat was a wedding program outlining the ceremony details, wedding party, and remembrance of late loved ones. These matched the design of the Olive semi-custom invitations and were digitally printed. Their wedding ceremony backdrop at The Ranch Laguna Beach was nothing short of spectacular, keeping guests in awe as Kathryn + Sam exchanged vows!
At cocktail hour, guests were directed to their statement acrylic seating chart which directed them to their correct table. The acrylic was painted with a taupe-blush color, matched to the fabric swatch of the bridesmaid dresses. We hand-wrote each name, and included illustrated olive branches on the sides of the display for cohesion with the rest of the pieces.
To correlate with their statement seating chart, their table numbers and other tabletop signage were also painted clear acrylic. In addition, we handwrote the calligraphy in the same style as the fonts from the suite to keep that consistency in the fonts as well. At each seat, guests had a place card with the olive artwork in different spots on the cards for subtle meal indicators, along with an Olive semi-custom menu. To represent the more rustic elements of the event design, they placed each card in a wine cork – a fun craft that Kathryn and Sam were able to do before the wedding together!
One of our favorite special details from this Ranch Laguna Beach wedding was that each heart-shaped cookie was baked by Kathryn’s twin sister! Such a sweet (literally!) and personal favor for each guest to take home with them!
Congratulations, Kathryn + Sam! It was so much fun working with you on everything and you two make such a beautiful couple. We are sending you all the love and happiness going into your marriage and next chapter together!
