Southern Charm meets Brooklyn Modern

Last Spring the ladies from 100 Layer Cake asked Thoughtful Day to be a part of their creative team to design the stationery for a fabulous wedding shoot for Southern Weddings magazine. I was more than thrilled (as you can imagine!) to work with the creative team they put together of Jillian Event Design, Anna Robin, Love, Jenna Calligraphy, Quatre Coeur flowers and so many more!

The theme was a romantic and modern take on the Great Gatsby meets modern Brooklyn. The shoot was full of romantic, southern charm with details like the lovely biscuit bar, and a signature cocktail called the Fitzgerald. And to make the shoot even more charming, the lovely couple was serenaded by Brooklyn's very own Two Man Gentleman Band.

Thoughtful Day designed the invitation to look like a vintage movie poster with bold headline type treatments, surrounded by a romantic, ornate border faming the two loving silhouettes. The talented Love, Jenna complimented the invitation event details with her calligraphy. The typography on the invitation set the tone for the rest of the signage and items that I designed such as the Cocktails and Biscuit Bar signs. But I think my favorite item that I designed for the shoot was the menu fan. The background was a subtle damask pattern with a bold type treatment for Menu which was then delicately complimented by Jenna's feminine calligraphy.

I'm so thrilled to finally show you all of these details! A lot of love and creative thought went into planning this shoot. Thank you so much to the lovely ladies of 100 Layer Cake, what an honor to be included in this issue. And be sure to pick up a magazine for yourself. A couple of other amazing wedding blogs like Once Wed, and Green Wedding Shoes have gorgeous features as well!
