Because the whole invitation was plant-able, I wanted to carry on the theme. Each seating card/packet consisted of lavender seeds to plant and an old vintage French seed packet label which I found bulk on French ebay. I wanted something people could keep, frame and/or remember. I placed them in old wooden cassette boxes I found at a garage sale. They fit perfectly. To identify the tables I used vintage metal street letters I found on etsy. I really wanted to use the vintage style feed sack material- (I discovered they are pricey). After extensive research, I found an affordable place that happen to have the colors I wanted with the purple stripes yet each one slightly different. Cara Spinelli was a dream to work with from Transylvania Images.








Michael and Robin ended up projecting old movies filmed in San Francisco(where they met) throughout the evening on the tent. How fun is that? Corbin, thank you so much again for sharing this gorgeous wedding with us today!

The escort cards looked so good. I love how the old cassette case was used to hold them. A very pretty wedding overall.

This is so lovely. Purple is my favorite color and it’s great how it was incorporated in an elegant way. Any idea what type of flowers/stems are in the champagne glasses? Are they just lavender? Is it fresh vs. dried?

If you have not resold them, I would be interested in buying your cassette boxes. I’ve been looking for something similar, and when I saw that — I was like “yes! that’s exactly what I need!” Tx.
