Christine of CEVD designed incredible invitations to fit the vision- a save-the-date actually printed on a feather!! These would be sent in sweet little glass tubes as a wonderful surprise for guests. The invitation combined stitched nubby fabric, a piece of wood and a mailing box full of moss and woodsy bits.
For the place settings, I turned to my dear friend Jason Murakawa of Small Masterpiece. Jason’s collection is like something out of a museum- each piece as unique and exquisite as the next. Antique Haviland Limoges china, beautiful pressed flint glass goblets, and carved horn and carved bone handled flatware were the perfect touch.
The raw, industrial Edison bulbs from Bella Vista Designs created a spellbinding glow as the sun went down as well as provide a bit of an unexpected touch. I always love to incorporate a bit of juxtaposition industry (bulbs) within nature, refined and fine (place settings) within overgrown and natural, etc. I think it creates interest and stimulates the senses.
Stay tuned for a list of vendors and a beautiful film from this shoot coming up next!
