Here are more images from Kate and David's January wedding. Most are by their photographer Michael Hanlon, unless otherwise noted. This is another shot of the cake table. Kate made a dozen or so little cake plates from vintage dishes and glasses. I think you can find tutorials for this in the archives of both Readymade and Design Sponge.
This is my photo of Kate's invitation. This was made and essembled in about 2 weeks. We both thought it would be nice to have them hand printed, but worried about the turnaround time with letterpress or silk screening. We came up with having a huge stamp made by my friends over at CH Morse. It was the best alternative because in person, the hand printing is quite nice, almost a bit of a watercolor effect. The design was assembled in photoshop with a chosen font and some hand drawn squiggles and lettering I scanned.
The pretty ribbon is from Tinsel Trading Co. in New York. We made the flowers from beads I happened to have and vintage millinery flowers.
We made a little satin ring pillow to go inside a jewelry case that belonged to Kate's grandmother. It's displayed here on the centerpiece made by David's sister, Beth.
The long main table
We made some drink menus for the bar (this photo is mine) using the table cloth I mentioned last post.
And place cards designed by Kate. This was such a wonderful wedding to work on, not only because Kate is such a great friend, but because almost everything was handmade! Personal touches make for the best weddings and this one was full of art and music by friends and local food and drinks.
