// WEDDING WEDNESDAY // Cups and Koozies

Maybe it’s the heat, but an ice cold drink sounds really good right about now! We decided to collect some of our favorite photos of cups and koozies to give you a little inspiration of how to inject some fun into your wedding festivities.

Go old school with a traditional foam koozie. Margaret Cheatham and Frank celebrated their engagement in Linville, NC with this coordinating set.

Stewart and William had different frosted cups for different events throughout their wedding weekend. The same sage green color was used on both designs.

Koozies are a great way to add a little color to your reception. We created this custom illustration of the wedding venue for Kasey and Grover. They had the koozies printed in two different colors- one for the guys and one for the girls!

Or keep things neutral like Rawlings and Tommy.

Incorporate your wedding duogram, add a hashtag, or favorite motif. But most importantly, have fun! By the time the reception rolls around, you will be ready for that first sip!

// REAL WEDDINGS // Rachel + Joel

Our magnolia trees have started blooming here in the South and we are reminiscing back to a Fall wedding last year with so many sweet southern touches. Rachel and Joel got married this past October. From the magnolia leaves in the bride’s bouquet to the country club reception, this was a southern wedding through and through. And although we southerners love our etiquette, traditions, and sweet tea, we also know how to kick back and celebrate. This wedding embodied both notions.

The Save the Dates included a painted portrait of the church where Rachel and Joel would stand before their loved ones and take their vows. Classic and elegant, the text was kept minimal.

Wedding Invitations

Rachel chose a beautiful classic script for her wedding invitations printed in graphite thermography by our friends at Crane & Co. We think it set the stage perfectly for an elegant affair.

Program, menu & map

We had the pleasure of working closely with Rachel to design a custom monogram for her to use throughout her wedding day papers. It was debuted on the wedding programs and then continued on the menus, napkins and koozies.

Rachel wanted to continue the elegant simplicity of the watercolor drawing from her save the dates to greet her guests as they came into town. An artist from Etsy created a custom map of all wedding festivities that we printed in-house on felt paper.


Cups and Koozies

Rachel and Joel chose to add a festive touch to all the beverages served at their reception with personalized cups and koozies. We love that they even continued the celebration on their honeymoon by taking their koozies along.

Holiday Cards

One of our favorite things is when a bride comes back after all the wedding celebrations are over to order stationery with their new name or debut their beautiful wedding photos on a holiday card. We absolutely loved working with Rachel and Joel throughout all the phases of their wedding and wish them the best in their marriage!

It’s been almost a year since Rawlings and Tommy tied the knot on Figure Eight Island. Carolina blue skies hung overhead and full hearts celebrated the happy couple. Rawlings’ paper trousseau used a beautiful shade of blue to echo the coastal backdrop. From the Save the Dates to the menus, a cohesive looks was created that tied all elements of the wedding weekend together. No detail was left undone. We just love how all of the paper pretties enhanced the festivities. Read on to see all the details.

From custom welcome booklets, tags, programs, menus and place cards to printed napkins and cups, Emily & Nick's special day was filled with personal touches that made the day unforgettable.

So for today's post, we are leaving the blogging up to the professional, and just giving you a glimpse of the details we created below. Head on over to Emily's blog to check out all the other goodness from her beautiful wedding.
