I'm Thankful For... | Part One

In order to get into the spirit of Thanksgiving, we want to share some things we are thankful for. We are always thankful for any bride who chooses us to be a part of their big day. Because of this, we plan to share some invitation suites leading up to Thanksgiving that truly embody what we are thankful for. Many of you know that I lovvvvvve my dog.  She (used) to be my child, I would take her with me ev.ery.where.   Since Jackson has come along, she's been miiiiiildly displaced but I still love her to pieces and she will always be my first fur baby :) So THIS girl is Miss Popularity apparently, because she has been featured once again! Check her out and many of the other cute fur babies on BRIDES Magazine "Top 40 Ways to Include Pets in Your Wedding"! Seeing the BRIDES blog made me think about this stylized shoot that I was part of with many other wonderful vendors to kick-off Tidewater and Tulle's blog launch.



Beyond drooling over the beautiful compilation of greens and ivory flora, we had a lot of fun creating a romantic invitation suite that embodies the classic, southern elegance of the Hampton Roads Area.

The soft gray ink gives the invitation a softness that fits perfectly into the overall aesthetic of the big day and compliments Tiderwater and Tulle's color palette beautifully).


This program is an interesting spin on the traditional day-of paper goods. The program is assembled into three tiers and attached to a spindle. This would be a perfect idea if you were planning a romantic, outdoor ceremony.


Each table setting had a menu with elegant calligraphy on the same fabric that we used on the invitation.


To add a pop of color and to provide labels, we created fun tags for each food item.

We are so thankful to work alongside so many wonderful vendors and to be a part of many stylized shoots.
