Day-of Details: Casey + Justin

Congratulations to Casey + Justin!  The happy couple said their vows in Virginia in the fall, and I had such a great time working on their day-of details.  Casey and Justin's day-of details included menus for each place setting, and a signature cocktail bar menu.   

Casey mentioned that they were incorporating a teal scalloped pattern and gold into their details (including Justin's pocket square- so dapper!) and wanted to work that into the menus.  I created a scalloped background, and wrote their menu by hand.  My handwriting was scanned in and placed over the teal scalloped pattern.  After the menus were printed, I added their names and wedding date at the top of each menu in gold ink.

Casey and Justin had two great signature cocktails created for their wedding - the Daywalker and the Unladen Swallow.  For their signature cocktail menu, they wanted to include watercolor illustrations of each drink.  

To help me with the visuals, Casey + Justin sent over photos of each drink- including the glasses and serving details that would be used on their wedding day!  The prep for those incredible reference photos and the cocktail testing sounds like a fun afternoon, doesn't it?
