We applied wax seals by hand and made impressions into them with her family ring. The stationery was letterpressed on heavy ivory textured cardstock. The invitations were backed with a gold 'wallpaper' and the program and envelops were lined with the black and white patter shown at the bottom right side of the photo.
Union Station in Kansas City was made into an intimate space with Dan's lamour and sheer draping, super tall taper candles, and clouds of Hydrangea, Roses, Freesia and Baby's Breath.
Isn't the rain romantic?
Her bouquet was an incredible combination of sweet peas, freesia and oh so fragrant tube roses. Her dress in a soft white bengaline is from the Vera Wang Luxe Collection.
Ivory Bengaline linens, glass chargers, and satin lamour ivory napkins set the table. Don't you love the train on the menu card?!
The tall sheer and satin draping created a magical intimacy in such a grand space. The sheer panels gave guests a little sneak peak of what was to come during the cocktail hour.
The original design board! We used her family's ring to make impressions in wax seals that were applied to the wedding stationery (designed by Mr. Boddington's Studio) which included letterpressed invitations, programs, and envelopes. To tie the programs, we used a vintage silk ribbon that was white with the edges dyed ivory. As the reception was at Union Station in KC (a train depot), we featured a letterpressed train on the top of all of the stationery that we used for the reception (in lieu of the wax seal)- escort cards, menus, and 'do not disturb' door hangers for the hotel. The flowers were english garden inspired- we loved this Martha Stewart bouquet for its organic, loose feel and variety of flowers. However, we did not use the privot berries shown, as Vera Wang recommended in fear that they would stain the dress!
