[wedding planning] my bff is getting married!

My best friend is getting married!!
I’m so excited for kerry & bryan… their big day will be June 18th, 2011 in Santa Fe.

Not only are we now planning the bachelorette/bridal shower weekend in Napa (YAY!), but the wedding planning has begun as well. I wanted to document this process along the way, so please let us know if you have any thoughts or ideas based on her theme. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together!

design inspiration

wedding theme : I first asked kerry to find some photo inspiration that we could design her theme from (above). The venue will be at a winery in Santa Fe, but he popped the question at the top of a mountain during a hike. Therefore, they chose a hiking theme and will incorporate green, light brown/tan with blue details throughout.

Invitations : below is a quick teaser of the sample invitation package we’ve designed so far;
2-layer horizontal invite with custom illustration, a pocket in the back for RSVP postcard & additional enclosure cards {we used leaf & cement papers via paper-source.}

bridesmaid dress : we first picked out a few dress styles that we each liked for a summer outdoor wedding. The Bari Jay dress (shown below on the left) was my first pick, love the sage chiffon dress wrapped in matching Charmeuse! We are obviously best buddies for a reason because we both picked out the same dress from After Six via the Dessy Group (right), although, we each chose a different dress color and trim {a very fun style when you can play with the sash/trim colors!} hmm, now to decide which is the winner! votes?

wedding cake : love these hiking/mountain themed cakes! Hopefully they can find a local baker who can add a few details from both designs to their custom cake {personally I think the hard part will be deciding on flavors!}

wedding flowers : this is “my” floral bouquet inspiration based on kerry’s colors + santa fe seasonal flowers…I believe she mentioned adding a splash of dark red somewhere in the color scheme? maybe the flowers?!
