Stefanie & Michael frequent Paris often and wanted that to be a source of inspiration for their wedding. Romantic, elegant, old-world, gold. When your bride is wearing a pair of fab wedding shoes, you use them as a source of inspiration for her wedding stationery.

Take a peek at her shoes — aren’t they are stunning?! Of course, I couldn’t pass up on the incredible detailing on her shoes. But, of course, the elegance doesn’t stop at just the design. HOW the invitations were delivered was equally important — Stefanie and Michael knew that the invitation plays such an important role for guests since it sets the tone for the whole evening.

Wedding ceremony program.
Stefanie & Michael’s day-of pieces followed the same look and feel, making one cohesive look. The programs and tags for the flower petal toss bags displayed the ornate design at the ceremony. Personalized menus greeted their guests at dinner by starting the meal off with Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne. Stefanie and Michael had their own signature drink: Lemon Drop Martini for Stefanie and Brandy Old Fashion Sour for Michael. (Which to choose?!)

Wedding reception signage: signature drink, table numbers & dessert selections.
And the desserts! Oh my! Wedding cake (2 flavors), Eiffel Tower sugar cookies (of course!), cupcakes (4 yummy flavors), and chocolate-covered strawberries. Even Stefanie admits that they might have gone overboard with the desserts. But I think not! You can never have enough dessert! Lastly, to bring the design elements full circle, thank you notecards.
