Our latest inspiration was our friends Josh and Lizzy (note their adorable photo, above, taken by the talented Lashelle Chappell, at their actual engagement: yes, Josh proposed with the hanging letters= A-Dorable). We play with Josh in a band at our church, Vintage 21, and Lizzy volunteers with the children there (which is how they met and you can read more about that and see more photos from their precious engagement here).
As for their wedding, they are having their ceremony at an awesome renovated church in downtown Raleigh, All Saints Chapel (interior shown above). They described their wedding vision as a total party and a celebration; they wanted something fun as well as city chic, seeing as their reception will be in a killer space downtown as well. They also had a bold and fun color palette: fuschias, pinks, black and white (shown above). We got one phrase from Josh, a lover of cigars and fine whiskey: Mad Men. Lizzy wanted a bit rustic, vintage, Anthropologie. So our task as designers was to mix the rustic with the chic-as-all-get-out magic of Mad Men. Stayed tuned for the final product as Lizzy sent the invites out this week!
