Guests at this Eastern Shore wedding received a warm welcome when they drove on to the property, thanks to a sign designed by the bride. Leslie designed stenciled plywood and used a jigsaw in her parent’s garage to cut out the greeting, finishing it off with a coat of white paint.
A sign with a quote from the bride's late mother was on display at this wedding. "She always described love to me as 'when someone else's needs and wants become more important than your own,'" she said. "I have always cherished those words so we had them printed on wood and displayed for everyone to enjoy."
Nisse and Matt served cakes featuring five different flavors: lemon with sour cherry filling, chocolate with hazelnut ganache, chocolate with apricot ganache, red velvet with sweet cream filling, and banana with butterscotch ganache. The sign read "First comes love, then comes dessert."
There is only one main road on 18-mile Long Beach Island, and Katie and Colman's guests had to cross it from the beach to the reception venue. Wedding coordinator Annie Lee of Daughter of Design created custom signs for the street. She update the safety sign by adding the couple's silhouettes and newly shared last name.
Upon arrival at Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, Tereasa and David's wedding guests were greeted by a 1955 Mercury Monterrey. The couple shares a love for vintage cars and motorcycles, so it was only fitting that they park one from their collection on the property. The "D.H. + T.S." sign felt very much like a craft project made at camp and was flanked by daisies.
Wedding planning came easily for Anne and Josh who envisioned an elegant yet fuss-free celebration. "We really wanted everyone to embrace the tropical location," says Anne. One example? A sign directing guests to "lose their shoes" echoed the same sentiment featured on the invitations.
