Golden Wedding Details
A Gilded Touch

Designed by the bride, this wedding invite was foil-stamped in gold. Save-the-date postcards were sent in glassine sleeves holding gold confetti.

A glitter-covered runner was a festive project to add panache to the seaside ceremony.
Sassy Wedding Signage
This couple enjoys playing strategy games, so they made a subtle nod to one of their favorites, "Dominion", in the wording of their signage: Chapel, Horn of Plenty, Treasury, Wishing Well, and Potion are all cards in the game and were turned into fun signs cut from mirrored plexiglass.

Bits and Bobs
