CEREMONY DETAILS PART 4
I am a self professed Font Nerd. I’ve downloaded an ungodly amount of them. What’s your font collection look like? Are you a font nerd too? Do you even care about fonts?
I appreciate art. I appreciate the skill it takes to combine fonts. I do not have a formal education in graphic arts. Just an unquenchable desire to create, learning new things as I go. I’m determined to continue to educate myself. I suppose my unspoken motto would be “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!”
As I explained in part 1 of this series I have a MacBook, but not photoshop. I used Keynote & Pages to create all the print items for this wedding. There were many rough drafts along the way.
The wedding invitations were printed on card stock & mailed in legal sized envelopes. I’ll list all the lovely free fonts used in all printable items at the bottom of this post.
Along with the rustic-vintage-music theme the colors they chose were yellow & gray. We gathered wild flowers & massive amounts of Queen Anne’s lace. It was in full bloom on every county road surrounding our house.We used loads of mason jars, burlap, twine & round pieces of wood.
All the ladies in the wedding party wore lace Toms including the Bride.
The water bottles each had their own special label & were displayed in an old washtub for guests to help themselves.
It was a warm/hot August day, but no rain! Thank you, Lord! The guests from Texas weren’t put off by the heat at all, but those of us who live in Indiana weren’t thrilled about the humidity. The Father of the Bride escorted her down the isle through double rustic wooden doors. A beautiful bride carrying her vintage lace parasol was enough to make this proud wife & momma start crying from the very beginning of the ceremony. As they made their way down the isle a guitar playing in the background set the mood as she was about to be given to the groom. This all created the perfect setting for a flood of emotions & memories to take over my heart & cause me to smile-cry-laugh-pray all at once.
We made fans with the wedding program printed on them to function as a way to keep cool & informed. I believe everyone who helped prepare decided once we were done they didn’t want to see another pair of scissors for a long time! Even though I’m extremely critical of all my handiwork, I do have to admit I’m proud of how these turned out. In fact, I’d say I’m pleased with all of it especially knowing they loved everything too:)
I found a State font that helped me create this little sign. I placed in a frame to add to their welcome table for wedding guests.
