Rustic Summer Wedding Inspiration in St. Charles, MO

At the end of last summer we had the pleasure of being part of a styled wedding shoot led by Courtney of CMS Photography, LLC, and organized and planned by Allyssa of Allyssa Elaine Events. Arriving at the location that hot, muggy August evening, we found several talented St. Louis wedding vendors, as well as a couple dozen local photographers in a beautiful clearing next to a lake. The atmosphere at this shoot had a fun party vibe, which was perfect for the rustic, summer garden party inspiration Allyssa and the other vendors had pulled together.

Mauve and Gray Boho Wood Grain Watercolor Wedding Invitation Suite

For the invitation suite, we were majorly inspired by a recently released paper that has the look and feel of real wood grain. We designed a custom invitation enclosure featuring this new wood grain paper, accented with a shimmery mauve belly band, white twine and monogrammed tag. The invitation, response card, and details insert all featured watercolor illustrations of late summer florals and calligraphy and hand lettered-inspired fonts. Our favorite part might be the watercolor blooms peeking from inside the envelope on the custom envelope liner.
