Real Wedding – Gatsby + Calligraphy

We loved seeing this real wedding featuring an absolutely dazzling Bella Figura bride and her dapper groom on Style Me Pretty recently. They planned a Gatsby inspired affair, traditional, black-tie, and completely stylish. (Check out her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta lace dress and headpiece!) A garden wedding was followed by an indoor formal seated dinner, all filled with romantic details. Our Classic Calligraphy letterpress invitations set the stage, with gorgeous calligraphy from Bella Figura calligraphy Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill showcased throughout their stunning celebration.

 

Inspired by their venue, the Burlingame Country Club, they let their love of romantic flowers and letterpress lead the way when planning all of the details. The bride shares, “I chose the most amazing French florist to create our garden setting with big romantic fluffy arrangements in the softest shades of cream, peach and lavender. Being a true lover of stationery, I knew I had to have letterpress. Our save the dates showcased two lovebirds, an element that would also be featured on our wedding day with two live doves in a fairy-tale birdcage decorated with ferns and full blooms…We tried to incorporate all the things we found to be beautiful to us as a couple while keeping it a classic and timeless soiree. With an amazingly talented and fun disco band, beloved family and great friends, our wedding was complete with surprise appearances from an enchanting fox; a family of deer and of course, our two lovebirds. Looking back, I truly wish I could plan a wedding every year! It was the most incredible experience and undoubtedly the greatest day of our lives.
