Melanie & Michael | Real Wedding

Throwback to Melanie and Michael’s fairytale wedding at the scenic Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank, New Jersey overlooking the Navesink River.

Their light and airy wedding color palette of mint green, pops of pink, and silver set the tone beautifully for their romantic, Princess themed wedding and celebration to follow. Unique glass vase centerpieces dressed the tables in pastel colored flowers adding a soft elegance to the dinner reception and mimicked Melanie & Michael’s wedding style flawlessly.

I remember my conversation with Melanie about her wedding stationery and us working closely together to turn that vision she had into a tangible design, reminiscent of her theme. An element of surprise that captured our attention the most was that Melanie and Michael were actually having a horse and carriage at their wedding, courtesy of Dream Horse Carriage. You cannot get any more Princess Fairytale than that! 

We just had to use this concept throughout their wedding stationery and that’s exactly what we did. Melanie and Michael’s pocket-style wedding invitations were designed as if you were opening up a storybook to read about a princess and her prince. The antique, vintage-like border framed their invitation wording like a page out of a fairytale with a horse and carriage design elegantly placed to set the tone for their special day.

Their wedding design theme and style carried over to the day-of Ceremony & Reception Stationery with matching water bottle labels, ceremony programs and most clever, a menu and thank you card duo. Unique and thoughtful details were equally important to Melanie, by adding her very own personal touch- guests will feel extra special, are sure to remember, and will chat about her wedding to their friends and family for years to come.

Melanie & Michael’s wedding day was simply elegant and now they live happily ever after!
