The professional pics and video for this lovely wedding in Charlottesville by Eric Kelley Photography almost made me feel like a mother of the bride. My attachment came from the use of my Belluccia font, flourishes, ornaments and borders throughout the event. The real lovely Mother of the Bride, Deni Richards cleverly used it to create DIY projects to make her daughter Caroline’s wedding filled with darling personal touches.
With the added talents of Meghan Streit of Shindig Weddings and Events this talented team put on the wedding Caroline had always dreamed of.
When you check out the video keep in mind that there was a storm and resulting power outage during the reception. Eric and his videographer Adam literally saved the day with this lovely footage.
How sweet is this “Happy Tears” chalkboard sign resting by a container of vintage hankies?
The wedding program was simple and lovely. The flourished look of the Belluccia font added just the right touch.
While guests were waiting for the reception to begin, they were invited to participate in fun lawn games, Bocce and Cornhole.
This assortment of different sized chalkboards used for table seating made a wonderful display.
I love the way Deni used a simple folding technique and my Belluccia font and ornaments to make simple but unique printed table numbers.
Love this Something Borrowed, Something Blue sign!
I love these darling tags attached to the straws!
These Chalkboard “Mr. and Mrs.” signs are perfectly accented with gorgeous hydrangea.
The menu peaks out of the napkin with just a touch of live greens, while the other side uses my whimsical Belluccia ornaments and font to showcase the delicious food that was served.
To honor the parents and grandparents of the couple, Deni displayed items from their weddings in an assortment of Cloche Bell Jars. Each jar had an attached tag with the couples name and wedding date. What a lovely way to include special family members.
And how sweet is this idea of using personal family stories to go with items on the candy buffet!
Parting words from the wedding guests.
Deni even pulled off making this enlarged Just Married sign for the traditional get away car.
Deni did an incredible job with all of these creative and fun items. I’m amazed at all of the unique ideas she, Caroline and Meghan came up with. Their hard work and attention to detail really paid off. (FYI: Deni did made all of the signage using Microsoft Word!)
I’m so happy to see my Belluccia font being put to use by some of the very people I had in mind when I designed it: DIY Brides and their creative mothers. ( as well as invitation designers and event planners). This is proof that it really does give you a custom look for a fraction of the cost.
Many thanks to Eric Kelley for the use of these photos and Meghan Streit of Shindig Weddings and Events who worked so closely with Deni and Caroline to put on this amazing event. Be sure to check out both of their websites.
