You are going to SO love today’s wedding. It’s the perfect combination of modern, traditional, DIY and all around gorgeousness. Jen and Andy tied the knot this past September at the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center and together put on an affair that would make any guest jump for joy…
Jen is a graphic designer and owns the paper studio, Farewell Paperie (which was actually launched from the fun she had in designing her own invitations above) with her best friend Lisa, so you know this affair was ALL about the pretty. Here is a little background info from Jen…
I wish I could say that what my husband called my “Creative Superbowl” was the wedding I’d always dreamed of, but since I’d never given it much thought before, we pretty much had to make it up as we went along. We knew these things going into the planning process: I didn’t want a banquet hall, he wanted to wear a classic tux, and if I had to throw another party a week later, my bridesmaids would wear their dresses again. Oh, and I wanted it to be modern and fresh and completely different than any other wedding I’d been to.
My husband and I are both creatives in the advertising industry, so the pressure was on to come up with something that was unique and something “artsy” just like us. Luckily, my best friend and Matron of Honor, Meleah Brown, happened to be a professional wedding coordinator in Atlanta (her studio is called c’est la vie), so combining her resources with the creativity of us and our multi-talented friends, we were able to make our modest budget go a long way.
More on the way!
