August 5, 2008

Here are the last photographs and details from the oh-so-talented Viola Sutanto...owner and creative force behind the incredible invitation design firm, Chewing the Cud!

Tying back to our idea of "discovery", linen journals were placed in hand-stained crates that were decoupaged with photos of vintage food labels we took during our travels together. Guests are engaged in the process of "discovering" their tables as they identify their names and table grades.



Instead of numbers, the tables were named after characters from the story, with corresponding letter grades. I made the table runner that adorned the head table as a gift for Phillip. I printed our vows and favourite poems we had read to each other during the ceremony. My crazy bird illustrations appeared again on the runner.




The concepts of discovery and childhood memories continued at the dinner tables where treasure boxes revealed childhood trinkets and candid photos of ... wonderful conversation opener. Trivia questions on the menus kept guests entertained as they awaited their entree. The talented Rae Dunn ( created egg-shaped rocks and hand-stamped guests' favourite words.



Scandalous!We managed to sneak in a moment to make out at the phone booth before heading up to the Hilltop to join our guests. Apparently they love the same brand of humor as us.



In lieu of feeding back to each other, we squished macaroons. To top off the night, guests were delighted to discover Taiwanese and Indonesian sweets at the end of the night.



Thank you for letting us share our story!


I looooooved this wedding. So chic, so thoughtfully planned, so insanely gorgeous. Tomorrow, Viola is walking us through a few of the DIY projects that she created for her big day. Can't wait!!
