Minneapolis Wedding by Laura Ivanova Photography + A Milestone Paper Co.
January 13, 2011

We positively get giddy over pretty paper around here and A Milestone Paper Co. brings us to the brink of delirium with their gleeful designs!  You can't go wrong with a sweet palette, die-cut swirls and perfect branding throughout your wedding.  I love when a designer can create a vibe right from the moment the invitations are sent out all the way to the end of the party!  And this wedding by Laura Ivanova Photography has a modern and merry vibe written all over it!  Check out the full gallery for even more inspiration!

The wedding is full of tastefully done, vibrant contrast!  It was a lively mix of traditional, formal and modern fun.  Kristi’s gorgeous, elegant formal hair and makeup choices are perfect with and her modern, fun dress.  The reception venue is full of old elegance, but has been updated with gorgeous touches like the large barrel shade chandeliers.  Crystal details and largely white floral arrangements with touches of lime green captured the traditional elegance, and looked lovely with teal linens and green chair sashes.

Although the ceremony, a full catholic mass, was traditional right down to the bag piper, Kristi and Kevin were sure to pack plenty of fun into the day as well.  They burned CDs with their favorite songs for their guests and mailed them shortly before the wedding in a CD mailer with a custom designed label to coordinate with the invitations, with a note saying “We’ll see you on the dance floor”.  They incorporated huge white balloons into their photos, and they even had teal martinis for their guests.

For their paper goods we created a custom monogram and had it laser cut out of white metallic cardstock to create a pocket into which the invitation, RSVP card and a map and directions card were slipped.  The invitation was mailed in a green metallic envelope and sealed with a large circular seal repeating the motif from the laser cut.  The program covers were also adorned with the laser cut image on teal stock and tied with a white satin bow.  The graphic, circular motif was repeated on the menus and place cards.

So much thought, style and love went into this day!
