real wedding: elizabeth and kevin

We LOVE being able to share real weddings because we work with the most amazing couples- they always have awesome wedding pictures that are so full of love. And when it’s a family real wedding… well, that’s a real treat for us! Elizabeth is our cousin and we had a blast working on their wedding paper!

You may remember our posts about Elizabeth and Kevin’s pre-wedding festivities (the engagement party and Elizabeth’s bridal shower) or spotted their wedding invite on Oh So Beautiful Paper:

These gold + cream beauties were letterpressed by Gilah Press… we couldn’t stop touching them! Inspired by Elizabeth’s dress, we incorporated pretty lace details: a blind impression of a lace pattern on the paper pieces, and an elaborate lace and fabric flower bellyband. Kevin (our newest cousin-in-law) recently admitted to us that he’d thought we’d had those bellybands and wax seals all put together in a bellyband factory somewhere… we quickly set him straight about the days of handmade labor that went into these :)

Now take a peek at Elizabeth + Kevin’s big day- we love the bridemaids in deep purple, and the amazing pre-reception waterfront shots from Mike B Photography:
