Checkerboard Fusion Album: Inspired by Invitations, Part 2

Next up in our series showcasing our fantastic collaboration with Checkerboard, is a soft and romantic design inspired by the "Harmony" collection from the Fusion Album.  The invitation itself has a very classic feel and the floral accents give it a softness and femininity that I wanted to carry through to the tabletop.

 There is no time like the present to acknowledge the importance of font selection. I am CRAZY about fonts and choosing just the right one can truly set the tone for your celebration. I personally look for script fonts that have a very thin point/weight and that have a more calligraphic/hand drawn feel. The font used for the bride and groom's names is what initially drew me to this collection.

Elements like the gold chiavari chairs, neutral colors and crystal candlesticks give this look a classic vibe, whereas the geometric accents on the linen and china along with the use of a stemless wine glass, offer a modern touch.  The drape of the napkin in the gold ring is a nod to the soft cinched ribbon on the invitation.

 A crystal, footed vase is filled with ivory garden roses, blush and pink roses, white hydrangea and hyacinth.

 The tone on tone polka dot tablecloth from Party Rental Ltd would be perfect for a daytime wedding; for an evening affair, you could use a champagne dupioni or bengaline for added formality. Mikasa provided the contrasting pattern rimmed china accented with a blush shimmer personalized menu.

 One of my favorite offerings from Checkerboard in this album are the personalized guest books. My clients always find it so hard to find a great one and this is simple and beautiful.  Behind it is an amazing keepsake platter that can help you bring a piece of your wedding design into your home.

Stay tuned for more from this fun photoshoot! Happy weekend!
