- Wedding: October 2010
Early on in the planning process, we set the theme of Eat, Drink and Be Married for our early October wedding to pay homage to how we met and our love of food and wine.
My sister designed a vintage, slightly Art Deco logo that incorporates a vintage fork/spoon in a glam shape. We’re echoing the shape and vintage fork/spoon throughout all the elements of the wedding. We were also inspired by our venue Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley, CA, which is equal parts rustic and vintage glam. I really wanted our invitations to set the tone for what our guests can expect at the wedding.
So without further ado, here are the details.
