Erin & Marshall 09.06.08 - Part Three {Spring Lake, Michigan}

I haven't had a chance to post all of the AMAZING images Studio 131 and Brandy J Photography took of Erin and Marshall's September wedding and stationery so I thought since I just submitted their wedding to The Knot's 2nd Annual Real Wedding Awards that this would be the perfect time to show everything off :)

The gorgeous rings and bridal bouquet by Skeeter Parkhouse (the bride's cousin) at Eastern Floral in Grand Haven, Michigan on top of the bride and groom's pocket invitation.  All handwritten calligraphy was done by me :)
A full view of the charcoal pocket invitations with matching metallic eggplant envelopes.
The top half of the invitation when opened and the wrap-around label addressed envelopes.  The couple's fun "EM & ME" monogram continued throughout all of the wedding's details.
The bottom half of the invitation when opened - it held the Directions and Reception inserts as well as the RSVP postcard.

An amazing shot of the tear-inducing ceremony off the coast of Spring Lake in Michigan.
Coordinating programs.
The super hot bride and her smokin' bridesmaids - Erin's gown was Allure and the girl's dresses were by Dessy.  I LOVE their fun sunglasses that they donned after the ceremony!
The handsome groom in a tuxedo by Men's Wearhouse with his gorgeous bride!
This is hands down my favorite shot EVER !  Erin looks so amazing - hair and makeup by Red's Salon, Giao Nguyen veil (WHICH I LOVE!!!) and earrings by Monet (purchased at Macy's). 
The handwritten escort cards - the guest's last initial was faded into the background making it easier to find their names at the reception.
The table numbers - I used charcoal pockets that we had left over - each table number had a lyric from a Smashing Pumpkins song (Erin and Marshall's favorite band).
Erin used these Thank You stickers and purple ribbon to add a little flair to the tea lights that were on each table.
The place cards were my favorite part of the stationery.  They were so much fun - the picture in each corner denoted the meal choice the guest made on their RSVP (cow = prime rib, chicken = herb-stuffed chicken, carrot = vegetarian lasagna, jumping kid = children's meal)!
Erin had the most amazing idea for her favors - these unique "old school records" were actually mix CDs!  The mix consisted of the song the couple chose as their first dance (The Smashing Pumpkin's "Luna"), as well as the first dance songs of many of their friends and family!!  It was such a great way to pull important people into the details :)
