Cheerful Spring Wedding In Yellow and Gray

Categories Real Weddings

Julie and James’s had an outdoor spring wedding at The Borden House in Raleigh, NC. Captured by Amy Allen Photography, and with tulips and greenery all around, their outdoor wedding was full of sweet sophistication! We love the billy ball boutonnieres and that there was a lady groomsman and that all of the ladies wore yellow cardigans. We also love the simplicity of this southern wedding and how Julie carried the pretty lace details of her dress to their wedding cake. The fun everyone had is obvious–and the outdoor checkered dance floor seemed to beckon the wedding guests all night long! Enjoy!

Purple and Yellow Real Wedding with Honeybee Theme

Categories Real Weddings

Ah, purple–an adored wedding color. And we too, are enamored with Jen and Mark’s purple and yellow wedding with its honeybee theme. Yes, a honeybee theme! We love that too–Jen and Mark went to a Blake Shelton concert and his, “Honeybee” song became their theme. :) First-look photos, adorable honeybees, a bold and bright color scheme, and a beautiful couple are all highlights from this simple and sweet wedding. Mark and Jen met and married at White Plains United Methodist Church in Cary, North Carolina–where Jen is a youth pastor and Mark, a lay leader. After the ceremony, they had a quick reception with light appetizers, cake and punch.

Shot by Brett Fox Photography, this wedding is incredibly sweet and really fun. Planning a purple wedding? We know you’ll enjoy this one.

Behind the Design: Ocean Breeze

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Ever wonder where the inspiration behind a design comes from? Welcome to Behind the Design–a series devoted to giving you the deets around one of our newest designs. Today’s feature centers around a Design Suite that embodies all things beach and destination wedding. Here’s our designer Jen, to give us her inspiration behind this fun and cheerful beach wedding design suite entitled, Ocean Breeze.

Jen, Graphic Designer at MagnetStreet

“The inspiration behind Ocean Breeze comes from that relaxed feeling of being at the beach and of having the ocean breeze blowing on your face. Seated on white ceremony chairs, guests would witness their favorite couple exchange their vows against a beautiful sunset. While dreaming of being at the beach, I also pictured a happy couple who want to kick off their shoes (or flip-flops) and have fun. With all of that in mind, I wanted to keep a simple look to this design and so created it with a clean background, a playful seashell motif, and a fun script to accent the organic shape of the waves.”

Color Monday: Artsy and Modern

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Reminiscent of last Color Monday, today’s industrial-style wedding, features a modern couple with an artistic flair and a love of color. This soft shade of purple is a definite complement to the sleek, stable look and feel of charcoal grey. Harmonizing with the purple, is sunflower yellow on the wedding invitation. Doesn’t it add a nice pop of cheeriness to the whole palette? Be sure to check out this personalized version of Honeycomb Cluster … the sweet Wedding Invitation + Thank You Card design featured in this board.
