Style Me Pretty| Real Wedding: Malibu, CA {my sister's!}

As most of you know, my younger sister Alyssa got married last year, and I of course was so excited to handle all of her printed materials! We used our Manhattan script to take care of everything from programs, escort cards, menus, cocktail hour signs, restroom signs - everything - and we have tons of luscious photos to share from Steve Steinhardt!

The overall look was based on Western charm combined with casual elegance. The happy couple chose the gorgeous outdoor setting at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA and as you can see, Saddlerock provided a truly picturesque backdrop!

Beth Helmstetter was the planner and from day one she guided us through all our choices from tables, to linens, to the beautiful china my parents purchased for the delicious meal. She helped us pull together all the adorable items we sourced and made sure everything we chose was cohesive.

As guests headed to the venue, they were greeted with wood signs we made guiding the way.

Before the ceremony, guests were invited to sip iced tea and lemonade while signing the custom guest book or grabbing a pashmina for later in the evening.

For the programs, we created a bifold card with a design that matched the invitation set. We also tied each program with twine to tie that in as well. All the paper products were done with guidance given by Beth regarding the style and colors. I wanted them to coordinate with the invitations, of course!

After the ceremony, guests moved to cocktail hour where we included custom printed cocktail napkins, signs for the hors d'oeuvres, and a special bar sign with the bride and groom's choice signature drinks!

My mother and sister scoured etsy to find these worn horseshoes - the perfect touch. These rustic looking wooden signs were carefully placed in various places around the reception area. The cocktail sign sat right on the bar.

These adorable custom bark frames are a speciality of Beth Helmstetter's.  They capture the charm of the wedding perfectly! We love them in all their different sizes, both large, and small.

Before heading up the hill for the reception, guests located their table numbers with escort cards made of wooden tags tied onto Dublin Dr. Pepper bottles shipped in straight from the groom's home state of Texas! We also included a small sign with the story of the original Dr. Pepper bottling source in Dublin.

Everyone found their tables with our coordinating wooden table number signs and at each place setting was a letterpressed menu with the guests' names hand-calligraphed at the top.

For the table numbers, we chose to keep it simple with a larger version of the little escort tags. They are made of real cherry wood.
The menus were enveloped in a delicate lace band, and tied with twine, just like the invitations.

Combined with the florals by Holly Flora, it was everything the couple hoped it would be and just perfect!

With not a detail too small for this very important client, we also created signs for the restrooms and Beth and her team used the western font to stamp the bags for the favors created by a family friend.

It was such a beautiful day and so special in every way!
