When working with clients and talking about their design style, we always ask them what they love and where their inspiration comes from. So many times the answers are right in front of us but we have to think about what it is that truly touches our heart and spirit. From the invitations to the wrapped votives, and from from the table cards to custom chargers, this special wedding filled with personal details was inspired by the love of literature.

The invitation is the first impression of your wedding. Remember that the style and design of your invite will set the tone for your special day. This book-style invitation was a perfect prelude to this literature-inspired day.

Vintage books acted as table cards – this was a special process as the bride and groom each selected their favorite literary pieces. Also adorning the tables were custom wrapped votives that displayed favorite passages, quotes and poems of the couple’s choosing.

Custom wrapped mini faux books were created for place cards and favor holders. Each book displayed the guest’s name on the spine while opening to their table name. Chilmark chocolates added to the delight of these mini books, with a mini scroll sharing the story of the couple’s favorite date to the chocolatier on Martha’s Vineyard.

Vintage books were incorporated throughout the venue (even hidden in the floral displays). Custom chargers were also created to incorporate the couple’s love of literature, they were also a keepsake for the bride and groom after their wedding day.

At the end of the day, the significance behind the details are what make the difference for any celebration. Whatever your love may be, whether it’s a color, pattern or favorite pastime, be sure to be inspired by your pieces and showcase your love whatever it may be.
