Anne and Ross: Georgetown Wedding

One of our favorite guestbook customizations requests is when couples ask us to draw their beloved pet into their picture. We got to do that for Anne and Ross, who married at the gorgeously modern Ritz Carlton in Georgetown, and gave their wedding several fun touches that centered around Bridgett, their beautiful bull terrier.

Bridgett walked Anne down the aisle, topped the wedding cake, and even showed up on Ross's cufflinks!

The Ritz Carlton, with its industrial brick and clean lines, provided the perfect backdrop for Anne and Ross's sleek wedding decor. Sleek metallic silver met accents of blue and orange. Strung lights complimented the spare space. We especially love the silver animals adorning their reception tables and the bold cheeriness of their orange florals.

For their Bleu de Toi guestbook, Anne and Ross chose the "Custom Couple Balloon" with a drawing of Bridgett added in! 

Thanks so much to Jessica Schmitt Photography for these lovely pictures. To see more of Anne and Ross's wedding, check out Jessica's blog.

Kirsty and Alec: English Countryside Wedding

Kirsty and Alec were married at the charming and historic Tythe Barn in the Oxfordshire countryside. Built in the 14th century, this estate includes a Manor House and, of course, the authentic thatched-roof barn with its original wood beaming.

For Kirsty and Alec's custom Bleu de Toi guestbook, we drew the Tythe Barn itself! Guests left multi-colored fingerprints on the "lawn" in front of the barn. The result is a whimsical piece of art, with the fingerprints reminiscent of a field of wildflowers, or wedding confetti, or butterflies, or any other colorful, joyful thing. 

We love how this project turned out! Congratulations on your lovely wedding, Kirsty and Alec! We really enjoyed working on this special custom piece.
