DIY Showoff – The Nautical Wedding

So happy I got to help design for Lacy and Brice’s Nautical wedding a few weeks ago.

Lacy is a friend of mine since high school, and recently I got to help her create some designs for her wedding.  (Isn’t it great to have friends for so long!) We made invitations, table numbers, place cards, and a poster to sign. I also made a photo album to match as a wedding gift.

nautical weddingI designed the invitation in Adobe Suite and Lacy had them printed locally. For the table numbers and place cards, we printed it all on a home printer and cut them to size. To create the AWESOME gold texture, we painted gold / champagne gold onto cream paper. Lacy recruited her step-dad to make the rope knot balls that served as the base of the table number (or table icon in this case).

At the reception guest were asked to sign a poster, instead of the traditional guest book. The beautiful framed anchor was made from a flea market gold frame and white matte board cut to size and stapled into the frame. I then created a silhouette printer file from the anchor on the invitations, cut it from gold paper and mounted it to the matte board. It was a huge success!

I couldn’t be happier for Lacy, and so glad I got to help make her wedding day exactly how she wanted :-)

Here’s a showcase of the designs from Lacy’s Nautical Wedding

  4. I bet the wedding was beautiful. You certainly did a great job on all the all the wedding items. I know just what you mean about good friends. My best friend from grade school, starting in 2nd grade to be exact, contacted me today after not being in touch in over 20 years. It felt so great to hear from here. Life long friends are the best! BTW – it sounds like you do live right here in the Jax area. It’s nice to meet a local blogger.
