A Lush Connecticut Affair...

Congratulations go to Alexa and Justin on their recent wedding! The fabulous affair was set against a lush Connecticut mansion overlooking the Long Island Sound. The theme was, well, vintage of course!

The mansion, ‘Eolia’ named for the island home of the Greek god of winds, was built in 1906 and purchased by Edward and Mary Harkness in 1907. Alexa and Justin enjoyed the manicured lawns and formal gardens which meandered throughout the grounds. Their Great Gatbsy-inspired affair was steeped in deep history, bejeweled gowns and lots of bubbly champagne!

For their stationery, the happy couple chose my "Nocturne" design. This 1920's invitation design featured a celestial star pattern surrounding a logo mark which housed an A and J. It was imprinted with shimmery gold metallic foil against obsidian paper stock. The couple chose a complimentary ivory and metallic gold foil for their set of vow books. I was able to incorporate their favorite engagment photo on the back of the save the date as well.
