Wedding Wednesday: Ellen & Andrius

[WeddingMemories4.jpg]

Today I'm delighted to share the wedding of Andrius and Ellen, a friend and fellow artist! Although I didn't have anything to do with this wedding (well maybe a little), I'm excited to share it because of the gorgeous, unique details that Ellen and her mom, Cathy, came up with.

Ellen and Andrius actually had two weddings--one in Austin, Texas and one in Lithuania, where Andrius is from. These are highlights from their American wedding.

Ellen chose her “colors” because that seemed like a good place to start for an artist bride. She chose hues of hydrangeas: blues, teals, and greens. The wedding invitation introduced the color theme and the mood that Ellen and Andrius wanted to have for their wedding. The tactile letterpress invitation invited guests to come to the small chapel in the lower school which Ellen attended as a little girl and has many fond memories.

The couple welcomed guests with boxes filled with cookies from Sweetish Hill and sent them home with cds of Lithuanian music to remember the special day. The programs were covered in several different hydrangea-colored papers bound with satin ribbons. The bride’s cake wasn’t a cake, but rather beautiful pale-blue petits fours provided by their caterer, Eddie Bernal at 34th Street Catering. The bridesmaids picked their own dresses using hydrangeas as their guide for color. So everyone was awash in blues, greens, and teals ... except for one little accent. The shoes! Nice touch!
