I’m so excited to finally share the photos of Danielle and Brian’s AMAZING wedding at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA. Now that is has been officially debuted on Martha Stewart Weddings, I don’t have to keep these photos (all from the talented Erin McGinn) to myself any more.
Emily Starr Alfano of MStarr Design designed this spectacular wedding, and I always love working with her because she has great ideas and lets me run with them. This one was especially up my alley because I grew up with a huge appreciation of contemporary art, spent a lot of my childhood in museums, and even minored in Art History in college. I loved the idea that my work would be showcased (probably for the first and last time) in an actual museum, and I loved taking abstract expressionism as an inspiration for all the pieces.
We stuck with this “brushstroke” idea and used it throughout, even in the lettering, which was also done with a brush. The invitation suite, which was so incredibly luxe with triple weight paper, letterpress, gold foil and colored edging, set the tone for all the paper throughout the wedding. (Since the invites were actually addressed and mailed while I was on maternity leave, the wonderful Li Ward addressed them and did such a great job.)
(This is the save the date (blurry in the background) and the rehearsal dinner invite – there were so many pieces to design for this wedding and I loved every minute of it!)
Can you even imagine what this space looked like in person? So gorgeous!!!
Congrats Danielle and Brian! You were such a pleasure to work with and I hope you loved how everything turned out as much as I did.
