plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Since Georgia summers can be hot and humid, Grace decided to have fans made for her guests to use.  She used side profile photos of her, Aaron and their two cats, and Julia Rothman turned them into green silhouettes, and added their wedding date.  They were then printed out and attached to wooden sticks to make fans.

Favors for the guests were a throwback to Georgia’s roots.  They included grits from a local farm, as well as a recipe for Shrimp and Grits.  The grits were packaged in a paper bag, and the recipe was attached to the bags with a fabric button from busy beaver button.

Grace had some vintage handkerchiefs left over from the invitations, so she decided to use the remainder of them for her table numbers.  She had numbers screen printed onto each handkerchief and then wrap and tied them to a bottle of water.

    I love the idea of giving food to make at home as a favor. At a wedding you eat so much that whatever food you get there is too much and that way when you get home you can be reminded of all the fun times at the wedding as you cook your meal!
    We did candles at my brother’s wedding.
