A Fine Wedding

I am so excited to share this real wedding with you, not only because it is styled so well, but because the bride and groom are both members of the FineStationery.com family!

Moira and Jason met at FineStationery.com a few years ago, and recently tied the knot in a ceremony at The Delaware Natural History Museum. Moira planned with perfection throughout the couple’s engagement, as she has been working with brides for years now as our Wedding Supervisor. Jason, FineStationery.com's Technical Support Specialist, contributed to the planning in many ways and had the great idea of hosting the wedding ceremony and reception at such a fun venue. Moira and Jason both said that the natural beauty of the museum was their inspiration for the day, and used the rich browns and vibrant greens for the color palette when it came to flowers, the invitations, and decor. Adding to the FineStationery.com fun, our Senior Merchandising Specialist, Jennie, baked the most beautiful and delicious cupcakes and mini cake in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.

Moira and Jason’s wedding was truly a beautiful reflection of the couple’s style and taste. The bride and groom both agree that the vows they wrote and recited to each other were the best part of the whole day. After they danced the night away with family and friends, the blissful newlyweds enjoyed a long trip through Europe for their honeymoon.

For the invitations, Moira fell in love with an espresso colored card stock by Crane & Co., and chose eye-catching ecru engraving and a bright green envelope liner. Moira helps brides choose their wedding invitations every day, and has loved this particular style for years (even before Jason came along!)

The cupcakes that a fellow FineStationery.com employee baked for the occasion were offered in delicious flavors, selected by Moira and Jason.

Place cards were set out on small mirror tiles, and held up by multi-colored and sized stones as a nod to natural history.

Instead of numbers, each table was given a name. Since Jason is a huge science buff, the tables were all named after famous scientists.

Gorgeous green and white blooms filled the center of each table, while actual artifacts shared the space. The couple even said their vows in the dinosaur gallery!

Congratulations, Moira and Jason!
