Your Day Your Canvas

yourdayPersonalize your wedding with custom paper details

Despite living in our digital age with iPads, iPhones and hashtags, we are seeing a resurgence and popularity in paper at weddings. As brides look for a wedding they can truly call their own, many are looking at custom paper details. From the very first impression (the save-the-date) to the invitation itself, there’s an extensive list of other paper details to consider. 

The first step in a paper suite is determining the invitation design, motif or monogram. This can be done by working with a local stationery shop or custom paper designer. Brides can choose a color palate, specific weight papers, motifs like a palm tree or sea shell or work with a designer to create a custom monogram (a popular choice in the Lowcountry!). These are the elements that can be repeated throughout the paper details.

High School Sweethearts Tie the Knot

High-School-SweetheartsThis is the story of a Hilton Head girl and guy who were high school sweethearts. Since a high school love story rarely ever becomes more than that, it was only fitting that Blake Fraum and Jimmy Schmid’s May 2014 wedding reflect their fairytale.  Surrounded by their mutual friends and close knit family, the couple were married under the majestic oaks and stunning vistas of Colleton River. In a glamorous tented reception, guests danced the night away and celebrated in true style.  

The ceremony took place at the Dye Clubhouse at Colleton River Plantation on the lawn overlooking the river.  Fraum was escorted down the aisle by her father to an instrumental version of “Over The Rainbow” and says she’ll always remember and cherish the moment her dad gave her to Schmid.   

Since Fraum and Schmid have been together since they were 13, most of their family and friends were already acquainted and close friends, making the ceremony feel intimate and personal.
