A Touch of Sparkle for Shanon + Troy

Well, Happy New Year, Giddy Ink fans. It's high time we share some pretty stuff; wouldn't you say? We have so many fabulous new goodies to share right now, but today we're in the mood to show off these shimmery beauties we created for Shanon and Troy's big day.

Here's the story. Shanon and Troy had planned a traditional Methodist wedding that captured their personalities with subtle elegance and made their guests feel special. Upon meeting us, Shanon had already picked out her dress and her bridesmaids’ dresses which donned a timeless paisley motif and rhinestone detailing. Their gold, silver and champagne color palette inspired us to create something soft, classic and very chic.
So, we created this radiant design for their day: gold and silver ink on opal paper finished with rhinestones. We paired polished paisleys from Shanon’s dresses and linens with the Celtic cross from Troy’s wedding ring—a nod to his Irish roots. Then, we sealed it all up with a stately Celtic-inspired wax seal.
This design and the coordinating programs, menus, escort cards, and signage were the perfect marriage of two people and their distinct styles. They also show just how much a common design theme can really bring it all together. Thanks to Tracy Abston for capturing and sharing these beautiful shots from the wedding and reception.
Congratulations, Shanon and Troy! Working with you was such an honor.
