The gorgeous sunwashed rustic venue of Meadow Hill Farm feels like you stepped into the Tuscan countryside. Their gorgeous cocktail garden and lush landscape is such a beautiful setting any time of year. It was the perfect place to have an intimate Italian garden feel in colors of oranges, golds and greens.
For the invitation, I wanted to keep a soft washed look with fresh herbs and a rustic feel. I first drew washes in hues of yellow and oranges and added a bit on the top and bottom and then a full wash on the back. Each piece had a different herb on it that I drew. I used an asymmetric alignment for the pieces for a fresh and casual look. The edges were deckled to complete the rustic look.
Copper menus at each place setting also carried the herb illustrations through the tablescape. For the place cards, we wrapped a piece of brown paper around a baguette with calligraphy at each place.
The seating chart was very fun to create. Tiles that were reminiscent of sun-washed colors were placed in a small trellis folded out. Each tile had calligraphy on it with a table number tile in the center. The tiles was surrounded by moss and bits of florals. The cake design from Copper Whisk Cakes was a reflection of the tile design which pulled in those colors and elements.
Every aspect of this was airy and dreamy, simply beautiful! This was a styled shoot where Nashville creatives in the event industry came together with a vision to create something in our own styles.
