I was contacted back in August by a bride in California interested in our DDOTS Constellation Shadow Art Cards as seating cards for her September 13th wedding.
This would be a very special celebration - the bride and groom each gave up their own last name to create a new family name: NOVA!
The evening's entertainment included two telescopes for star gazing including the assistance of a local astronomer with the star theme sprinkled throughout the family celebration.
I sent several samples to help visualize colors, finishes and styles.
Here are some of the custom Nova Wedding Cards I created for this very special occasion - check out our line of event stationery at our Etsy Shop!
The Table Numbers
Instead of traditional table numbers, the couple chose constellations that would be seen in the night sky the evening of their wedding to represent each table at the reception. Each constellation was created by hammering dots to represent each star - the size depicting the brightness - allowing the light of the room to shine through each table number. The classical line drawings and the name of each constellation was hand printed and embossed creating a shimmering, permanent finish.
The Seating Cards
The front of each seating card was made matching each guest to their table number including each hand printed name in metallic ink in a font coordinating with the theme of the wedding invitation.
The back of each guest card was hand embossed with the couple's new family name and wedding date - making each personalized constellation card the perfect wedding favor!
The Menu Cards
The seating cards' color represented the guests' chosen entree to assist the catering staff. I then created special 5X7 menu card for the wait staff as a menu key. Each hand embossed in metallic silver with the entree, wedding name and date.
The Table Tent Cards
Hand printed and embossed 2.5"X7" folded tented cards with the name of each table.
I was delighted to help this brand new family celebrate their new lives together and wish them lots of love, happiness and many more starry starry nights!
