Eliza and Mike came to me with visions of a fun, one-of-a-kind wedding. Both of them have a keen sense of unique style and loved the idea of infusing humor and unconventional quirks throughout their wedding design.
Using their venue, the amazing Old Courthouse of Evansville as inspiration, we went to work creating a gothic-haunted-mansion vibe for their personality infused wedding.
Our first step in bringing their style to life was the custom design of their invitations and signage. Using Eliza’s love for haunting art and bats and Mike’s passion for music composition, we created several designs for their one-of-a-kind stationery suite and wedding signage. The gothic style gave guests a hint of the decor to come and using Mike’s own music composition was a subtle nod to the mystery and music of the night to come.
Taking a cue from the custom graphic design, we used real vines and branches to create beautiful and slightly creepy decor – perfect for a haunted mansion feel. Moss, botanical plants, ravens and moths all played a part in bringing this look to life. Antique silver platters, candelabras and green crystal goblets all worked to elevate the decor style to fit with the opulence of the Old Courthouse’s magnificent architecture.
For the fresh floral bridal bouquet, Eliza had Zeidler’s put together this amazing arrangement full of texture and nontraditional floral elements.
It was a joy working with Mike and Eliza and having the opportunity to bring their amazing style to life.
