When it comes to incredible wedding inspiration, Grey Likes Weddings is at the top of our list so when we were approached to provide linens for editor Summer Watkins’ wedding, we were thrilled! We’re just as happy to see her stunning wedding at Sunstone Vineyards & Winery, designed by Courtnie Purdy Fausner with gorgeous photos by Jen Huang is in the Winter Edition of Martha Stewart Weddings!
When Bride-to-be, Stylist, and Blogger Summer expressed an interest in our specialty linens for her wedding, it was clear that she had an incredible vision in mind. We loved watching that vision come together as we worked with her on linen selections – in keeping with her design for a crisp, classic wedding with preppy elements, she picked our appropriately named Summer Sugar linen! The luxuriously textured white linen was a gorgeous fit for Summer and Bryan’s chic and preppy wedding – their palette of emerald green and clean white paired beautifully with effusive coral, peach, and blush flowers by Lauryl Lane. An elegant swan motif was carried throughout their day – on their custom designed stationery designed by MaeMae & Co. and printed by Gus & Ruby Letterpress, in vintage bird shaped vessels on their dining tables, even fruit ice cubes floating in sparkling wine! The swan detailing was a perfect fit for their classic style, as well as symbolizing everlasting love. Summer even uses the swan as the signet for the Ladies’ Society of Matrimonial Finery on her blog!
Frequent NVLinens collaborator LVL Weddings & Events worked with Summer to plan each detail of the day – custom made boutonnieres with Bryan’s family crest, a ‘celebration station’ with noisemakers for guests to sound after the ceremony, even tiny bell escort cards for guests to ring when the bride and groom were announced! The wedding day wouldn’t have been complete without fabulous styling by the bride, of course! Bridesmaids picked their own blush gowns, but we have no doubt that professional stylist Summer had a hand in their wedding day looks. Her new husband looked dapper in a Hugo Boss tuxedo, while the bride herself was radiant in a custom Kirstie Kelly gown. Even her shoes were a perfect nod to their wedding day look, with chic green and white striped Badgley Mischka heels!
