I'm soooo excited! My younger brother Miles is a graphic designer
and student at Benedict College in South Carolina and jumpstarted his own company called Mighty Gesture, Inc.
Despite his hectic schedule in between shoots and projects (he is an AMAZING photographer and visual media artist) he has created special playbills for Patrick and I for our engagement party. I am soooo happy with the way everything is turning out. He is a genius.
Because our venue
is the Historic Douglass Theatre in my hometown, where people go to watch movies, concerts, you name it- we wanted to play up the fact that our first date was at the movies, and one of our favorite dates was the Atlanta Jazz Festival last year to celebrate my FH's birthday, and highight just how much we really love music.
Our theme for the engagement party is "It's a love story" and we will be playing up the movie theme.. of course as Bride
and Groom, we are the leading roles.. our wedding party are our "All-star supporting cast" and there are playbills that have all the important wedding info: wedding cast names and roles, Save the Date info, and a keepsake playbill all about the engagement party that will be part of the decor. We are using the 8x10 photos from our engagement shoot to be our centerpieces on the table and I've hand painted photo block holders in our wedding colors to coordinate the tables.
To further play up the theatre/ all-star cast theme, We will have a red carpet for the wedding party to walk down as they are announced and our photographer will be "paparazzi" capturing their pictures. We will have an autograph moment of the evening where everyone can mix and mingle to get to know each other.
I made VIP Passes for my entire wedding party down to the ushers and hostesses to distinguish them from the other guests, and everyone has been asked to wear purple..
Because we love music so much, our guest book will actually be vinyl records that we can keep and frame in our home as part of our decor.. I'm about to cry just thinking about all the special people in my life who will be there to help celebrate with us!
I can't wait!!!
