Modern and Nontraditional
As seen on Martha Stewart Weddings
This dreamy couple has such fresh and impeccable taste. I just followed their lead and tried our best to bring their vision to life. Greenery played such a big part at the wedding and became the main focal point. I illustrated the exact greenery wreaths that would be hanging over the table. We also used vintage stamps—one from New York (where the groom is from), another from Colorado (where the pair lives), a third from France (where AJ has lived), and a four-leaf clover stamp (for their Irish heritage).
The couple had food trucks (awesome!), they didn't want the tables to feel empty or have paper plates and plastics, so we hand-painted place settings. The painted placemats that did triple duty as place cards and menus, too. Even the sprigs of greenery differed by place settings. They became individual pieces of art at every chair.photography: Lucky Malone Photography, Location: Blanc. Day-of event planning: Tandem Events.

Lana is pure magic. When I was planning my day I couldn't think of anyone better to pull together my paper details masterfully. She painted my invitation suite as well as placemats which became the focal point of my tables. We opted for food trucks so we didn't have formal place settings, but I didn't want our tables to be bare. I brought the idea of placemats to Lana and she made the most amazing works of art that were both elegant and full of personality. Every guest at my wedding commented on the invitations and the placements, noting how amazing and unique they were. Not only is she extremely talented, she is also the most wonderful person to work with. She listens intently, approaches every project with excitement and makes you feel like your event is as important to her as it is to you. I cannot gush enough about this powerhouse woman. If you want something special and different, Lana is your gal.
