When Turcan (pronounced Turk-en) first breezed into our studio with her loud, abrasive, New Englander self, it was like a breath of fresh air came with her. As a New England transplant myself (I still consider myself a Rhode Islander in many ways), I fully appreciate the transparency and authenticity that comes with Northerners, and I loved Turcan immediately. She was looking for a classic invitation with some major pops of awesomeness, and I think we hit the nail on the head. Her invitation was just featured on the fantastic Oh So Beautiful Paper blog (the only blog I actually read on a daily basis—you should, too). Be sure to check it out on OSBP, but we’ll also add a post soon with all the details of the invite (painted edge! custom liner! calligraphy!). Today we get the inside scoop of the wedding itself.
Here’s a look at Turcan and Ev’s big day… gorgeous fabulousness throughout! Take a breath and imagine you can smell the roses…
Is anyone else dying to stick a fork in that pie??!!
I think that what I love most about Turcan’s wedding and her invitation is that she used this great cobalt blue for a pop of surprise amidst a classic setting. I see so much gray, khaki, taupe, cream, neutral-based colors these days. Don’t get me wrong—that’s a totally beautiful look, too, but eye-cathing to see something different.
Thank you, Turcan and Ev, for letting us be a part of your big day. You were a joy and delight.
