A vegetable and herb garden inspired the theme for the wedding. Aaron and I really value fresh, local produce and so we came up with the idea of harvesting herbs and veggies on site with all of our guests.
The Save The Date was a dried edible date inside a box with a note “Save me!” On the back side of the box contained the details for the wedding. Keeping in line with the food & harvest theme, the invitation was screen printed onto light gray tea towels. A local food wheel was designed as part of the invite, where it showed the different fruits and vegetables in season every month of the year in San Francisco. Wrapped inside the tea towel were a trio of seed packets in witty custom designed pouches and a set of engraved wooden utensils to be used as plant markers. As part of the RSVP, each guest was asked to submit their favorite summer recipe. A cookbook was ultimately made out of everyone’s recipes and handed out at the wedding as favors. Since I love sweets, I couldn’t pass up on handing out some homemade berry crumble bars. They were placed in printed muslin bags, labeled “Thank you berry much!” For the welcome table, we displayed everyone’s handwritten recipes. Instead of having a traditional guest book, we had our guests find their recipes and leave us a note on the back. As a result, we have a box full of precious notes & recipes we’ll treasure forever.
