Blue and White at Bristow

March 11, 2023

Or, Explore

Allie and Derek chose such a beautiful venue when they selected Bristow Manor for their wedding last fall. We started with our Semi-Custom Envelope Liner suite, and personalized the text, fonts and colors to fit their design style. We painted their venue as well as a monogram, and used both throughout the event to tie everything together.

Speaking of using their monogram, my favorite use was probably on their cocktail napkins. Custom beverage napkins at your reception are an easy and inexpensive way to add more personalization to your wedding.  You could include a fun phrase, your name and date, your monogram, venue portrait or even a pet portrait, with the words “I Do, Too!” as my husband and I did on ours!
