What happens when two talented graphic designers get hitched? A beautiful wedding full of eye candy is what happens!
Jenn and Matt incorporated the story of how they first met into all of their wedding materials and their wedding day.
“Matt and I met in a college drawing class so we decided to mail guests a pencil as part of our save the date and each subsequent collateral piece utilized the pencil in some way. The invitation folded out to a poster and contained a connect-the-dots illustration. On RSVP cards, we asked guests to draw (or write) a message, which we displayed during our reception. Lastly, we collaborated with a relative to create our guestbook poster, which features a pencil illustrated portrait of us. Guests helped put the finishing touches on the poster by applying their fingerprints. “
Why did you decide to have your wedding in Frederick?
Matt and I moved to the Frederick area shortly after getting engaged and have fallen in love with the downtown area. We really enjoy the historic charm and the artistic vibe of the city. Also, since Matt and I are both graphic designers and love art, we wanted to have our wedding in a great art community. Frederick has such a great local arts scene and the Delaplaine is a wonderful visual arts center that we wanted our guests to experience.
What did you try and incorporate into your wedding that showed off Frederick?
The location of our ceremony along Carroll Creek made for a beautiful setting and really showed off the charm and great urban feel of downtown Frederick. We also wanted to incorporate several of the galleries and rooms of the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center into our wedding. The bridal party got ready in the Delaplaine’s library and the reception was held in the pavilion. We also had a photo booth setup in the Kline gallery and the guests were free to walk through several of the other galleries during the evening. Lastly, we used several local vendors because we wanted to highlight all of the talented professionals in the Frederick area.
What would you tell other couples who are planning a wedding in Frederick?
We loved the location of our ceremony along Carroll Creek and our reception in the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center. The staff at the Delaplaine were very helpful and wonderful to work with. Both venues provided a unique atmosphere and we would highly recommend them to other couples planning a wedding in Frederick.
