Eucalyptus Snowy March Wedding

Selena Kugler and Christian Myers

March 30, 2019

North Platte, NE

Selena and Christian were not expecting, nor hoping, for snow on their wedding day! But, we live in Nebraska and well, it snows here in April, and sometimes a freak time in May. So the second to last day of March is not off limits and Mother Nature decided to put on a beautiful show the day before their wedding.

I first met Selena while working on stationery for her sister Sarah’s wedding in 2017. Sarah and I were coworkers a few years prior and during the process of planning her stationery I got to know Selena and their mom, Susan, and they were so kind and fun to spend time with! When Sarah found out Christian was going to propose, she may or may not have told me about it before Selena was actually engaged. Of course I was thrilled because this meant I would get to work with all of them again.

Our first meeting included Selena, Christian, Susan, and Sarah - who had just let her family know she was pregnant - with twins! This family was experiencing A LOT of highs and it was fun to go along for the ride. I had the sweet joy of designing the cards Sarah gave her and her husband Jeff’s parents announcing they were pregnant with twins! It’s so special to know something before family finds out.

Anyway, back to Selena and Christian lol! They came in knowing they wanted to include eucalyptus on their stationery pieces and their colors were a deep green {bridesmaids dresses} and gray {guys’ suits}. For save the dates they did not choose to use a photo and instead went with a design incorporating the eucalyptus instead. They chose to mail an oversize postcard with a calendar on the mailing side.

Sarah was Selena’s matron of honor and threw her a fun BBQ gift card bridal shower … and of course, she had me design the invitations for that! I loved the idea of listing out a bunch of gift card ideas on the back side so that they would get gift cards that they would actually use.

For invitations they fell in love with the idea of a pocket for their invitations - one of my favorites these days because of the many options available. I used the same eucalyptus design from their save the dates on the invitations pieces, including a round sticker to close the pocket. The pocket also gave them the option to add a small rehearsal card for those guests that were invited instead of having to send out a separate invite later on.

Selena and Christian’s wedding photographers - Rachel + Rebecca - were so kind to share some photos from their wedding day with me. Below are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Getting Ready

Just look at the fun this wedding party had with the reveal of Selena’s look! And who doesn’t love a good dad kissing his daughter on the cheek photo?

Ceremony

Of course their ceremony programs also included the eucalyptus design that we used on their save the dates and invitations! And check out Selena’s gorgeous rose gold rings - love that they tied in a bit of rose gold in Christian’s ring as well.

Wedding Party Fun

I know they didn’t really want snow, but their photos are stunning!

Reception

Selena’s mom did an amazing job with the wedding decorations! Check out that kids only table - no adults allowed. And what a fun idea to have guests sign corn hole boards for their guest book. Every time they play they will be able to reminisce on their wedding day.

First Dance

I’ll end with one of my favorite parts of a reception - the first dance! The couple gets this special moment to just look into each other’s eyes and hold each tight and ignore everyone around them for just a quick couple minutes.

Thank You

Thank you to Selena and Christian for trusting in me to design your wedding stationery! It was a joy to work with you both and I wish you all the happiness in your marriage.
