In order to play up this old-world, Victorian flair in a modern way, I have taken the Cameo portraits of the bride + groom to a whole other level. First, it was incorporated into the customized wedding invite in a nontraditional wedding format, and I am now branding the graphic to the wedding reception environment.

At the sweetheart table, each oval portrait will hang on their individual chairs.
When guests arrive at the wedding, instead of a sign-in book, they will sign-in on a poster that has been framed on an easel for the bride + groom as a keepsake. The graphic art seen below was inspired by the family's interest in genealogy and now this poster will be a tangible historical record of all the family and friends who were present to witness the union of Brandy + Tafari.

At each dinner place setting, there will be a gold charger with a ribbon tied favor box for each guest. In each box is a delectable sugar cookie with the exact same cameo portrait design to be made by Shabby Chic Cakes bakery. If you noticed, the black + white striped ribbon to seal the box is reflective of the striped envelope liner that was part of the wedding invitation set. No detail gets overlooked as you can see. I like to visually bridge all the elements from the printing of the wedding invite all the way down to the tablescape design.
On the gift card table, it will feature a collection of things and not all of the elements are being shown here. Instead of the standard gift card box with an envelope slot, we are using vintage inspired luggage. There will be 2-3 faux luggage boxes stacked on top of each other, and the top tier luggage case will be open where the cards can be placed. Along the other side of the table, there is going to be a casual set-up composed of a vintage clock, lamp, some books and green chocolate mint candies available in a singular apothecary jar. In addition, there is going to be an eclectic mix of black and gold frames montaged together of old family portraits from the bride + groom's families.
