  • Wedding Wednesday: Molly & Patrick's Sweet Farm Wedding

    The summer nuptials of Molly and Patrick were truly something special. Their celebration, held at Zingerman's Cornman Farms and planned by VLD Events, was absolutely beautiful, with sweet details that made the event all the more heartwarming. The team at Rock Paper Scissors created the pair's custom invitations and some extra fun day-of details, including a guest book, signage, menus, and incredible hand-lettered escort cards made from ears of corn! A big (albeit belated) congratulations to Molly and Patrick!  Thanks for having RPS be part of your special day! Below are some of our favorite photos from the event, shot by David Matthew Fiser. Ann Arbor Michigan Wedding corn place settings and surround seating We LOVE the way Molly and Patrick were surrounded by friends and loved ones as they said their vows. After the ceremony, guests were directed to the table of corn, where they used their eyes to find the ears lettered with their name and table number.

Ann Arbor Michigan Wedding Summer at Cornman Farm Seriously, how cute are they!? Molly and Patrick said "I do" against the backdrop of the farmhouse at Cornman Farms, with musicians on the porch and their guests surrounding them. Their gorgeous guest book / keepsake marriage certificate had hundreds of spaces for witnesses, so that all the guests could sign! (We also love the look of the gray wood frame against the green color choices.) Ann Arbor Michigan Wedding Ears of Corn and Cornfield Cornman Farms Nothing says Midwest farm wedding like an ear of corn! The setting had plenty of corn to use as a gorgeous photo backdrop, which tied in perfectly to the ears of corn that served as escort cards for the dinner and reception. Each ear was hand lettered with love by RPS' in-house graphic designer and letterer extraordinaire, Kristen Drozdowski.

    Meghan and David were an absolutely blast to work with. They opted for shades of matte gold and blush pink in the invitation suite for their gorgeous wedding, held at Zingerman's Cornman Farms in August. We jumped at the opportunity to create custom designs, featuring sweet dots, letterpress printing, and hand lettered details from Kristen Drozdowski. blush and tan lettered wedding suite with swiss dots The wedding suite was, in our humble opinion, absolutely swoon-worthy. It was a joy working with the couple to create a truly unique look - from the "night before" and "brunch" information cards, to the extra special piece with their two first names in extra large lettering. Wedding Menu Place Setting and Custom Welcome to Michigan Info Packet The suite's theme was carried through in various day-of details, including the reception menu and welcome packets for guests traveling to Michigan for the weekend!
