Here are a few fun facts about today's wedding: Melissa and Adam chose the song "The Promise" from the movie When in Rome as their first dance, and about one third of the guests were redheaded (just like the groom)!
When Melissa attended the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show, she found inspiration at the Great Dixter House & Garden booth, which showcased the work of its drying barns. She decided to incorporate large dried floral and grass arrangements into her wedding, and interpret the harvest in an uncommon way.
Their fun stationery pieces were "uncommon" as well. Their quirky save-the-date shared an interesting backstory about the groom. Soon after they started dating, Adam's friend was deployed to Iraq. Adam vowed not to cut his hair until he returned. His hair quickly grew into a gigantic afro -- something he was proud to sport as part of a personal "Fros for Bros" campaign. His expanding hair also inspired a theme of their wedding -- "love grows" -- and an illustration of his hair transforming into a large, orange heart appeared on the save-the-date, wedding favors, and photo guest book.
The more formal invitation suite, designed by Starshaped Press, was letterpressed using antique metal and wood type, and the response card included a line for song requests.
