Alexandra and Steven, a book-loving duo, opted to incorporate their shared passion into their big day. They turned to their friend Lane Smith (a children's book illustrator) to draw elements of their stationery, which was then designed by Lane's wife. Family heirlooms were woven in, and one was even created—the needlepointed ring pillow made by the mother of the bride. Illustrations came back into play with the guest book-style station where attendees sketched and wrote on blank cards using a variety of pencils and pens.
