Patience & Russell: Winter Romance

I was so excited to recently receive the gallery from my first wedding of 2024. Winter weddings are such a vibe, and this was a beautiful way to kick off the year!

Patience and Russell found me through my Instagram, and we worked together from their save the dates all the way through to their day of signage.

The Venue

Patience and Russell’s wedding took place on leap day - February 29, 2024 at The Coach House at The Ryland Inn. The Ryland Inn is a 220 year-old equestrian estate in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey. The Coach House is a little more rustic compared to the Grand Ballroom. The refurbished 200 year-old barn utilizes the silo and materials from the original barn, which makes the space super unique.

The Vibe

We really leaned into the winter feels, with our main color being a dark dark green. All of the details were incredibly romantic. Everything was whites and greens and dark and candlelight. Their ceremony was at night, and the lighting was so so perfect. How cute is their little guy in his suspenders and bow tie for the ceremony?!

What I Did

Invitation Suite

For the invitations, I used my watercolor of The Ryland Inn and gold foil accents, which tied in the same style as the save the dates that we worked on. A timeline card highlighted all of the day’s activities for their guests, and kept a cohesive look with the rest of the suite. All of the stationery was held together by a gorgeous skinny green velvet ribbon tied with a bow. And we finished it off with a stunning dark green envelope with white text. So pretty ahhh!

Seating Chart & Wedding Day Signage

For their seating chart and other signage, Patience wanted to elevate the elegance of the Coach House. For their welcome sign, we chose white acrylic with green lettering and my copper stand rental (gold and copper were their accent colors).

For their seating chart, we used a mirror with a simple gold frame and white lettering to sort of contrast the rustic vibe in the cocktail hour room where it was displayed.

We used clear acrylic for their other signs to kind of marry the acrylic of the welcome sign and the mirror look for the seating chart. Both their signature cocktails and “after the tone” (they opted to have guests leave a voice message instead of a traditional written guest book) signs had white lettering and gold accents.
