Simply Rustic – Mr. & Mrs. Genest
Justin & Ashley wed in August with a backyard beautiful wedding. It was important to them that there were elements of both of them during their wedding. Justin wore a baseball hat because that was “him”. Their black lab, Dakota, was in the wedding and even curled up on the train of Ashley’s dress during the ceremony. The seats at the ceremony were wooden benches that Ashley’s Dad made from lumber milled from their family camp. Every little detail was rustic & simple, exactly as they had envisioned.
When talking to Ashley about what she was looking for in her invitations, she used keywords such as: simple, burlap, lace, rustic, tan, beautiful. It was important to Ashley & Justin to avoid getting caught up in the formal traditions of what a wedding invitation is “supposed” to be and to make it their own.
A note from Ashley: “I had a vision in my head of what I thought I might like my invitations to look like. I’m not really sure how she did it, but, Hannah saw my vision and made it come to life. She was so receptive to my ideas and made timely designs for me to look at. We received lots of comments on our invitations. It was different, and simple, and totally “us.” Hannah also made some wedding programs for us that were a huge hit. We even had some last minute changes and she accommodated us and had the design changed as soon as I told her. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I have our invitation framed in our living room. It symbolizes such a beautiful memory for us & I am so thankful to Hannah for her work to make sure everything was perfect.”
What an honor to work with such love. My favorite one-liner from Ashley was “I still have the same crush on Justin that I had in high school.”
