Most commonly seen, Gatsby weddings are done in black and gold but wait until you see this stunning navy and gold Gatsby wedding! Katherine (Kat) and Barjes live in New York and they executed this navy and gold Gatsby wedding theme to a “T”! Every detail they picked was cohesive and sophisticated. The navy blue and gold color palette is simply sophisticated! These colors looked awesome on their stationery! They went with our Jacqueline Collection for their wedding invitations and their suite included invitation, rsvp, information card, and gold envelopes with addressing in our Digital Calligraphy. They swanked up their invitations by choosing to do everything in metallic finish, as the shimmer really glams up the look and feel. Their ultra swanky venue, Swan Club, was the perfect space for their navy and gold Gatsby wedding. So many great captures and detail shots by Michelle Jonne Photography. My personal favorites from their photo gallery are the formals taken in the outdoor courtyards with all the green, perfectly manicured shrubs. And I must say, having your fur baby participate in your wedding ceremony is priceless! It’s also a lot of fun because you get to accessorize! Stay tuned for our next blog post where we will feature a “Questions & Answers” section to continue this real wedding story. There you will find out where Katherine and Barjes found their fur baby’s cute neck collar accessory and answers to many questions we had for the couple! After seeing all their wedding photos, you may want to have a navy and gold Gatsby wedding!
Also, I love hearing what couples have to say about their wedding day, so here is a “snip-it” from Katherine and Barjes:
Where to begin on this. After a honeymoon phase shortly after our engagement we couldn’t agree on what to do for the wedding. I wanted a destination, Barjes wanted local. After lots of back and forth and realizing there wasn’t going to be a budge on the destination, I jumped on the New York wedding bandwagon and we started to search for a wedding planner shortly after. Planning this wedding was time consuming, sometimes exhausting, at times challenging with family, but we met some amazing people along the way and it was also an incredible experience for us. Barjes’ 105 year old grandmother traveled from Ecuador to our wedding. We had lots of family and friends travel from all over the United States to come spend this day with us and we learned a lot more about ourselves and each other along the way. We wouldn’t trade this in for anything, not even the beach!
