It’s not often I come across a detail that wow’s me. You know really hits me as something I want to remember because it’s just so lovely. This morning I was perusing Martha Stewart Weddings and came across Eric Fleiss and fashion stylist JoJo Cohen’s beautifully orchestrated wedding filled with amazing details including a custom dress for the bride by the late L’Wren Scott.
What I fell in love most with was the couple’s use of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wildly romantic love notes and quotes for some of their details. The invitation included a love note insert for guests on a square card that was originally written by F. Scott Fitzgerald to his wife Zelda: “You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest and most beautiful person I have ever known – and even that is an understatement”.
And then a perfect little pouch filled with fresh stephanotis and rose petals for guests to toss at the sight of the couple’s first kiss labeled with a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night. The couple also took various F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes and had them applied to the mirrors in the guest bathrooms so it was truly a running theme through various touch points of their magical day.

It’s details like this that make an event truly standout. You could also apply this detail with love notes from the groom to the bride or vice versa to make it even more personal to the couple. You can see more about this wedding here, along with the bride’s very special gown.
Wishing you a lovely week ahead,
