Kate + Sam's Sophisticated Black-Tie Wedding at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club

Love stories that originate in college often carry a special charm, and Kate and Sam's journey from college sweethearts to life partners is nothing short of heartwarming. On the sunny afternoon of May 28, 2023, this lovely couple tied the knot at the picturesque Fiddler's Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Their wedding, steeped in classic elegance, was a beautiful celebration of their enduring love and the start of a new chapter in their lives.

The couple chose our Penelope invitation design in black ink, a timeless choice that perfectly matched the theme of their wedding. Complementing the classic design, they opted for an ice blue hydrangea patterned envelope liner, adding a touch of delicate charm to their wedding stationery.

The outdoor ceremony, overlooking the lush greens of Fiddler's Elbow, provided a breathtaking backdrop for the couple's vows. The chuppah was adorned with greenery and classic white florals, creating a serene and romantic atmosphere. Kate, the radiant bride, donned an elegant trumpet-style dress with delicate pearl button accents, echoing the pearls in her veil. She carried a bouquet of pristine white roses to complete her classic look.

Kate's bridesmaids were a vision in flowy ice blue gowns, while the groom and groomsmen exuded timeless sophistication in their black tuxedos. The black-tie reception, held in the grand Ballroom, was a sight to behold, adorned with an abundance of white florals that added an air of timeless beauty.

To maintain a cohesive look throughout their special day, Kate and Sam continued to use our Penelope design on various elements, including welcome signs, place cards, and menus. This attention to detail tied together the theme of their wedding seamlessly, creating a sophisticated and classic aesthetic that left a lasting impression on their guests.
