A Chinese Zodiac Animal Wedding at Blue Hill from Erik Ekroth

We have a gorgeous wedding for you today — and it was all planned and designed by one of our Wed 100 experts, Annie Lee! So here’s the story on this couple: Lin always knew she wanted to get married in upstate New York at Blue Hill at Stone Barns (Blue Hill is like a foodie’s dream restaurant meets idyllic countryside). So when Steve proposed, the couple invited all their closest friends and family to their favorite restaurant (and soon-to-be wedding venue) to announce their engagement! For their wedding day, the couple took inspiration from their Chinese zodiac signs with what they referred to as an “Asian rustic” theme. Chinese zodiac animals took the shape of topiaries, stationery motifs and even a cake topper! See all the gorgeous photos below shot by the fabulous Brooklyn-based Erik Ekroth Photography.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
