Art Paper Scissors: Tell us about your wedding day. The date, place and any extra fun details you would like to share.

Kasandra: We got married June 30th, 2019, at Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant. It was a beautiful day down the shore; the sun was shining and the weather was warm, but the breeze gave way to a cool day. We arrived at the wedding on a trolley, which was a great time for our bridal party to get together and unwind after a hectic morning! Our departing guests also loved it and had fun singing songs to keep the party going even after the wedding!

Art Paper Scissors: How do you remember that special day? Any great memory that stands out?

Kasandra: To me, the day was simply flawless. The memory that stands out the most is my ceremony. Looking at my handsome husband speak words of love to me straight from his heart, surrounded by all those we love, was the most magical moment in my life.

Art Paper Scissors: What is your favorite part about being married?

Kasandra: My favorite part of being married is creating traditions; new must-dos for holidays and vacations has been so exciting. Also, the partnership that comes along with marriage; you become a part of a two-person team that can tackle seemingly anything.

Art Paper Scissors: Describe your wedding theme and feel in 3 words. Why did you choose this theme?

Kasandra: I would describe my theme as rustic, joyous and dreamy. Michael and I are avid hikers and we wanted to reflect that in our décor. We had various wooden signs, our cake resembled a birch tree and our cake topper displayed “love at first hike.” We also had soft tones which gave way to the dreamy look and every time we looked around the room, we were met with warm smiles.

Art Paper Scissors: How did you decide on your blue watercolor floral wedding invitations?

Kasandra: When planning the wedding we knew the colors we wanted were soft blue, mauve and white. Lisa understood our vision and showed us the blue watercolor floral which was exactly what we had envisioned. We couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out!

Art Paper Scissors: What design element or feature was a “must have” for your wedding invitations?

Kasandra: The design element which was a “must have” was the response card Mad Libs! We wanted something different, and for our guests to have fun with responding. Everyone loved the idea and the responses we got back were absolutely hilarious; truly a memory we’ll get to hold on to forever.

Art Paper Scissors: What advice do you have for other brides and grooms looking to incorporate their theme or personal elements into their wedding invitations?

Kasandra: Stick to your vision and bounce ideas off your partner! Michael was so helpful throughout the process and it was great to work out different ideas with him. Teamwork truly makes the dream WORK!

Today we are chatting with our May bride of the month, Cassandra Wood.

Art Paper Scissors: Tell us about your wedding day. The date, place and any extra fun details you would like to share.

Cassandra: Our wedding date was March 9, 2019. It was the absolute most perfect day from start to finish! We married at Saint Peter's The Apostle in New Brunswick, a very formal and traditional catholic wedding. After, we took a short ride to our wedding venue, The Palace at Somerset Park. This is where we excitedly continued our celebrations by eating, drinking and dancing the night away! 

Art Paper Scissors: How do you remember that special day? Any great memory that stands out?

Cassandra: How can I choose just one memory that stands out?! Every moment of that day was so special and so sentimental that it is so hard to narrow it down to just a few.

Waking up for the last time as a "Wolff" was so surreal and yet exciting. I had some great moments getting ready surrounded by my family and very best friends. However nothing that morning could compare to the first time I locked eyes with my husband as I greeted him down the aisle. After that moment everything was so special because even though we have known each other for years, everything now had become our "first" again. Our first kiss as husband and wife, our first meal, our first dance and all of the other firsts as the new Mr. & Mrs. Wood that followed!

Art Paper Scissors: What is your favorite part about being married?

Cassandra: My favorite part about being married is that nothing at all has changed! We are still the same people that fell in love, just now we had given the ultimate commitment to one another.

Art Paper Scissors: Describe your wedding theme and feel in 3 words. Why did you choose this theme?

Cassandra: Rustic, romantic and chic.

My husband and I love the great outdoors. We pride ourselves on trying to travel the world, climbing on top of mountains, through caves and waterfalls. We also enjoy camping. These were our rustic influences. Although I love adventure, I equally love glitz, glam and twinkle lights, which play into the romantic and chic elements of our wedding. My husband may not be able to say the same about himself but he supports my passion for rhinestones!

Art Paper Scissors: How did you decide on your watercolor floral wedding invitations?

Cassandra: We decided our theme for our wedding invitations purely based on our personalities. We wanted to incorporate both what we love and who we are at the same time. That is how we decide our color scheme (maroon, hunter green, lace, burlap and rose). Lisa also designed our magnificent monogram with our iconic W intertwined between antlers.

Art Paper Scissors: What design element or feature was a “must have” for your wedding invitations?

Cassandra: I absolutely fell in love with our burlap and lace mix, along with our signature monogram W tag. Once Lisa presented those options to me, I knew we had to have it!

Art Paper Scissors: What advice do you have for other brides and grooms looking to incorporate their theme or personal elements into their wedding invitations?

Cassandra: Some advice I would give to brides and grooms: just be authentically true to who you are both as individuals and as a couple. Create something you both love together and whatever you choose will be perfect!


Thank you, Cassandra and Richard! We are so happy that you enjoyed every moment of your wedding day. Congratulations!
