Catherine’s sister designed the invitation suite around the birch theme and as a surprise she carved Catherine and Scott’s initials into one of the trees on the main invite.  They loved it so much that it inspired them to continue the theme throughout the rest of the wedding.

Scott's groomsmen’s boutonnieres were wrapped in birch and all of the centerpieces used birch logs.  At each table one of the logs had their initials cut into it so guests had fun searching for and finding the initials on the centerpieces. Just like they'd hoped, the birch bark allowed Catherine and Scott to add a casual feel while still keeping their event formal. Such a beautiful and natural idea!
