Kentucky Derby inspired wedding invite | photos by Jessica Antola | 100 Layer Cake

There are a whole lot of things happening in the upcoming few days/week. Cinco de Mayo on Sunday, Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and then there is the start of the Kentucky Derby this weekend. Enter Biz + Micah’s Saratoga Springs wedding. Their derby-esque wedding was beautifully designed (hello, Cherry Berry Paper wedding invitations), there wasn’t a detail left untouched by pretty calligraphy or a pretty pattern, and simply put, the photos by Jessica Antola completely caught our eye after sneaking a peek in Martha Stewart Weddings that we just had to share.

Oh, you guys know how much we love a guest tote bag. This one (ordered through Bagmasters) went hand in hand with the theme and welcomed guests with a handful of goodies like a newsletter of all the best spots to check out in the area, Saratoga chips & water, tickets to the races, and a booklet of betting tips.

Ribbons as escort cards were a must, and we love how classic and big they looked in various b&w patterns.

Here’s an idea you’re going to want to steal! They served up their signature cocktail, a “Dark & Stormy”, in keepsake glasses with the cocktail recipe on the back. Um, genius!
