Our Ceremony Programs

by

As we anxiously await our wedding photos I thought I might blog about our wedding programs.  This was the trickiest piece of our entire suite for me to conceptualize and design.  Wedding programs can be executed so many different ways that even I found the options to be overwhelming and I print wedding related stationery […] Read more…

For the fashionista finds this week I think this photo from the Vogue Italia shoot by Tim Walker called “A Play of Dots” is incredibly apt.  Don’t you just want to take this room and make an invitation suite out of it?  Well, I do!  I don’t even remember where I came across this image, […] Read more…

Alex’s Wedding Present #2: Nerd Poetry

For the second piece of Alex’s wedding present I decided to letterpress a nerd poem, since we are both major nerds deep down inside.

Elise and Brandon: Mapping the Invitation

by

We love maps over here.  I rave about them as much as possible because they really do personalize your suite and as Martha has told us a million times, it is all about details and personality!  Maps are just one detail with TONS of personality.  This is why I was SO excited when Elise contacted […] Read more…

Alex and I got married less than two weeks ago. I can’t believe I get to call her my wife now, it’s super exciting. We are still waiting on the professional pictures and when we get them I’m sure she will be posting away. The week right before the wedding was super stressful and we […] Read more…
