Tracy came to me a few weeks ago looking for table name cards that included a lighthouse and incorporated her colors of dark coral and lime green. Luckily, I had done hand sketches for about 25 lighthouses a few years ago. So, we were able to reuse those sketches and put a new spin on the table names for Tracy. Since Tracy couldn’t come see us in person, we mailed her cardstock swatches and she fell in love with the papaya color and decided to use it for the table number backing and text color. I just love how these turned out and it makes me want to go to the beach right now! Enjoy!

Jessica and Brandon came to us a few month ago to design their save the dates — you might remember, they were the “date prominent” design with the red rhinestones as the dots between the date – 08.29.09.
Well, we were so excited to design their invitations too! These invites actually match the bridesmaids’ dresses — which was the first thing that Brandon said when he picked them up a few weeks ago. I just love the elegant black look with the touches of bright pink and champagne. And, of course, there is a red rhinestone on the front! Enjoy!

One of the last items we usually design for brides is custom thank you notes. Sometimes we use their custom monogram or just a simple “Thank You”. Other times we use a fav photo from the big day and add text in their fonts/colors. Either way, these thank you notes really pull together all of the elements from the wedding and leave a lasting impression with your guests. “Thanks” to Leslie, Julie and Kristen…as their thank you notes shown below! Enjoy!

Jessica and Matt (along with Jessica’s mom, Christi — who owns Travel Bug and is the best travel agent out there — trust me, I use her for all of my personal and business travel) came to me a few months ago to discuss save the dates. At the time, they were getting married in July of 2010, but Matt is in the Army and found out that he would already be deployed by the time July rolled around….so, a Winter Wedding, it is!
For their save the dates, Jessica liked the prominent date style and incorporated their colors of deep purple and lavender. We even included accommodations information on the back of the save the date card. Jessica came in a picked up her save the dates yesterday and we designed their beautiful invitations. I can’t wait to see everything else come together. Enjoy!

I started working with Erin a few months ago on her table name tents. She wanted a “cool” monogram design at the top, with a classic look in her black and red colors. Also, her tables are all named after Bob Dylan songs — so unique! She fell in love with the table numbers and asked me to design her invitations too! I used the same monogram design from the table numbers and incorporated the music theme into her response card — save a dance for me! I just love how this classic looking invitation came together. Enjoy!
