Wedding Invitation: Jeanette and Matthew


Jeannette and Matthew had a special story that they wanted incorporated into their wedding invitation – they were getting married the same day their parents had in 1983 (Sapp), and 1989 (Carco).  The live oak tree on the invitation tells the story in its branches, and the brown and green color palette blend perfectly.

Wedding Invitation: Creagh and Timothy

Creagh and Timothy’s invitation was my first one where I actually worked with a wedding planner, rather than a bride.  It was a fun and smooth process, which was probably helped by the fact that the wedding planner is a friend of mine.  The bride wanted a simple and elegant design.  The finished product is absolutely lovely:



Wedding Invitation: Diedra and Tyler

I was recently hired to design a wedding invitation based on the story of how the soon to be married couple had met.  Although it was quite a challenge to fit all of the words on one card (and make them look pretty), I was SO happy with the results!

Here is the sweet story-style invitation for Diedra and Tyler:



The Food

The food…oh my, was it delicious.  For our wedding, T and I decided to continue our “old fashioned and homemade” theme.  We enlisted friends, family, and a few people we had heard great things about to create memorable desserts for our reception.  A family friend, Sherry Bowling, did the catering.  She did such a fantastic job, and we are so lucky she was able to help us.  My best friend made adorable cake pops; my aunt made buckeyes, the popular peanut butter treat from my home state of Ohio; a family friend, Ann, made her famous caramel cake;  T’s mom made the chocolate ganache cake; my mom made her now-famous carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  Our wedding cake came from a local bakery.  And I can say, pulled from our freezer a year later, it still tasted very good!  We bought several cases of classic coke bottles, and Trader Joe’s wine and champagne.  I made custom labels for the wine bottles, and we used chalk boards to label the desserts.

Everything must have been good, because by the time we go inside to grab a plate of food, the only thing left from the dessert table was a half a buckeye on a friends plate.  She let me eat it.  :)

The Decor

Welcome to our wedding. I knew I wanted cotton incorporated into the wedding since T was born and raised in the south. The wedding has a homespun look (since my family made most of the decorations), and the colors were mustard, gray, and navy. Some friends of ours happen to be photographers. They did an incredible job capturing the details of our day.

The Wedding

Being married is the best.  I have never been happier, and love creating new memories with my best friend who also happens to be my husband.  I love you T!

Stay tuned this week as I revisit some of my favorite images from our wedding.
