I met lovely Amber and hilarious Sean through a referral. This fun-loving couple live in a charming home in Grandview Heights, Ohio. I was honored that they were willing to make the lengthy trip to my place in MY little charming neck of the woods. What a visit! Amber and Sean were so much fun and open to so many ideas (still, Sean made me promise that the invites would NOT look like a prom dress - lol). Since a busy couple planning a wedding couldn't be expected to hit the road and visit my office often, we made the most out of our time together and discussed all items needed for the big day.
First on the list was Save the Dates. Since Amber and Sean were passionate readers we started with a kernel of an idea - a pin Amber spotted on pinterest. They liked the idea of a library card and we took that idea one step further and designed a book "cover" by wrapping a textured paper (printed with an elegant book cover pattern) around chipboard and matted with a shade of green they were planning to use in decor. I sourced out real book pockets from a library supplies website, and ordered a custom stamp so we could stamp their info on the front of that pocket. My favorite part was the lined envelopes, lined with old book pages. Finally, inserted in to the pocket, was their card, letting their guests know of their big day.
With the save the dates done we switched gears and dived into the invite design. Amber and Sean choose a very floral and elegant invitation suite. A perfect mix of muted colors to coordinate with the original green. Rounded corners on the linen card stock and matching graphics on the envelope flap really give the invites a boost. That style carried over to the ceremony program as well as the reception place cards and signage. Next on the list will be Thank You cards.
Congrats Amber and Sean! I loved working with you and wish you all the best for a beautiful life together!
