Are you already one of our brides? Come to the show and bring a friend, if she (or he) orders invitations with us, both of you will receive free return addressing!!

10 Father/Daughter Dance Songs

In honor of Father's Day and the wonderful men behind the holiday, I present you with 10 popular songs that brides are dancing to with their dad's:
  1. Daddy's Little Girl (Al Martino)
  2. If I Could (Ray Charles)
  3. Isn't She Lovely (Stevie Wonder)
  4. Lean on Me (Bill Withers)
  5. Lullaby (Billy Joel)
  6. My Girl (Temptations)
  7. She's Leaving Home (The Beatles)
  8. My Father's Eyes (Amy Grant)
  9. Unforgettable (Natalie & Nat King Cole)
  10. The Way You Look Tonight (Frank Sinatra)

Is your song missing from the list? Tell us what it is/was!

My father and I danced to "Maria Elena", originally know what? I don't know who it's by. I just Googled and Googled and can't find it. I must move on with my day. Mom if you read this, please let me know who sang that song. 

Anyway, it's the song I was named after and our band learned to play it especially for me. :)

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there - especially mine! Love you Daddy!

Nicole & Derrick: God's Gift

I started working with Nicole way back in January, and what an absolute pleasure she was to work with! Nicole and Derrick knew exactly what they were looking for. They wanted their invitation to be elegant and to include the rich purple colors of their color theme. They also wanted the invitation to look like a gift for their guests to open and they wanted the tag to read "God's Gift". Here is the invitation that I created just for Nicole and Derrick...

We also designed ceremony programs...

Nick & Irene: April Showers

I was recently lucky enough to design wedding invitations for my close friends, Nick and Irene. I mean lucky when I say it, they were such a fun couple to work with, which is why we are friends I suppose!

Since their wedding day was April 24th, Irene was thinking an April Showers theme, gray with splashes of bright color. Nick wanted to make sure we incorporated orange, not too much pink, and they both wanted the invitation to have a contemporary feel.

This is the invitation I designed just for them!

We used Irene's wording...I love what she came up with for the reply card!

I also designed their programs...

and CD labels to match.

Cheers Nick & Irene! Thanks for being so great to work with, and for letting me a part of your special day!
