Jill & Keith - Damask Elegance

Jill and Keith are the cutest couple!

Jill found me through her friend, Kelly, who I did beautiful (if I don't say so myself) wedding invitations for. I'm so glad she found me because I had a lot of fun working with her! She and Keith had their wedding at Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee, WI and  they wanted to incorporate the casino theme into their wedding stationery while keeping everything pretty and elegant. Jill, if you're reading this, I apologize again for my dog being so friendly with you when you picked up your envelopes. :)

Jill was sweet enough to send me some professional photos from her big day. I couldn't wait to share!!

First we designed the invitations. I like to start with the invitations, then once they are out the door, we move onto the rest of the stationery. I took these photos, obviously, they look nothing like the professional photos do.

I love the post card reply card. Not only are they unique, but they cut the expense back a bit by eliminating the cost of a reply envelope. Also the postage for a post card is less expensive.

Jill had such a great idea for her wedding programs...

Jill sent me photos of everyone in her wedding party and included their relationship to the bride and groom and interesting facts about each! It took a bit of arranging and rearranging to make it all fit - but we did it!! 

I think my favorite friend fact was that one of her bridesmaids used to babysit for Lauri from The Real Housewives of OC! I'm so addicted to those Housewives.

The table cards were flat panel cards with names of different casino games printed on them.

Instead of the usual tented place card, Jill had another great idea. I printed the design on the envelopes and she and Keith printed the table assignments and  put a lottery ticket into each one for their wedding favor. I wonder if anyone hit it big?!

I love this shot!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos! Best wishes Jill & Keith for a lifetime of love and laughter!!

Sara & Alexander - Purple Glam

When Sara contacted me for her wedding invitations for her October wedding, she had a lot of great ideas and was sure she wanted her guests to say "WOW!" when they opened their mailbox. We worked closely (along with her mom)to design this beautiful invitation just for her and her fiancee Alex. As you can see, the purple trend is still going strong! I love the deep purple paper paired with the gold damask.
