To kick off 2015, with a grateful and hopeful heart, I sent out self promotion boxes to my current, past and potential new clients. The box included a note of introduction, a “Hello” notecard, a “Thank You” card, a mini Portfolio, Business Cards as well as something “Sweet”. Thank you again to all of my past and current clients for trusting in me to be a part of your special events.
A Special “Thank You” to: Erica Obrien Cake Designs, Ben Helton Photography, Daniel Michael Photography, Kendall Hudgins Photography and Rain McDermott at Dallas Caramel Company
Simple and Sweet. The best way to describe these two beautiful people and their Rustic Farm Wedding. Complete with sweet tea and mason jars, tears, smiles and dancing into the wee hours. It was so much fun helping Jill and Cody make their dreams a reality. The Wedding Invitation is simple and sweet with love birds perched in a tree and an excerpt from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres “Those that truly love, have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find they are one tree and not two”. The program announces “Today I Marry My Best Friend” with the book sealed “Bound with Love”. The ceremony was complete with homemade flags individually hand stamped with “YAY” to celebrate the couple as they went down the aisle as husband and wife.

When I was asked to do the wedding invitations for this wedding, I knew it would be exciting. The wedding was held on the beautiful island of St. Kitts under a flaming red Royal Poinciana tree. The bride and groom loved the idea of using old vintage maps of the West Indies and palm trees as their theme. So, that’s exactly what I gave them. Everything was printed on Crane white pearl using a custom font and color thermography. The invitation included a weekend itinerary and RSVP in a beautiful metallic sapphire blue pocketfold with metallic bronze backing. The pocketfold included a custom bellybelt and wax stamp with palm trees. This beautiful invitation wouldn’t have been complete without the custom postage stamp which included a compass rose. Upon the guests arrival to their hotel, they were greeted with a Palm Leaf Tote which included a welcome card from the bride and groom along with recommedations for activites and shopping while on the island, as well as another copy of the weekend’s itinerary. The goodies inside included a beach towel, suntan lotion, water bottles, local rum and maps of the islands. For the reception, I created a Table Seating Chart where all of the tables were named after islands of the West Indies. When the guest arrived at their tables, each guest had a beautiful brass compass as their place card which had their name and a colored fluer de lis (which indicated to the waitstaff what each guest meal selection was) and a menu card. A good time was had by everyone! Congratulations Mary and Roger!!
