We are slowly approaching the 1 year countdown for our wedding, and boy is that exciting!! I have a wedding countdown app on my iPhone that tells me - to the second - how much longer until our wedding - right now I am at 1 year, 2 months, 15 days, 15 hours, 37 minutes, and 57 seconds. This means we are coming closer to mailing save the dates! First though, I want to mail off custom "Will you be my.." cards. I already have written up what will be said to each bridesmaid/man of choice. They know who they are, however I wanted to make it more official and personal. Once they are officially mailed and I have heard back from each of them I will of course make an official blog posting each of them, as well as the wedding website. We haven't published our wedding website, even though it has been done for months, because we wanted to ask each groomsman and bridesmaid/man personally before posting it.
|A textured paper - Aggie Maroon - that will be used|
for the "Will you be my.." cards
|The cream textured (can't see it too well in photo) cardstock|
that will be used as well
My goal is for them to help me with a tree design. I have a vision for the stationary, however I have no idea how to create the dang tree without copying some clip-art or jpg file that I am sure has been used time and time again. That is where Paper Planet comes in! They will be helping me design my personal, unique tree that will be used to tie in all my stationary from my "Will you be my.." cards to the "Thank you" cards.
|Slightly blurry photo of ONE of the many tables they have with |
invitations they have designed
|A tree they sketched for a previous wedding invitation|
|One of the invitations I previously found to show them|
what I had in mind - I liked the basic black and white
tree with the color coming through in the leaves
|Another invitation I found that I like - from etsy.com|
|Instead of the initials in the heart - we want our initials to look like this - minus the year haha|
|Our venue is rather hard to find if you have never been to it before - |
I saw these cute cartoon maps in a few of their invitations and she gave
me a copy so my mom and I can create ones ourselves for my wedding :-)
|A fun day of house painting!|
|Henry after giving me a handful of black light paint on my face|
|Based off our previous painting photos - we decided to have an |
engagement shoot in Michigan that involved a paint fight -
enjoy watching it unfold
|I asked Henry how he wanted to start - he said, "LIKE THIS!" as he begins to|
squirt red paint all on me! So, I close my eyes and begin squirting - until Henry
grabs my hands saying, "STOP! STOP!" -
this is the photo taken right after I open my eyes and see his face
|We laughed so hard!! So did Lisa Kae - our photographer - and my best|
friend Riki who was with us at the time -
This was one of our best ideas ever!
|We switched sides so we could get Henry's "good side" - in other words, the non-blue side haha|
I love him so much!!!
