Wedding Weekend

When it comes to parties, a wedding is the ultimate in events. I really enjoyed planning ours, but I will say that I was ready for it to all be other with by the time the big day arrived. I know my friend Carrie felt the same way this past weekend, but everything turned out beautifully.
I love the tradition of weddings. There’s something about all of the day-of preparations: the bridesmaids getting ready with the bride, and trying to stay away from seeing the groom and his groomsmen; peeking into the reception to see how everything has turned out; wondering how the flower girl will behave (and then laughing when she inevitably does something cute).
I think that’s why I really love working with brides on their wedding invitations and collateral materials. It is undeniably a feminine event, a day that most brides have dreamt of their entire lives. I love having a part in that.
I worked with Carrie on her wedding invitations a few months ago. She wanted a simple, classic design that incorporated her love of butterflies. I loved that she used robin’s egg blue as her color of choice (also mine at our wedding!). 
Her cake was super-yummy. It was a classic white cake with a raspberry filling that was to die for. Delicious.
And do you see those chocolate curls? Um, yeah. The grooms’ cake was gone before anyone could blink an eye. Every. Last. Piece. 

Speaking of weddings, one of my favorite blogs is Something Old, Something New, authored by invitation designer Kenzie Kate. Not only does she design fabulous invitations, but she has such an eye for bridal style. Even though I’ve been married nearly three years, I still love to check out her finds.
