Real Wedding: Jodee + Alex’s Rustic Wedding Stationery

wedding stationery TD17

Burlap and kraft paper. I’m in crafting heaven.

Jodee and Alex were married this past weekend and what a lovely affair it was.

Leading up to the nuptials I had the honor of creating their wedding stationery.  The wedding featured burlap textiles and khaki tones with soft pink accents all in a gorgeous outdoor setting complete with my very favorite flower: baby’s breath.

So much fun it was to be a part of their special day, from planning the details, making their stationery, celebrating at her bridal shower, partying during the bachelorette weekend, coordinating on the day of, and most of all, standing at her side as they said “I do.”

I can’t wait to see their photos to relive the day with them over and over, but for now we can enjoy the stationery.

Cheers to Three Years!

I really cannot believe how quickly time is flying.

Yesterday, Hubby and I celebrated our three year wedding anniversary, which means we’ve been together for more than 8.  That may not seem like a lot to you 15, 20, and 25+ years married folk (hats off to you, by the way), but when we’re only 25 and going on 27, that’s quite a bit of our lifetimes and all of our adult lives.

We celebrated by packing a yummy picnic…

Navy + Gold Chevron and Arrow Wedding Invitations

You remember Katie’s gorgeous bridal shower invites, right?  Well today I’m sharing her amazing wedding invitations and I’m drooling over here!

Navy and gold is a classic combo, then paired with chevron and arrows, you’ve got quite the masterpiece.  Katie is so in tune with the details in her design style, she didn’t miss a beat.  Thick cardstock and letterpress bring the whole package together just right.

March National Craft Month + Katie’s Bridal Shower Invitations

Did you know March is National Craft Month?

This is a great time to get started on all those DIYs you pinned and even come up with some of your own projects.  I don’t think it’s coincidence this comes alongside all that spring cleaning either.  Take some time to go through those storage closets full of random things (yes, I’m sure you have at least one spot like this!).  You never know what treasures you might find to beautify, de-clutter and craft up your space.  Let’s get our creative mojos going!

Throughout the month, I’ll be sharing my newest DIYs.  You can look forward to at least a craft per week.  This is going to be a challenge, but a fun one!

We’re going to start this crafty month off with a bang and something that’s close to my heart.  One of my best friends is getting married next month and in honor of the special day, she of course had a lovely bridal shower which was an absolute blast!  Being the artist that she is, Katie insisted on making the invites.  Since she knows how crafty I am, she enlisted my help putting them together.

We had such a fun day shopping at Paper Source and I even got to help her pick out a veil at her wedding dress accessories fitting.  We headed home and got to work cropping, cutting, folding, and tying.

The color combo is fabulous, don’t you just love it?  And I adore the design she created for the invite itself.

Wedding Planning Update: We Found a Venue!

We’ve jumped (and landed) the biggest and most urgent hurdle of wedding planning, finding a venue, and in turn, picking a date!

What a relief it was to see how much the glowing bride-to-be loved the venue, because we were getting down to the wire and running out of options.  And luckily one of the venue approved caterers is a barbecue joint, just what they want, yum!  The other falling-into-place detail is that they offer a coordinator to assist with the rehearsal and day of tasks, because I’ll also be a bridesmaid!

Looking forward to planning and being in this lovely day of matrimony.
