first of all, i’m sorry i’ve been so absent on my own blog lately! our new camera gadgets arrived this week and we’ve been working hard to incorporate their effects into our style. we’ve also been speed-editing sally’s bridal portraits so she can go ahead and order some prints for her big day! i’m sure you noticed that you didn’t see any lovely images on our blog from that session, we didn’t want to ruin it, sorry andrew ;) !! on top of everything has been the excitement of gearing up for our first wedding of the season this weekend in myrtle beach! we can’t wait to share some images with you guys soon!
speaking of images, this week we received one of the most personalized and creative wedding invitations i’ve seen. brides, take note: invitations give your guests the first glimpse into your wedding day. think ahead about what tone you want to set for your big day and attack invitations from that angle! our friends claire and philippe created such a fun and personal vibe for their wedding day by creating invitations as unique as they are! these two are pure french through and through, though recently moved to the u.s. for philippe to teach and research at georgia tech. their wedding will be with their families in france, but they kindly took into account all of the out.of.towners, you’ll see! the portfolio style envelope created a natural canvas for their adorable personalized stamp (a pic we took!) which created a great teaser for their matching invitations inside. Their first insert, a save the date-like card with photo-booth style pictures (taken by us, yup), creates a relaxed and fun feel for their day. the second insert is three full pages front and back of their favorite places around their wedding venue. simple and clever titles top the pages like, ‘the sleep’ (bed and breakfasts, and hotels) and ‘the mmmmm’ (which includes local wine and cheese cafes, mmmmm is right!). overall, i’m in love with this invitation and because we had to turn down photographing their big day (we’re booked, sadly) i feel like i’m missing the party of the century, all thanks to these unique, personal invitations:
best wishes you guys!
