Happy Thursday everyone! I have a really special wedding to share with you. I showed you a sneak peek a long time ago of Christie & Chris' amazing letterpress & foil stamp custom invite suite and promised that I would share the entire wedding with you when I could! Well, the wait is over!

The details of this wedding are amazing but that's what you get when the bride owns a fabulous wedding and event planning business, Christie Rose Events.  Kick back and enjoy some wedding eye candy...this wedding will not disappoint!

Real Wedding Thursday: Christie & Christopher's Glam Wedding Invites

Guys I have the MOST amazing wedding sneak peek to share with die for!

Christie, owner of Christie Rose Events and her fiance Christopher, came to me after seeing my design work on Bella Figura. Christie knew instantly what she was looking for, which made designing something for her really amazing. I can't show you the whole wedding just yet but trust me when I tell you, its jaw dropping gorgeous.

Take a little look at the final result, a custom designed letterpressed and foil stamped, lace inspired invite suite. The whole wedding is just so swoon worthy and I am chomping at the bit to show you!

And I need to share this other photo just because its too precious not to share with you...

I hope you are looking forward to the big reveal...I really am excited to share it with you when I get the word that I can!

Have a fab Thursday!

Custom Monogram for Genna & Fred

Genna & Fred came to us looking for a motif to use on the paper goods for their wedding day. With a pretty palette of colors already selected, Genna & Fred knew that they wanted something vintage feeling and feminine.  We gave them a few options to choose from but in the end this is the design they chose, which will be used on many paper goods that Genna created and printed on her own.

What I adore about this design is that it feels very classic and timeless.  This design is something that they can easily use moving forward in married life, don't you agree?

Have you considered having someone create a custom monogram for you?  Would you have something timeless created or something more themed and wedding specific?

Inspiration Board Wednesday: Marsala & French Blue

Marsala is sort of growing on me.  Admittedly, I was a little disappointed that this was the pick for color of the year for 2015.  I was having a hard time visualizing it for a wedding.  But I think when its paired with something unexpected, like a French Blue & pale Glacier Gray, I'm more than enamored with it!
