Real Wedding Thursday: Megan & Connor

When my hubby's cousin Connor proposed to his high school sweetheart, I was over-the-moon excited for them.  I was even more excited when they asked if I would created the paper goods for their special day!  We just celebrated with them at their ah-mazing wedding and I really am looking forward to sharing the pictures with you soon!  But first, let's chat about their save the dates...

I was pretty lucky that they worked with an amazing photographer for engagement pics, so our job was pretty easy.  Great photos make great designs!  We kept the design to a serious minimum and let the stunning photograph do all of the talking.  {And seriously, how unbelievably adorable is it that they are high school sweethearts?!}

Simple but lovely save the dates, featuring a stunning photograph of the lovely couple, with clean white text

Megan & Connor didn't want anything overly feminine and frilly, so even though the font is all flourishy and pretty, it doesn't feel overly girly.  This design really is as fuss free as you can get with a save the date.  To avoid crowding the photo, we kept the text very simple by directing their guests to their website for important details, like location.

If you are planning to use an engagement photo for your save the dates, consider talking to your photographer ahead of time and asking him or her for some photos that are offset, like Megan & Connor's, so that you can have some space to include text for your save the date.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a fun Friday Finds!
