I honestly can’t believe it’s taken me this long to put together a blog on this fabulous couple. Not only because I feel their wedding was so long ago (yes, like 10 months ago), but more because Jocie and I have talked, emailed and texted so many times since their wedding day that it’s unlike any other bride I’ve worked with.
But first, their wedding invitations.
When I met with Jocie I could tell right off the bat she was one of those brides who knew what she wanted, she just needed someone to put her ideas into motion. And those are my favorite brides. Greenery was #1 on her list. Lots of greenery. But the one element she always had to make sure I put on everything is berries. The berries that would pop throughout the greenery on her wedding day were small, but very important. I wonder how many times she had to email me, “don’t forget to put berries on it.”
We came up with these amazing invitations that showcased the greenery that was at their wedding. And berries. Of course the berries. We wrapped the invites with a light grey belly band with their monogram front and center on top of that. We kept it classic with an off-white envelope as well.
And the wedding day items…I love when I get to help with these fun pieces. We did a bar sign, bathroom signs, no cell phone sign, gift bag tags and my favorite…custom cards for her bridesmaids and her new groom who loves to mow. I mean, this man really loves to mow.
The icing on top of the cake for this amazing couple’s wedding is that they were featured on the cover of Wedding Essentials magazine. One would have thought I was on the cover when I saw it and squealed in joy. Check out WE’s magazine online.
Like I mentioned, Jocie and I have shared a few texts since January. One being the news that they are expecting! And no kidding, I think I was the third person to know as she needed some custom cards to surprise her family with the news. I’m looking forward to meeting Baby Kobes soon!
