The world is small.
I was reminded of this one day when I met Caroline about her wedding invitations. I was showing her another invite (as I always do) and she noticed something. She noticed that on the envelope from this 2015 wedding invitation, her name was printed
Huh? How did her name get on this envelope? Oddly enough, Caroline knew this couple I designed for. When I create my sample invitation for my stash, I just print a random envelope from all the envelopes I need to print. And this sample was her name and address.
It’s like I knew her before I knew her.
And it was truly a match made in heaven. I mean, I loved working with Caroline (and her mom) because they had a love of paper and wanted something gorgeous for Caroline & Nevin’s July wedding at the Ackerhurst Dairy Barn in Bennington.
We started with bookmark Save the Dates. Yes! Bookmarks! This was a first for me and I loved the idea behind it along with the functionality as well. The fuchsia ribbon was my favorite part.
For their wedding invitations, we designed something so classic and amazing. Gold and black on ivory. A few of my favorite things about these invites were the horizontal layout of them (this is something some couples just don’t embrace), the gold foiling of course, the gold metallic envelope liner and Caroline added a wax seal with their monogram on it as well.
For their wedding day, we created gorgeous ceremony programs for their wedding at St. Vincent De Paul in Omaha. We also did a few place cards for the head table and a very cute seating chart that was a perfect touch for the Omaha Barn.
Caroline & Nevin’s wedding was one from 2019 where everything just fell into place. I’m not sure if that was karma from the envelope when we first met, or if it was because this couple was just so organized and great to work with. It was definitely one for the books.
