There are those weddings every year that will define my year. In 2019, I felt I had a handful of those, and Emily & Isaac’s wedding in Lincoln, Nebraska was one of them.
And it’s not because their wedding invitations were some of the most beautiful I’ve ever produced (no lie). Gold foil everything, cotton paper and just a touch of blush…I mean, classic perfection.
It’s because I will remember this couple, and especially Emily’s mom, for some challenges they had in their wedding planning. It’s not every day that I give out wedding planning advice. I’m not a wedding planner. But this couple was in a bind and didn’t know which way to turn.
And from that moment on, I knew that I was gonna make sure this couple was going to get the wedding they deserved.
So through many phone calls and texts with Emily’s mom, we produced some of the most beautiful pieces for a wedding that I can remember. And as I walked into their wedding reception (I got invited! So I went!), everything that surrounded me I felt was what Emily dreamed about her entire life.
I’m not sure if I can even list everything we produced, but I’ll try. Wedding invitations, programs, mirror seating charts, signs, french fry containers & gold foil stickers, napkins, menus, gift bags & gift bag pieces…okay…there is more but that’s what I got right now.
Words can’t describe this experience. I didn’t know from the first phone call I had with Emily that this couple would be one that I would follow for years to come. I didn’t have a clue at that time that Emily’s mom would still be on my text message string and it’s going to stay that way for awhile.
People come into your life for many reasons and I know why this couple came into mine. Thanks for choosing me to design for your wedding, Emily & Isaac. I wish you so many blessings in your marriage.
