I have a friend who owns Skidmore Inc (http://www.skidmorestudio.com/we/index.html). – a creative agency in Royal Oak, MI.  She had one of her designers mock up this save the date for us.  The designers name is Libby Cole and she is available for freelance work (libby.cole@gmail.com) – we loved being recognized as “the couple on the fridge” by friends of friends as we made our way to the big day.

Save the Date: Lynnea + Nathan

IsonWedding-SaveDate

IsonWedding-SaveDate-back

Since every Save the Date I have received so far from friends has been a magnet, I wanted to create something unique and larger, yet simple and chic that would really pop if our guests chose to put it up on their fridge. Our colors were be the ever popular black, white, and green, and the green was a natural choice to flood over the whole piece. It’s actually the Pantone that exactly matches my wedding shoes (my first purchase for the wedding)! My fiance and I had been dating 8 years, so I couldn’t resist having the headline read “Nathan and Lynnea are (finally) getting married!” as a joke on my initial layouts. Nathan thought it was funny, so it made it on to the final piece. We’re not a very formal couple, so the little touch of humor really suits us. The finishing element was the stamps which were a subtle way to make it extra personal by incorporating our smiling faces, and I justified the expense because they were on a postcard and not an envelope that would be immediately thrown away. Hope you like!

And with that, I’ve got to close up submissions for save the dates…lots of other things that have been put on the backburner in the meanwhile, so I’ll let you know when the next Save the Date will be!  Thanks to everyone who shared!

Real wedding: Heather + David

David and I planned to have our wedding ceremony and reception in Costa Rica, for our love of the sun and surf, and invite our close friends and family to witness our union under the chuppah and celebrate with us. But as it turned out, our family had some exciting events that would prevent a few close family members from joining us. So, in an effort to include everyone closest to us in our celebration, we decided to have 2 wedding celebrations: a religious ceremony and reception in Costa Rica on May 12, 2009, and a legal ceremony and dinner on April 5, 2009, which would be a small gathering of just the immediate family, and my best childhood girlfriend, to be held in the garden of the private residence of David’s father and step-mother in Marin, CA. We were fortunate to have David’s 96 year-old grandfather, who is an internationally-known Rabbi, officiate our legal ceremony for us, and have our closest family members in attendance, totaling 16 people.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The weather was warm, the sun was shining, and love and joy were all around us. I wore a spring-time white, halter dress from BCBG and fuscia colored, satin heels from Stuart Weitzman. David wore a custom button-down shirt by Ascot Chang, pants from Banana Republic, a belt from The Hound, and shoes by Auri Footwear.
The florals were arranged and presented by Main Street Florist, San Anselmo, CA, the Costa Rican inspired menu was prepared and served by Stacy Scott Fine Catering, San Rafael, CA, the wedding cake was designed and created by Shin Min Li of I Dream of Cake, San Francisco, CA, and our photography was shot by Janet and Lisa of JL Photografia, Monterey, CA.

Save the Date: Chandra + Eric

My fiance and I had our photographer mock-up this save the date, from another bride we saw on your website!  She took it a step further by printing on both the front and the back, of thick, linen, cardstock.  Our photographer is Carmen Nauseef of Blink of an Eye Photography and deserves all the credit for this beautiful STD.  We took the photographs back in our home state of Ohio and love the farm, rustic feel it gives.

Save the Date: Elise

We’ve been together for over seven years and have always loving taking photobooth pictures. We have a book of over 45 different strips, both color and b+w, which have been taken all over the country. Because of this, we decided to incorporate some of our favorites into the design. Of course we will be having a digital photobooth at our wedding ala Our Labor of Love.
