Handkerchief wedding invitations

This was a beyond ingenius idea for wedding invitations for artist Youngna Park and her fiance Jacob.

A collaboration in the truest sense, the handkerchiefs were designed by Kelli Anderson, then Youngna had the handkerchiefs printed from Spoonflower and then cut and packaged each for guests.  Such a sweet and thoughtful keepsake!  I would DIE to get one of these jewels in the mail!

If you’re interested in learning more about the behind the scenes process, check out Kelli’s post about it hereThanks for sharing Youngna!

Real wedding: Amber + Joe

Its not every day you see a wedding with practically no flowers used…but thats just the case with Amber + Joe’s wedding!  They had some pretty talented family and friends helping them out, but Amber can explain it better…

us: We met in our first class in the graduate program in anthropology at The New School for Social Research.  We were casually disinterested friends for two and a half years before we were in a study group together and realized we were in love.  We decided to get married because we love each other so much, and a wedding seemed like a really good way to celebrate that with the people in our lives.  We both love books (ok, we’re nerds), our friends, and don’t care for impersonal wedding traditions, so we decided from the start that we could make our wedding whatever we wanted it to be.  When things got stressful we would just say to each other, “At the end of this we get to get married!”  Most of all, we wanted everyone to have fun.

Our parents helped us so much, but as struggling anthropologists, we still had a very small budget to work with, so we and our friends constructed, created, wrote, and made every part of our wedding.  It was truly collaborative, and truly us.
