Anne Le Guerne, a super talented illustrator here in Brooklyn (she designed the invites), recently got married to her hunny Abe, and Jen Causey was nice enough to send me some pics! Looks like a fun affair!
abe is a jewish-american real estate developer and i am a french, atheist stylist and illustrator (firstname.lastname@example.org). what has been the common link for the 14 years we’ve known each other? our dedication to our family and friends. From the flowers, done by my dear friend djamila moore, to my skirt that my grandmother and i reworked from my mother’s 30 year old wedding dress, to the huppa i hand-stitched from our families’ lace collections, we were surrounded by love everywhere!
after debating numerous and complicated wedding scenarios, we decided to have an all brooklyn affair. we started the day with a portrait session with friend and wonderful photographer jennifer causey (http://simplyphoto.blogspot.com/). then headed to the back stable of frankies (http://www.frankiesspuntino.com/) in carroll gardens, for the family-only ceremony and dinner. after a delicious meal, we walked over to the bellhouse (http://www.thebellhouseny.com/home.php) where 100 of our friends and family were waiting for us with confetti. the dreamy dreamland orchestra (www.dreamlandorchestra.com) music was a perfect soundtrack to the night while we danced and feasted on the delicious treats of baked (http://bakednyc.com/) in redhook.
we ended the night blissfully happy and exhausted just as it should be. now, we are planning part deux with my family in france this summer. think, family farm in the alps: can’t wait!

I’m so into these semi-custom invites from sub-studio…while the designs are readymade, you can customize the colors to fit your palette.

As an interior designer, its hard for me to not be inspired by amazing interiors, so seeing these pops of color in otherwise gray environments makes me see incredibly sophisticated wedding palettes. Can you see yourself using these colors?

Its always a thrill for me to see a good friend do something amazing like start a business…Erica and I have been chatting about this day for a while, so I’m glad to finally be able to introduce Thoughtful Day to you! Erica has designed a line of wedding stationery that is mix and match, so that each is customized to your own tastes without going custom!
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix or match their letterpressed wedding invitation suites. The option is completely up to them. This allows couples to not only come up with their own unique collection, but also pick a collection that will fit within their budget. The collection prices are not fixed, which allows couples to be creative with not only the look of their wedding invitation suite but also the price. The Melodie Collection can work with all budgets! You may opt to pick a two color letterpressed invitation and a one color letterpressed rsvp to help with cost, the freedom to choose is what the Melodie Collection is all about. All four of the themes work mixed together or completely matched. The choice is yours! There are three shown colorways, but custom colors are available as well.
I’m in love with all Erica’s work and know you will be too, so head over to Thoughtful Day and check everything out! [Did you know she did the B-List branding AND my own wedding totes too??] So proud of you girl! Check out the blue colorway over at 100 Layer Cake.
As for me, I’m taking the rest of the week off…planning a conference is not easy work and I need a little breather! I’ll be back on Monday…
