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.

we got a lot of positive – fun feedback about our save-the-dates. we wanted something casual, but slightly different. i loved the idea of a card that opened up, and my husband who plays in a band, liked the music/poster style. inadvertently we chose a sort of typical mardi gras color combo – something that was perfect as i spent 7 years living in new orleans.

I’ve found Brooklyn Bride to be such a stylish, fun source of inspiration–when I saw your recent post on Save the Dates, I thought I’d send ours along. We ordered the return address stamp from Paperwink (after seeing a post about them on Brooklyn Bride) and then chose Carnival MF Open as a near-match to print the envelopes. I love tiny stuff, so the moo cards and the golf pencils were especially fun for me (they’re still on sale from Write On Pencils & they’ll do up to three imprint lines for free. We chose a pun, the date, and our website). We found the library stamp in the basement, and the other stamps were drawn by my main squeeze. We had fun assembling these little packets, and from what we’ve heard people had fun opening them, too!

Matt and I currently live in different states. He stayed down in Savannah, GA to open a digitial signage company while I moved back to CT to do design & innovations for a marketing agency. When designing our save the dates, we really wanted them to be unique and speak to our situation: madly in love, separated by distance, jumping all the hurdles and knocking down all the obstacles until we reach our goal of our wedding date! Hence, the maze. Matt in one corner surrounded by all things southern, me in the other with all the NYC/CT cues. I scattered things about us throughout the maze like the airplanes we spend so much time on going back and forth visiting each other, our favorite pattern (houndstooth) and even our pet blue lobster, Buster.

Our wedding’s theme is kind of vintage apothecary since we are both in medicine/science and are getting married at the MB (a glorified antiques warehouse, really). Our STDs consisted of a postcard with a magnet attached to the back. The magnet was designed to look like a champagne/apothecary label by a good friend of ours. We printed everything through Vistaprint (which may or may not have been a good thing). I designed the labels myself and printed them up at Kinko’s on sticker paper I bought during my last trip to NYC (Paper Presentation).
