I’m so excited to share some WONDERFUL news with you!!!! Want to know what it is??? Some of my designs were featured on Style Me Pretty today!! Can you even believe it? I’m beyond excited and wanted to share the news with you this AM, but you know time flys. . .
I met Mary, several months ago. She asked me to design a graphic for a baby shower she was helping throw. It was an adaptation of my little owl design. She was super fun and easy to work with. Fast forward a month or two, and Mary came calling again. This time, she wanted me to work on her WHOLE wedding collection. Wait, Me? Seriously?? What a huge compliment that was and I surely didn’t want to disappoint.
Mary sent me a sketch of her and John and their adorable dogs. At first, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but it all started to come together!! I’ll let you take a look for yourself. . .
You might recognize these from my “MIA Maddness” post waaaaaaaaaaay back in May? Mary was one of four brides that I worked with this summer!! I will be sharing a few more of the wedding collections I did, someday. . .I know, I have commitment issues!
I designed the wedding invitation, RSVP card, map, tag, jam label, program, and place cards! It was a ton of work, but so much fun!
If you want to know a little more about the bride and groom, check out what Mary had to say. She even mentioned me by name, oh how I love her!!!! Here is how she describes their style. . .
“John and I love having friends over for cozy dinner parties and wine nights, and we really wanted our wedding guests to feel as welcomed and comfortable as they would in our home. I grew up in Napa, and we wanted to share the wine country scenery and hospitality we love so much. As soon as we arrived at the Sylvan Lake Estate, it was love at first sight. The home felt like a hidden garden, and we loved the idea of bringing our guests to a place we knew they had never been before. It was important to me that we have some handmade elements, but I also didn’t want to go crazy with too many projects.
When we started talking about design, John made it clear that a pink wedding was out of the question. While grey and yellow is a modern color palette, I loved the idea of softening it and giving it some charm. The white rustic farm tables had the casual elegance that Napa is known for, and my mom sewed all the table runners herself. Our centerpieces came from the farmers’ market, and my bridesmaids and grandma put them together the day before the wedding. I knew I wanted to do a homemade favor, and jams and pickles were the perfect fit because they could be done ahead of time. My mom, my maid of honor, and I all tackled the favors whenever we had a free day, and they were one of my favorite elements of the wedding. The paper goods by Jessica Wilcox were amazing, and really tied everything together. She created a custom yellow lace pattern that we used on the invitation suite, as well as the favors, place cards, and programs.”
