Fairport Canal Days

Fairport Canal Days is this weekend! I will have a booth set up there. Are you coming to see me?

June 2nd // 10am-6pm
June 3rd // 10am-5pm

I'll have all of my invitations on display, as well as stationery and prints to sell. Here are some teaser images.

Lastly, I'll be offering a free raffle. You could win a wedding stationery package, party invitation package, or coupons off of orders (including Etsy). 

I'm excited to see how this event goes. It was a lot of work to get ready for it. Once everything is set up, I'll blog about how I organized my booth.

I hope to see some familiar faces and meet some new friends this weekend!

Cake Face

On Sunday afternoon, a [fantastic] colleague and I checked out a Bridal Show at the Inn on the Lake. We've been talking about setting up a booth of our own, so we thought it would be a good idea to go see one first hand.

While there, I picked up a business card for a pretty interesting app. It's called Cake Face. Ya know how it's popular to place disposable cameras on each table? The idea being that the guests will take more candid shots than the photographer. The bride and groom can then develop those shots and have an entire album of these fun pictures. This app replaces that. With smart phones, your guests can download the app, and then take pictures. Whatever pictures your guest takes, gets uploaded to a website for the bride and groom to look at and print later.

Here is the website with more info:

A pretty cool idea. People are taking pictures with their phones anyway -- why not harness it?

Why Weddings?

Why not weddings? Everything about them makes me squeal in excitement. The bride in her dress. The look in the groom's eyes as she walks down. The colors. The guests. The music. Everything so unique to fit each bride and groom. Have you ever been to two identical weddings? I didn't think so.

I married the sweetest guy in June of 2009. Ever since planning my own wedding, and designing my own stationery, I have been passionate about other couple's big day.

My favorite part of designing your wedding invitations? Hearing about your wedding. I want to know about the flowers, the dresses, the location, the music. I love the little details. I love hearing about your style and vision for the big day.

Your stationery is the first thing your guests see. Shouldn't it reflect you? Shouldn't it be unique, just as your wedding is unique? I think so.
