Bingham Wedding Part 4

Matt and I wanted a custom and unique guestbook for our wedding. We were going to have our photographer take a picture of us during the reception with every family, couple, or individual that attended the wedding. I decided to take ivory cardstock and mat each family's (or couple and individual) name on the paper accented with either a pink or orange stripe made out of Bling paper. I then used the same stamps that I used on the cover of the programs to accent the pages but this time they were stamped in a pink and orange stamp pad. We placed a chocolate brown cardstock place holder where the pictures would eventually go so guests wouldn't write in that area. During our reception, our DOC handed out the guestbook pages along with brown Sharpie's so the guests could write on them. We loved how they turned out. Guests wrote words of wisdom, inside jokes, sweet messages, and some even doodled or did sketches. We are placing the pictures on the pages and will put them into a brown linen scrapbook.


Here is a picture of pages before, during, and after the whole event.

Three examples of our guestbook pictures that we took with our guests to be placed on the guestbook pages after the wedding.


Here is our friend, Ryan filling out his and his girlfriend, Michelle's, guestbook page.


I also designed a seating chart to be displayed along with table names. We named each table after a city in Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties as well as some of the Channel Islands (Santa Barbara, Anacapa, Ventura, Santa Rosa, Etc.).



We also made reserved seating signs for our parents and grandparents to be displayed on their chairs during the ceremony.

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
