Bingham Wedding Part 5

As our place cards we printed menus with each guest's name at the top of it. Under the guest's name was a "eat, drink, and be married" logo. These were placed into folded napkins with just the name peeking out and were placed on top of silver chargers at each place setting. The knife was placed across the napkin just in case the wind picked up since it was an outdoor wedding.


Here are the save the dates that we sent out. We changed the date and location shortly after from June 7, 2008 in Bakersfield, CA to August 29, 2008 in Santa Barbara, CA. When we changed the date, we asked the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort to send us the postcards that they hand out in the hotel. We sent those postcards out with the information change to give our guests a sneak peek at our beachside location.



We wanted to include custom touches on our thank you cards as well. For the front of our cards, I designed and printed a 4x6 collage of our wedding pictures with our monogram in the center. We matted these onto chocolate brown cards. On the inside, guests found a copy of the picture that they had taken with us during the reception as well as a thank you. The pictures were attached with rubber cement so that guests could easily peel them off for safe keeping. Here are pictures of my mom's thank you.

Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

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!
