FEATURED EVENT: Karen + Jameson Wedding

Sunday, December 26, 2010

Last winter one of my very best friends got married! I was so excited to get to design for her and her soon-to-be husband! Karen had seen invitations that had caught her eye at Michael's that featured a swirl graphic. We played around with several swirl graphics and put it together with her wedding colors in a panel invitation with a coordinating RSVP postcard. Everything was enclosed in a black envelope that featured white address labels that also featured the swirl graphic.

Karen and Jameson had a beautiful winter wedding in Rocklin, California. The venue was beautiful as were the purple, black, and teal details of the wedding but none of them were as beautiful as the bride herself! I was beyond thrilled to get to travel to attend the wedding and to witness how incredibly happy Karen and Jameson were on their big day.

Karen was a bridesmaid in my own wedding and loved the candy buffet that we had set up so she rented the candy buffet containers from me and we ended up setting up the table when we got to the venue. It ended up being a huge hit with their guests! They also "rocked the reception" and pulled off an amazing choreographed first dance!

The last names of the bride and groom have been removed from the invitation to protect their identity and to also protect them, I can only leave you with two pictures of the couple on their wedding day. Enjoy!

FEATURED EVENT: Kaelyn + Trevor Wedding

Sunday, December 19, 2010

Kaelyn and Trevor were planning a beautiful wedding that was to take place in Montana on a ranch! I met with Kaelyn and her sister while Kaelyn was in town. We all threw around some ideas and she mentioned that she wanted everything to have a rustic country theme to it. Kaelyn decided on a dark green, tan, and chocolate brown color scheme for the designs. The invitations, response postcards, and table numbers all featured a wheat silhouette. We created postcard save the dates for them that were printed on kraft paper that featured a rope border and custom monogram (we used a brand as inspiration for the monogram - an idea that her and her sister came up with which I thought was unique!).

When I saw Kaelyn's wedding pictures, I couldn't wait to feature them. The wedding details paired with the beauty of Montana made for a beautiful event!

The snow capped mountains and beautiful blue skies looked amazing...I now understand why they call it "Big Sky Country"!

Navy and Pink Paisley {Graduation Card}

Sunday, December 12, 2010

This fall my sister-in-law graduated from college! I wanted to create a whimsical card for her. I created a handmade gate card made out of navy metallic paper that was then lined with pink paper. A metallic navy mat complimented the invitation that featured pink and navy text and paisley designs printed on white cardstock. I finished the design off with some navy and pink ribbons, a pink belly band, and enclosed it in a pink envelope. Here are pictures of the final product. So proud of you, Whitney! xoxo

ECHO {Band Logo}

Saturday, November 20, 2010

A couple of years ago, we came up with this logo for a local band that my brother was in at the time. I came across it the other day (along with tons of other design projects that I did before starting this business) and decided to post it!

Brittany's Baby Shower Invitations

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Wow, needless to say, October was our busiest month yet since starting MDS nearly a year and a half ago! What a way to end the 2010 wedding season! We designed for a wedding every weekend in October along with being the wedding planner for the October 2nd wedding and doing "Day Of" set-up and take down for the October 16th wedding!

I am still trying to catch up on blogging past projects we have worked on along with blogging all of the beautiful weddings we got a chance to design for! A big thank you to our amazing couples and to the rest of our clients that made this summer and fall so busy for us! xoxo

Last February, I was contacted by Brittney in regards to designing her baby shower invitations! She wanted her invitations to reflect a black, white, and pink theme along with a damask motif. She also wanted a special little saying included in the wording on the invitations as she was requesting that instead of cards, guests bring a baby book signed by them for baby Rylee! I thought that was such a cute idea! The invitations were enclosed in envelopes that featured wrap labels with the same damask motif to coordinate it all together.

Here is what Brittney had to say about MDS on her Facebook page after picking up her invitation! Thanks, Brittany! We LOVED working with you and hope to design for you again!

FEATURED EVENT: Brittany + Cole's Wedding

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Where do I start, Brittany and Cole have to be two of the sweetest people on earth! I had so much fun designing for them and getting to know them over the course of the year while they planned for their big day! Brittany and Cole decided to go with a chocolate brown, gold, and champagne color theme in their designs. We designed chocolate brown signature style pocketfolds featuring gold and champagne cardstock. We finished the pocketfolds off with gold custom embossing, hand placed pearl accents, and a gold belly band. Menus consisted of champagne cardstock with pearl accents as well. They selected a 5 layer program that featured a chocolate brown cardstock cover that also had custom embossing on it. We created coordinating reserved seating signs for the family tables as well.

As soon as Brittany contacted me, she said that she was interested in renting the candy buffet that we offer. Stay tuned for the fun candy themed save the dates we designed for them! When it came to the flowers and candy, she wanted tons of color! We worked with her to coordinate all of the candy, unwrapped hundreds of pieces of candy, and provided the set up and break down of the candy buffet at their reception location. We also created ivory glassine bags (Brittany selected a quote for us to print on them to tie everything together), a banner for the front of their candy buffet table, and labels for the jars. We also folded all of the gold napkins and placed those, along with the menus, at the tables. We offer many services to help bride's during the planning process. The couple also rented our chocolate brown ornate wrought iron easel and frame set to display one of their engagement pictures in.

Brittany and Cole, it's been an honor to design for you and to get to know you! Your wedding day was beautiful and I can't wait to see where life takes the both of you! Best wishes and lots of love!!

Here are the pictures I took of our products from their wedding.
