Kristin and James

Kristin and James were married on an absolutely beautiful day in September. Just look at that sky! There is almost nothing better than September in Chicago... maybe October...

James is in the Navy and looked so smart in his dress whites. Kristin worked with Petal Play Designs to come up with a subtle nautical theme that played so nicely with the colors and design of the Park Grill and with James' uniform.

These two were so in love, I got teary during their first dance. You could see him singing to her. I love my job!

Colin Lyons and Kristin put together a photo booth with a sparkly backdrop and Navy surplus hats. That was the only thing distracting guests from the crowded dance floor.

Lucky me, I got to work with these wonderful people:

Ceremony: St. Michael in Old Town
Reception: Park Grill
Photographer: Colin Lyons
Florist: Petal Play Design

Sarah Drake

Sarah Drake and I first worked together on Allison and Mark's wedding last summer. She welcomed us into her sweet, sun filled studio with some very yummy coffee and beautiful paper. I love, love, love going to invitation meetings, digging through books and feeling paper. Sarah does, too, so she didn't mind talking weights and ingredients (can you say that about paper?). Allison had some wonderful ideas involving hand-drawn florals and Italian paper.

That meeting created this.

Allison and I really enjoyed the whole process. Sarah came up with some very original ideas that meshed well with Allison's overall theme. I also just liked plain liked her. When Sarah sent me an email about her new invitation line, I was so excited to share it!

A few of my favorites...

I love all the little details- the liners, the backing, the textures. I would love to get one of these beauties in the mail. Congrats, Sarah!
