I know it sounds selfish but I love changing a couple’s mind. I really do it out of love, I swear. Kim was planning to buy her wedding invitations online. Her maid of honor, who is also getting married this year and will also be getting an à deux design, suggested she meet with me before deciding to go that way. Boy, I’m so glad she did.
With a small guest list and a limited budget, Kim and Doug didn’t think it was “worth it” to have custom stationery made. They only needed 30 save the dates and invitations. But after my consultation with them, I knew they had very specific ideas that a mass-produced online marketplace wouldn’t be able to provide.
They both wanted their stationery to be traditional but not stuffy, a little bit Art Deco but not heavy-handed, a blend of feminine and masculine with calligraphy that was easy to read. Anything else? Doug wanted a custom monogram and thick cotton paper. Kim had a specific shades of peach and gray she wanted to use. This would have been a tall order for anyone other than a custom stationer. Together we were able to craft a stationery suite that was unique to them and their wedding celebration.
Kim and Doug got married last weekend in Boston. It was captured beautifully by photographer Michael Goderre of Island Road Images. You can see more of their lovely wedding photos on Island Road’s Facebook page.
Shout out to Kirby for sending this great couple my way. You just raised the maid-of-honor bar. Thanks, Kim and Doug, for allowing à deux to be such an important of your wedding. Cheers!
