Sarah and Jason were married on May 2nd in Michigan.  Sarah and I worked across many miles to create invitations, programs, placecards, a seating board, menus,  thank-you notes, favor cards, etc.   For their invitations, we used a black pocket, ivory linen papers with fuchsia accents, and we placed a small rhinestone on the flourish on the inside of the invite.  They used their monogram as a front label and also throughout the other paper products.  We created custom menus with black and fuchsia borders.  Their programs were elegant booklets with the ivory linen paper and black covers.  We placed the monogram on the front and finished them with a fuchsia ribbon.  They used the “D” from their monogram to create a really cool ice sculpture as well.   I have missed the many long e-mails we sent back and forth, but Sarah happily reported that they had a fantastic wedding day. Thanks to JS Photography for the photos!

Leah and Ryan were married at the beautiful Montelucia Resort.  We created menus, programs, and escort cards for their favor shot glasses, which were filled with personalized M&M’s.  They also had their monogram from the invitation lit up on the dance floor!  Thanks to Emily Estfan of EME Photography for the sensational photos!

Whether you’re writing thank-you notes for your wedding gifts or for your Christmas presents, it is very important to thank the person specifically for what they bought you.  I don’t believe in pre-printed generic thank-you cards… even if you had 350 people come to your wedding.  If they took the time to choose a gift for you, you must take the time to thank them.  Some people choose to purchase pre-printed thank-you notes that say “Thank you for the wedding gift.  We appreciate your kindness.  Love, Jane and Jack” but I don’t recommend it!

For example, if they bought you a Kitchen Aid mixer, you can thank them by saying how much you’ve enjoyed using it to make homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Basically, make sure that you mention the actual gift.  I like telling people how I’ve used it as well. 

Here are a few samples of recent thank-you notes I’ve done. They don’t have to be super fancy!  In fact, I really like a 4×5 flat card with a monogram at the top.  It’s also fun to include a photo.  Feel free to Contact Me with any questions or ordering information.

First of all, these photos are AMAZING.  EME Photography… nice work!  I keep going back to look at them!

Danielle is one of the sweetest people in the world, and she was a pleasure to work with.  Nick was very appreciative and kind as well.  Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings coordinated this wedding, which had tons of incredible details. 

For the paper products, Sandy found a pillow with the word “Love” on it and our friend and graphic artist helped me re-create it on paper.  We used it on the escort cards and cookie labels for their cookie bar. The wedding was at Bentley Projects, an art gallery, so Sandy ran with that theme and placed the escort cards on little art easels. Their programs were simple, yet elegant to match their black and white and red.

Again, it was such a pleasure to work with Danielle and Nick and to get to know their families and friends.
