Don't get me wrong – I loooove love. All about it. But wedding invitation design? THAT is something I reserve for the very best of friends, with bonus points for a bride with spectacular taste that promises a beautiful and inspiring outcome. That's definitely the category that my dear friend Sierra falls into – smart as a whip, French-speaking, red lipstick wearing, perpetually elegant (usually in black, ideally in Céline), mile-a-minute, with a smile that will just about knock you over and a big heart to go with it. So when she asked for help with invitations for her upcoming wedding, I was all over it. We had fun with paint flourishes and hand-drawn maps, and the big questions of military time v. the twelve-hour clock and who doesn't like their middle name. Tra-la!
I was out of town when the invitations went to print, and the cobalt blue proved tricky, so Sierra, in classic "let's roll up our sleeves and get this done" fashion, trucked right down to the printer's to sit with the color tech and get it right. She then proceeded to set up a shop in a conference room to stuff envelopes and get these (slightly tardy) babies on their way. Did I mention how awesome she is? Now she has a one-of-a-kind wedding invitation to match.
