It was definitely a true labor of love when we designed our own wedding invitations. Our big day…. our special moment… our wedding is something we hold very close to our heart. We chose to have a very, small and intimate wedding because we both come from very large families and to invite everyone, we would need to reserve an amphitheater. (and I’m not kidding!) So a lot of hearts were broken, but in the end, it was about us and I’m happy with what we decided. The day was also special to us because not only did we get married, we baptized our daughter! We “branded” our day as celebrating LOVE because we wanted to include our daughter in the celebration as a day of love for our family! We chose a booklet style invitation because we had a lot of information we needed to include for our guests and we wanted them aware of everything going on. We started the day with a traditional wedding ceremony and then we baptized our daughter. From there, we had a lunch reception (that was Ahh-MAZEing) and when we were done, our bridal party gathered to take pictures. Once we finished there, we had a cocktail reception at a private residence and here, we were able to invite more guests who we were unable to invite in the morning events. It was a long, beautiful day and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
