Love Unfolds

A dear friend of mine got married last weekend. I've known Ali since the day she was born. We were neighbors growing up in Colby, and our families are forever intertwined. 

So last year, when she asked me to design her invitations for a spring wedding in 2014, I was thrilled. But before I could start, I needed to know a little more about her fiancĂ© and how the two started dating.

Ali told me that she and Josh were neighbors and good friends all through college at the University of Minnesota. Then, one very special New Year's Eve, both realized they were the perfect complement to each other. And thus, a romance unfolded. 

In fact, that was my inspiration for their invitation. The LOVE letters on the front, are hand-cut so that one half unfolds to reveal the entire letter. The same with the A + J on the back.

Ali planned to use tulips for floral decoration, so I chose a fresh chevron pattern of purple, orange, green and fuchsia. 

The envelopes were made of aspen wood veneer and sealed with custom mailing labels that included the couple's engagement photo.

Ali promised me that the snow would stop flying in Minneapolis before the May 24th wedding, and she was right. It was the most beautiful spring day to celebrate two friends, two hearts and two families coming together.

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Albrecht! So happy I could be a part of your big day.
