Programs

Remember this? This past weekend I attended the wedding and am delighted to report that it was as nice as the invitations :) Here is a peak at their wedding programs.

Wedding Wednesday: They're orange!

I promise they are orange! I have received several compliments that are directed towards my red invitations, so I wanted to set the record straight and photograph them again so they look orange. Not sure if I was successful or not, but please know, in real life they are orange :)
Signed, sealed, and (soon to be) delivered! We have licked (yes, I just said licked) about half of the stamps and addressed all of them. I can't wait to get them out the door very soon :)

Nests

With my wedding less than 3 months away, I was inspired to do a little TTV action on a few nest still lifes. Now I am trying to figure out a way to incorporate them into the wedding...

New Goodies

Above is my latest obsession. I can't afford a digital fisheye lens right now so I opted for the toy-film version, the Lomography Fisheye Camera...how fun :) I'll post images after they get developed!

As I was trying to link to the fisheye camera through the urban outfitters website I stumbled across this baby below..geez! This is a Rolleiflex Mini Digital Camera that is modeled after the original. Can you believe this thing? So little, so digital, and so expensive. At $399, I can't afford one quite yet, but maybe one day :)

Happy Mistakes

I shot 3 rolls of film with my Holga camera recently and although I am comfortable with my camera, I some how messed it up this time. One of the main advantages of the Holga though is that even the greatest mistakes can produce some really neat results.

Day in the Gardens

Dustin and I spent yesterday evening exploring Duke Gardens in Durham, NC. Oh what a lovely place :) We hadn't been back since we took our engagement photos there last winter so it was nice to see everything in full bloom.

Wedding Wednesday: Invite Preview

Voila! Finally! We spent all of last night finishing our invitations and it was well worth it. All 110 of them complete :) I struggled for the longest time trying to decide what I wanted my invitations to look like, there is extra pressure when you are a graphic designer. I opted for the A6 size (for the stationery nerds out there) because I liked the feel of smaller pieces and also enjoyed creating my invite and postcard reply the same size. Because our wedding is in our hometown with everything happening at the same location, we were able to get away with only having two cards. I am very pleased with the results and am especially fond of our vintage stamps :)
