Our invitations were designed by PW's Sarah Goff aka Signatures by Sarah! I had seen a design that I liked online, and asked her to use it for inspiration. She did a wonderful job bringing my vision to life, and I had so much fun working with her. I highly recommend her!

Mock-up in the pocketfold!

Our fur baby is a HUGE part of our life, so his presence will be missed at the wedding!

To make up for it, we are going to incorporate him into an element of the wedding: our candy buffet, which is also serving as our favor. I am going to call it "Sgt's Sweet Shoppe", and will attempt to design something cute for a sign and/or favor bag stickers. I will probably put one of our e-pics with the pooch on an easel next to the candy buffet :-)
