Welcome! I create custom monogram designs, invitations, wine bottle labels and pretty much anything else paper-wise and would love to work with you to tie your wedding together! Monograms can be used on just about ANYTHING for your wedding: invitations, programs, wishing tree cards, thank yous, cake, on the dance floor, signs and labels, you name it! Personalized wine bottle labels are a great way to identify tables, or use as favors! With print-at-home options, they can be very affordable and unique!

Location: Fruit ranch outside of Wapato, WA
Time: 6 pm
We had a blast!! DH's family did an AMAZING JOB!!! They invited about 50 people, and we had 25 people actually show. They hired a local caterer, and we had a buffet of mini BBQed ribs, chicken tex mex style, fresh fruits, pasta salad, cesar salad, and ice cream for dessert.
They decorated the tables with photo frames of our wedding, flowers and lanterns.. it was held in the backyard of my sister-in-law and her husband's house, under a beautiful cabana covered in grape vines!

Below: Party! :) Most everyone left by 9 pm, but a few of us sat around drinking and chatting until almost midnight!
Below: on our way back to Seattle to fly home, we went over White Pass, and through Mt Rainier Nat'l Park. Soooooo gorgeous! On our way, we stopped by DH's parents' cabin to show my parents.
Below: When we got over to Seattle, we ate at Ivars on Pier 54. It's a tradition of ours to eat there whenever we're in Seattle. Amazing fresh fish and seafood! We also went to the Pike Place Market to watch the flying fish.

My colors will be green and pink!! I'm helping my mom plan it, since she's VERY busy otherwise, and everyone else who would throw me a shower live in WA!! Here's my favors:
It was at my parents house.
Instead of a "traditional" white guestbook that would end up in the closet, we decided to make our own photobook with our engagement pictures as our guestbook.
I made the book through Picaboo.com. Overall I loved the design program and the number of templates available for use. The quality of the book was good also, however the back photo on the book is crooked, and there are dents in the front cover.
