Our invitations were designed by Designs By Georgia, who I found on Etsy.  She was wonderful to work with and did a fantastic job!

I bought the pocketfolds and matting (it was actually just cardstock that I cut into the proper mat size) from Cards and Pockets, and the cover weight cardstock I printed everything on came from Xpedex.  I used my Samsung CLP 315 printer to print everything, and the Cricut paper trimmer to cut everything.

Sorry for the bad photo quality, could not get a good pic with my camera.  Here they are!

Since we're getting married outside, we decided to do a sand ceremony instead.  Our set looks similar to this, except we're using bud vases for the individual colors.  Frame came from Kohls and the sand came from Hobby Lobby (pink) and Joann's (orange).

My amazingly talented girlfriend took our e-pics for us.  I think she did a fabulous job, especially considering who she had to work with.  ;)
