March 5th, 2011 — it was an epic day! Gemstones glistened from the candelabras that adorned burgundy satin tablecloths, guests rallied together singing “Living on a Prayer” and line dancing to “Sweet Home Alabama” as two lovebirds twirled around, taking in every detail. It was a beautiful day for a white wedding — my wedding!
While it seems like just yesterday we were walking down the isle, it’s been an amazing four years as Mr. & Mrs. Wow, time flies!! This milestone also marks the anniversary of Legacy Loft — sort of. Being a graphic designer, I couldn’t just settle for any old wedding invitation suite. I needed something unique and beautiful... something to truly impress my guests and set the tone for my big day.
Naturally, I gathered the troops (ok, just my mom), and we combined my computer design skills with her scrapbooking expertise to create handmade, gorgeous wedding invitations. I wanted something me, something that I hadn't seen before that was completely personalized and special. Breaking the mold of typical 5”x7” invites, we went for a long and narrow design, printed on ivory shimmer paper, which tucked into a burgundy pocket-fold, all tied together with an embossed belly band and a gold-foil monogram. It. Was. Perfect!
Having made the most stunning wedding invites I’d ever seen, we knew we couldn’t stop there! We then made matching programs, name cards, table numbers, welcome sign/seating chart, beverage sign for the bar, guest-book sign, and labels for the appetizer table. With every embossed band and decorative pearl, we fell more in love with the wedding industry and making handcrafted, highly embellished wedding invitation suites. A legacy was born.
To celebrate our anniversary, all of our March blog posts will be targeted towards weddings! Stay tuned the next few weeks to hear about how I won a FREE Alfred Angelo wedding dress, how I made my dream wedding for under $12k, and other fun wedding tips/photos!
