Shew…A lot of big things have happened in the past two weeks! Let’s review:
-Chris and I are buying a house! It’s near my new job and we’re both really excited. It’s the same house I mentioned in my last post. We’re currently under contract and should be closing in two weeks.
-I started my new job. Yesterday I was officially welcomed into the “real world.” I previously interned for the company I’m working for, so it’s been more like coming home than starting a new job. I love the group I work with and am excited for this opportunity.
-I got a new niece! Miss Ellie was born late Saturday night. Congratulations Jennifer!
-Finally, I finished printing Drew and Audra’s wedding invitations, which is the whole point of this post.
Audra and I met through her fiancé, Drew, whom I attended graduate school with. I told Drew about my printing and he passed everything along to Audra. I loved meeting Audra. She is hilarious and was so much fun to work with, and I’m not just saying that. After they came over to pick up their invitations on Saturday, Chris said, “We should’ve hung out with Drew and Audra. They’re nice and she’s funny.” I sighed and replied, “Yeah, but we didn’t know and now we’re moving.”
Audra’s invitations are gorgeous. I was going to wait until March to share them, but she gave me the okay, so here we go:
Audra found an invitation that she loved and I based my design off that. The invitations were printed on light pink paper using gold ink. This pink paper is lovely. The pictures do not do it justice. In addition to the invitations, we also created a RSVP postcard and a “details” card. The invitations will be mailed in a pearl white Crane’s Lettra envelope with the return address printed on the back flap. I was so excited about the “Andrew and Audra” logo that I printed it first and sent Audra a picture as soon as I was finished:
I love how well all the pieces in this suite coordinate. For after the wedding, we created folded thank you cards featuring the same “Andrew and Audra” design from the back of the RSVP postcard.
Audra, I hope you love your invitations! Thank you for being so easy to work with, supporting my business, and supporting me when I decided to quit grad school. I know that you and Drew will have an amazing future together!
