As I am sure that many of you know, one of the hottest wedding photo trends right now is Instagram!  Just have your guests whip out your smart phone and bang, you have a collection of wedding images captured by all of your amigos. Have them leave the same hashtag on all of the wedding images and they will show up under that name all in one instagram location.


Until next week, LOVE,

Monograms or initials used in thoughtful details – a signature from the first day of your life together that will  last forever… napkins, paper, a tag sewn into your dress with your initials to pass on as an heirloom… so lovely.

sealed with a kiss

You’ve planned your invitation down to the very last detail. So why not seal it with something just as special. A personal seal expresses dignity, prestige, and formality of a bygone era. Add another layer of detail by painting metallic highlights on to the hardened wax or stamping the seal in a metallic ink pad before pressing it into the wax.

A quick history lesson… For centuries, important documents were authenticated by placing a large drop of melted wax next to a signature and then impressing an engraved signet ring. (Often a coat of arms.) It was tradition to destroy the seal when the owner died so few original signet rings still exist. With the introduction of the gummed envelope in the 19th century, the need for wax seals dwindled but they were still used as a decorative element and means of personal expression.
