I gotta get this out of the way, so I can finally stop rambling about it! Here is our Save the date, and a little bit of why this project was fun, but also a royal pain in my ass :)
This was the original direction we were heading (super rough draft don't judge)
But Matt hated the picture. So, as much as I liked it I felt pretty terrible putting out a picture he hated.
I just liked the beach and the poles!
I was trying so hard to make a beach picture work, but it just, well wasn't workin'
So we started over.
Lindsey probably wanted to strangle me when I told her I wanted to start from scratch with a new picture.
Lindsey made me pick out my font from dafont.com since I kept saying I wanted this and that but she really had no idea what I was talking about. Probably because I making it up!
Then I realized I really wanted to incorporate burlap to frame the picture.
We thought we we're done, but then the font wouldn't embed. GAH!
So picked another font - which I ended up liking better:
Better right? Well then we went to print annnddd more problems. But we solved them.
And then I mailed them.
add a few visits to papersource and THE END :)
p.s. the new 'LOVE' stamps from the post office are adorbs.
OH here is the back:
After it was all done, it was our first piece of 'wedding mail' which felt..sorta monumental? Like we hit a big milestone of sorts. It still really hasn't sunk in that we are getting married in 3 months.
Maybe because everything is moving so fast? hmm.
Well, I slowed down for a second and took a few pics to commemorate the moment.
The skyline just felt more beautiful than usual:
In other news, I love February for so many reasons, one of those being its my Birfday month!!
Jajajaja :) Be back soon, toodles.
