a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

Our Save the Dates!!! October 22, 2008

We gave Marit Hanson just a few guidelines for our save the dates: our color scheme, and a vague idea that we wanted to use our engagement pictures and give an overall feel of “event” rather than “wedding” especially since we’re getting married in an art museum.

Marit is a dream to work with. Of course I expected great things because we immediately bonded over our mutual love of chartreuse and damask, but what I didn’t expect was how involved I felt in the process. She was completely open to playing with new ideas, excited about our suggestions, and patient with our inability to decide on a photo to use (Kitty Maer just gave us too many good ones to choose from!), not to mention lightning fast with her turnaround time.

So without further ado…

I cannot express how happy these make me! They’re the perfect preview for the fun, urban, modern wedding we’re hoping to have (and I kind of feel like a celebrity having my picture on them). I also found these cool stamps on that I think will really pop against the green envelopes.

We’re also using Marit for our invitations, and I can’t wait to see how those turn out too!!! Check out her Etsy store if you want to feel like a rock star too 🙂
