Including their furry friend in the wedding day

I already did a post on Meghan & Ryan and their dog, Bailey, in regard to their wedding stationary. I wanted to show you another way they included Bailey in their wedding day.

They used photos of Bailey as table numbers.

And, Rob, the matron-of-honor’s husband, took the same photo of them that we did (with Bailey outside of their home) but he took the digital file immediately to a nearby drugstore and had copies printed for their parents, which were put in frames on the head table – where the bride and groom and their parents sat. It was a fun surprise for their parents when they sat down to eat!

Bailey is four years old and she became a member of Meghan & Ryan’s family when they got her from another family that could no longer keep her. She is a sweet, well-mannered pup with obviously adoring ‘parents.’

St. Ita Catholic Church, Chicago/The Park Grill, Millennium Park, Chicago, were Meghan & Ryan’s wedding venues.

Thoughtful gifts for the guys in your wedding

Ryan’s gifts to his groomsmen were cufflinks individualized to each guy’s personal interest. It was a very thoughtful gift that likely took time to shop for. Great job, Ryan!

Meghan & Ryan were married at  St. Ita Catholic Church, Chicago and had their reception at The Park Grill in Millennium Park.

Life imitating art

I met Bailey at our first meeting with Meghan and Ryan. I could tell she was a very important part of their lives.

When I saw this little doodle was on Meghan & Ryan's church program, I knew we had to do a photo just like it!

Making a statement with custom stationary

On October 18, 2009, Steve and I will be photographing the wedding of Jamie Greenberg and Dave Arlin. Jamie is a graphic designer and owns her own business. She gave me a few samples of her work and I am happy to photograph and showcase them here on my blog. She has designed all of her and Dave’s wedding stationary, including the save-the-date cards, rehearsal dinner invitations and thank-you notes for her bridesmaids. You can see photos of theses below. There are also two other examples of thank-you notes for bridesmaids. I’m looking forward to seeing the invitation and other stationary she’s created for her big day. I love the idea of tying together your wedding and corresponding events with a common thread that continues throughout each piece of correspondence.

During her engagement photo session, she told me about the swans she chose to use as a main design feature in her and Dave’s wedding stationary. My mind immediately when to the 80s-era swan “art” that I saw displayed in a friend’s home when I was a kid. I couldn’t imagine how one could make swans into something chic. But Jamie did – and it’s fabulous! It’s not at all cheesy, like the swans of my youth, but is instead art deco – and like nothing I’ve ever seen. Nothing cheesy about it!

I remember looking and looking for the perfect wedding invitations for our wedding 8 years ago. I settled on something that I was reasonably happy with (had swans on it, now that I think back). But I wonder what I might have ended up with had I described my ideas to a graphic artist.

I have so enjoyed working with Jamie so far, and I’m sure you will, too. Take a look at her fabulous website – including the pet stationary. And enjoy the photos of her work shown below.

Can’t wait until the big day, Jamie!
