Shoes....shoes...shoes, OMG, shoes

Most people say wearing a white wedding gown signifies purity, some say wealth, but what does your shoe color say about you? White gowns have a long history, but who said the slippers have to be white, too!

Lemon yellow can bring out your cheerful personality and whoever gets a glimpse of your pumps will know you love being happy!
Pink is the sweet side of red. Pink peep toe platforms will provoke passion with a pinch of playfulness (all about some awesome alliteration).

Red delicious shoes might tell people you LOVE love, something serious. You're and angel and a devil with canned heat in your heels all night.

Blue hues are calming and friendly. They may evoke feelings of stability. You'll have your lucky "something blue", and a reason to smile, as if getting married isn't reason enough.

Colorful shoe=modern bride.

Handy work

We received the hand made invitation suite for our client Jenny's wedding, awesome! She's so talented.

The recurring theme in the stationery has been the use of her and her fiance's silhouettes and the oversized ampersand which creates so much character and consistency.

She also kept things simple with the use of craft paper for her invitation envelope, invitation sleeve and response card envelope. This should go great with the Cotton Dock as their reception venue, and burlap used in the linens.
