Pumpkin Calligraphy

The weather has cooled, and I can’t believe October is over half done with. Since our wedding, time has just flown by; it has already been 73 days since our wedding day! I must say, I have been enjoying my time with a break from wedding planning take up all my thoughts, day and night. So I was genuinely excited to do a pumpkin this year, and put a little more effort into mine that in years’ past.  And with my new-found skill of calligraphy, I knew I wanted to incorporate that into my not-so-traditional pumpkin! So here is my take at Pumpkin Calligraphy!

Letterpress Printing Our Wedding Invitations – Part II

Today marks our one month anniversary! It has been such a busy summer, and am so glad to be settling down with married life, although we did get a puppy last Monday that is taking up a lot of our time now!

So, now that I am not rushing to make items for our wedding day, I am finally going to revisit making our letterpress wedding invitations, as it was such a process, but one I am so glad I invested in because I loved how they turned out! I left off with going through the process right after I went to the press check, and you can read that part here.

I picked up all the invitations, response cards, information cards, envelopes, and envelope liners the next day. They turned out exactly how I imagined, and was so excited to start the process of assembling them, but wanted to add some extra touches to them before they could go out. First of all, I had a vision of the edges being painted a pink to go with the theme of our wedding, so with a pink stamp pad in hand, I started carefully inking each side of the cards, trying to do them in stacks when possible.

It was definitely more work than I had envisioned, but after seeing how the stacks were turning out, I knew I needed to do them all!

Wedding Photos

We have received our wedding photos back from our photographer, who did an AMAZING job and we couldn’t be happier with them!  Laura Murray did a post on her blog with a few of the photos from our wedding, which I wanted to share, and I will definitely be posting more once we get settled back into our home as MR. & MRS. CARNEY!!!

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day…everything went so perfectly, from the weather, the flowers, the venue, everything!  I *think* everyone had a great deal of fun, I know Bob and I did!  And a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this day, of 18 months in the planning, so perfect for me and Bob. Love you all!
