While bridal land doesn’t erase the pain of puppy-loss; it does create for an excellent mental escape.
Ever since I was little I enjoyed pretty packages. The bigger the bow the better, the shinier the gift-wrap the more I was smitten and obviously the larger the box the more I made the Cheshire cat look like he was frowning. But the thing that could send me over the edge was the gift-card or the lack there of. A good card usually consisted of me flipping the front over before I even read the inside to see that little word “Hallmark”… yes, I was a complete card snob. However, I have mellowed my ways a tid-bit and am now in love with the art of a good card… particularly wedding invites.
And on that note… cue the style

When I became engaged the first thing I did was head on over to the nearest book store and steal all the Bridal magazines. Yes, most pages were filled to the brim with ads which is a completely different rant but I did discover my first designer crush within those glossy new pages. Her name was Ceci Johnson and everything she touched seriously left me with a major dose of envy which is the exact reason I would love for her to design our invitations for basically every major life event… I’m that serious – This is what you consider invitation heaven via Ceci New York
