When Luke and I got engaged one of the first things that I did was choose a photographer. To me, photographs and food are the most important part of a wedding. I had seen the work of the uber-talented Kate Harrison and knew that she would be perfect. She takes the most beautiful images that have the most incredible ethereal lightness to them. If you are planning a wedding in the Bay Area, please make hiring Kate your first order of business. She takes amazing pictures and is one of the most genuine people (which is important when you are not used to posing for pictures!)
It was through Kate, that I was first introduced to Minted – an online site where you can order personalized cards, stationary, invitations, and find amazing art and design. Kate had worked with Minted before and recommended we do our wedding Save the Dates through the site. We choose a beautiful image she took of us (and a hand painted date sign that took me days to make) during our “get to know you photos” and printed it with Minted. It turned out perfectly and from that my love of Minted was born. To date, I have done my wedding invitations with Minted as well as my blogger” business” cards, 3 holiday cards, a save the date, and my sister’s baby shower invitation. I put a copy of each one below, I couldn’t find my sister’s baby shower invites, but I promise they were awesome.
One of the perks of having our wedding photographer work with Minted is that our wedding images are used on the site. So when you look on the site you can find a picture of Luke and me as one of the holiday card templates! We are famous! Each year without fail someone finds us on the site and emails completely confused. To be honest I kind of love that we are on it – 3 years later I still love the picture they used and it is so fun being a part of a company that I not only love and use but I am actually on! We are literally and figuratively the poster couple for Minted.
