Invitations and a wedding logo are very important to me since they set the tone for the wedding. I spent hours on the internet looking at different designs and finally had a fantastic idea to ask my Aunt Susan for a little help! Susan lives in California and is extremely talented. She owns a company called ACME Digital Design and created the prettiest logo and invitation that I just adore. I bought the invitation paper and response cards at Michael’s and plan to get them printed locally. Not only did I save a lot of money but it was so special and FUN to have my Aunt help me create an aspect of my wedding day.

My mom found a place back home in Minnesota (though I am sure there are several places in Nebraska that offer this) that will create a rubber stamp of my logo. What do I plan to use it for? Guest bags, envelope seals, place card decor, and possibly an aisle runner. My favorite idea so far? To needlepoint it and frame it in our house! Since I have never attempted to needlepoint, I’ll definitely plan to take some excellent notes so you can try! I’ve also seen brides needlepoint table numbers for their reception. Adorable! Here is an example of needlepoint. Ignore the owls, but they are cute, right? 🙂



Our save-the-dates are addressed and sent out! We chose to hand-write them, which proved not to be as terrible as it sounds! We broke it up into smaller piles and spread it across a few days. All in all, they turned out great and we have heard great feedback from everyone so far.

All of the bridesmaid dresses are ordered, and we expect the first few to come in in the next few weeks.

Until next time,

Over the next two days we’re going to be highlighting images from Bellus Photo+Film, also known as Paddack Photography and now offering cinematic wedding videography as well. Matt Paddack is simply fantastic, and this wedding is all kinds of gorgeous and elegant!

And here’s the awesome video to go with it:

The product: Sephora’s Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer, $27, available at JC Penney’s.

Holly’s take:
Cons: Um…none?
Pros: I’ve been blessed with decent skin, but I do have a few scars and undereye circles that drive me nuts, so I’m always looking for a great concealer. This went on smooth, matched my skin perfectly, and lasted all day. I’m a total convert.

Courtney’s take:

Cons: By the end of the day it had settled in my fine lines a little, but at my age what concealer doesn’t?! 😉
Pros: Excellent, smooth coverage that lasted all day long.

The verdict: This concealer is worth every penny and then some! It definitely earns our seal of approval.
