Wedding Invitations : Carly & Lawrence

Carly became my client in a roundabout sort of way. Carly and I became blog friends through my Anne K. in L.A. blog. She was among the first to become a follower of my personal blog. At the time, I thought it was funny because I didn't really think anyone other than a handful of friends was reading my blog. In turn, I became a follower of her blog Westside Bride, which chronicles her wedding planning. Then, a few months ago she was selected to become a blogger for Weddingbee.

For months now, we have been commenting on each other's blogs. I have oohhed and ahhed over all her gorgeous wedding details. After seeing all of these details, I was inspired to create her wedding invitations for her. I emailed her and offered my services. Luckily for me, she hadn't solidfied any plans for her wedding invitations.

Here are the inspiration images she sent me.

Carly and Lawrence are hosting their wedding celebration at the posh and elegant Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

We had a bit of delayed start due to family business that I had attend to. Like Stephanie and Ronald, Carly and Lawrence were very gracious and understood the delay. Once I returned from my trip to Oregon, the design process when unbelievably fast.

Here is what I created for them.
