oh lovely letterpress....

There really is nothing like letterpress. As I am searching for vendors to print our invitations I just keep realizing how much I love letterpress. Seriously, I would print everything in this style if I could.....it's just so lovely!

For those of you not familiar, here are some samples of this beautiful art form!

Inspiration Board #1

From my sketch book and beyond......enjoy!

New York, New York...

Hey there, sorry for the delay since my last post, this silly thing called a 9 to 5 job just keeps getting in the way of my wedding planning! argh!

Anywho, met with Chef Rossi, (theragingskillet.com) and she's wonderful! We look forward to finalizing a contract and working with her for the perfect menu! She gave us lots of insight on how the actual day would go, and even some inside tips for working with Eleanor, the owner of the Met Building. (If you haven't read, Eleanor is a one-of-a-kind sort of lady!) So we're glad to have Chef Rossi on our team!

In other news, looks like we'll get the band we were hoping for! So people, put your dancing shoes on! It's going to be SO much fun!!!

Working on a fun map that I will post very soon of fun things to do in NYC while you're here! So let me know if there is anything in particular you'd be interested and doing and we'll see about arranging it! (museums, shopping, siteseeing, people-watching, flea markets, art galleries, you name it, we've probably got it here in the city!)

Hope your enjoying the last days of summer! Much love to you all!

To Do This week....part deux

So none of our To-Do's from last week got done! Ha! This week, however, is off to a good start.

Tomorrow we finally meet with Chef Rossi, I'll keep you "posted" on how that goes. We're very excited to see what she has to offer!

We have the invite list pretty much finalized, which is a good thing. Now the daunting task of gathering addresses is looming.

We hope to have the band finalized in the next week or two...we saw them at another wedding and they were phenomanal so we're super excited to have them at our wedding! They are full of energy and very FUN! Fingers crossed that they work out!

Also, hope to have all the wedding party asked by the end of September. That will be another big check off the list. We're trying to do it in person, so it's taking a little longer than expected!

So those are the big things, although the list somehow keeps getting longer, the rest seems to be the fun stuff! Dress shopping (eeeee!!! that's me being excited!), flowers, invites, photographers, hotels, cake, transportation, and the list goes on and on........BUT...I am really excited! Can you tell?

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! Working on some cool stuff for the blog this week so keep your eyes peeled! :)
