I am so happy to announce that we were featured on Orange Blossom Bride the last week of June! This shoot was super special because the couple photographed was a real couple celebrating their 10th year of marriage! Mitch and Leila are just the sweetest and their kids are seriously cute. Check out the full post here: Casa Feliz Vow Renewal
In the meantime, check out my fave images from the shoot!
Casa Feliz, the historic home located in the heart of Winter Park, was the backdrop for our shoot. This shoot featured beautiful Burgundy, Blush and lace wedding ideas. Since the couple were celebrating such a huge milestone, I opted for a luxury suede invitation. Inside the suede invitation, features a rose gold layer with a blush water color invitation. I wanted to keep the palette super soft in comparison to the other burgundy elements. I hope that you can draw some amazing ideas from our shoot!

3 Quick Tips: How to Effectively Proofread Your Invitations
I think many times people disregard or underestimate the revision process. This is the key to making sure your invitations turn out beautifully. So, treat it with respect and give your revisions the time and dedication that it needs.
Here are 3 Quick Tips to make sure the process goes smoothly!
1. Who, Where, Why, When, and sometimes How! Be sure to have these key components on your invitation. Your invitations should give your guests the most amount of information about the event as possible. Be sure that the suite has your key information and then expand on it!
2. Have an extra set of eyes read it. This is really important! I say to have at least 3 people read your entire suite. Choose people who actually care about getting it right. Do you know an English teacher or a professor? Choose them before your friend who has zero interest in your invitations!
3. Take your time and check for spelling. I think the key here is taking your time. Go through your wording with a fine tooth comb. Set aside time to do this. Don’t try and multitask on the commute home or do it at work. REALLY set aside time in a quiet place to read through everything! Your wallet and your stationer will thank you!

We are so happy and pleased to have been featured on the Frosted Petticoat last week! Head on over to see the full feature!
I loved this photo shoot because it was based on a sorority. As a member of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority Inc., I know what it means to take inspiration from your sorority when planning a wedding. At first my vision for my wedding had nothing to do with being a Gamma, however, slowly but surely the colors crept in, our flower and even our music! This shoot is about just that. A woman getting married and involving her most beloved, her husband, her family and of course…HER SORORITY SISTERS! This inspirational shoot is definitely one to check out!

Thank you to Claudette Montero Photography for the amazing photos!
The outer envelope is just what the name suggests, an envelope that goes on the outside of an invitation. So, the invitation has two total invitations. An outer envelope can be used in modern stationery, but is often left out. Traditionally, the outer envelope was used before we had a true mailing system. Families would send invitations to their guests via horseback. Needless to say these invitations would travel through all of the elements, weather and nature itself to get to the guests. Outer envelopes would be used to protect the invitation and the envelope inside. When the person delivering the invitation arrived at the residence, he immediately removed the often stained and unsightly outer envelope and presented the guest with a pristine inner envelope and invitation!
So, in today’s world it is not really necessary. If you are traditional and really want one then definitely add them to your order. However, with the rise of colored and specialty envelopes, the outer/inner envelope has been replaced by just a mailing envelope.
If you are opting for an outer/inner envelope, be sure that you are addressing them correctly. The outer envelope would be completely addressed and the inner envelope would have the names of the guests invited. This is often an added cost with stationers so be weary when adding this to your order! AS with everything be sure to get everything your package includes in writing in the contract.
I hope this helps to clear up any questions about Outer Envelopes! If you have further questions you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
