the little things

In some ways our wedding feels like it was forever ago but it’s actually been less than a year. I’ve been wanting to share a few of my favorite details here (better late than never!) because I really enjoyed working on them. In particular I loved designing our programs and crossword puzzle menus. I’d like to be doing more of these types of projects and a big goal for me this year is to just do it – just throw myself into projects that explore that creative side that I know I’ve got.

When it came to the look and feel for our wedding, we didn’t have any lofty goals for elegance or pizzazz but we wanted to make the day fun and full of real love. I like to think that we managed to capture some of that sparkle through the little things. My skilled sister helped me with signage, my sis-in-law made a photo collage,  I designed our menu/crossword puzzles and programs and I painted our cake toppers (Sounders scarf and all).



The buffet menu and crossword was something we wanted to include as an ice breaker for our guests. It was fun coming up with the questions and really easy to use an online puzzle generator to create the grid. The rest of it came together in Illustrator.


Mmm looking at that menu makes me want to go back and relive the whole thing.
