Watching our family grow is really just the sweetest feeling! Just two years ago my cousin Katie got married and now this year we got to meet their sweet baby girl Evelyn. While in Maine we got to steal a few mornings for photos with their little growing family
While I'm away here in Maine, I still wanted to make sure I kept my usual post schedule. So while I get to be with this little cutie and her family in person this week, I wanted to share some photos of our time we spent back on the west coast at the San Diego Botanic Garden! I mean look at those thighs! :) How adorable is their little family of 3! And I know I'll get some *loving* feedback but I just had to post these photos of my parents loving on their new great (or is it grand?) niece. Oh and hey, Andy and I even got a photo together too! Now that is a rare occassion! And then the trip wouldn't be complete without a walk along the Pacific coast. Looking forward to posting even more photos of this adorable family once I get back from being here on the east coast! :)
Just last month my family and I drove out to Dillon, Colorado for my cousin's lovely wedding in the mountains. Now that the event has come and gone, it's about time I share the invitation suite I designed for her! You may remember her save the date I posted at the end of last year, she wanted to keep the same elegant rustic feel for the invitations. In the meantime, she had started a wedding website on theknot.com and when I saw it, I thought it would be perfect to design her stationery accordingly. So I redrew the graphics from the site, used the same typefaces as the save the date, and voila! It was also the first time setting up a file for a spot varnish! I'm also including images I took from the day of the wedding and how she incorporated their "logo" into the cake and wedding program. View more images after the jump!
All the cousins on my dad's side of the family are *much* older than me (haha to any of you who may read this) and so I have never been able to go to any of their weddings, but this next summer I finally get to be there for a family wedding! I am just so excited to be there as my cousin Katie gets married in Colorado! And I am just as excited that she asked me to design her save the dates and wedding invitations. Here's just a taste of what's to come, just a few details from her save the date. They want rustic-simple-elegance with a tone of the Colorado Rockies
