Just Married!

Ok, so this project is a big one.  A happy and healthy marriage for the rest of my life.  Totally doable.
Deb and I got married in Virginia Beach over the weekend and I couldn't be more jazzed about it.  And the first thing that I was ever early to happened to be my own wedding... bonus!  Check out the gobo and the lighting.  Nice huh.  Props to Mary and Rhett for the picture.  There were a few missteps along the way but that just added to the charm of the event.  Deb was beautiful, our guests were a blast and Blue Steel Lighting rocked the reception out.  I have a feeling these memories are gonna stick around a while.  Now we're off to Jamaica.  Can't wait to post about that.

I'll call you Stampie

So, they are chairs that you take to your chairs.  Cute huh?  These fun little wedding favors kill two birds with one stone.  Hmm, maybe not the best saying for a "love birds" themed wedding.  While they are a great way of distributing the favors (inside the chair) and alerting guests of their seating arrangements, the best part was how we customized it with a handy little stamp from Simon's Stamps.  We have a nifty little logo that will be making a few different appearances at our wedding already and thought that it would be great if we could get it on the front of the paper chair somehow. The original idea was to print it on a sticker but experimented with the stamp method cause there was a good chance the outcome would look much better.  And we were right.  It wasn't so much the idea as it was the stamp.  It's good.  And surprisingly good at that.  Some of the text is pretty darn close together.  I was impressed.  Though it took a bit of practice to get the pressure and alignment just right, only a few chairs made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of personalized decoration. A little candy here and some calligraphy there and we have ourselves quite the unique wedding favor.  Special thanks to Rhett for help with the logo.  The man has the Photoshop skilz to pay the bilz.
