Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: I Will Invitations

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: I Will Invitations

Recently, we shared this lovely invitation suite by I Will Invitations. Today we’re getting to know Gayle, the talented woman behind the scenes. Enjoy!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

My original profession as a teacher was thoroughly enjoyable work. When I got cancer, however, I knew that with the treatment I couldn’t be in the classroom enough to make the difference that a teacher should, and needed a career that was flexible enough to fit around me. With all the prior experience and courses I’d done, the obvious answer was something in graphics. One and one together made two when I thought about my own recent marriage and how much fun I had with the planning aspect. Nine and a half years later, I Will Invitations continues to grow. It has survived my health problems as well as the ups and downs of motherhood three times!

Lucy & Viktor meet through their local church in Denver and it was love at first sight.

Today’s guest post is from Michelle R. Mays. Michelle is the owner, lead planner and designer of RenayMeshell Events, a boutique wedding and event planning company based in New York City. Michelle treasures working with brides and grooms to manifest their wedding vision.

Church weddings are rather easy to plan as long as you know and follow the guidelines. If you start planning before receiving the guidelines, keep the ceremony simple and design an elaborate reception. Simple does not equal no décor, instead use statement pieces that will make an impact.

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Adore Wedding Invitation Suite by I Will Invitations

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Adore Wedding Invitation Suite by I Will Invitations (1)

Today’s featured invite comes to us all the way from Melbourne, Australia! Here’s what Gayle of I Will Invitations, has to say about this beautiful invitation suite:

The Adore Wedding Invitation was created based on the current trend of watercolour hues.  By itself it was a pretty design but we wanted to add some more definition to it, so we complimented the watercolour pattern with an intricate squares pattern background that was in the same color palette.  To complete the design, we chose Peony flower outlines to embellish the edges of the artwork and added a whimsical font to suit.

Real Wedding: Anastasia and Ivan’s Wedding in Santorini by Anna Roussos

Real Wedding: Anastasia and Ivan's Wedding in Santorini by Anna Roussos (1)

This gorgeous Mediterranean destination wedding comes to us from photographer Anna Roussos, based in Athens, Greece! Here’s what Anna has to say about the wedding:

Anastasia and Ivan got married on a nice summer morning in the middle of June. They travelled all the way from Moscow to their dream wedding island Santorini. They were surrounded by their parents and closest friends when they exchanged their vows overlooking the famous Caldera view. The ceremony and after ceremony cocktails took place on the Dana Villas Terrace, which has become the most wanted spot on the island to get married. It was very peaceful, but also very emotional, I truly enjoyed the atmosphere and felt like we were old friends with Anastasia and Ivan!

Real Wedding: Violaine and Gaetan’s Whimsical Wedding by Bonnallie Brodeur – Photographe

Bonnallie Brodeur - Photographe (5)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Bonnallie Brodeur, is eclectic, whimsical and tells a tale of ‘happily ever after’! Here’s more about the wedding from Bonnallie:

They love nature, animals, fishing, color, they are original, she is his sweetheart, he is her pirate and we love them both! When we got to the family lodge in St-Etienne de Bolton where Violaine was getting ready, we asked her to prepare her accessories (gown, jewellery, perfume and rings) in order for us to take pictures of them. In most cases, we use a bedroom to shoot these kinds of pictures so we expected her to tell us to do this inside one of the lodge bedrooms. Instead, she simply told us “Why don’t you just take everything back to the fir forest behind the lodge?”. WOW! We quickly headed back there with all the accessories, still not believing our luck!
