Andrea and Justin’s wonderful Save the Date cards started with the photo shoot. They had a good friend shoot their engagement photos, and they turned out fabulous! Though they hadn’t thought about a save the date card at that point, the photographer suggested using the framed chalkboard as a prop to incorporate their engagement and wedding dates into the photos–one of the all-time-great save the date ideas! (See our blog post on engagement photos for more ideas.)
When Andrea saw our Sweet Math Save the Date Cards, she thought they would be a great way to showcase our photos. “I was also drawn to the uniqueness of the card. It was so much more original than other save the dates I’ve received.” She had plenty of room to tell the story of how they met and their wedding plans, not to mention their wonderful photos.
Did the cards meet her expectations? “I was so excited! I thought they were perfect. A few people that have seen them already have actually teared up! I can’t wait for our parents to get them!”
As for the wedding, “we are having it in my hometown and are going for a relaxed BBQ style theme with a live band. There is a bonfire pit where we plan to have a s’mores and hot apple cider bar late night. I’m really looking forward to sharing our first day as husband and wife with all of our loved ones!” Congratulations on your engagement, Andrea and Justin!
