Redesigned Rehearsal

This week is my shout out to all things Becca with Rebecca Rose Events.  We are only 2 more sleeps away from the Rebecca Rose Events & Amy Lynne Originals grand opening shindig and I am so excited.

Becca approached me back in July to design some rehearsal dinner invites for a bride & groom she was working with.  Of course I jumped at the chance.  These two were having a Texas {groom} meets North Carolina {bride} bbq dinner at the perfect venue-WinMock.  I have already expressed my love for WinMock here and of course I hold a soft spot in my heart since I had my own wedding reception in a barn. {American Village in Montevallo, AL}

 So for this lovely bride & groom I knew the colors were coral & brown and the theme was casual, rustic and fun.  We definitely wanted a shout out to the barn and everything else would be clean and simple.  So maybe I could redesign that into an invite that expressed all those things in one.

all information has been changed to protect the innocent

And after seeing the photos from the actual event I think the invite was a perfect sneak peek into what this night was all about.

Makes me want to have a party in a barn again! Y'all come back ya here.

Taking Care of Business

So just yesterday I blogged about the Triad's very own Becca of Rebecca Rose Events and the genius behind Ever Lovely.  Well I am so honored that this wedding planner extraordinaire has given me plenty of business this fall and even bestowed the honor to not only create her open house invites but also her new business cards!

Now that the office signs are officially up...

 Becca has new business cards & notecards to hand out to all the lovely brides and grooms out there! Feel free to swing by on Thursday, October 20th from 5 to 8pm to pick one up!   I'll be there ready to redesign that if need be.

Circle the Date!

If you live in the vicinity of Winston-Salem, NC then you better circle this date, Thursday, October 20th.  I had the pleasure of designing the grand opening invitation for the lovely Becca of Rebecca Rose Events & Amy of Amy Lynne Originals.

These two women are some of the Triad's finest stylists in town.  Lucky for you they are now both in the same place. They have joined forces and now share an office space on historic Burke Street. {Read more here}

 And this, and this and this! {You can see more from all three photos shoots}

So knowing that these two together are rock stars and they have a love for the color red, we decided to take a photo from their Red photo shoot collaboration and redesign that into a fab grand opening invite.  The front side of our invite looked like this:

And this was the back side of the invite!

Circle the date, grab your champagne flute, wear a red dress, scarf or heels and join us for a little shindig!
