Bits and Pieces of Invitations

Since Tim is a graphic designer it made sense for him to design our invitations (he designed our save the dates as well with some input from me).

But neither of us know the craft of paper making so we had to go and seek out the pieces of our invitations.

We went to Landis General Store and found the foundation of the invite. We loved the pocketed envelope from, Marsupial Papers. We got one that looks like this

in a dark brown (you'll see, it looks very nice!)

But since the envelope is so dark we knew we needed labels of some sort to address it.

Today we were out with our friend Jared (who is also Tim's best man) and we saw that Hennessey + Ingalls was having a 20% off sale. Jared is an architect and Tim is graphic designer and they sell architect / design books. I like art and design too so it wasn't like I minded. And I found some awesome labels by an artist named Angela Adams. And they were 20% off too!

This week I have to head to Landis and pick up the things we had to order (they didn't have enough in stock) and then the assembly will begin!
