2016 First Half Recap

posted in: Handlettering, Paperie |

2016 has already been so much fun, designing and meeting lots of new brides. Last March-May was seriously crazy. I felt like I was in over my head, all. the. time. But, I feel like we’ve made huge strides this year, by beating set due dates, and never feeling like I was going to have mental breakdown. It’s a really nice feeling! However, blogging will always fall to wayside during busiest seasons. Also, I wanted to make sure to not spoil any surprises for anyone! From wedding suites to business branding, we dabbled in so many different events these first months of 2016! Most of the photos below are just iPhone photos, until I get all the real photos from all the photographers!

Wedding Suite Designs

We love all of our brides, and we love even more when their suite ends up reflecting their personality. From classic to quirky, elegant and fun, our wedding designs are all custom. We love using florals, or just a beautiful font for that timeless look.

 Bridal Showers, Save the Dates & Rehearsal Dinners

The supporting events of a wedding are equally fun to design for! Engagement parties, bridal showers and Rehearsal dinners need their own special touch too!

Business Branding & Design

We don’t talk about a lot other than weddings, but we also LOVE supporting small business through branding & design. Logos are so much fun design, but wine tasting menus are certainly a close second.

Phew! We’ve been busy, but it’s been so much fun! I can’t wait to see what the rest of 2016 holds for us! Actually, I know there’s going to be some really amazing suites coming, but you’ll just have to wait and see. Sometimes, we post little previews on Instagram, so make sure to follow us at @saltandpaperie!
