This is an unbelievably overdue blog entry! Kate and Chris (you may remember their Save the Dates and Invitations from earlier posts) had their beautiful wedding on September 5th, 2009, and I was absolutely thrilled to be a part of it. Kate asked me a couple weeks before the big day if I would design the programs for their ceremony. She wanted to maintain a touch of the green apple theme that ran through the rest of her stationery suite and reception decor, but because it was a formal Catholic ceremony, she wanted to program to reflect that traditional and formal vibe.
We kept it to one 8.5″x11″ sheet folded in half to keep the printing costs and assembly time down, but there was a lot of information to fit onto those pages! I received a thorough education on creating a Catholic worship aid (there are dos and don’ts that I never really considered before, but now I’m prepared to do it again if required!) and spent plenty of time monkeying with the text sizing and spacing to get everything to line up just-so. It was a challenge, but the end result is the perfect complement to their beautiful ceremony.
Pictures of the final product are below – please excuse the quality, as I’m still trying to find the places in the house with good lighting!
Thanks again, Kate and Chris! Much love to the both of you, and best wishes for a happy marriage!
