A while ago I've met Deborah and Steven from Canada in Etsy cyberspace when they've placed an order for some of my handmade airplane embellishments. The little airplanes were to be used as a finishing touch on wedding invitations to a destination wedding in Cuba. (Nik, Deborah and Steven's son, will be getting married to future daughter-in-law Alicia.)
I was really thrilled when Deborah and Steven shared some pictures of how the airplanes were used on Alicia and Nik's wedding invitations. They were also kind enough to give me permission to share a picture of the invitation here on my blog and now, with the RSVP's already coming in, I can do so without spoiling the surprise for the guests.
According to Deborah the response to the invitation was really great and family and friends from all over the world will be attending the wedding in Cuba. I just love the design of the wedding invitation and the combination of the kraft paper with the more colorful airmail border. I also love how the Cuban monogram sets the invitation apart from other travel-themed invitations. It really makes the invitation unique and gives it a lovely personal touch!
Seeing my little airplanes in action on such a lovely invitation is really special to me. It always makes my heart skip a beat when someone chooses something that I've designed and made to become part of an important celebration in their lives!
Thank you to Deborah, Steven, Nik and Alicia for supporting my little venture and for sharing with us. I hope you will have loads of fun while preparing for the wedding. My wish for you is a beautiful wedding day full of dreams coming true, love and happiness. May your wedding day be the perfect beginning to an amazing happily-ever-after, Alica and Nik!
