Wedding Stationery: Wouter & Dorita

Photograph by Eppel Fotografie
I was so thrilled to collaborate with the lovely, and very talented bride-to-be, Dorita, last year. Recently she has sent me a link to her wedding photos and I fell completely in love with every little detail of Wouter and Dorita's wedding. The swoon-worthy wedding was photographed by the amazing Ralf Czogallik from Eppel Photography. You can see more lovely photos and read all about it here.

Dorita was from Canada, but at the time that we met on Etsy, she was already living in the Netherlands and planning her wedding to Wouter.

Dorita wanted to make her own wedding invitations, and she asked me to help out with the paper sleeve (or pouch) that she could not make herself.. She sent me a copy of the wedding logo that she designed for the wedding stationery and I converted the image into a digital design suitable for cutting into paper. The next step was to die-cut the paper sleeves for Dorita's invitations from her paper of choice and to then laser-cut the wedding logo into each die-cut. Once all the sleeves were cut out, they were sent to Dorita for assembly. Dorita took care of the graphic design, printing and assembly of the invitations. Below is a photo of her beautiful invitations!

These are the die-cuts that I've made for Dorita, before they were assembled.

I wasn't involved in the creation of Dorita's menu's, but I wanted to share a photo anyway, as they were really pretty too!

I would like to say a special thank you to Dorita. She was such a lovely person to work with! And Wouter, thank you for patiently making sure that the paper was exactly where Dorita and I needed it to be at any given time!

Don't you just love this photo? A beautiful, gentle moment between a bride and a doggy ... 

 I'm the mommy of a Miniature Doberman Pincher and I am always amazed at how Jolie's little matchstick legs can carry her weight! Perhaps my appreciation for Jolie's skinny little legs is the reason why I love this photo so much! Just imagine having to carry your weigt on little legs so thin that you can wear a ring as a bracelet! And what a great way to include a close-up of the wedding rings before the wedding!
