Featured on Weddings Fresh!

Thank you so much to Dani over at Weddings Fresh for contacting me yesterday. She blogged about unique save the dates which happened to contain a couple of my designs. I left her a comment, and she followed up asking to write a post about my work. You can read the nice things she had to say here.

Featured Testimonial: Danielle!

Danielle and Sam were married on a golf course this Spring. Rather than do anything cheesy with golf balls, tees or clubs, I designed her materials with a polka dot theme. Take a close look at a golf ball, and you'll find "polka dots" covering the ball– that's where this idea came from. The corners of the invitation and information cards were rounded to further hint at a golf ball--and to jazz it up a little bit. The corners of the RSVP postcard remained square due to USPS mailing requirements.

Here's what Danielle has to say:
"Marit did a tremedous job on our save-the-date and wedding invitations. I wanted something simple and modern but not boring and that is exactly what she did. Marit was willing to modify and to suggest new ideas when my first concept did not come out quite like I wanted. She has such a tasteful eye.

The location of our wedding was on a golf course and I wanted the invite to hint at that theme but not to scream golf. The design she came up with had small dots in our coordinating colors that were perfect.

In addition to her creative side, Marit also has very strong customer service skills, She was willing to meet during the evenings and weekends. She also managed my project on a great budget. She is dedicated to making her clients happy.

She is a very talented designer and she helped to make this wedding so memorable. I would recommend her to everyone for any special event."

In the Press! Snippet and Ink

Two of my brides emailed me to let me know that the oh-so-talented Kathryn, over at Snippet and Ink created some inspiration boards as a guest post on coco+kelley. She put some beautiful ideas together for a "rehearsal dinner that was much more city." I am honored that she chose my concert poster save the dates to be a part of her inspiration board.

Thank you ladies! And, if you see my work featured anywhere--shoot me an email and let me know. I try to keep pretty good track of my press, but occasionally I miss out.

Featured Testimonial: Julie!

Julie is one of my few "local" brides. It was nice to meet with her and talk about her wedding face-to-face. It's a luxury that I don't often have. After a few discussions and a meeting or two, I came up with a design for her wedding at the Franklin Park Conservatory, a beautiful venue here in Columbus. The invite had three parts, which were placed into a pretty coco brown backer card that was held together by gold brads. I also created a custom wrap around label adorning the frond design from the invitation:

Here's what Julie had to say:
The invitations you went into the mail a week ago, and I've been so excited about the e-mails, calls and texts I've been getting from guests about how unique and beautiful they are. So many people are commenting about the wrap-around address/return address label -- and that was my favorite part too.

I really wanted something different than the million-layer, expensive-paper, everyone-has-them invitations, and that's exactly what Marit gave me. The invitation is unique, beautiful and is perfectly suited to our venue (Franklin Park Consevatory Palm House).

It's been great working with Marit, and I especially appreciated the quick reponses. I've already recommended her to friends, and I'll continue to.

Featured Testimonial: Paula!

I worked with Paula over a year ago, I can't believe it's been that long! I did these invitations for Amanda in a different color scheme. You may see them here.

Here's what Paula has to say:
"After looking at far too many pearly white invitations with embossed hearts, we nearly cried tears of joy when we came across Marit's work. Her style is the perfect mix of fun and sophistication. Even better, the postcard style response cards created less waste than traditional response cards. Marit was amazing to work with- she was extremely quick with sending proofs and very understanding when an indecisive bride kept changing her mind about the wording. I've recommended her to all the engaged couples we know!"

Featured Tesimonial: Maggie!

Maggie found me through JuneBug Weddings. We teamed up to make a concert style postcard for her upcoming beach wedding. She was a lot of fun, and really easy to work with (thanks Maggie!!) and I am really looking forward to working with her on her invitations. Maggie was nice enough to send me this photo of her postcards--and even more kind to put her testimonial on her own website!

Our Save the Dates came in yesterday, and we're thrilled with them. They're created by Marit Hanson, who created fantastic "concert poster" invitations that served as the inspiration for these. As concert postcards, our Save the Dates are relatively inexpensive, but still entirely memorable... and they completely serve the purpose of getting the word out about our wedding early so that folks can put it on their calendars.

We wanted to do something really fun and "us" for our Save the Dates... either a live music theme or a travel theme. When it came down to it, these were the ones we wanted blown up and framed in our home... and so that was that. I love how fun and different they are. And who knows... originally we thought we'd go with fun Save the Dates and more traditional invitations, but maybe we'll do all-around fun. Kinda sounds like us... ;-)

Kudos to the great JunebugWeddings Save the Date Inspiration Gallery on flickr for tipping me off about Marit!
