Some amazing shots from one of our vendors

So it's Monday morning April 19th.  By now, I am probably almost through our first full day on the Gold Coast in Australia!  But I promised some scheduled posts while I am away to keep everyone busy.  And of course, if at all possible, I'll make some stops by the blog when we check in for internet access while on the other side of the world - unfortunately, I've got to keep up with the family and office while we're gone since it will be a full two weeks away!

Anyway, when I came across this amazing coordinator's blog (Joyful Weddings and Events) and saw pictures of an aqua and dark red wedding at our very own venue, I became obsessed!  And so I was so thrilled when they shared the names of their vendors.  That's how I found Stacia of Serendipity Design.

I contacted her and we worked through some ideas about my invitations as well as a lot of other stationery needs and the costs involved.  Stacia was willing to work around my budget and with some ideas like having me assemble the invites myself, I was able to get them for a very good price and even better quality.  When you consider that these were custom designed invites with photos on them as well as an extra insert card, well, the whole thing made me giddy!

I worked with Stacia via e-mail (she is in Chicago) for over six months!  We would go back and forth on revisions and ideas and eventually came up with the final product which the guests all loved! 

She has way better photos on her blog than I could ever have taken with my camera so I thought I'd share some with you:

Click here to see the blog posting on her site and be sure to check out her work...she is an amazing vendor to work with and has some high quality but still affordable work you should look into!
