There are some who start as clients and quickly become friends, like sweet Whitney. I just adore this girl and we seriously joke around that it was friend love at first site. Thanks to Hickory Street Annex for the amazing backdrop and to Whitney & Stephen for making it all happen!! I cannot wait for their lovely day in Dallas next May!!

HAD&P Wedding Graphic Design (From Fun to Formal)

Today's post is written by Elizabeth Locke, a freelance writer and blogger.  When Megan and Clayton announced Charleston, South Carolina as their destination wedding location, HAD&P was honored and excited to design a full package of invitations, ranging from the bachelorette party to hospitality cards to the wedding program.

Megan’s wedding colors were navy and coral. Navy is a classic color that incorporated the natural aspects of the sea and harbor into the wedding theme. Coral accents brightened the theme through flowers and decorations. The color combination created striking invitations, save the date cards and welcome brochures that reflected the bride’s chic taste.  Pineapples were included in the designs as a welcoming motif, representing hospitality and southern charm.

From the engagement to the wedding weekend, HAD&P designed the following to celebrate the couple:

  • Save the date
  • Personalized stationary and thank you cards
  • Bachelorette party invitations
  • Kitchen shower invitations and coordinating recipe cards
  • Cocktail party invitations
  • Welcome party invitations and brochure
  • Wedding program

These beautiful save-the-date cards were designed to communicate important wedding details to guests. The tri-fold included geometric prints and accents of lace.

The kitchen shower invitations and recipe cards were fun, bright and festive.

The nautical themes extended to the cocktail, bachelorette and welcome party invitations.

The navy and cream wedding programs were enhanced by lace accents on the front.

Congratulations to the wonderful couple! We loved celebrating this special time with you. To see more, check out Megan and Clayton's engagement photos and bridal photos.

Gif Created on Make A Gif

There's nothing better than loving new clients within the first 20 minutes of meeting them.  Jon, Charla & I met over a beer (and no, that's not what won me over) in Dallas a few weeks back before we headed out to take their adorable engagement photos. Within the first hour of knowing this couple, I decided that they had fallen straight out of a romantic comedy. They're funny, witty, charming, and very easy on the eyes! They're very in love and truly compliment each other perfectly. They had me laughing so much that I suffered from some camera shake on one or two outtakes (and no, that's wasn't from the beer either). They both live and work in Dallas and will be getting married this March in Fredericksburg. Turns out we have a lot of friends in common and from the looks of it, will probably become friends as well! I'm SO excited to be a part of their wedding day, and absolutely LOVE their style. The place they are having the wedding and reception is called the Hoffman Haus, and is hill-country-rustic meets Anthropologie. I know, it sounds perfect right? I cannot wait to photograph is and report back after their big day, so stay tuned all you fashionista people....and enjoy this fabulous couple's engagement session!

life's a flash, capture accordingly
