This is the moment, the moment we love! That moment when a bride first feels like a bride! The first twirl in the dress, the feel of the lace and satin, the anticipation of what is next.

Oh, my! Give us classic or give us death. Actually, give us fabulous paper, whether it is classic or modern, we sort of swoon over it ALL!  We are of the belief that sending out an invitation is like giving the first glimpse of what is to come. What's your style? Classic, contemporary? Whimsical, dramatic? Natalie and Jacob's classic style perfectly befit their day.  Photography @erinhoytphotography stationery @charmstudio_
