I'm so excited to finally share our wedding invitations! Due to the untimely Canada Post strike, I'm not sure if all our friends & family out of province have received them, but I couldn't wait any longer!

It took us awhile to decide on a design. Turns out, it's quite tricky to decide on something when both of you care so much about it. But with a little compromising and a bit of tweaking, Mike designed one that we both absolutely loved.

Mike gets complete credit for the invitations. He designed every little detail on these invitations and spent hours printing, cutting, trimming, typing address labels on the typewriter, tying bows, stamping etc. I fell more in love with him every minute.

If you want to see the adorable wedding website he whipped up, look here.

  14. So so so cute!!

    I'm still trying to figure out what our wedding invitations will look like... It's a bit difficult to decide. Plus, more than half will probably have to be in Spanish haha.

    Also, congrats on contributing to this new magazine! I can't wait to see it alive.

  22. hey cute girl! to answer your question: it is cold here at night. and mornings. verrrry cold, like in the 40s probably. it gets chilly chilly chilly! and up in amaru where we're working it's even colder - it's high up in the mountains so we gotta bundle up to stay warm! and we went ahead and got the canon 7D, so now we have that in addition to the 5D mk ii so we can both film up here! loving it so far! in the future i'm investing in a prime 50 mm lens... gahhh i need it
