It's a nice day for a (Black and) White Wedding!

Let me let you in on a little secret; I LOVE black and white weddings. The classic-ness (is that a word?) of the black mixed with the light and airy white. It's timeless and I think a perfect choice for any wedding.

Let me tell you about Michelle, she was my first official friend when I moved to Valparaiso, Indiana. Her and I used to drink Oliver soft red wine in her garage and talk for hours. She taught me how to make guacamole. She introduced me to Havarti cheese. She's one of those friends that I actually ENJOYED shopping with (although - it was much harder on the wallet, whoops!). She has a beautiful son, Aiden - and him and I loved to hate each other...and by hate, I mean we were best buddies. He liked to sing to Michelle. He liked to fall asleep in his car seat after eating powdered donuts. She's short but she can pack a mighty punch - she is one strong woman who I am honored to call, a friend. George most definitely is lucky to have found this lady.

When she asked me if I would help her with her wedding invitations. I was honored. I was honored that she would choose me to help with the identity of her classic black & white wedding (you figured I was going somewhere with the black and white, didn't you?). Well, bingo. Michelle told me that they were going for a classic, Audrey Hepburn style wedding. So, this is what I came up with for their big fat greek wedding. :)

Their logo. As a sidenote - George is fabulous to Michelle. They are one great couple that I ALWAYS enjoyed being around.

Inside of program. Lots of I said - she had a big fat Greek wedding!! :)

Their invitation. Holy black you are GORGEOUS.

The menu was my favorite thing to design and with a caterer like Bistro 157 - it's hard to go wrong.

Michelle, I wish you years of wedded bliss and a lifetime of fun and happiness. BOOMSHAKALAKA. Love you and miss you dearly.

  1. Thank you for this post. I love the black and white theme of the menus! I recently was looking for a menu design to compliment my new restaurant.
