Wedding Invitations

Our wedding invitations have been delivered! What a relief to be done with such an important element of our wedding. Truly a labor of love, I felt like I was a slave to these lovely pieces of paper for months, delicately handwriting each envelope in calligraphy, and now they are done! There is nothing that brings a bigger smile to my face than receiving a call, text, or email from friends and family to tell me how much they love our invitations. 

We had a very short list of expectations for our invitations. We wanted them to look timeless, elegant, and very traditional. I really wanted raised black ink {thermography}. Matt on the other hand was completely baffled by why anyone would pay for raised ink. He said “it’s not like anyone is going to run their fingers over the invitation to see if the letters are raised.” I won that battle. Most importantly, we did not want anything that was so expensive that the thought of someone throwing it away would make me cry.

I ended up finding my invitations at a little boutique called Torrence Stationary. I absolutely love how they turned out!


A few months ago, April of A. LizAdventures, informed me {during our calligraphy date} that if I sent a wedding invitation to the President, I would receive a congratulatory letter from him and the First Lady! 

Sooooo, we sent an invitation!..

And we received our card over the weekend!

I won’t spoil the inside surprise for you brides who are sending an invite!

I cannot tell you how exciting it is to receive a letter from The White House! To invite the President, mail your invitation at least six weeks in advance of your wedding day to:

The Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

 Happy Tuesday!
