Here are a few more tips and ideas from Ceci New York!

Another style is the pocket folder - instead of a book with many pages, you just have a cover that opens and presents your invitation - all your necessary info cards are held neatly off to the side in the pocket. Everything is organized perfectly for your guests. Take it a step further and add something different than paper - I had these hand sewn...

Personalized style shines through with this punk rock invite below. "Dare to be different" is an understatement with this piece. Inspired by a DADA art collage, the back of the invite is full of personalized phrases and words that represent the couple and their relationship. Silk screened in charcoal grey and black with a pop of hot pink, the collage shows through...

EMOTIONAL IMPACT

Everyone always asks me why I became an event cinematographer and I have a simple answer... because I love to create viewable moments that cause someone to FEEL as if they were there and EXPERIENCE the emotions of such a momentous day.

Wedding Cinematography by Elysium

Elysium is far and away one of the best cinematographers out there. Their work is intimate, it's artistic but most of all it's real. I know that many of you don't necessarily have the budget for a cinematography, BUT if you can make it work...you absolutely should. I pull out my own wedding video all the time...it helps me to stay connected to my husband and to a day that I put so much love and energy into.

I could babble on forever, but instead, I'd rather introduce you to Julie...
