Real Wedding: Margaret and Yancy, II
March 17, 2009
North America

I love today's featured wedding for two reasons...the first, is the gorgeous photography by one of our favorite Little Black Book members, 5ive15ifteen. The second is that the bride tended to the details with such a thoughtful energy, such an edited voice. She paid attention to the little things, those that she knew would really make for a lovely wedding style. Love that.

From Margaret...

The invitations were designed by me, myself and my husband! I have a background in photo + graphic design, and knew what I wanted, and once we settled on the colours, it was just a matter of sitting down and coming up with a design that was clean, elegant and romantic. We loved our invites, the final product turned out just fabulous. [if I do say so myself]

For paper we used Cards and Pockets that we shipped them to Canada, and it was still significantly cheaper than buying it from a place in the GTA. I also did the place cards, and the table numbers and menus for the table [Dollarama had awesome photo clips], as well as the tags for the favors.

The photography was done by 5ive15ifteen photo company. Boy was this a hard decision…not only was this one of the first things on my list, but this was the most nerve wracking decision to make. We were so happy with the service, and the work…I wanted a bare bones package, so basically the shooting, and high res digital negs, so they gave us a custom quote. This was a splurge, but we could not be happier with the way they were on the wedding day [Anthony + Marco – 2nd shooter], the way both Yancy and I could be so comfortable in front of the camera, and the way I could [almost] relax, trusting that Anthony and I were on the same page with what we wanted and what they were shooting.

More from the STUNNING reception on the way!
