Wedding Announcements: Huckleberry Paper

So now that our wedding announcements have been sent out and all is said and done, I'd like to share a little bit of their history with you. They were hand painted for us by the fabulous Haley Smith who started Huckleberry Paper!

Haley is the sweetest: she is stunning AND talented. (not fair, right?) I met Haley when we were 10 and 11 at church, when we both lived in Saint Louis. I always thought she was the coolest, and when she asked me to come to her house and hangout one day I was STOKED. She was artistic from the start I suppose, and she showed me some fashion sketches she did. ( is it creepy that I remember all of this? maybe, but that's how I do). She even let me spend the night one time in which I preceded to fall off of the top bunk of her bunk bed and her parents came and picked me up after hearing a loud thud. I remembered none of it the next morning…

She and I both moved and I found her sometime later on Facebook, and saw the beautiful things she was painting! She offered to do my wedding announcements and I was ON BOARD. I mean have you seen her work? Well if not you will soon;) 

She was so good about calling me and asking what colors I wanted, even the size of flowers. I pretty much just left that up to her since I trusted her judgment there. It was so lovely to have something that is so beautiful AND totally one of a kind for our wedding. I could not be more happy with how they turned out.
