I received an email not long ago from a client inquiring about escort cards. She said they would be on "vintage ledger paper." I said "tell me more about the materials you are using!" What resulted was a pretty incredible trade. I did the escort cards (pictured above). And Phyllis sent me boxes of her wonderful wedding decorations, including these amazing chalkboards, to use at my wedding. I'm pretty sure I got the better end of the deal. You can see more of Phyllis and Dan's beautiful wedding, photographed by Sarah K. Chen, over at Once Wed.
I spent last weekend dyeing parachutes for the bridesmaids skirts. It was awfully gratifying. I have lots to say on this process if you decide you too are crazy enough to undertake it. Let's just say that ProChemical saved my life.
