Kathryn + Wil | Bright + Happy Illinois Wedding

Hello again, from the other side of a hacked website, that came back from the dead! When I lost my site, and all my photos, I felt defeated and like I could never re-link all the images that were missing. So, I killed the idea of my blog, with sadness. Then… one day, I decided to switch hosts back to GoDaddy from Google, and poof! my website came back! Seriously though, my website is kind of my life source, and especially my contact form, which was the main source of heartburn! If you’re still having trouble with it, please let me know! I don’t know because I only fill it out like twice a year!

I’m so happy to be back to blogging, not because I have a lot to say, but so I can show you some gorgeous events in the whole! I understand that invitations are not everyone’s passion for their wedding day, and that’s okay! This blog is dedicating to showing you how gorgeous it can be when invitations and a clear vision help unite an event, and bring it all together!

There’s no better event to start back with, than Kathryn + Wil’s wedding! When Kathryn submitted her inspiration images through our contact form, I was immediately intrigued! They were so different than we were normally getting! Meeting with her and her mom was such a fun time, and her wedding invitations and photos show it! Her color scheme was navy, white and pink, with a pop of orange. She was admittedly very preppy, and loved the classic and clean looks. Think Kate Spade meets Country Club!

I dare you to try to keep from smiling at these photos!

Thank you, Kathryn + Wil for choosing Salt + Paperie to be a part of such a fun and happy day!
