Every couple has a unique story to tell …
I never imagined my dog Kody would be responsible for introducing me to my future husband. Our story begins after moving into a new apartment building in Edgewater, NJ. While walking Kody around the complex, my new neighbor Keith came over to pet him. Thanks to Kody, we began a four-year friendship, which turned into a romance. Six months later on Christmas Eve, Keith proposed to me while Kody — wearing an engagement ring tied around his neck — sat by his side.
As a graphic designer, I thought it would be special to design our “Save the Date” cards with an illustration of Keith, me and of course Kody. Soon I decided to incorporate all the aspects of our relationship — including the upcoming events leading up to and well beyond the big day — into a story. Personalizing all the wedding announcements and invitations for this special time created a one-of-a-kind wedding theme and a memorable event for our guests.
Every essential element of my wedding — from invitations to photography, flowers, music and caterer — inspired an elegant celebration for our friends and family as well as my groom Keith and me. It was the perfect day I always dreamed it would be and will always remember.
Your story may begin where you met in your hometown, at school, on vacation or — as Keith and I did — in our own backyard. Possibly you met through an online dating service or through connections at work. Perhaps you share a common interest in a professional sports team or in your own leisure activity of golf, tennis, skiing, hiking, running or bicycling. Maybe you both have a mutual love of travel, art, wine, food, movies, theatre or books.
… Castagne Graphics offers custom designed wedding invitations, announcements and more as you envision to tell your special story and reflect your unique style as a couple.
