Mr and Mrs Calienda

Updated: Sep 27, 2020

Hi Everyone.

This post is all about the brand spanking new Mr and Mrs Calienda. Louise came to me quite a while ago now and from the moment I met her, I knew she was a bubbly, wonderful lady. I have known her husband for many many years so was nice seeing him again when they came over. They already had their theme in mind... gold and white. The first item I created for Rob and Louise was their save the dates:

The font is called Blacksword and I loved using it as its not a typical wedding font. The second font is Bodoni 72 which I feel compliments it well. These were printed on a shimmery gold card stock by After a few months, Louise came back and we set out on a (large) list of items she would like. Louise had amazing ideas but just needed me to execute them. The main item was the actual wedding invitation. Rob and Louise went for a pocketfold style with 3 inserts:

Here is one of the invitations in the gold pocketfold:

Then I created her table numbers which she put in gold frames:

I created a sign for this gorgeous terrarium. Its instead of a typical guest book:

It worked so well. I also made the message cards to match. As you can see, the fonts are the same throughout and the 2 gold hearts. It tied everything together nicely. Rob and Louise's table plan was great! They bought shot glasses for each guest and stuck a sticker on the top which I designed with the guests name on and table number. I did a sign to accompany it saying 'Find your shot to find your seat'. In total I created 4 frames:

I created menus for all of the day guests. These slipped into the napkins:

Two of my favourite items were a selfie board and mirror. Eastington Park is set in wonderful grounds so Rob and Louise wanted a nice selfie board hanging from a tree to frame the beautiful landscape:

They placed a basket of props next to it. Instead of a welcome board, Louise had a gorgeous (very large) mirror she wanted me to write on. I did try and use my chalkpen but I wasn't happy with it so I used vinyl instead and here is the mirror in all its glory:

I am glad my pens failed me as I think that the black and gold look very classy on the mirror. One of the times Louise came over, I showed her my ring cushion made from cut offs from my wedding dress. Louise had the wonderful idea of combining her cut offs with parts of her mothers wedding dress. A friend of mine made this for Louise which I think is very special:

Now my children have the rest of Louise's mothers wedding dress to play with which they are very happy about. This slate was held by the brides gorgeous little niece:

Thank you Rob and Louise for asking me to help with so many items for your wedding. I wish Mr and Mrs Calienda a lifetime of love and happiness.
