A jack+bean Wedding: Deanna & David

Let me preface this post by saying that I have been so lucky since launching this little business venture. Getting to know the clients has just been incredible. Every single connection I've been able to make has been through word of mouth. That takes me to Deanna, whom I first got to know through Twitter, of all places. Actually, once upon a time in a pre-jack+bean world, I had created a blog that somehow had the same name as her existing blog! Small world. 

When Deanna reached out to me to do her wedding paper goods, I was thrilled - I knew she had great taste and I knew we agreed on two big things:  the color gold and the use (or overuse) of polka dots. We worked together on her shower invitations, shower thank you notes, wedding invitations, wrap labels, place cards, menus, cookie box stickers, miscellaneous signs, and finally, wedding thank you notes! To say she (plus her mom and now mother-in-law!) placed her trust in me is an understatement, and she's already been passing along the good j+b word, for which I'm seriously grateful.

Without further ado, the first official jack+bean wedding. All photos taken by hot metal studio, amazing Pittsburgh photographers (who also took the photo of me along the right side)!
Wedding invitations. Those envelope liners make me SO HAPPY. We were inspired by an invitation suite we found on Pinterest and went from there. The "T" mark became their wedding logo and we went with it. We also put together wrap labels that were just darling. 
Another fun fact about Deanna, her dad may be the most crafty person, ever. The things he did for this wedding makes me think the man has a future in wedding design. He even made a little gadget that helps me put wrap labels on perfectly straight! 

Talk about a great entrance! Every single detail was so well-thought-out and beautiful. They made a great venue look even more amazing!
Deanna had the idea to put together these little stand up fun facts as conversation starters for their cocktail hour. From what I saw in the photos, they looked like a hit! Also, my husband and I lived on Howe Street when he proposed to me, so that little Shadyside street is so special to me.

When the bride works in PR, having an Instagram sign is critical. : ) 

The world famous Pittsburgh Cookie Table. Now, these next two photos have nothing to do with me or wedding paper goods, but I just had to share the pretty. There is a huge place in my heart for oversized gold balloons.
The happy couple. So, so sweet.

Thanks again to Deanna for being such a fabulous bride to work with. She sent me the most darling thank you package today, and I am so lucky to have met such a wonderful Pittsburgher!
