Samantha at Hi Tech Imaging (one of Cara's employees) e-mailed Thursday to say that all of our wedding-related print pieces would be ready for pickup Friday. I headed out to Windy Hill/Cobb Parkway during lunch to pick up everything. Carefully packaged and organized in a box were invitations (scored and folded perfectly), direction cards, response postcards and some really nifty multipurpose folded notecards (for thank you notes or other wedding-related correspondences). All items were designed with Greg's careful and artistic touch and executed by Cara's team.
Samantha was kind enough to FedEx us the wedding invitation envelopes a week early so we could be addressing them while the other items were being finished. Dan and I stuffed the envelopes Friday night, successfully putting everything in the mail Saturday morning. Invites are going from California and the U.K. to upper Michigan and right here in Atlanta.
The monogram Greg designed is so neat that we've decided to do a signable ceramic platter (with the monogram in the center) in lieu of a traditional guest book. It's being handled by a downtown Decatur company (yay for supporting local businesses!) called That Pottery Place. Edith, the owner, has been taking very good care of us. I'll post a picture when we pick up the platter.
