Command Love

Mike and I have a wedding venue! There is light! With our wedding now slightly over a year away, we’re slowly getting our stuff together. I’m of the mind set that if we do little things each week, each month, we won’t get this giant bill next September. Am I right? Or am I just getting too excited to start my wedding tidbits?!

Regardless, I designed some wedding seals from waxseals.com for a wedding invitation that I designed earlier in June and I was just so tickled with them, I jumped the gun and designed and ordered some for our wedding! I have a look and a feel for our wedding in my mind, but have yet to actually get anything down on paper. My future last name will start with an “H,” my least favourite letter to draw… I came up with almost 10 seal designs with an “H” incorporated into it, but none were great. Mike and I couldn’t agree on a design. So we scrapped it all together/I scrapped it all together and came up with command love. Simple. Cute. To the point. Pun to MAC users. And to be honest, it wasn’t until I opened the box that I thought, what do PC users use as command? Is it alt? That little window icon? I can’t even tell you the last time I used a PC keyboard. Oops. My apologies in advance for those who receive our invite and don’t get it. Or is the command symbol well known enough for everyone to get it? This is why we user test, isn’t it…

Too late! Below are our beautiful gold seals for our envelopes which I don’t know the colour of, and for the invites that are yet to be designed. But this little detail just melts my heart.

Drawings by hand are so intimate. It’s like I can feel each stroke, each curve.

This is a gorgeous book. In the Wilds.
