Valerie's wedding invitation

In keeping with yesterday's stationery post, here's a little wedding invitation I did for a friend. I hope she won't mind, but I have to tell you her story. Valerie and her future husband were college acquaintances in Taiwan. Ten years later, they bumped into each other in front of a Starbucks in San Francisco. Both had moved to the US for grad school, then relocated to California on the exact same day many months before the fated Starbucks meeting. Pretty great, right?

Here are other designs that were part of the process. Congratulations, Valerie!

Love the design and the great story!

I met a woman who married and a few years later while looking at childhood photos with her mother-in-law pulled out a photo that was exactly like one of her own childhood photos. She and her future husband had sat on the elephant at the zoo together as children!

Li, actually Valerie is the poet--she gave me the words to put on the card!
