Happy new year everyone! My new year resolution for 2018 is to get better keeping a blog and share with you my Papel Amor journey. And here comes my first blog of the year 2018!
Nicole and Eamonn Hogan's wedding suite in 2016 has a special place in my heart. First of all, Nicole is a very old friend of mine that I love and admire a lot. When she asked me to create her wedding suite, I felt so honored. I was also so touched because she lives in London and she put a lot of trust in me to create her wedding invitations from a far away destination. Then there is the fact that I've been designing wedding invitations for quite some time but never had an old Hollywood glamour theme before. I really enjoyed working with black, champagne color, shimmery, gold glittery papers, art deco fonts and motifs. And last but least, they surprised me by using the monogram I designed for them all through their wedding. I had designed this monogram to be used for their wax seals. I couldn't attend their wedding which was such a bummer. But when I saw their wedding photos, I knew for sure that they liked this monogram a lot!
It was on the dancing floor!
It was on the bar decoration! And it was on the wedding cake! They were not just pretending to like it because I was their friend after all.
