  • Happy Movember


    During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

    Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

    At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world for Movember.

    This cause is a great and fun way to promote men's health! If you want more information or want to check out some Mo's, visit www.movember.com!

  • St. Paul and Fall

    As the weather turns colder, the "wedding season" starts to wind down. But for some adventurous couples who love the cool weather, the leaves turning colors, or just can not wait to be married, this is the perfect time of year.


    There are so many fun things that only this time of year brings! To make sure you take full advantage of the adventures you can have, I have made up an Autumn bucket list of fun activities to check off during the season!


    The St. Paul is a follow-up to one of our most popular wedding invitations The Riverside. The St. Paul contains a bold, colored stripe, 2 bordered photos and a large background photo. Due to its larger surface area, this invitation is better suited to large volumes of text than its counterpart. It is also a 5 x 7 card which is a more traditional sized invitation.

    The photographs were taken by Julie Harmsen, you can see more of her work at
