♥ sealed with a kiss.

with just one month until the wedding-- (yikes!!!)
i thought, what greater time than today to share with you
 our wedding invitations.

nick and i really wanted a garden-like, lord of the rings-inspired
quality to our invitations-- one which invoked a feeling of end of summer magic
and the tactile-ness that you don't get from most everyday invites.

i was beyond ecstatic when i found the wedding handkerchief invitation of
 my dreams from the endlessly talented rachel wiles' etsy shop, benign objects.

combined with the reply cards from wedding paper divas,
the kraft paper envelopes from paper presentation,
and the hand-drawn map-i have to say 
nick and i are pretty in love.
