Debbie and Ale

Debbie and Ale are planning a wedding that not only represents the union of their lives- but also of two geographies, Chicago, Illinois and Seville, Spain. What better way to represent that than our accordion invitation with the skyline of Chicago spilling into the skyline of Seville?! We literally split the panels equally between English and Spanish text- the English hovering over the Chicago skyline and the Spanish hovering over the Seville skyline.

Debbie sent me the inspiration board shots so I could appreciate the boldness of the blue they wanted to capture. Aaaah, bright blue- what a vibrant way to say “Welcome to Chicago! Welcome to our wedding!”
Thank you for another fun invitation Debbie and Ale!

Love and the forces of the Universe


“The four fundamental forces of physics: electromagnetism, strong nuclear interaction, weak nuclear interaction, and gravity. We’ve been talking here about the forces that bind the universe. But what binds humans? Love. Powerful in small spaces and yet with profound affect in distances, love defies time. Outliving its source and object, love is faster than light, for light requires time in order to travel through space but love reaches its object instantaneously. Love journeys forever into infinity and is here binding together two lives.”

Ok- so I first saw this on one of our bride’s wedding website and thought it was an amazing quote. So I googled it… and turns out it’s from the TV show Numb3rs. So way to go random writer living in LA probably not getting any credit for this! Your words have traveled the blogosphere and in my google search it came up on A.LOT. of other wedding websites.

But it’s so true and profound, so I’m happy to share it with you all. ESPECIALLY since we’ve been sucked into the land of “stupid busy”, as another wedding vendor coined the phrase and haven’t had any time to post. I’m going to make a point to snap picks of jobs as they go out the door though so at least you can be updated on what’s shaking at Spilled Ink Press headquarters.
