a wedding and a baby

I just love weddings. Love. Love. Love!

Really, if you've known me for a while, like before I ever got married, that statement could possibly surprise you. What would be even more surprising would be me saying that I love babies. I've been known to say that I don't do babies. And I really don't. Just my own. But I love, love, love my own babies.

But really, I love weddings. I think they are just so happy and so fun. I always want to get re-married, to my same husband, of course. I just remember how fun my own wedding day was. I was completely unaware of anything going on around me, besides my getting married. My cheeks burned from smiling. It was a fantastic day. Seriously, like the best! 

Kyle and I, six years ago!

When I learned that my sister-in-law, Chelsie, was engaged I was ecstatic!  Not just because I was super happy for her, because she was happy, but also because that meant I was going to get to go to a wedding, and be a part of it- all of it.

The new couple- aren't they so cute?

Kyle is an industrial designer by profession. I worked for many years, like 7, in copying and printing at BYU, and loved it. Our assignment: to design and print the wedding announcements. Alright!

I started playing around on the computer with some design ideas. Kyle came in, took pieces of them, refined it, and made it look awesome.

We were going for something simple and clean, without being boring. Mission accomplished, in my opinion.  We had the announcements printed with BYU Print Services, and they did a great job. The colors and the print looked great. Everyone was happy.

I spent all of last week back home in Washington visiting family and friends, and wedding prepping and partying it up. Included in that was a bridal shower, my other sister-in-law, Brittany, and I threw for bride Chelsie. This is the bridal shower invitation I designed.
The bridal shower turned out really well, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I meant to take pictures of it, but I really was too busy getting everything put together to worry about that. It wasn't anything fancy, but there were a lot of people there who love Chelsie, and that is what mattered most.

While I'm sharing, here is the birth announcement I made of our newest daughter, Keira.
I know the color is light and difficult to read on screen, but it printed darker at Costco. I'm still pretty pleased with how it turned out.


  1. I'd say you have a knack for design!

  2. You're cards are all amazing. And so sad we missed you guys!

  3. Man I love all of those! Especially Chelsie's wedding invitations! So modern and fun, but still classy. :) You're so talened Eaner/Kenae!!

  4. I'm SO happy with what all you and Ky did for the wedding and sharing your amazing talents! I am so blessed to have a daughter-in-law like you!!!! and I REALLY love your babies too!!!
