Their kids are getting married and she knew where to find the reference. Inspirational organizationing abilities, no? It’s so wonderful to hear the Trinidadian accent I grew up with, and the warmth and charm the Islands infuse into their inhabitants. I have to go downstairs and find a bunch of the most yummy invitations we ever made here at Studio Z Mendocino RIGHT NOW!!!

Going through my archives of hundreds and hundreds of wedding invitations we have done over the last few years makes me very happy. Each one expresses a certain personality — the bride and groom who love each other enough to make this brave, joyous trip down the aisle — and I get to participate, interpreting that desire to invite everyone in their lives who ever loved them.
