Making of the Wedding: Behind the Event

May 12, 2009


Being that I have event planning in my blood, it’s hard to wrap up an event without sharing some of the magnificent resources that I came across during the planning.  I’m all about sharing and I was so darn pleased with how it went off.  So what we’re going to do is each day I’m going to feature one of the different vendors that I used and provide a link to either their site and/or give you their contact information directly.  Because we all know that the best resources always come from referrals, don’t we!

Today’s featured vendor is THE PAPIER PALETTE.  Ashlie Kalkofen is the owner/operator of this design-oriented wedding operation.  She listens to you describe the themes and colors that you want present in your event and custom-designs a unique identity system for the day.  I ordered the following paper pieces from her, all of which coordinated: Invites, Thank You’s, Placecards, Table Numbers, Groom’s Dinner Invites, DVD covers, Menus and signs.

What I loved most about working with Ashlie is that she just had this intuitive sense for exactly what I wanted.  I’d describe an idea vaguely and she’d come back with a couple working concepts, one of which typically nailed what I was looking for.  Why I’d recommend using her is that she paid exceptional attention to detail, was easy to get in touch with and had incredibly reasonable rates for custom-designed product because she’s just getting into the business.  I knew from the instant I sent out my invites that going with Ashlie was the right idea because my guests didn’t reply about how excited they were to come, they just responded about how much they liked the invite!  Check her out… she knows how to put a signature look on events!  Here are some of my favorite pieces from our event:
