Featured Vendor: Basic Invite

Hey guys. It's been awhile since I've written a blog post! I have been fortunate to work with some amazing couples this year and I can't wait to share all of the goodness from spring, summer, and fall weddings! Right now I am booking family photo sessions for those holiday cards so be sure to contact me to reserve your spot! I will only be booking until the first week of December this year, so there's really just one month left to procrastinate people :)

And speaking of family photos, I just ordered my holiday cards from Basic Invite this year and wanted to tell all of you happily engaged couples about their wedding invitations! I've partnered with Basic Invite to spread the word about their lovely custom printing services. I always recommend Basic Invite to my brides, family clients, and graduating seniors.

A few things I love about Basic Invite:

First, they are a national online company based in St. George! I love supporting local businesses so this is a win-win. Their website is easy to use and find exactly what you’re looking for. You can customize your invitation online through their website so it’s quick, easy, and affordable too :)

With Basic Invite, you can customize your invitations with over 180 color options and 800 wedding invitation sets. Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards! They also just rolled out a new rose gold foil (who doesn't love rose gold?)

It’s also one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

They have over 40 different colors of envelopes available so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. Even better, all of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. No licking envelopes for you!

If you're anything like me, collecting addresses is such a pain. I still have half-addressed cards sitting in my drawer from last year. I love that Basic Invite has a free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing!

And last but not least, Basic Invite has wedding websites that are completely customizable just like their wedding invitations! They are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite!

Las Vegas Love

I have so much love for Trish and Jake and their beautiful wedding! When I first talked with Trish about her plans she told me about her ideas for 1920s style cabanas, lace doily lanterns, and a mariachi band at the Old Mormon Fort in Historical Las Vegas. I was immediately hooked! But my favorite part of this wedding wasn't the details, it was the people. The joy and love not only between the bride and groom but the entire family. It was the happiest occasion. Thanks for having me along, friends. I loved every moment!

Tara & Mike at the Salt Flats

I loved working with Tara and Mike and their pup Bentley! It was pretty freezing cold at the Salt Flats for their engagement session, but oh so worth it. I'm looking forward to their wedding in Salt Lake this summer!
