I cannot believe that January is almost over! It has been a great start to 2015, and we are honored to be featured in Ruffled's blog. Tickled Ink participated in the Big Fake Wedding, (which used to be called the Not wedding) Chattanooga's first wedding show with this unique company. The concept of the Big Fake Wedding is that it actually puts on a real/fake wedding (or vow renewal) with real vendors participating, and real couples, guests, etc. The theme of the show for Chattanooga's first Big Fake Wedding was a lush vintage summer garden theme with roses and fall colors. I hand drew the roses and the invitations were letterpress printed with red and eggplant (which were the colors of the wedding). The ceremony programs were flat printed with kraft backers mounted on the back. We loved being part of such a fun and creative bridal show! Below are the photos of the two colored letterpress (and hand drawn) invitations, and the flat printed ceremony programs. I have lots of photos, because there different photographers taking the pictures. I love having my invitations professionally taken! Here is the link for the photographers that took these beautiful photos.
So much has been going on with Tickled Ink this summer. I have been working on some great new custom designs, and this Fall Tickled Ink is excited to be a part of the first Not Wedding on November 19th! We will write more about this exciting upcoming "alternative" bridal show. In a nutshell, the Not Wedding is a big fake wedding that actually has a real couple renewing their vows (so not truly fake) and I am one of the vendors that is a part of this event. It is a creative way for brides to see how we work with weddings. I cannot wait!
OK, now to the fact that this is the first blog post.... I am not sure if we can still recover our old posts from our last website that we had for almost five years, but if not... I will try to go back and rewrite them (huge bummer!) or just write new, even better blog posts :)! Til then!
