Design Note: When Belinda entered her invitation wording, she included a blank line on the invitation (as seen above, left) so that her guest’s name could be individually written on each invitation. A clever idea if you’re having a small wedding and want to add that extra personal touch!
FAVORITE WEDDING DETAIL: I loved the ceremony being held in the Japanese teahouse built by my father, who was also the celebrant. My mother walked me down the aisle which was a great way to include both parents.
FAVORITE/MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: We had bought a bottle of Dom Perignon Rose when we traveled through Champagne, France, some years ago. Once we arrived back at the reception, we snuck down to the teahouse and opened it together.
