We are officially up and running after a very long Christmas holiday in Italy – food, lovely friends and relaxing chatting.
So I’m ready to start with a lot of energy and today I would like to talk about wedding stationary!
I always love receiving letters and cards by post…I love the idea someone has thought of me and more than that I like discovering what there is inside: thoughts, drawings and all the other feelings and emotions you can find nested in between the hand writing lines.
I would like to show you Valentina‘s diy save the date cards which might have already reached her guests! Valentina lives in London but she is Italian and she will get married to an American guy next June in her hometown of Pescara.
She chose an elegant gray with baroque frames and rhinestones to give some luxe. I really like them and more than that I love the story of her engagement day which you can read after the pictures!
About a month ago, something beautiful happened…and I am now ready to tell you all about it!
It was Tuesday, September the 14th and I spent the whole day at a conference. Rob had booked a table at one of our favourite restaurants down the Tower Bridge area. It’s the restaurant we chose to have dinner in when Rob finally found a job in London, now more than four years ago.
While walking, it started pouring down and it rained so hard I almost wanted to cry! We put our hoods up and started running but when we were very close to the Tower Bridge Rob stopped; I turned over to look at him and he was holding a ring. There, in our favourite spot in London, under a torrential rain, he asked me to marry him. It was so bad and so perfect at the same time!
And the marvellous thing was that the ring was fake! So I looked at him and laughed and cried at the same time. It seemed to be in the set of a movie, the rain for a moment didn’t seem to bother us, it was just the two of us, embracing each other, with the lights of the majestic Tower Bridge behind us. Of course I said yes! Rob and I have been talking about wedding, marriage, honeymoon, kids, growing old together, retirement…since the very first night we met.
It was an easy question! I said yes without a ring, and I said yes with a plastic ring! The day after, we met for lunch, he told me he was going to be around my office, so we thought it would be nice to have lunch together. Instead, we *had lunch* at De Beers in the so elegant Bond Street and I confirmed my yes. Rob picked Aura, a very beautiful ring. I think it’s delicious!
