Love at The Ranch: Reception Signage

A while back, I asked all of you for help with our reception signs. You offered up your best rhymes but nothing clicked until I got home and looked at my stamp collection. I'd bought an adorable stamp from Hobby Lobby with the word "Love" on it, which I used on our out-of-town bags. I decided I'd make the signs cohesive by incorporating the stamp into each sign somehow.

I sent the stamped stationary off to Pretty Pen Jen in Texas and here's what I got back. I used samples of Crane's Lettra letterpress paper for this signage. Yay for free paper!

Pie Bar Sign:
"Love is sweet
Try as many flavors as you like"

Escort Card Sign:
"For the Love of horses
Find your name
Your tag matches the image at your table"

Birdcage Guest Book Sign:
"Leave well wishes for the Love birds
Drop your postcard in the cage"

Photo Booth Sign:
"Love the camera
Press the button
You have 10 seconds to strike a pose"

And here are a few more pieces Pretty Pen Jen wrote out for us:

How did we get here?

I spent a peaceful morning with my girls.
Followed by a rowdy bachelorette party.
Two days before the wedding, we fought.
Then, we made up.
On Saturday, Mr. CB recuperated while I hiked with friends.
We celebrated our rehearsal dinner.
Mr. CB and I had our First Look.
Our wedding party braved the cold for photos.
We all lined up for the ceremony.
The wedding party walked (and performed hand shakes).
Papa CB walked Ms (soon to be Mrs.) CB down the aisle.
Our ceremony began with a song from Grandma Cowboy Boot.
And ended with a kiss.
We hugged and took some family portraits.
Then our guests to to see The Details.
Then showed you our photo booth!
After toasts, we fed each other pie.
Pie bar, anyone?
