Let the evolution of our Save the Dates begin! It all started with a little inspiration.

The moment I saw this photo I thought it would be perfection for our wedding. The couple took the picture in front of their wedding location (Outer Banks I think). It is carefree and fun. I think it gives off a definite destination wedding feel. I toyed around with some other ideas too.

I thought this was cute and simple. I liked that it was a postcard and I was determined to have a postcard for our STD (teehee) as well. First and foremost postcard postage is cheaper and I am nothing if not frugal. Also everyone says that the STD is the guests first glimpse at the wedding and I think a postcard sets the right first glimpse of our semi-destination wedding.
Now it is just time to put the plan in motion. We headed up to Cape May exactly one year before our wedding (so adorable, I know!). The weather was fabulous and we set off to take pictures for the front our of our STD postcard. We were not without help though and enlisted the Sammie sisters as camera women and Mama CS as shoot director.
Some were bad:
Some were good but not the right 'feel':
