MRP MOVES OUT OF THE HOMESCHOOL ROOM AND INTO THE CREAMERY BUILDING!
Nick looked at me and said, “Either the business goes, or the kids go, and neither of them can go!” He was joking, of course, but there’s something to be said about running a business out of the homeschool room of your 2-bedroom fixer upper. He began researching office spaces near to us, and we came across the Creamery Building, which is only a minute from our house!
It seems like a whirlwind, but we jumped at the offer and moved in! And we quickly discovered that interior designing is something worth paying someone else to do, especially when you’re completely inexperienced like we are. (We’re guilty of being hodge-podge, clearance-rack designers, haha!)
I credit everything 100% to Nick. He researched and researched and researched, and stitched it all together. I found an ad on Instagram for Scandinavian Minimalist furniture, and Nick made it all come true.
It’s an understatement to say how incredibly wonderful it is to have a separate work space. Our family-work dynamic is healthier, and we feel more excited to wake up early and head on over to work! And even more good news, we’re in the same building as one of our very-favorite wedding venues, the Creamery 201!
Goodbye to noisy coffee shops, and hello to a quiet, bright space.
Now, when we have clients come in, we can treat them to a coffee (or tea, or a fancy bubbly drink) on us, and gab about weddings and details for as long as we like, without the worry of a closing time. That was a huge frustration for me before–finding a coffee shop that was open later than 4:30pm during the week.
So, now that you’ve had a little tour of our new space, Nick and I are THRILLED to officially announce our heirloom wedding books!
We want our couples to relive their wedding day in the most stunning, magical way. We were unsure if that was happening–we didn’t want their photos to be tucked away on the computer. We didn’t want our couples to face the daunting task of creating their own albums and trying to retell their story on their own. We wanted to control the quality–because not all wedding books are created equal.
Nick put on his research cap, and dug deep to find the best of the best for wedding book studios. The one that had the best quality, the one that had the most options, the one that the best photographers in the world are using. We found GraphiStudio, and created our first sample album from the Baker wedding in 2018.
When this album arrived, in its gorgeous box, I was STUNNED. We invested in the one with all the bells & whistles–the wood box to keep it in, the amazing lay-flat rigid paper, real leather, (and more!), and again, we were stunned. I had to wash my hands before I touched it. Nick, the story teller in this relationship, meticulously chose each image that told the story of the Baker’s perfect wedding, from first to last.
We quickly ordered two more samples, one from the Wolf engagement session, in what I believe is the SOFTEST, prettiest leather they offer! (It’s my personal favorite!)
We ordered this one with an almost-white colored wood box, and a slightly thinner paper (so couples can see the difference when they touch them).
The books and boxes are hand-made in Italy, my friends! ITALY! With a lifetime warranty on the binding, you know that these are absolutely, top of the line luxury books. Preserve your memories for a lifetime, and make reliving them as magical as possible for you, your loved ones, and your future generations.
I always say, just think about what a beautiful gift this is, to give you and your family a window back in to your day and showcase all the love & work that went into it. You planned & worked so hard, your family & friends worked so hard, your florist, your coordinator, your photographers, and more! Your wedding day was an investment and a love-labor for so many. Don’t hide it away. Showcase it. Make your memories last forever.
And we are so excited to offer these to past couples, too! We include a gorgeous 13×9 album in our Wedding Collections for all new clients, because we believe that every wedding deserves to be preserved in a precious, priceless book.
Want to experience (and touch!) the story-telling magic? Drop a line and come visit me at the office! I can’t wait to see you!
