Save the Date Postcard Unique Save the Dates before & after design The Story    "The colored photo in the canoe was taken at the lake in our hometown. There are two lakes that surround our small town in South Dakota where we grew up. My husband's parents actually live on the lake so we spent many days on the water. The lighting and scenery of that photo reminds me of the absolute beauty of nature and the memories we have on the water." Our Vow Save the Date Postcard Our Vow Unique Save the Dates before & after design The Photo    "The black and white photo was taken in my father's 1963 red Ford Falcon Futura convertible. I grew up driving this car around town every summer as much as I could. My husband and I actually grew up together so I loved this candid photo that was taken in a vehicle with so much history, yet it represents moving forward into the future." Made for Each Other Save the Date Magnet Made For Each Other Unique Save the Dates before & after design The Technique    "We messed around with a few (templates) and compared. What made our decision was when the one we really liked had a spot for a main picture & then three slots on the side for 3 pictures - we loved the theme but we only wanted to use two pictures really. So I decided to take the same picture and place it in all 3 spots on the side of our main photo and place them just right so they would line up and look as if it’s just one picture. It is one picture just placed three different times, as soon as I got that figured out, we knew it was the one."
