As much as I adore a beautiful invitation, my favorites are always the ones that tell the couple's story. This gem, stunningly photographed in a bed of coral peonies, features a sweet belly band that represents the couple's San Francisco home and Pennsylvania wedding in the bride's hometown; who could resist such a charming invitation?

  2. We made sure that our invitations told a story. They didn't tell the whole story though...just a few hints. Then they all found out the ending at the wedding.

    …they were beautiful. *Sigh

    Love the one you have displayed!
