2018 Wedding “Map” by El’s Cards

I can’t believe it’s already mid-February 2019! Time to reflect on our adventurous 2018! A huge thanks to El’s Cards for my annual “map”! It was quite a year that kicked off with an on-mountain wedding in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and ended with a 60th Birthday Bash at Castle Hill in Newport, RI. I am so grateful to all those who afforded us the opportunity to preserve the memory of their marriage and weekend festivities! Some complete with beach games and parachuting ring bearers!

Blanca the Sportsmobile was our partner for many 2018 events, and our new camper “Temerity” helped us along in Colorado, Narragansett and more!

I purchased Blanca the Sportsmobile through a serendipitous coast to coast “craigslist success story” transaction in 2009, and she’s been making the wedding rounds with us ever since. In fact, we love that the previous owner Luann follows our wedding adventures in Blanca “in-season” and our ski adventures with her in the winter.

Blanca is part of the team, she allows us to have reliable power, storage, food, and other essentials when on the job. Since a lot of our weddings are tented, in fields, at private homes, it’s nice to have a locker room on wheels. If the weather changes, we can reach for the Patagonia Nano Air, if it’s hotter than blazes and I need water (now!) and there is no appropriate place to sneak off to fill our water bottles, Blanca comes to the rescue! Keeping us comfortable, hydrated and fed, we love our wedding adventures in Blanca.

A big “Huckins Heart” to  El’s Cards for this year’s design. If you haven’t worked with El or browsed through her many product offerings (I’m obsessed with her Map Note Cards) take a peek at her work and of course wedding invitations, seating charts, and more! She just celebrated her 20th Anniversary in January and we were lucky enough to create her 20 Year celebration video – a must watch, here. El & Bob are adorable ❤️

A quick shout out to some of the awesome Friend-ors we had the chance to adventure with this year!  Let’s do it again in 2019 🙂

Above are only a few vendors from 2018, there are SO many more I know I worked with. I apologize in advance if I left you out of this post. Please know it was an honest error. I don’t always receive full lists of all wedding professionals contracted for each event.
