Thats's right - Two of my very good friends were married in Puerto Rico over the New Year and we had the extreme pleasure of joining them! But before we get to the trip photos, and wedding deets - let's do the invitations.
Lauren is an interior designer herself, so she knew exactly what she wanted for her invitations: a classy yet artistic invitation with art deco elements. Her colors were coral, emerald and gold. Since she was having somewhat of an untraditional wedding, we decided that the layout should be untraditional as well (tri-fold). I designed the art deco emblem for the front using their initials and carried the background pattern design throughout the design.
Now on to the good stuff! Puerto Rico is pretty damn cool. People kept saying I was still in the United States, but I didn't believe them - it was too tropical and warm for all that!

Being the adventurous type that we are, Jonathan and I decided to go on a few mini-adventures once we arrived. We drove to the exact opposite corner of the island (which only took about 2 hours) to Guanica Dry Forest Reserve. Since it was New Year's day, the park was closed, but we hopped the little gate and hiked on up the Fuerte Trail to Fort Caprón. There wasn't any info on the fort once we go there, so I'm not sure of it's history - but it offered some great views of the bay below.

ugh... too many people!

The happy couple! Love her art deco inspired dress - gorgeous!
Congratulations Lauren and David! We had a blast at your wedding and I wish you many happy years to come!
