Minted Save-the-Dates | Let your personalities shine.

Sponsored with love by Minted

Wedding invitations and save-the-dates are one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. Receiving one in the mail and opening it for the first time always puts a smile on my face — they’re a true symbol of love and a reminder of that love and commitment which will be shared on your wedding day, through the entire process.

Your save-the-date will hang on the refrigerators of your guests for months on end and will be your first opportunity to set the tone for your wedding day.

So you know what I think? Your wedding-save-the dates should let your personalities truly shine through the colors, the fonts, the styles and the photos. Every single detail is special and every single detail should be “totally you.”

Choose a style that sets the tone for your wedding day — modern, classic, formal, minimalist, rustic, botanical, vintage, boho, bold, offbeat or nautical
Choose colors you love
— bold, tranquil or romantic (or even add some gorgeous gold, silver or rose gold foil)
Choose fonts that speak to you — dainty or light or bold or incredibly unique
Choose a photo that’s totally you — a photo that speaks love and truth and depicts who you are as a couple.

A Downtown Tennessee Engagement Session

“We met Whitney and Ryan downtown one Sunday morning right at sunrise on an unusually cold spring day. We walked the empty streets, taking in the cold morning air, then headed to our second location by the water. These two were troopers throughout the whole cold morning! We can't wait for their intimate August wedding!” Scroll on down to take a peek at this darling Downtown Tennessee engagement session.

Robyn and Riaan tried the knot at the beautiful Lace on Timber in Pretoria and his was one truly elegant union of two beautiful individuals. The entire occasion was perfectly tied together from the stunning white and silver wedding palette, the acrylic wedding signs, the love from both families, and of course, the many laughs and tears shared.
