If you haven't seen already, we were honored to have Love & Lavender feature Alison & David's wedding last week. We had so much fun working with these two! We connected instantly at our first meeting over coffee at Philz. When they asked if we could plan their wedding in three months – we said, “absolutely!”
Through working with Alison and David, we also became acquainted with someone very important in their lives: their adorable cat Buddy. They wanted him to be represented at their wedding, and had the great idea for customized beer bottles as wedding favors, dubbed “Great Budworth’s Celebration Ale”. To do this they used Grogtag, who makes it easy to either custom-design or use one of their templates. The label design started with this hilarious picture of Buddy in his best outfit:
We designed labels for their beer favors using their wedding’s color palette (peach, olive and antique gold). We also added the Union Jack to give a nod to David’s heritage.
We eventually decided to go with darker labels to stay true to the Newcastle ale:
Guests had so much fun bringing their very special beer home, and I'm happy to say that Buddy is still a part of our lives :) David and Alison sent us this photo just last week:
We love our jobs because we get to make so many new friends, both human and animal!
