The new year is here, so we wanted to take some time to let everyone know how thankful we are for your business, support, and loyalty. We've had a wonderful year working with amazing couples, planners, and businesses around the world. Artistically, we have pushed the boundaries further than we ever have before, and we couldn't have done it without our amazing clients and vendors. We are consistently amazed by the wonderful people we get to work with, and still get just as excited creating a new wedding map or custom invitation like we did almost a decade ago. Thank you.
CW Designs saw tremendous growth in 2016, including a new move to Downtown McKinney where we have enjoyed becoming more connected to our local community. We've gotten the opportunity to work with many local businesses and we look forward to expanding upon those relationships. Our partners at the 305 Event Gallery (Five Star Events, Lot 207, Azure Photography) have been so great to work with and we look forward to continued success. If you are ever in the McKinney area stop in and see us at 305 W. Louisiana, even if it's just for a Friday afternoon cocktail :).
We would also like to take a moment to address our core clients; the couples starting their new life together as one. Just some advice. Remember to say I love you, let little things slide, address big issues, use WE, and support each other. We hope that your first Holiday's as a married couple are filled with fun and loving memories.
We can't wait to share an awesome 2017 with all those we've worked with in the past and can't wait for the relationships built in the future.
We wish everyone a peaceful and love filled Holiday Season and Happy New Year.
All the best,
Jeremy, Carol, Olivia, Kienan, and Lulu
If you are in the DFW metroplex this weekend (December 10, 2016) make sure to stop by and check out CW Designs at the Tupps Brewery Holiday Art Bazaar in McKinney. We'll be enjoying a few beers, selling a few items, and visiting with the community. We'reespecially excited about the release of their new beer Full Grown Man! We helped design the can along with the very talented Jon Fettig, our brother-in-law. Come check us out along with a bunch of other artisans to do some Christmas shopping while enjoying a few beers. Cheers!
Tupps is located at the Old Cotton Mill at 721 Anderson St, McKinney, TX.
Over a year a go we started working with a wonderful bride, Natalie, on her upcoming wedding in Los Angeles. She and her fiancé have classic taste, but wanted something a little more unique. We went to work on a design that incorporated the aspects of a traditional wedding invitation suite with a modern twist. The classic script combined with a modern monogram brought together the old and new and the muted colors along with a bold blue only pulled the entire ensemble together. Natalie loved the look so much that she decided to carry the look throughout her entire wedding. From the wedding map, seating chart, menus, and place cards, to party favors and totes, the look was flawless. It was almost as flawless as the couple themselves! This really highlights how a wedding can truly be unique without sacrificing your style. It was a blast designing this set and working with such a sweet couple. Congratulations, Ben and Natalie! Remember, beauty is in the details. LOVE. DESIGN. PAPER.
This past week my good friends at Lot 207 and In Season Catering hosted an amazing rehearsal dinner for some really great people, Jillian and Brady Luby. We began working with Brady's mother, Donna, months ago creating custom invitations, menus, seating charts, table numbers... you name it. We even used a design Carol created on chocolate made by Yelibelly Chocolates! It was such a blast working with Donna, and we hope to work with her again very soon. Congratulations Jillian and Brady! Oh, and of course, Carol designed a map for their wedding! Check out some of the photo's before the party started below.
Over the years, we have had the privilege of working with some amazing couples, and more often than not, they take time out of their hectic lives to send me amazing photo's of their wedding day. These photo's are of a wedding map CW Designs created as a focal piece for a Halloween wedding this past fall. The colors we carefully selected to bring a vintage chic look while staying true to a Fall wedding. Awesome photo's, thanks Josh and Jill! Congratulations and here's to a life full of love and health together!
