WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, just announced that Color Bar Creative has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards™!

In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. This year’s recipients represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community, which includes over 100,000 wedding vendors from across the US. That means Color Bar Creative is one of the very best Invitation Vendors.

Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the company, the Bride’s Choice Awards are determined exclusively by recent newlyweds through surveys and reviews.

Rob Little - My favorite Comedian

Recently, my 9-5 job sent me to Chicago for a convention. While there I was lucky enough to get some free time in the evening to check out a local comedy club Zanies and met an awesome comedian, Rob Little. He was hilarious!! Lucky for me we are now friends! He was in need of some wallpaper graphics for desktops, iphones, BlackBerry, etc. So I offered to help. Not having any clue what he was looking for, here's what I came up with. 

He's planning a Michigan appearance at Mark Ridley's in March. You should check out his show. You won't be sorry.

Lamb theme Baby Shower

Jennifer and I have had a long business relationship. I did work for her wedding in 2006 and I work with her on certain projects for Mancuso's Florist, the flower shop she runs with her husband.  Needless to say I was so excited to hear that she was expecting a baby girl! She is my 4th 2006 bride who contacted me for baby shower invites in 08. (Something is in the water ;) ) Jennifer wanted to compliment her hall with golds and pinks and feature a lamb theme. Instead of going for "baby look" shower invite, she wanted an elegant look, but on a budget. So we went with 2 metallic papers and highlighted them with fun, sophisticated graphics. The sweet and simple Thank You card just ties the whole theme together.
