Effie and Spero met through a mutual friend. One night, they went to NYC to see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree and ended up walking by a caricature artist. Effie had always wanted to get a caricature portrait done so they decided to sit down for the artist. As the artist turned the completed drawing and faced them, Spero got down on his knee. The picture was of Spero holding a ring and asking her to marry him!

Some bride Q&A…
What was your vision, style and concept for your wedding? How did you come up with the theme?
I love glitter and shiny things! So I knew I wanted silver and white; very traditional but modern.
What was the hardest and easiest part of invitation planning?
The hardest part was staying on budget! The easiest part was working with Couture ink and Robin! She worked so well with all my needs to make us a gorgeous invite!! (we did NOT tell her to say that!)
What was your guest’s reaction to the invite?
When the guests received the invites, right away I was getting calls and texts saying how beautiful they were!!
