Uwayemen & Reagan’s IJORERE

I'm so excited to share Uwa & Reagan's destination wedding, which took place in the tropics of Puerto Rico! Uwayemen, or Precious, as I liked to call her, contacted me directly regarding her invitations. She wanted an intricate laser cut look without the intricate laser cut price tag. I went to work right away to creatively cut corners for her dream wedding suites.

I did a quick search on etsy and discovered another stationery vendor that sells pre-made lasercut foil dollies…it was the prefect match for what my IjoBride desired. I love it when we invitationers come together to collaborate and not compete, anyway back to my story: once I showed Precious images of the dollies, she absolutely feel in-love. I wasn't surprised when her beau came back again to order more suites, but I must say I was in total awe when I saw photos of her wedding dinner reception, which showcased gold place mats in lieu of chargers. Clearly this must have been inspired from the look of our gold dollies on The Invitation, we designed for Precious. 

A special shout-out to Dure Events on their keen sense in details & successfully incorporating our wedding invitation designs created for Precious & Reagan's IJORERE. 

Without further ado, feast your eyes on gorgeousness!

Tres Joli Tuesdays! ~ Ade & Andrew’s IJORERE.

Starting on the month of LOVE, February 2013, we will begin a series of daily columns on IJORERE Memoirs! but we just couldn’t WAIT to share this with you, so here is one episode of what we’ve got in store for you on our ‘Very Lovely Tuesdays’…Tres Joli Tuesdays!

Ade & Andrew’s IJORERE
Some of you might not know that IJORERE provides world-wide services. Majority of our clients are out-of-state or out-of-the country. In fact most of our out-of-country clients come from London, England, so a HUGE shout out goes to our ENGLAND couples!

Ade had an endearment for her grandmother. She connected with us some time ago seeking custom suites that reminded her of her grandmother’s wrapper (a casual Ankara bottom piece commonly worn in many parts of Africa). It was obvious that she wanted something vintage and as soon as Ade sent a photo of a piece of her grandma’s “aso oke”, (traditional Yoruba fabric) I almost immediately visualized what I would have my team create for her.

We get clients with the same popular colors and alas! have no choose in the matter but to work with what we’ve got. However, when Ade told us her colors were olive, teal, cranberry pink and yellow gold, I was immensely rattled up with excitement. FINALLY, a uniquely different color palette!

Ade recently shared her IJORERE with us and here are our favorites visuals!
