Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of

When you think of “wedding vendors”, please don't forget about the stationery designer!  While they may not physically be present on the day you get married, they still work just as hard as those other pros who will be.  In reality, your stationery designer is a very essential part of your wedding day.  Without the save the date and invitation, how would your guests know when and where to show up?!  It might seem silly but from consultation to conception to design to the proofing and printing process, stationery designers are true artists who care about your wedding day as much as you do.  Get a behind the scenes look at a designer in action as Kimberly of Purple Wagon Designs shares her process with us!

From Kimberly…

While wedding stationers like myself are certainly considered wedding “vendors,” we’re different than most of your vendors because we aren’t AT the big event!  All of our work happens BEFORE the wedding…but that doesn’t make it any less important.  In fact, without invitations, no one would show up to the wedding!

To give you a little insight about what goes into creating the perfect wedding stationery for someone’s big day, I’ll be giving you the play-by-play with my recent bride, Clare, and our journey to create her dream invitations!


Thursday, February 16, 7:36 p.m.

Five months prior to Clare’s wedding, she contacts me to inquire about invitations and we schedule an in-person consultation.

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Friday, February 17, 9 a.m.

I meet with Clare to discuss the details of her July 8th wedding: the overall feel of her wedding – traditional ceremony with a casual and relaxed cocktail reception; the locations – St. Bernard Church and The Mansions on Fifth; and the color scheme – pine and blush.

Also during our initial consultation, Clare picks out the shape and structure of her invitation.  She chooses a modern and functional pocket card in dark sage, a beautiful paper patterned with pink magnolias, and a lovely natural linen stock.  I’m IN LOVE with her choices!

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides


Tuesday, February 21, 1:34 p.m.

I put together the proposal and contract for Clare’s wedding stationery and email it to her for review.

Tuesday, February 28, 9:03 p.m.

Receive email from Clare stating that “We are go for launch!!!!” and asking what the next steps are. Reply, share her excitement, and ask her to mail out the signed contract and deposit so we can get started.

Monday, March 6, 12:15 p.m.

Find Clare’s contract and deposit mixed in amongst the junk mail.

4:53 p.m.

Order all the necessary paper and envelopes for Clare’s invitations, along with that of three other couples with summer weddings.


Thursday, March 9, 2:30 p.m.

Begin working on the initial design of Clare’s wedding invitations.  I also have a few deliveries for other clients today, so I don’t get as far as I’d like.

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Friday, March 10, 11 a.m.

Arrive back home following my daughter’s field trip to the Mt. Lebanon police station (so cool!) and put the finishing touches on Clare’s initial design.  Send it off and hope she likes it!

7:04 p.m.

Receive an email from Clare with feedback.  She LOVES it!  I do a little happy dance then quickly make her minor changes and send back to her.

Thursday, March 16, 1:25 p.m.

PAPER DELIVERY DAY!!  I haul two massive boxes into my office (paper is HEAVY!) and check that everything is accounted for.  I also let my kids make a huge mess playing in the packing peanuts 🙂

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Tuesday, March 23, 1:06 p.m.

Finish up the initial design of all the inserts for Clare’s invitations and send off for review.

Friday, April 7, 4:30 p.m.

After some back and forth with Clare making sure the wording, details, and designs are absolutely perfect on every part of her invitation, I send the artwork to print.


Monday, April 10, 12:52 p.m.

Receive a message that Clare’s invitations are ready to be picked up from the printer – in record time. It’s always so exciting to open the box and see the printed versions for the first time! They turned out exactly as I had hoped!

Tuesday – Saturday

Print the envelopes for Clare’s invitations and work on assembly.  Unlike the designing which is done during the day in my office, the assembly part of my work happens in my cozy basement in the evening while watching TV, so it’s a bit more relaxed.

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Sunday, April 16, 10:35 p.m.

Assembly on Clare’s invitations is complete and they’re packaged up and ready to go!

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Wednesday, April 19, 8:15 p.m.

Meet with Clare to deliver her invitations – she loves them!  Seeing the look on a bride’s face when she sees her invitations for the first time is an incredible feeling!

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides


Friday, May 12, 6:25 p.m.

Time to get started on Part Two of Clare’s wedding stationery!  In addition to the invitations, I will also be creating her ceremony programs and thank you notes.  I send her some examples of ceremony programs that she can use as a guide.

Thursday, May 25, 2:29 p.m.

I use the information Clare sent for her program and put together the initial designs for that and the thank you notes using the same theme and design that was used on her invitations.

Tuesday, June 6, 10:33 a.m.

After a little back-and-forth on the content of the program, both pieces are approved so I send them off to print!

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

Monday, June 19, 10:15 a.m.

Pick up Clare’s wedding day stationery from the printer and package it up.

Tuesday, June 20, 2 p.m.

Meet with Clare one last time to deliver her programs and thank you notes.  She is as happy with these items as she was with her invitations, and that makes the whole process totally worth it!

Purple Wagon Designs: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of from Burgh Brides

As you can see, a whole lot of behind-the-scenes time and effort goes into designing and creating the stationery for a wedding, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!  I consider it an honor to work with each of my couples on such an important element of their wedding!

While you can't be there in person, Kimberly, I know you're there in spirit, cheering on each and every client on her big day.  Thanks for peeling back the curtain for us!

If you have some catching up to do, check out a wedding day in the lives of Traveling Heart Productions, Sapphire and Lace Design and La Pomponnee Beauty Artisans.  I've still got a few more up my sleeve so keep your eyes peeled.

Introducing Community Flower Shop!

Community Flower Shop said it best with “Our ideal client is someone who wants something unique, creative, and anything but ordinary.”  Those words perfectly describe the work coming out of the latest Pittsburgh wedding florist to join the Burgh Brides Vendor Guide.  I've never seen the same arrangement or bouquet from them twice.  Patrick and his team are artistic designers who push the limits with out-of-the-box combinations of lines, texture, and color.  The results are floral magic.  Go meet them and see more of their work in the Vendor Guide!

Introducing Steven Dray Images & A Special Offer!

Swoon-worthy and a bit atypical, the work of Steven Dray Images is downright delicious.  It'll leave you with all the heart eyes.  Don't believe me?  Head on over to the Burgh Brides Vendor Guide to see more work from the latest photographer to join the pack.  He's got talent to spare, a super cool perspective, and he's just awesome to be around.  What more do you want in a wedding photographer?

Traveling Heart Productions: A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of

What is it like to be behind the camera on a wedding day?  In this case, I mean video camera, of course.  Today, Christina of Traveling Heart Productions is here to answer the question for us!  In the next edition of “A (Wedding) Day In The Life Of” series, Christina is sharing what a day (actually what a FEW days) in her life looks like.  A lot (and I mean a lot a lot) of work goes into making a video – there's prep time, schedule creation, location scouting, consulting with the other vendors, backing up all of the footage (usually to multiple places), and hours and hours of editing…not to mention actually being there on the wedding day to film it!  But why am I telling you all of this?  You can just read the first hand account from Christina instead!

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

Hey all!  My name is Christina, and I’m the owner and lead videographer at Traveling Heart Productions!  I’m so excited to provide you with a behind the scenes look at my life as a wedding videographer!  I love filming weddings, and I’m always so honored and excited to capture such an amazing and important day.  The wedding day preparations begin several days prior to the wedding, starting on Thursday.  Here’s the rundown of a wedding my second shooter, Brandon, and I filmed a few weekends ago:


Time to charge batteries and double check my equipment.  I have lots of batteries on me during the wedding day, and I need them all to be ready to go.  I also look over my equipment and make sure everything is here and in working order.  Tripod and monopod plates?  Check.  Shoulder mounts?  Check.  Just making sure I’m not missing anything important!

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

A typical setup for me – camera, shotgun mic, monopod


Time to format cards, organize my camera and equipment bags, and look over the timeline and questionnaire.  I prepare my second shooter’s bag as well, so she’s ready to film groom preparations right away.  Once our bags are packed and organized, I start preparing what I want to wear.  I’m usually either in black pants and a blouse/cardigan combo, or a maxi dress with a cardigan.  Layers are my friend, since it often goes from being 85 degrees outside to super chilly in the reception space.  For tomorrow’s wedding, I’ll be in a maxi dress that I love to wear.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

Saturday (Wedding Day!)

7:30 a.m.

Time to get up!  I get showered and dressed.  Time to move my two camera bags and my equipment bag into the car.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

I always keep my camera cards with me in a sturdy case. You just can’t be too careful with memory cards!

8:30 a.m.

Today’s wedding is in Johnstown, PA, so we have a little bit of a drive this morning.  Brandon and I will be driving together, as we do for most weddings, because she lives down the street from me.  I swing by her house and pick her up.  We stop at Panera to grab bagels and coffee for breakfast.  Panera = life.

9:30 a.m.

Still driving!  It’s a relaxing morning so far.

10:30 a.m.

We arrive in Johnstown.  We aren’t supposed to be on location until 11 a.m., so we spend a little time scouting where we need to be later in the day.  I run through the itinerary again, and give Brandon a copy.

10:50 a.m.

Arrived at the bride’s house, where she will be getting ready!  I grab my camera bag and my monopod from the trunk.  Brandon types in the address for the groom’s location (his parent’s house — just down the street) and she departs.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

Here Brandon is at a wedding we filmed in California. She’s in a tree because the photographer and I needed a model for that particular spot. She’s a good sport!

11 a.m.

Ring the doorbell, and I’m here!  Time to start filming preparations.  I introduce myself to everyone, quickly set up my camera, and I’m filming!  I say hello to Leeann, today’s photographer.  I'm really excited about that because I really enjoy working with her.  I mostly focus on details, hair/makeup, the bride getting into her dress, and the overall interactions between her family and friends.  It’s a super relaxed and happy atmosphere.

12 p.m.

Time for us to travel to the groom’s location, where the couple will be doing a first look.  Woohoo, I love first looks!  I grab a ride with Leeann, since my second shooter has my car and off we go!

12:15 p.m.

It’s pouring down rain when we arrive, but it quickly dissipates.  The couple has a super cute first look and now they have some free time to take portraits.  I hang around to grab some portrait footage and then Brandon and I are off to the church to set up!

1 p.m.

Arrive at St. Mary's Byzantine Church after inhaling a turkey sandwich in the car.  We bring in our cameras and equipment and set up our three cameras.  It’s so hot out, and I’m really glad the church is air conditioned.  Once the groom arrives, I put a mic on him to record clear audio from the vows.  I coordinate with Leeann to make sure she’s okay with my anticipated locations during the ceremony (so we’re not in each other’s shots) and now I’m ready to film!

1:30 p.m.

Ceremony begins!  This church is so gorgeous and there are lots of beautiful spots to capture the ceremony.  Brandon is split between two cameras on tripods — one in the balcony and one on the far right hand side of the church capturing the bride’s face.  I am on a monopod next to Leeann during the processional and then I’m off to the left hand side for vows and ring exchange, capturing the groom’s face.  During the rest of the ceremony, I quietly walk around and get other shots from interesting vantage points.  I’m back on the left hand side for the kiss!  Yay, they’re officially married!

2:30 p.m.

Bubble exit outside!  So cute!  The ceremony has ended, and it’s time for Brandon and I to break down our equipment and most of our cameras.  I remove the mic from the groom so he can take formal portraits in the church.  While formal portraits are happening (I don’t film the formal family portraits), I grab some interior shots of the church.  Once I have everything I need, I pack up my camera and let Brandon know where to go for the reception.  I send her there early so she can grab detail shots before the guests arrive.  She loads the car back up with our equipment (I really need to buy a bag with wheels for us). I ride with Leeann again — and we’re off to bridal party portraits!

3:30 p.m.

Bridal portraits are at the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown’s campus, and I’m excited to grab some pretty footage!  I always have fun filming couples interacting with their bridal party and with each other in a creative way.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

This is definitely one of my favorite parts of the day.

4:30 p.m.

We travel to the reception site (Johnstown Masonic Temple) and I grab some more footage of the couple before going into the reception hall to set up with Brandon.  She has already filmed lots of pretty detail/hall footage.  We coordinate where we will most likely be during the reception.  I introduce myself to the DJ and plug into his equipment so I can record the toasts for the video.

5:30 p.m.

The reception begins!  The order today is: Introductions, First Dance, Cake Cutting, Toasts, Blessing and then…

6:30 p.m.

Dinner!  Time to take a break and eat.  Feels good to sit down.

7:30 p.m.

We’re back at it, and ready to film the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances.  The floor opens up for dancing.  Party time!

8 p.m.

The sun is setting and it’s a perfect time for some outdoor evening portraits.  Leeann and I both head up to the roof (!!) where we can get some gorgeous shots in beautiful light.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

A still frame from their video — gotta love evening light on a roof!

10 p.m.

Ceremony ends.  We say goodbye and thank you to everyone!  Brandon and I break down our equipment and load everything back into the car.  Tonight is a bit of a longer drive home (two hours) since we’re in Johnstown.  I drop Brandon off at her house.

12 a.m.

I’m home!  Time to copy all of my footage onto my computer.  I have nine camera cards full of wedding gorgeousness, and I love scrolling through everything as I copy it over.  Once it’s all on my computer’s hard drive, I back it up onto an external hard drive, and then I also upload it to cloud storage.  I also will not wipe my camera cards until the wedding has been delivered to the couple.  I take a lot of precautions with my footage; media management is important!  While this is happening, I’m usually eating a snack, drinking water, and watching Parks and Rec, because it’s the best.  I’m a night owl, so being up late is no issue for me, and I sleep better knowing I have everything backed up.

Pittsburgh Wedding Vendors: Behind the Scenes with Traveling Heart Productions

I’m home and at my desk. It’s 1 a.m., but I have Parks and Rec to keep me company.

2 a.m.

Whew, I’m tired!  Time for bed (I’m asleep in 10 minutes).

That’s my entire day!  The next few days I spend working on the teaser trailer.  Once I deliver that to the couple, I begin editing their full highlight film.  I usually spend about 40 – 50 hours of editing on each wedding that I film.  Thanks for following along with me!

And what better way to see a wedding videographer in action than with a behind the scenes video?  Duh!  Enjoy this little snippet that Christina put together!  She's the absolute best for sharing her day with us and I hope she definitely took Tom Haverford's advice and treated herself after this!

If you missed the beginning half of this summer series, you can see what wedding days in the life of Sapphire and Lace Design and La Pomponnee Beauty Artisans look like.  Be sure to stay tuned as I share more in the coming weeks.
