Daniel and my cousin Jim (who is more like my brother) have been best friends their entire lives, and so I knew him all my growing up years even though we went to school on opposite sides of the county. He’s one of those people that everyone in our town knows and loves—a captain in the U.S. Air Force with an important job in Washington D.C., he’s definitely a hometown hero around here. We all fell in love with Katie when he brought her down south to meet us all and I was tickled to death when he proposed, she accepted, and they asked if we could do custom invitations to incorporate a little bit of home into their wedding day. They were getting married in San Antonio and Katie gave me a few words to go by for the creative direction that were so easy and fun to run with: colorful, Texas, fiesta, playful, fun! Today their tear jerkingly, gorgeously sentimental wedding is featured on Snippet & Ink and I’m so proud that they’re much more than clients, but friends. We love you, Blackledges!
