|Note the hearts... in Germany and San Diego|
Katie came to the San Diego area from Germany as an exchange student for her junior year of high school and that is where they met and dated for a few months. The friends she made that year stayed close to her heart and as the years went by she came back to visit quite a few times. It was during one of those trips that she and Grant reconnected, began dating in that long-distance fashion (Skype!), and truly fell in love.
But back to the invitations! A special way to keep the beachy blues in play was to use a watercolor of a beach photo for the map pocket-liner as well as the backside of the invitation extra pieces (i.e. rsvp card, welcome party card).
