Trent White vs. Holly Davenport


When I proposed marriage to my now-wife Holly, I didn’t think twice about having “Save the Date” cards made or the maps, invitations or programs. I just assumed that since design is my profession, I’d make them… Actually, that’s a lie. I never thought about any of that until we realized we needed to send something out.

The Save the Date cards were very simple.  Holly and I were in Europe after speaking at a conference in Paris, and decided to travel down to the south of France for a little vacation since we were already overseas. I proposed in the Pope’s Garden in Avignon. After she accepted, she took a picture of the bench we were sitting on and, voilà! Save the Date: check.

We decided on an outdoor wedding a little over a year from the date I proposed which put the ceremony in July. We knew July to be pretty dry in MO. but unbearably hot. This drove our decision to make the programs functional.  In an outdoor Missouri wedding in July, you’ll need a fan. I created a template for a die, sent off to have it made, and an awesome friend from Chicago took care of our printing needs. Thanks again Dave!
