We’re not typically people at a loss for words (evidence: this blog), but we started at a blinking cursor on a white screen longer than normal while preparing this post. Why? It’s simple, really. Summarizing how two people you didn’t know less than one year ago became two you couldn’t imagining living without in a few hundred words is, well, no simpler than the challenge we gave ourselves, either. You see, this spring, we emailed Jen, one of the most talented, sought after, and hottest (figuratively, literally, metaphorically, and in every other way) brand specialists in America. We told her we wanted something special — maybe that, in certain respects, had never been done before — a career-defining brand that paid homage to where we’d been, put up a bright, bold (and blush) flag post marking where we are now, and, all at the same time, lay a foundation and cast a vision for the future. For our future.
Jen gave us more than a new brand.
She opened a door we couldn’t have opened ourselves.
And that’s what happened here.
Because Jen gave us more than a new brand — and a pin-up-calendar-worthy piece of man candy to photograph in Charleston, who Jordan did Shakira hips for behind the camera to get him to smile because he doesn’t love taking pictures — she opened a door we couldn’t have opened ourselves: the one that leads to the next chapter in our story. And, Jen, for that, we’ll be forever grateful. For the homemade street tacos and handmade margaritas, too. Those are a close second. And that’s not a knock on your designing. You’re just that good in the kitchen. And, to leave it on a serious note (don’t worry, we won’t stay on that note for long) we hope you and Aaron love your anniversary session in historic Charleston as much as we do, and feel like it tells a little part of your story the way you’ve helped us tell part of ours. We love you both. #nespresso. #turksandcaicos. That is all. Note quite. #allthethings. Now that’s all.
