Weddings are one of those times in life where people put their heart and soul into creating a day filled with personal touches and symbols for the values they hold together.
The couple crafted a gift bag for their guests that was perfectly suited for their day. They've generously shared photos and stories with us, and we are thrilled to share them with you.
David and Kate were married at Blair Academy, a boarding school in New Jersey, founded in 1848. It's a special place because David is an alum, and his father has taught there for more than 30 years. As such, the family has long connections to the campus, even down to memories of eating in the cafeteria together.
The school opened its campus on this special occasion and allowed the wedding party to use all facilities, including the dormitories for all wedding guests. Enter Bogobrush. :)
Kate and David are creative professionals, and so are most of their wedding guests. As designers, the couple wanted their guests' gifts to fit the dorm room theme, while coming from companies who share their passion for sustainable design. So inside hand-sewn toiletry bags with vintage film stills ironed-on the front, the bride & groom gave their friends the gift of clean teeth and fresh breath, sustain-ably.
From the sounds of the feedback, their guests loved it!
"It's just like them to pull off some personal-crafty thing like this"
"Typical Kate-finding sustain-ably sourced Dorm-kit items"
And, what a bride! Bogobrushin' and capturing it on camera. <3
KATE is an industrial designer with a focus on sustainable product engineering, and a graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art. DAVID is a published illustrator and a creative director at Havas, NYC. Kate and David live in Brooklyn.
Your wedding looks beautiful, David and Kate. A million congratulations to you.
Thanks for including us!
