Kellie and Blake met online more than six years ago. This was a time before dating apps, so they told people they first met in a Boston bar. Technically, this is true! Their first date was in Davis Square in Somerville, where they met for a drink at the Foundry. Things were going so well there that they moved over to Painted Burro for lots of margaritas. To this day, Kellie says that the Painted Burro is their favorite restaurant, and they return there frequently. Both the Mexican food and their relationship has withstood this test of time!

But the first step to sharing your special day with your loved ones always begins the same way: wedding invitations.
