Emily & Dan’s save the date, invitation, Baltimore wedding map and (library inspired) reply card came with a unique set of bookish, desert floral challenges (Arizona meets Maryland) for the announcement and introduction of their wedding at Baltimore’s prestigious Peabody Library.

Printed on the inside are the name of Rowan's parents, his date of birth and a poem to celebrate his arrival. I love you Kim and I love you Rowan, I'm so happy you're here x
