Custom Cookies: Patty & Mike’s Wedding

When Patty sent me the graphics for her custom cookie wedding order, I thought they were the absolute cutest.  I was also curious to find out the inspiration for the cartoon characters on the wedding cookie favors and Patty graciously shared her story with me.

As it turns out Mike and Patty lived on opposite sides of the country when they met.  Rather than talk on the phone at work (and share their personal conversations with work staff), ichat became a regular form of communication and these characters were their ichat icons.   Three years later they are getting married and a friend reminded them about their ichat characters at a dinner party – it was the perfect solution for custom cookie favors.
