THE DETAILS TELL YOUR STORY.
Custom invitation design means starting from scratch, with your story and your wedding as the inspiration to create something beautiful.
You have a unique and special love story, and you’re planning a unique and special wedding. Your stationery is the best place to tell that unique and special story.
I love romantic colors, I love mixing textures, and I love dramatic calligraphy (of course). I REALLY love designing an invitation suite that will be a surprisingly fun experience for your loved ones to get in the mail - almost like a gift! But more than anything else, I love finding creative ways to include the details that are so special to your relationship and your wedding.
Your invitation suite is the only thing that your loved ones will see before the wedding. The suite they receive sets the tone for the day and prepares them to celebrate with you. Plus, it’s one of the only items that you’ll be able to save after the wedding.
Make it something special - something worth saving.
Let me show you what I really mean when I say custom design.
FEATURED WEDDING NO. 1
Sarah & Travis
Sarah and Travis celebrated their gorgeous, joyful wedding on a spring day in Savannah, Georgia. Throughout their stationery, we incorporated details from their lives, their love story, and their wedding day plans. Even each vintage postage stamp was hand-picked to help tell their story.
To celebrate Sarah and Travis's favorite city, I designed a custom map of Savannah, branded with their delicate wedding crest. I printed the map on fabric and wrapped the fabric around their suite of textured cards before filling the brightly-colored envelopes. From the day they received their invitation in the mail, S+T's guests were anxious to travel to Savannah and explore the beautiful city.
Sarah and Travis's guests repeatedly told them how much they enjoyed receiving this unique invitation suite. In fact, some guests even wore their fabric map as a pocket square to the wedding celebrations!

FEATURED WEDDING NO. 2
Melissa & Hartley
Here’s a few more snapshots from another beautiful wedding to give you a peek at the way a couple’s wedding invitations can be customized to a very different style, inspired by their story and their celebration.
Melissa and Hartley celebrated their big day in December. They were married in a traditional ceremony in a Catholic church, and then joined their guests for a celebration at an enchanting barn that was originally built in 1927.
You can see how I incorporated details from M+H's wedding and story in their stationery, like the delicate greenery design from Melissa’s dress and the festive December decor adorning the old barn. Hartley's military background and the couple's church ceremony inspired us to keep the design quite classic and traditional, and Melissa loved how the handmade paper with deckled edges made the whole suite even more timeless.
This simple-yet-thoughtful invitation set the stage perfectly for their equally understated and meaningful celebration, and the classic ceremony programs coordinated perfectly!
