The Closing of a Chapter

The Closing of a Chapter

I have a thing for dates and seasons that harmoniously play into each other every year.  There are those that remind you about wonderful days, those that remind you of the days that aren't so great, but more than anything else, there are the dates that you feel will always be a turning point in your life. This is going to be a long post, but I think that every single thing is necessary to share. So, here we go.

Save the Date Designs | A Peek into the Olivia Suite

Save the Date Designs | A Peek into the Olivia Suite


Last week, we happily launched the 2018 Curated Collection and each one was designed to have it's own custom qualities brought in from the very beginning. 

One of the designs included in the Curated Collection is this suite shown, which we lovingly named The Olivia Suite. It comes with four different Save the Designs to choose from, and we think this one will become a favorite for a lot of brides!

Five Things to Remember when Budgeting for Wedding Invitations

Five Things to Remember when Budgeting for Wedding Invitations


When it comes to planning for your paper design, what do you need to think about, and what matters or are your needs for your wedding?  I haven’t really seen that many posts for brides to really, truly help you to determine how to create a budget for your wedding without telling you what your number should be. This is a pretty lengthy post, but I also knew that it would be good to include all in one so that you had something to bookmark and come back to.

A New Journey

A New Journey


Have you ever had that moment where you don’t think you have the strength, and so you pray to God for help, and over and over again He fills your heart with courage to just say YES? From things that other people say to you in conversation, verses you happen to read, from that song that *just* so happens to be on the radio right at that moment, that things are happening way too many times for them just to be a coincidence any longer?

In the Press: Swiss Family Robinson Styled Shoot

In the Press:  Swiss Family Robinson Styled Shoot



Hello, inspiration!  This styled shoot was featured recently on Every Last Detail and I am so excited to share the images of these beauties with you here as well .... the creativity by all involved is absolutely awe-inspiring, and there were so many beautiful details weaved into every piece.  I tried hard to choose a favorite, but between the protea flowers or the stunning gown, the carefully hand-deckled edging included on the invitation or the delicate details incorporated into the cake design, I love every single detail.

Wedding Tips: A Timeline for Custom Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations

Wedding Tips:  A Timeline for Custom Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations


I love designing bespoke wedding collections, and want to be as helpful as possible when it comes to planning the paper side of the details for your wedding day. A lot of times, brides contact me when it is only a few weeks prior to their wedding day, and we don’t have enough time to design the collection they had in mind.  I am hoping this post today is helpful in helping you to realize that sooner rather than later is a good thing when it comes to paper!

Bespoke Invitation Design:  Ashley and Brenton's Vibrant Floral and Letterpress Wedding Collection

Every now and then, I work with a couple where the bride knows exactly what she wants from the beginning.  For Ashley and Brent, Ashley had a particular hue of purple, or fuchsia, that she wanted incorporated into her wedding paper design from the beginning.  Pairing that particular color with bright florals and letterpress details for the paper with incredibly soft and romantic touches incorporated into the wedding day design, when everything was complete, it is by far one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen.

A Note of Grace: A Little Less Hustle, a Lot More Grace.

A Note of Grace:  A Little Less Hustle, a Lot More Grace.



Instead of saying yes to doing more, expecting more of yourself, filling up every single second of spare time you have with other things, what can you say no to, that you can choose to fill your cup up with something else??  Something that will fill your heart with more joy, that perhaps has nothing to do with work?
