About Nicole & Emery Ann Design

Chicago Invitation Designer Nicole of Emery Ann Design

It began as a passion for excellence with the invitations for my own wedding in 2012 and shortly thereafter grew into a small stationery service for family, friends and teachers. After giving birth to my daughter, a more flexible schedule was needed and this passion turned into a business.

Now, Emery Ann Design allows me to help couples tell their love stories by creating beautiful classic wedding invitations featuring your personality.  I help keep grandma happy and your stress down with helping you with your wording and etiquette including how to address the your guest envelopes.  These beautiful pieces are sent to your loved ones and friends inviting them to one of the most special days of your life.

So, who’s Emery Ann?  Well, it’s more of a feeling. Emery and Ann are a nod to my grandparents, who’ve always made people feel warm and welcomed. As hosts for events, holidays and just day to day, they have spent their whole lives making friends, family and everyone feel special and positive.

Emery Ann Design hopes to bring that same feeling of love to you and your guests.

Let’s get in touch!  I’m available for in-person consultations for Custom Wedding Invitations in the Chicago area and provide telephone and FaceTime consultations for clients nationwide in the USA.

Nicole at Emery Ann Design is incredible- and even that is an understatement! If you are looking for any stationary of any kind for your wedding, Nicole will far exceed your expectations. From the moment we met, she laid out all the options and really got to know us and created the perfect letter pressed wedding invitations. We loved them so much we decided to have Nicole create all of our day of stationary- from ceremony programs to escort boards, to welcome signs, menu place cards, fun signs for the reception, sparkler tags and thank you cards. She incorporated the custom-made monogram she created for us on all the pieces. Everyone was so impressed by all her work. Not only does she create beautiful work, she is the best to work with! From answering a million questions (extremely fast), to creating extra menu cards for us the day before the wedding, and every step in between. Nicole rocks!!

Beautiful work!! I got so many compliments on my invite. They were better than I could have imagined!

I was thrilled with the invitations that Emery Ann Design created for my daughter’s graduation celebration. They are beautiful and the compliments keep pouring in along with the RSVPs from my guests! They really went above and beyond to make sure the design was exactly what my daughter and I wanted and they were done quickly (because I was behind schedule). Thanks, Emery Ann!

I was dreading the wedding invitation designing part of planning, but Nicole made it SO easy. Not only did she help us stay on budget, she put a lot of effort into our design to still make it look like a million bucks. I’m overjoyed with how the invitation package turned out, and I can’t wait to send them to my guests. Thank you, Nicole, for all your help, guidance, and just being a pleasure to collaborate with! I highly recommend her to design your dream invitation package!!
