timeless stationery documenting the most important day of your life

Wedding Invitations

Creating meaningful wedding stationery that will stand the test of time

After designing wedding invitations for more than 100 couples over the past few years, I’ve really come to value wedding invitation suites that are not only thoughtfully designed and beautiful, but are classic, timeless, and full of each couple’s personality.

The feeling you receive when working with me is most important.  I want you to feel my love, care and attention when I am guiding you through the ins and outs of wording and etiquette, when sketching and designing invitations that show off your personality, and when I am meticulously assembling your wedding invitation suite with wax seals, silk ribbons, and all the works.

When your guest receives a beautiful envelope addressed to them,  it’s like a special gift.  They excitedly open the envelope to explore luxurious papers, hand-stamped wax seals, and fine silk ribbons.  Together we create and share the anticipation and excitement your guests feel knowing they are invited to your wedding day —  the event of the season!

Working with me, you will receive a stress-free experience that starts with mood boards and sketches and ends with the most beautiful pieces to mail to your wedding guests and to document the most important day of you life.

Not only will you receive meaningful wedding invitations, but you will receive more time to enjoy your engagement together because you have a professional wedding stationer handling every detail for you.

Custom Invitations: Design begins 6-7 months before your wedding date with couples securing their date 6-12 months before their wedding.

Rush orders may be available based on my current design schedule.

Most common print methods are Foil Stamping, Flat/Digital Printing, Digital White Ink, and Letterpress. 

I also offer themography, engraving, embossing, and debossing. 

No matter the print method, I use the best printers that specialize in the specific print method.

Yes!  Let me take care of everything from full assembly, stuffing and sealing envelopes, stamping, and hand delivery to the post office on your mailing day, so you can enjoy your engagement and focus on other wedding planning tasks.

As soon as possible! The best time to order your day-of paper goods is while we’re discussing your wedding invitations. All you have to do is secure your spot — then we can chat about your details down the road.   It is best to secure your spot on my design calendar in advance!

No worries!  I have been doing my best to make this as stress-free as possible for my couples and is a different answer for each couple.  I do not charge a postponement fee, I recommend we continue the design process and stop just before print approval, I also add a complimentary round of revisions for changing time, date, and location details due to postponing.  Some things I have done with clients is create a complimentary digital postponement announcement to be emailed and shared on social media, created postponements that compliment your wedding invitations to be mailed to guests, extended timeline to give more time to make decisions based on local guidelines.
