On Trend: Real Gold Foil Invites


I think it's almost impossible to ignore the gold foil craze that's been sweeping your Pinterest and Instagram feeds. Walk into any store and you'll see hints of gold foil peeking out at you from the shelves. And the trend shows no sign of slowing: Just last week I saw some gold foil notebooks, pens and cards in the One Spot aisle in Target. If it's in Target, you know it's everywhere.

And with good reason - gold foil is gorgeous, amiright? It looks luxe and refined and you just want to touch it. And hold it. And tell it how pretty it is. Erm, just me? Well, I have been known to be a bit of a magpie.

So it's no wonder that my Sophie Suite has been the hit of the spring season this year. For couples who can't splurge on pricey foil, it's a fun alternative. However, there are some brides who must have the real deal. Vanessa is such a bride (after my own heart!) and I can't stop oogling her stunning invitations. Thank you, Vanessa, for letting me print these - I may have to frame them for my office, they're that pretty.

Check out that shine - AH, I'm in love! The bride paired them with sexy black envelopes and modern, personal labels. Vanessa and John will be getting married at the House of Blues this summer, which you know is sure to make for a great party. Congrats, you two - wishing you the happiest of wedding days and a lifetime of love.

New Year, New Collection


Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year. Last year was a rough one, personally, for my family - so I'm really looking forward to 2015. In that spirit, I decided to release a new collection. I know, it's been awhile since I put out anything new - and truth be told, I've been working on this collection for a long time. I thought I better get it out before the designs go out of style!

I'm happy to introduce the New Modern Collection. These designs reflect more of my own, personal taste, so I hope you enjoy them. They were also inspired by my wonderful brides. For example, Morgan's gorgeous black & white wedding inspired not one, but TWO designs - Morgan & Mia. And not one but TWO Emily's inspired the new Emily suite; I took the modern feel of the invitations I did for Emily's amazing Australian wedding and combined that with the lovely frame + monogram look of this Emily's gorgeous gold suite.

You can check out the entire collection in my esty shop, and the website has been updated to showcase the new line. And I didn't stop at invites - I added personal stationery, thank you cards, save the dates and custom address stamps as well. I'm also hoping the buying options on etsy make it easier and more straightforward for people to place orders.

Like it? Love it? Over it (ha!)? Let me know!

Happy New Year


Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful (and safe!) evening, and are enjoying this international day of reflection and relaxation. I'm excited for the new year - 2014 was a rough one for me and my family. But 2015 holds a lot of promise - I'm hoping to finish up school and become an official, certified interior designer, and right now I'm in the studio working on a new stationery collection I hope to debut soon. Cheers!

Wicked Bride on Well Wed


I'm at the beach on vacation with my family this week, but I wanted to pop in to mention this lovely little feature on Well Wed. I worked with the incredibly talented ladies at Whim Events on Sharon & Nathan's vintage auto inspired wedding last year. Remember those amazing table numbers we made? Yep, they were for this wedding. I also helped create the wedding program and oodles of little day-of details.

So check out the feature on Well Wed today!

The Studio Is Now Open


Hey everyone! I hope you've been having an amazing summer. I was fortunate to spend some time up north with my dear friend Tanya at her incredible lakehouse. I had a restful, relaxing couple of weeks - but now it's back to reality.

As I've mentioned, I'm going back to school in the fall to become an interior designer. My schedule will be pretty full, so originally I had planned on only accepting orders for August, then closing again come September 1. But - my inbox started to pile up with inquiries while I was away and all that time spent offline refueled my creativity a bit, so I've decided that I'll stay open as long as my studies aren't affected. 

All that to say: I'll be taking limited orders going forward. When I say limited, I mean LIMITED, as in I'll only be taking - at maximum - four orders a month. For comparison, I usually take 15-20 orders a month. 

I've also been doodling a new collection which I hope to debut next year after graduation. So stay tuned - I may run silent for a bit, but I'm still here! And if you miss me, I'm very active on instagram - especially with current interior design projects. 

Closed for July

Just a reminder that the studio will be closed in July for a much needed vacation. We will only accept a handful of orders in August as I return to school in September to finish a certification program. (I'm going to be an interior designer, y'all!). The studio will re-open around May 2015. Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe I'll run away to Bora Bora and design luxury hotel rooms.

Navy & Mint Scallop Invitations

So excited to open the latest Fall/Winter issue of The Knot magazine today and see my navy & mint scallop invitations featured in the style section! You guys remember these beauties from Kara and Kevin's wedding, right? They've been our number one selling invitation suite this year!
