​Ready AF? Contact me to set up a consultation! 
"Consultation" is a loose term nowadays, and I'm totally down with it. We can meet virtually via email, 
semi in-person via Face Time or Skype...or like they did in the olden days, on the phone or in person if you're 
in the New York area!

Keep scrolling for more information and some of my archive photos, but really, 
it's all about the Gram, baby...visit my Instagram page for all things current.

{Haute Couture}
I love working with you to create completely custom save-the-dates, invitations, and day-of paper goods (rehearsal invites, accommodation cards, menus, placemats, table numbers, escort cards, place tags, coasters, napkins, matches, favors, favor tags, and more)...starting from scratch to create that special reflection of your personal style & taste to create a cohesive look that is totally YOU.


​{Made To Measure}
All of my previous designs can be repurposed for you...every element can be changed to make it your own.  If you're struck with inspiration while looking around my website or Instagram page, we can start there!
{Ready to Wear}
It all started with a bottle of wine...doesn't it always?!  My wine bottle invitations, using real cork, are one of the first styles of invitations I created, and they're still one of my best-selling...If you see a design that you love as is and you're looking for something quick & easy, feel free to order off the rack!
♥These romantic invitations are a shimmery opal on the bottom, a luxe blush in the middle, and have gold keys adorning the top layer.
♥All of the invitation pieces were wrapped in burlap & lace and packaged in beautiful pearlescent boxes lined with a pink & gold floral print.
♥The initials of the couple and a heart locket hung from the twine that wrapped the package.
♥All of the pieces of the invitation came together for a cohesive look. A compass charm hung from their "Road Trippin' to the Altar" Rehearsal Dinner invitation & their new last name initial hung from their day-after Brunch invitation.
♥Coordinating pieces were made for this couple's entire wedding.  These programs were wrapped in cream lace & had double heart charms hanging from the twine bows.

♥Menus were designed to tuck into the napkin at each place setting.

♥Each table number was done with the print to match the inside of the invitation boxes and various gold keys were used to create the numbers on large ceramic tiles, which stood on gold easels.

♥Beautiful gold "love" infinity charms adorned the top of the menus. 5 different prints were used for the middle layer of the menus, so no 2 menus next to each other were exactly the same, adding visual interest to each table.

♥We coordinated with the wedding planner to make sure the menus would fit perfectly in the napkins when folded.

♥Keys were even used to decorate the sign on the Escort Card Table.

♥A blush lace print was used on the escort cards, which were displayed in key holders.

♥Burlap & lace was used for the background of the sign for the rustic "guestbook" alternative...Blush scalloped hearts with gold embossed lettering asked guests to hang locks with messages on the couple's very own "Love Lock Bridge".

♥Guests wrote messages to the couple on blush cards we made with mirrored gold hearts, and each card had a hanging heart-shaped locket.

♥We made burlap & lace pull-string bags for the guest favors. Blush scalloped hearts with a message embossed in gold and gold "love" bottle openers hung from each bag.

♥It's all in the details...Even the couple's Instagram Hashtag sign was made to coordinate. We did a watercolor pink wash as the background and found this great cream frame to display it.

♥This couple did the prettiest doughnut cake, and we did the topper to match the event...the sweetest gold script "love" topper.

♥These fancy paper airplanes got guests excited to head to Costa Rica!

♥Every piece of this invitation was like opening a present. The design on the outside of the box was embossed in gold.
♥Instead of a traditional monogram closure, we took a vintage Costa Rican postage stamp and changed the postage to the couple's initials.
♥We carried the vintage Costa Rican postage stamp "theme" to the inside of the invitation suite.  The "Welcome Fiesta" Invitation was on the back of the enlarged vintage pineapple stamp and the "Rehearsal Dinner" Invitation was on the back of another enlarged vintage stamp.
♥Each piece included in the invitation package was unique and the RSVP postcard was a hand map with images representing the couple's relationship.
♥The main invitation had a gold metal embellishment at top and the wording was engraved in grey.
♥Every guest received a unique welcome bag upon arrival...they were all made them out of Costa Rican themed t-shirts!
♥Mini programs were attached to hand-painted fans...There were even tissues in a little pocket on the back page of the programs for the guests' tears of joy.
♥A hand-embossed bird was attached to the Yarmulka basket.
♥The beautiful escort cards were embossed with gold designs and adorned with Swarovski crystals.
♥Each place setting had a hand-painted tile on a mini gold easel... they were taken home by guests to be used as coasters.
♥Love birds with the couple's initials perched on branches with the wedding date were hand-painted on each coaster-tile.
♥Matching larger ceramic trivets were hand-painted with the table names.
♥Custom matches were designed for these love birds.
♥Beautiful hand-made thank you tags hung from burlap sacs that held Costa Rican coffee favors.
♥Painted wood love bird cake-toppers were embellished with the couple's initials using Swarovski crystals.
