Okay, I’m really excited about these signs. Wedding welcome signs feel like such a good opportunity to really add some personality to your event. They’re useful - have you ever walked up to a party and not been totally sure you’re in the right place? You want your guests to feel welcomed the moment they set foot on the grounds of your venue! And they’re also one of the few things you can save from the wedding, and display in your home as a unique memento of your special day.

Wandering around: Vancouver

Waiting for the cruise ship to go under the bridge... big stuff

When we went to Seattle a couple months ago, we decided it would be a good idea to pop up to Vancouver - did you know it’s only a three hour drive from Seattle? It was so crazy to me that it was basically like driving from Raleigh to Charlotte, except we were in a different country!

Vancouver is one of Canada’s largest cities, surrounded by mountains with an outdoorsy feel, and even though it’s a bit smaller than a lot of American cities, it feels bustling!

Future's so bright I should probably use shades

Some thoughts on goal setting

Hi, can you believe it’s 2020? I hadn’t really given it much thought, until I read something about it being a new decade, and then I kind of freaked out for a minute… A new DECADE! What did I even do these last ten years?

I used to be the queen of over packing. But as I started to travel more, I learned a few valuable lessons, for example, the less you pack, the lighter your bag, and also you don’t really need that much stuff! So since holiday travel is coming up, and as someone who can and will live out of a carry on for two weeks at a time, I thought I’d share a few tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way.

The Pantheon in Rome, illustrated by me!

I had the best time in Rome. It was our first stop in Italy, and it felt magical to be there - we landed early in the morning, and since we couldn’t sleep, we wandered the city. Thinking back, it feels like a dream, and I can’t wait to go back.

We spent three nights in Rome when we arrived, and one night there before we flew home. I’m definitely no expert on Rome, but I thought I’d share what we did, what we loved, and what we’d do next time.

When Margaret and Spenser came to me for their wedding invitations, I knew it was truly going to be a special suite. Spenser proposed to Margaret right after the solar eclipse in 2017. I think that’s honestly the best proposal story I have ever heard - seeing the total eclipse is such an emotional experience, and to become engaged to the love of your life right after? Just like… perfection!

Kind of a lot of people like to tell me how they love my wedding invitations, but they would never want to pay for something like that because it will just go in the trash. Obviously, that’s a huge bummer for me to hear! I work really hard to create beautiful pieces for my clients, and I’d hate to think of all that time and effort as just garbage.
