Lucy and Van were so low key and relaxed that I honestly didn’t think they’d want to do much for their invitations, but instead, we created something so spectacular that I think it’s one of my all time faves. They had a blowout wedding weekend in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia, and their suite had so many pieces that it was a struggle to get them all in one shot!
In this increasingly modern age (lol could I sound any more like the 80-year-old woman I basically am?), online replies have become more and more prevalent. I’ll often get comments like: ‘I know you probably hate online replies, but I want to do them anyway’, or ‘Is it really that bad to do an online reply?’, and my not so secret answer is that I don’t hate online replies at all! I think they can be a really valuable tool, and if you’re short on time, or want to save a little money, they’re a great way to go.
I love being a small business owner. It’s great to have full control over my schedule and pursue my passion, building something that hopefully will be my lasting legacy. I wouldn’t change it for the world. However, at times being a small business owner can be bananas crazy. You have to wear so many hats, there are always a zillion balls in the air, and you’re ultimately responsible for making sure it doesn’t all come crashing down! For me, I’ve found my busy times come in waves - sometimes really close together waves. There will be slower times where I have a moment to catch my breath and come up for air, and there will be times when I’m pretty much only focused on getting my work done. This used to really stress me out, but now that I’m a little more used to the rhythm, I kind of like it. I thought I would share some of my tactics for making it through the crazy times without losing my sanity.
Taylor and Matt had a beautiful fairy tale wedding at maybe an actual castle? Or wait, it was just the Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem, but basically the same thing. Taylor made my dreams come true by wanting handmade paper, gold foil, and a truly romantic feel that was incredibly fun to create for her.
It’s crazy to think that I have been designing wedding stationery for almost 10 years now! My journey to stationery was not as simple as going from point a to point b, so I thought I’d get into it today. Buckle up, this is a long post!
There’s just something about this invitation suite that I love. The navy blue paired with the gold, the minimalist geometric accents paired with the more romantic florals, or maybe it’s the letterpress and foil that really takes it to the next level.
Suzie and Brandan came to me with the most clear and unique vision, and I had such an incredible time executing it with them! Suzie knew she wanted crisp, modern type, and a minimalist, black and white feel.
