Investment

Many have asked about my pricing. I take great pride in the work I do. I have a careful eye for detail and design. Each invitation is hand done by me. It is a long, yet wonderful process. I use various embellishments such as silk boxes, lace, Swarovski crystals, silk ribbons, brooches, various fabrics etc to create a gorgeous piece of art.

As a result, my pricing is based on the design and embellishments used. I do have minimum orders. All orders have a minimum of 50 invitation suites (suites include invitation, RSVP card and reception card), except the silk box collection. The silk box collection has a minimum order of 100.

If you see a design on my blog you love and would want to inquire about pricing, please e-mail me. If you have a design idea of your own and just need someone to bring it to life, please e-mail me with your ideas and I will create a quote for you.

Thank you and I look forward to creating great works of art for your special day.

Lauren and Eric

Lauren contacted in in the summer of 2011. Her wedding would be in early 2012. Let me first say that Lauren was the sweetest client I have ever had. Such a pleasure to work with. She was having a winter wedding and wanted a snowflake themed invitation. Take a peek.





Jan and Gerald

I first met Jan about 2 or 3 years ago on a wedding website. She asked me to design her wedding invitations. I was thrilled. She wanted something elegant. She went through several color combinations and design ideas before settling on this one. An elegant invitation with touches of pink and blue. The pink represent her and her late mother and the blue of course represents Gerald. Take a peek.

She also asked me to design her ceremony programs with the same design and color scheme in mind.

Where It All Began

I fell in love with invitation design when I designed my own Vow Renewal invitations. In the beginning, I had no clue how to do it. I have never designed stationary before. I had searched high and low for the perfect invitation from other designers and could never find "The One". So, I came up with this crazy idea to design my own.

After months and months of trying different designs, color scheme, etc, my FIRST invitation design was complete. I was amazed how well they turned out. I mean they were gorgeous. I had no clue I had this hidden talent. After that, others started coming to me to design their invitations. Hence a design company was born.

Below are no pro photos of our Vow Renewal invitations I designed back in 2010. 




I also designed our menu cards and vow cards.
