michelle + janet_1


It’s been a good week for love. I am not really one to project my feelings too much over this here blog but this calls for it. I was overjoyed with the news that DOMA was declared unconstitutional this week. It truly is a momentous occasion worthy of cracking open a few bottles of Rosé. […]

Real Fact: Cathrin and Dan

Most of my jobs are about creating a fun design that is inspired by a location, or the couple’s life together, etc. but sometimes you get to create art that helps support an already amazing story. When Cathrin first came to me to talk about her save the date, she wasn’t quite sure what she […]

During our first meeting, we ended up talking for almost […]

Palm Springs Save the Date

Even with the blue skies we’ve been having lately in New York, I can’t help but be a little jealous of the Palm Springs weekend KJ and Elizabeth planned! {Relaxing by the pool with a margarita? Doesn’t sound half bad.} Their travel themed save the date is full of bright colors and bold designs that […]

I love doing invitations, save the dates and maps that reflect different locations. It a lovely way to tune out and visit a new place for a little while. The save the date below was done for a client getting married in Cape May, New Jersey. Being that the bride and groom are inviting a […]

Rustic Save the Dates

Simple doesn’t always have to be boring. Lauren and Ryan came to me looking for a save the date that would highlight the rustic feel of their venue: an old western Mass family estate. We wanted to keep things pared down, but still create an atmosphere of warmth for their Fall wedding save the dates. […]
