Hibiscus Passport

I was really excited when Heather and Travis asked to me create a passport wedding invite for their Jamaican wedding.  For their save the dates, they sent out boarding passes.  To add a more tropical feel, different shades of pink hibiscus flowers were incorporated throughout the passport.  Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to create an amazing invite!

Vintage Dinosaur Baby Shower

I met Buddie a little over 2 years ago when I was visiting my awesome friend Angie at her school where she teaches.  Buddie and Chase were planning their destination wedding in Cabo.  Of course I was asked to make her wedding invites and other wedding stationery. Last summer when I was helping Angie decorate her classroom for the upcoming year, I had just found out that I was pregnant and was about 4 weeks along.  Buddie and I were talking about how she too was trying to get pregnant.  Lo and behold, 3 weeks later, she found out that she and Chase were also expecting!  And now here we are with baby shower invites.  Many couples that I meet with are planning their weddings and their big day with an "I do."  Very little do I have the privilege of continuing their journey with these same couples into parenthood.  So, to say the least,  I feel very honored when asked to take the next step and design and create baby shower invitations.  Congratulations to Buddie and Chase on this amazing adventure and  I can't wait to meet little Cole come May.

A Garden Wedding in Miami

Nicole and Brian had a magical destination wedding in Miami at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens this past January.  Coming from the freezing cold in Massachusetts to beautiful Florida was a perfect getaway.  Featured here are wine labels, table numbers and escort cards that were custom designed and printed.  Boarding passes were sent as invitations in a previous blog.  Thank you again for giving me the opportunity for creating stationery for your special day. 

"A HUGE sincere thanks for all of your help - you did such an amazing job : )"

Baby Shower Passport

What a unique and fun way to send out a baby shower invite than a passport!  Christine contacted me a couple of months ago and had this idea because she wanted something different for her friend's baby shower.  We collaborated by phone and email since she was in New York and once the final draft was completed, Christine was very excited!  Needless to say, I loved designing and making this for the mom to be.  Congrats to Cristina and Khalid.

A Touch of Spring

When I met with Kirstin and David last year, they knew exactly what they wanted.  Well, Kirstin knew exactly what she wanted...David agreed.  :-)  With purples and greens and a touch of raffia, a garden themed wedding was exactly what they wanted for a refreshing spring event.  David and Kirstin also incorporated an engagement picture courtesy of my husband, Ben.  Kirstin wanted to use green envelopes, but didn't want any ordinary label.  So wrap around labels were used to complete the clean and classic look.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

A Personal Touch

This wedding is near and dear to my heart because it's my sister that will be getting married come June.  This first piece of wedding stationery that was created for Lan and Avi sets the tone for her bright pinks/fuschia and eggplant color theme with pewter and lots of bling bling crystals.  Sharing in her wedding planning has had it's ups and downs from color changing to day of scheduling also comes with its rewards.  I am proud to call her my sister not only of the person that she has become but because with all of life's challenges, she has always been there for me.

Palms in Cabo

It was so much fun designing this boarding pass with Heather and her mom, Shannon.  Heather and Jaret will be starting their wedding adventure in Cabo and then ending with a reception here in Houston.  They wanted a tropical feel to their save the dates but will be having a formal reception with the same color scheme of corals, greens and teals.  I can't wait to design their invite to match their awesome save the date.
