It Began with a Wedding

Future brides often fixate on the dress. My obsession was stationery. Yes, I was excited to marry the love of my life, to be with family and friends, and to celebrate the next stage of life—but I couldn’t wait to design my wedding invitations.

The hours spent sketching and perfecting every line and curve in Illustrator flew by. I was hooked. Peonies, my favorite flowers, took center stage in the invitation, RSVP, and thank you cards. A medley of my favorite flowers was featured on our program, table numbers, and seating cards. I also designed a custom logo that interlinks our first initials (in 2006, two years before Jane Seymour introduced her similar—and in my opinion, not as elegant—pendant).

After receiving our letterpress stationery from Sugar River Stationers, I fell in love with the look and feel of letterpress stationery. Furthermore, my design was selected as an Editor’s Pick in Brides magazine. Maybe I had something here, I thought.
