What a great evening shared with good friends and family at a family farm in Shreveport, Louisiana.  The bride pulled off a very lovely outdoor Vintage Chic Farm Wedding in October, complete with a crisp autumn breeze, shrimp po-boys, Zapp’s VooDoo chips, jambalaya with andouille sausage, great beer, wine, cider and dancing until the sun came up.  Cheers to Caitlyn and Tyler!!

Fairy Tales Do Come True

July 22, 2015

I was so incredibly excited to create invitations for two very special people. All the excitement leading up to their special day was electrifying. From the Rehearsal Dinner Celebration to the moment Kelly and Cameron said their I Do’s in front of their friends and family, you could feel the love that brought them together. The Princess got her Prince at a lovely castle and it was nothing short of a Grand Ball Reception that followed.

I had so much fun creating the invitation for Black Crow Media Open House 2015. When I decided to integrate the old school boom box as part of the design, I pitched the idea of using a sound module as part of the invitation. The idea was to have all the DJ’s from each station at Black Crow do a shout out and create the illusion of tuning in the radio dial, what the production team at Black Crow produced was short of brilliant! Thank you Black Crow for hearing the pitch as I saw it in my head and for allowing me the freedom to create it.

A Castle Fit for a Princess

January 21, 2015

I was completely over the moon when I was asked to design the wedding invitations for this lovely couple from Raleigh, NC – Everything is set for Summer 2015 and waiting for the “I Do’s” in a castle fit for Cinderella and her Prince. It doesn’t hurt that the Groom to be, looks just like another prince we know; and to top it off, he was born in England. The wedding will be in blush pink, metallic beige, gold and ivory. Enjoy this sneak peak at Kelly and Cameron’s engagement photos.

The Polished Princess

December 23, 2014

What do you do when your little princess has fallen in love with dinosaurs? Plan her a fabulous 3rd Birthday Party at The Perot Museum of Nature and Science of course. Challenging, yes, but when this special little clients mom requested that I create an invitation to combine her little girls love of Princesses and Dinosaurs, the result was a lovely collaboration of beauty and science.

Southwest Classic

October 31, 2014

It is always a great honor when my clients give me complete design control over their invitations, from design concept to completion. Texas has waited 2 years to see these rival teams: Texas A&M vs. University of Arkansas take the field in the Southwest Classic played at Dallas Cowboy Stadium. The invitations are a boxed invitation in black, custom field markers with invitation on top. Inside this clients customers will find two faux “tickets” to join them in their luxury suite. The back of the ticket has both teams 2014 schedules and can be used as a book mark. They will also find two custom team sugar cookies in a field of green “grass”.

The Color of My Love

October 31, 2014

…and with this ring ours lives will start, Let nothing keep our love apart. I’ll take your hand in mine, and be together through all time. – David Foster and Arthur Janov
And so this is how their love began, with a tender song of promising love. Keith and Ronda found each other and committed themselves to one another at a beautiful, quaint and intimate service at the Holy Cross Immaculata, at the top of a hill, rich in history, they took their vows, one to the other. Afterwards, their guests were whisked away by private coaches to the Cincinnati Art Museum to enjoy a delicious sit down formal dinner reception, music and dancing the night away. Thank you both for allowing me the opportunity to share in your special day.
