Today, today is all about miracles. The truth is miracles, both large and small, happen every day. We just have to be willing to see them. In this time of uncertainty, that can be a challenging feat especially as we try to navigate our "new normal," however temporary. But in opening my eyes, I've witnessed communities come together, neighbors helping neighbors. I've witnessed people putting down their devices and being present. I've seen children out riding their bikes and playing basketball in their driveway. I've seen a world, isolated from each other, come together to fight an unknown, and you want to know something? We will win.
Today is #waxsealwednesday and you all know how much I love my wax seals. I'm sharing a wax stamp that is ALMOST as near and dear to my heart as the person I designed it for. My cousin (and one of my closest friends), along with her husband, have been through hell and back trying to start their family. Their journey started in 2016, and they have struggled with both pregnancy loss and infertility since that time. Fast forward to 2019, and two rounds of IVF that resulted in ONE healthy embryo to transfer. One. In May we will celebrate Miracle Baby Young, and in June we will welcome him to the world. My heart absolutely bursts with joy for them and I am beyond honored to have been allowed to be a part of their journey.
Miracles, my friends. Miracles. XOXO...
If I've learned anything throughout this process, it's how to go with the flow. Okay, that isn't entirely honest. I like structure. I like being able to plan. I find safety in predictability, and right now I'm struggling with the unknown. If you are anything like me, stay tuned. I'm putting together a list of ideas, to help you think outside the box, when planning your wedding (or any event) during this time.
In the meantime, I've designed some digital postponement announcements that can be ✨ personalized to your specifications/specific circumstances. ✨ If you fancy treating your guests to some ‘happy post’, printed cards can be created to suit your style, and then safely delivered to you....
Moody, elegant and classy with some attitude. All the admiration and love for this bride squad and the vendors who made it happen. 😲😍

A little sneak of something I've been working on for a styled shoot for @junipermountainhouse with the amazing @ashleecrowdenphoto and @abridesbestmate. I'm so grateful I get to be a part of this...even if it is from another state. 😀 Excited to see it all come together....
𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐃𝐀𝐘 𝐓𝐑𝐔𝐓𝐇: Post captions are extremely challenging for me. Well, to be perfectly honest, social media in general is awkward for me. To risk aging myself, I grew up long before the internet, much less social media, was even invented 😲, so the idea of sharing 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 remotely personal is still an anomaly to me. It isn't uncommon for me to stare at my screen 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴 (or at least come back to a post several times) before I figure out what to say, and even then, it's often stilted and "business like." I blame my extreme Type A, literal brain for this. If I post an image of an invitation, I *should* talk about the invitation. I mean, it makes sense, right? But, I've decided to challenge myself. I'm going to try to show the human side of my business, the person behind the screen, the person who is uptight but trying so hard to relax a little. Shall we get started???
Three fun facts about me:
1. I LOVE to read, but haven't read anything educational for years. I blame it on graduate school.
2. I think eating is stupid and only do it because I want to stay alive. 😅
3. Running is my primary stress/anxiety relief. At least 6 days a week I lace up my shoes and hit the pavement. I'm a better human that way.
Have any fun facts about yourself?? Drop them in the comments below! 👇...
Gaaah! I'm in love with this beautiful signage. Clean, elegant, classic and modern all in one. And the florals. Oh those florals make my heart go pitter patter. ❤💐

How incredibly stunning is this mood board??? For me, mood boards are the ideal way of organizing my thoughts into a beautiful visual.....and when it comes out as gorgeous as this, I just stop and stare. 👀
I was blessed to be part of a styled shoot at @thegatheringplaceatcldi a couple of weeks ago. Photos courtesy of this shoot and the absolutely amazing group of people who helped make it happen.
If you haven't checked out @thegatheringplaceatcldi for your wedding/event, be sure you do. It's simple, elegant, and full of charm. ❤

Ahhh letterpress. I love letterpress. It is my all time favorite printing process. It effortlessly elevates a traditional wedding invitation from plain to elegant and instantly transforms a simple typographic design into a work of art.
But how in the world does it work? And why is it so much more expensive than flat printing?
Letterpress dates back to the 15th century and is the oldest, and most luxurious, form of printing. A reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into paper, creating an impression you can see and feel.
Letterpress plates are created for each color that is imprinted, so pricing is based on the number of colors used. Each color is mixed by hand as well. Once ready, the ink is applied to the plate, the paper is hand fed through the printing press and the plate is pressed into the paper, creating an inked indentation. The more colors, the more plates and the more times each piece of paper is hand fed through the machine = the higher the cost.
Letterpress gives a one-of-a-kind, tactile result that no other printing method can replicate. It's luxurious, stunning and is sure to leave a lasting impression for years to come....
Details. Gorgeous little details like ribbon and wax seals can add so much to your wedding suite.
A fun little tip: Be sure and use parchment paper under your wax to prevent it from getting on your invitation. :-) Want to see the end result?

Black. Truth be told, black has been incorporated into your wedding palette forever (hello traditional black tux), but using it in other aspects of your wedding, such as decor or your invitations, is a fairly recent trend. As weddings have become increasingly personalized, couples are expanding their color choices and I'm incorporating black into wedding stationery more and more often.
Sometimes the couples I work with struggle to "see" how to include black, especially when paired with a softer shade, such as dusty pink. The easiest, and most cost effective method (in my humble opinion) is to use different shades of cardstock and/or envelopes. There are so many options available to you, that changing out one of your enclosure or envelope colors is an easy way to pull in your color palette, without breaking the bank.
Whatever your desires, don't be afraid to incorporate a little black. It beautifully sets off other colors and creates a truly eye-catching invitation.
