My Couples

A few weeks back Brooke let me know I had mail at the studio. When I came to pick it up, I expected to find some samples from printers and a Chinese menu or two, but instead I had a pile of thank you notes from my couples.

The stationer isn’t the first vendor you think of when writing your thank you notes. The photographer, sure. The wedding planner, no doubt. I certainly didn’t send one to the paperie where I got my invites. But one of my goals with this business was to be an important vendor to my couples, to really connect with them. Now as I look through photos of my couples, and read the hand-written notes I’ve received from them, I know that I’m on track with that. My job lets me be an artist, but also lets me connect with truly special people who I otherwise would never meet. So this post is a tribute to all you wonderful brides + grooms. Thank you for letting me be worthy of a thank you note, and for letting me in on your love stories.

Truth be told, this was not my usual design aesthetic. It was simple, one-color + classic. But sometimes you connect with a client so well that you’re willing to go outside your design realm a bit. It was great doing a thermography suite, too (printing with raised lettering). And tying the entire suite together with soft grey ribbon made it that much more special!


Alexandra + Liam held their reception at the beautiful Sleepy Hollow Country Club on a beautiful June evening.

I  worked with her + the Stella Day Events team on the day-of paper, including programs, menus, table numbers + escort cards. The one-color palette matched beautifully with these bright blooms!
