When I see my invites in print or on a national blog, I get kinda gitty. I got an email before Christmas that Kira and Kyle’s 2016 Montana destination wedding would be featured in Rocky Mountain Bride magazine. Merry Christmas to me!
I still constantly show off their invites to new couples. This was one of the original invitations I designed with a water color floral look. She was right on trend and I loved that I could create this beautiful design for her.
Check out the feature here. And thanks to RMB for featuring this beautiful wedding and beautiful couple!

As I dive into 2017 weddings, I’m designing my fair share of watercolor floral invitations. And with each one being so different, I’m not sure if I can get tired of creating them. And there is always one bride who will set the tone for me. Who will bring me an idea that I’ve been seeing out there, but haven’t created yet.
Kelsey wanted to bring in her neutral floral inspiration into her wedding invitations. My response? Yes, please! I’ve been wanting to create something like these, but since I only do custom design, I need a couple who wants to create these too. And did we ever. Pair a beautifully designed wedding invitation with a blush pocket, a lace belly band and navy blue envelope liners (which I pretty much begged her to do), and I can’t show off this invitation enough.
Kelsey & Grant’s invitation suite is one I feature on my website and my social media quite a bit. Their inspiration and style helped me create a design I show off so much at my invitation consultations. And has inspired other designs as well. For this couple, we created the invitation suite as well as ceremony programs.
And these photos….seriously? Can these two make a rainy wedding day look any more amazing? Congrats, Kelsey & Grant. Your day looked amazing. Thank you for trusting me to design such amazing pieces for your perfect day.

“I really like that one, but could you…”
I hear that once in awhile during a invitation consultation. I tell all couples when we meet and I’m pulling out my bins of invitations, that none of the invitations I’m going to show them are exactly their style. That’s what’s great about custom invitations. You can create whatever you want to match your wedding style.
But Megan saw one of my previous invitations (which I also blogged about) and it was in her wheelhouse. We changed the colors to match the light purple and gray color scheme she was going with as well as changing up the floral arrangement designs. What we came up with…something that was close to the previous invitation, but something truly their own.
For Megan and Nathan’s wedding, I designed these gorgeous invitations with guest information timeline (love this!) that were wrapped in a monogrammed belly band. We also designed coordinating ceremony programs which were on hand when this gorgeous bride walked down the aisle this past May.
Thank you to Megan and Nathan for letting me design for your wedding day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Everything I designed for Sarah just fell into place. And maybe how we first met was a good indication of that. I was in Omaha (from Cedar Rapids at the time) meeting with a few other couples, and she called and wanted to schedule a consultation. I called her back after my first consultation and asked if she had time that morning to meet. Which she did. That was easy, right?
And the fact that I loved their wedding style made everything else easy as well. With a bright royal blue as the main color of their wedding, I knew I was in for something great. I haven’t used this color much (but since that time, I have a few different times). We brought in the tones of her wedding floral (random blues, pinks, peaches and whites) onto the invitation and what we came up with was nothing less than gorgeous.
We designed a simple standard package invitation (minus RSVP) with a royal blue envelope. We printed right on these envelopes to help make those addresses pop. We also designed a ceremony program and seating chart which was at their reception.
From the look of her wedding photos, this is the wedding I had in mind when she described to it me. I hope it was her dream wedding as well. Congrats Sarah & Nick!
