and storyteller of love.

designer, Calligrapher, Writer,

When I'm not designing or styling, you can find me expanding my library, writing my novel, scouring antique stores, or remodeling the new mid-century home my husband and I share with our sweet (and crazy) kitty-cow named Stormy Llewelyn. 

I know that ordering invitations can be a daunting task. There are so many things to think about! My favorite thing to do is to make the invitation process simple and enjoyable for my clients.

If you want to create pieces that last for the rest of your lives, or you have a burning desire to give your guests a memorable experience, you’ve come to the right place! 

Don’t worry about deciding on paper type, how to mail your invites, or any of the nitty gritty details — I’ll handle all of that for you!

I’ll take your budget and desires into account and will present you with options that will delight both you and your loved ones.

my love story

Since I ask all of my couples how they met, it's only fair that I share my love story here, too!

I met my husband in AP Chemistry class in high school (no joke!), where he sat in the seat behind me all year. We dated very briefly, then went our separate ways for almost 10 years.

One night, while out with my bestie (who was also his childhood friend), she spotted him and waved him over to our table. We stayed up all night talking and watched the sun rise at the beach. I kept our relationship platonic for about a year, until I finally fell. (He's proof that persistence is key, ladies and gents!)

We both knew from the start that it was serious, and were engaged almost 3 months to the day after making it official! We tied the knot at The Addison (dream venue!) in sunny South Florida and I've never been happier.

why i started

My creativity has manifested itself in many interesting ways throughout my life. 

When we took family vacations, I dreamed up elaborate printed trip itineraries. My lifelong passion for design and balance was channeled into a successful and award-winning graphic design career. But as far back as I can remember, I have been writing and telling stories about love. 

When I rediscovered my childhood calligraphy set, I knew that I had found my calling. But I didn't leave my roots behind: I still tell stories every day...except now, they're real love stories with real happily ever afters. 

I take great pride in thoughtfully designing pieces for weddings that also serve as precious keepsakes. My pieces are designed in-house and assembled with a delicate touch—all to bring joy and excitement to both you and your guests.
