Are you obsessed with the aesthetic of fine art weddings, but have trouble picturing yourself
in that serious environment on “the happiest day of your life”?

Then you’re my kind of bride!

 

Blushed is a blend of historic, fine art inspired design with a fresh twist.  Think "Old World's" younger sister—a little more laughter and play, but the same underlying elegance and European flair.  She knows which fork to use, but she can also break the tension with a well placed compliment or joke.

Blushed has been featured on Wedding Sparrow, The White Wren, Wax Seals, Artisaire, Southern Living, Style Me Pretty, Bride Guide, Rising Tide Society, Wedding Day Magazine, and Martha Steward Weddings.

Fine art inspired design with a fresh twist
It’s a tall order, but that’s what I love to do!

As a creative, I believe that standing on the firm foundation of classic, beautifully traditional design with a hidden playful quality is what makes unique, timeless designs.  Just like the healthy marriage that you will have in the near future—solid, but not short of fun.

I have found that the perfect balance is an artwork based design with a little modern, playful twist added in to give it fresh life! And I’ve been addicted to making these heirlooms ever since.

If you’re going to keep it forever, let’s make it worthy of the memories you hold.

Are you dancing with excitement too? Or is that just me…?

What’s Your Vision?

When you Inquire, you’ll fill out a brief Questionnaire (below), so that I can craft you a personalized quote.  After that, we'll chat (typically over a video chat, or in person) about timeline, design, venue and budget, dreaming big and getting to know each other in the process!

Time to Design

Each of my brides has 1-2 weeks dedicated to the design of their heirloom wedding invitations. I am all in for you during this time—I don’t work with any other brides while I work on your personal design!
