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…?
Here’s a look into My Design Process:
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!
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!
Full assembly and delivery to the post office is just another way that I can relieve some of your stress during this wedding planning journey.
If you still have questions, don’t fret! Here are a few of my frequently asked questions:

Don’t take my word for it…
Straight from the Brides:
I can't say enough good things about Katrina and her work! She did our invitation suites [and] programs for us. They were absolutely perfect! I have had multiple people ask who designed them
This may be the most excited Chris and I have been throughout this whole wedding planning process!
Working with Katrina was a treat! I wasn’t quite sure how to articulate exactly what I wanted in terms of a design… but during our first phone call, Katrina had sketched out the perfect design!
