calligraphy and illustration from invitation to celebration

Congratulations, you’re engaged!

Let’s start planning all the details.

Your wedding invitation is the first taste your guests get of what’s to come— let’s get them so excited they’re counting down ‘til your wedding! There’s so much to think about when you’re planning, so I’m going to help tame all those ideas and endless Pinterest quests into something tangible that you and your honey will love.

How It Works


This is where we get to know each other. You fill out an initial questionnaire so that by the time we have our first meet- ing, we’re practically neighbors. This is my favorite part of the process, where we get into all the details of exactly what you’re looking for. We brainstorm ideas, I’ll get you an estimate, and once you approve, we’re in business (literally)!

Design + Production

This is where the fun really begins. We go through the design process together, with plenty of sketches and samples along the way to make sure you’re in love with what’s happening. Here, we’ll go from mood board to print proofs, with the ability to refine and revise at every stage. We’ll also talk about finishing touches to complete your invite suite, like dreamy silk ribbons or custom wax seals. It’s all about the details!


We did it! This is when your invite goes to print. Once all your pieces are printed, you can choose to have everything sent to you for assembly, or go hands off and let me take care of envelope stuffing and trips to the post office. Now’s the time to bask in the fact you’ve got one major thing off your list, and are one step closer to celebrating with your boo!

If you need more paper goods for your big day, like table signs and place cards, we can start that talk after the invites are complete—you’ve already been through the design process once, so it’ll be smooth sailing!

Have some Q’s?

I have some A’s!

How long does the process take?
Starting with a tricky question I see! Design and development take time, and a lot can vary based on the complexity of the job, but typically the design process takes about ten weeks. Printing can add up to two weeks to the process, depending on which method we’re working with. Additional time is needed for things like assembly and calligraphy, so once we determine the scope of the project, you’ll receive a timeline for the whole process. Of course, I understand things can get busy, so let me know if you’re in a rush when we start and we might be able to work out something amazing.
What if I have a small budget?
I totally get it! Weddings involve a lot of moving parts, and it’s easy to lose track of expenses. When we first start working together, we can discuss what you’re after and find the print method, paper choices, and other details to make your invite work for you, with even a little extra leftover in the budget for the open bar.
How does mailing work?
Mailing can be done in one of two ways: you or me! If you want to mail your own invitations, all your pieces will be packed and shipped (yes, even calligraphed envelopes) to you once they’re back from the printer. You’ll get some tips from yours truly to help make your mailing a success and make sure your invites reach their final destination looking gorgeous. If you’d rather I take care of the mailing, then it’s time to kick back: I’ll do all the weighing, stuffing, stamping, and sealing of each invite on your list before bringing them to the post office with the help of my assistant patient boyfriend. Because they’ll be leaving from Nashville, your invites will reach most domestic destinations within three days of mailing.
What if I have an etiquette question?
No sweat! Wedding etiquette has changed a lot since the days of Emily Post, so I can provide you both traditional and updated rules depending on your style and the level of formality of your event. We’ll be in communication throughout the working process, so you can send a question any time. I’ll also send you a helpful cheat sheet when we get to addressing, one of the most questioned parts of the process
I don’t know where to start!
That’s okay! I like to take inspiration from lots of sources, not just other wedding stationery. I recommend starting with an inspiration board (paper or Pinterest) to help understand the feel of your event with things like color and mood. Not feeling visual? Just start with the wedding questionnaire [make that a link to the form pls].
How do I book you?
Just drop me a line: [obvs that should be a clickable thing that makes an email pop up, subject line “Let’s work together”]

Ready to get started?

Let’s make something awesome together.
