About

Hi, I'm Kathy!

I鈥檓 passionate about creating the invitations you鈥檝e dreamed of your entire life. It鈥檚 not just about sending an invitation on pretty paper. It鈥檚 about creating an intentional, meaningful invitation experience that brings your guests along on your greatest adventure yet.

I know ordering your wedding invitations can seem like an intimidating task. But it doesn鈥檛 need to be! I love making the invitation design process simple, stress-free, and meaningful for you. I truly enjoy incorporating calligraphy and custom watercolor illustrations into each new design. That鈥檚 how I make it 100% yours!

I value communication, and pour every ounce of my attention and care into crafting your invitations. You will never be left wondering what the next step is or when you鈥檒l hear back from me. Most of my email responses will be within 24 hours of receiving your email during the week, so there鈥檚 no need to worry!

My mission is to give you peace of mind in knowing that all the details are being handled by a professional. I provide the best client experience with great communication and quality materials. I will provide answers to your questions and work hard to create a beautiful invitation suite for your wedding that will be cherished for years to come.

I offer a full-service, stress-free design experience. All of my design packages include the following:

  • Unlimited artwork and proofing
  • Material and design choices that fit your budget and aesthetic
  • Production and printing
  • Assembly and mailing
  • Keepsake suites and photo-ready extras
  • A secure client portal to house all of your proofs, emails, and invoices

We're a perfect fit if

  1. Heartfelt details are important to you: I鈥檓 head over heels in love with including even the smallest of details that are important to you as a couple. Throughout the design process, I really get to know you, your favorite things to do as a couple, and what鈥檚 most important to you as you plan your wedding.
  2. You value a stress-free experience: There鈥檚 no need to add more onto your To Do list while you plan your perfect wedding. I鈥檒l handle everything from beginning to end, only presenting you with options that fit your desires, budget, and aesthetic.

I kindly ask that each of my new friends who are interested in my services fill out this questionnaire. This will help me to get a good idea of what you're looking for, and so I can get the most accurate estimate as possible! https://hello.dubsado.com/public/form/view/5e57c58ed6645470cfa8e74a
