One of a kind wedding stationery featuring custom calligraphy and watercolor

ABOUT THE PROCESS:

Step 1. The Proposal

 

After filling out the contact form below, I'll send over more information about my offerings and pricing. From there, I'll put together a proposal tailored to your selections. Once the proposal is squared away (contract signed and 50% retainer paid), I will send over a questionnaire to gather all of the fun details about you & your wedding! After all, your invitations should be a personal reflection of the two of you as a couple, so this what inspires the rest of the process.

Step 2: The Sketch

Once I know how you two met, your vision for your wedding, and any special elements you'd like included (venue illustration, a painting of your golden retriever, etc.), I create your very own mood board which consists of your color palette, design aesthetic, and inspiration images behind your invitations. You'll also get a sketch of the invitation artwork & design so that I can make sure you absolutely love it before I dive into the watercolor and calligraphy. 

Step 3: The Painting & Design

Once you approve the sketch, my favorite part begins! I put my tools to work to create your wedding stationery, and you will receive proofs for printing approval. We'll take care of any tweaks to ensure each piece is 100% perfect. 

Step 4: Production

Your invitations get sent to the printer! If you'd like to sit back and relax, I can take care of all the assembly and mailing for you. Otherwise, I send you all of the materials for you to stuff and lick your envelopes at home! 

Step 5: Get Married

Your one of a kind invitations arrive in your guests mailboxes, and you get to marry the love of your life!
