I’ve always been on the creative side, whether doodling on my notebooks in class or the occasional craft project. I’d lock myself in my room for hours and sketch, however “artist” was never on my list of things to be “when I grow up.” I wanted to be a doctor or a marine biologist - like every other kid.
One of my favorite parts of being a wedding stationery designer is Styled Shoots. As a “behind the scenes” vendor, I’m not often in the mix with the “day of” vendors that tend to get center stage on the wedding day. By participating in a Styled Shoot, wedding vendors are able to come together for a full day of creative preparation and networking in an effort to put together a mock wedding/event.
One of the most often comments I hear when it comes to wedding invitations is “it’s just paper.” While that may be true, this simple piece of paper captures one of life’s biggest moments in such a significant way that it deserves to be treasured as an heirloom and an everlasting memory of that moment. That piece of paper signifies the joining of two hearts and writes the story of the who, what, when and where. Think of it as the prologue to the epic love story your about to embark on.
