"I DON'T JUST DESIGN STATIONERY; I CREATE AN HEIRLOOM THAT REPRESENTS ONE OF THE MOST MOMENTOUS DAYS OF YOUR LOVE STORY, THE DAY YOUR HAPPILY EVER AFTER TRULY BEGINS."
MY MISSION IS ALSO MY PASSION
The moment I began designing my own wedding invitations was the very moment my passion for stationery design came to life. I had a clear vision of what I wanted; a visual story I wanted our invitation to tell. It was important to me that it would not only reflect our style and set the tone for our wedding day, but that it would also evoke a feeling to be cherished and provide a way to look back on it. I knew from the very beginning that I didn’t just want an invitation, I wanted to create an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
That passion has transcended into my mission for each of my stationery clients. I don't just design stationery; I create an heirloom that represents one of the most momentous days of your love story, the day your happily ever after truly begins. It has been an absolute dream to be even just a small part of such a special occasion in the lives of my clients. It would be my honor to work with you and create your heirloom wedding stationery.

I grew up in the state of Maine. We always lived in quiet, eclectic, charming little country towns filled with old houses and little antique shops. There were beautiful mountains, rocky coastlines, and billions of stars at night. It was calm and quiet. I still remember the smell of raspberry bushes and the sound of the ocean waves crashing against the rocks. While I sometimes miss the snow, I love visiting in the summer and fall. It always seems so much smaller than I ever remember it, but it's always much more charming and beautiful.
After securing a job with a real estate investment and development company, I relocated to Florida in 2010. I worked in the Sales Department, as a Hotel Group and Event Coordinator, for three of their hotels (yes, at the same time). After about three years, I was promoted to the General Manager of their Marriott hotel, where I worked for five years.
With a background in hotel management, I took a huge leap of faith in 2018, when I made the decision to leave my career and pursue my passion. Though it was hard to walk away from something I worked so hard for, I have chosen to follow my heart always.
I have always loved the timeless, romantic feel of antique pieces. Likely, because my parents owned an antique store when I was growing up in Maine. Our house was filled to the brim with all things old. I often find myself inspired by French provincial styles, antique furniture, vintage fashion, and old, intricate jewelry pieces. I love marrying elements of new and old into my stationery designs to maintain that romantic, antique feel while incorporating modern style typography and updated layout designs. I also find inspiration in nature. I love the ocean, trees, wildflowers, bees, butterflies, and birds. I love that these elements of nature are often found in vintage art and design.
THE MEANING BEHIND OUR LOGO
Forget-me-nots represent true love, fidelity, and an everlasting connection that cannot be broken or shaken by anything or anyone – a connection that stands the test of time. When you give someone this flower, it symbolizes true love and respect. It represents a promise to them that they will never be forgotten in your thoughts.
Not only is blue an elegant, timeless color, but it also symbolizes love, purity, and fidelity. Forget-me-not flowers are a beautiful representation of the promises that are made on a wedding day.
