Kristin + Dave: St. Anne Catholic Church, The Westin Chicago Northwest

She never stopped smiling! Most brides are happy on their wedding day, but this was different. She was the happiest I have ever seen her. Kristin is a long time friend of mine and it was my absolute pleasure to see her find Dave. Kristin is someone who would do anything and everything for you. She is always putting others before herself and it was so awesome to see Dave and her be celebrated for the whole weekend!! She so very much deserved this magical day!! Dave and Kristin gathered family and friends for an amazing ceremony at St. Anne Catholic Church in Barrington, which is our hometown, and continued the celebration at The Westin in Itasca. This wedding was full of love, laughter, great speeches, delicious food, gorgeous flowers, lots of candy and tons of dancing!  It was such an honor helping to brand Kristin and Dave's wedding day with my stationery.

This branding experience consisted of the whole package! Save the dates, wedding invitations, table numbers, escort signs, the menu, programs, welcome hotel tags, thank you cards, and the lighting crew even used the "H" I designed, from their wedding invitation, in lights shinning in the tent all night! It was so awesome! Everything went together and branded their special wedding day. 

Thank you Kristin and Dave for trusting me with your vision and letting me be part of your wedding day! To many many many more!!!

Veronica + Kevin: Destination Orlando, Florida Wedding

We are ramping up for a new wedding season and reminiscing about last years wonderful weddings! 

I had a baby three months ago, which is why it has been so long since my last post, but I have been waiting to get this wedding to you and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Take a look at this stunning destination wedding in Orlando, Florida. The ceremony took place at Corpus Christie Catholic Church in Celebration and the reception was held at the Omni Championsgate Orlando. 

I know Veronica from college. We both have a love for basketball and played whenever we could find a court. Oh and we were the intramural champions 2 years in a row!! Enough about the glory days...Let's get to the good stuff.  Veronica and I reconnected in Baltimore just before she got engaged to Kevin and I was delighted to have her back in my life. After a quick get together, I could tell how much love they had for each other and how happy they made each other.  Soon after that get together they were engaged! Veronica contacted me about designing her invitations and I couldn't have been more excited! Together we came up with some really great elements to make each piece personal and meaningful and bring the wedding day together.

I just can't get enough of all the beautiful unique details from her engagement ring, to the JMU and UNC ice luge, bells of Ireland flowers, and THAT DRESS!

Have a look for yourself all the greatness that was Kevin and Veronica's Wedding day!

Tara + Glenn: Orchard Ridge Farm Wedding

"I choose you. And I'll choose you over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I'll keep choosing you."

Tara and Glenn experienced loved at first site when they met a little over three years ago. They had an immediate connection that they just couldn't quite explain. Together they love exploring new restaurants, coffee shops and keeping busy with friends and family. I am so excited for you to share in the unforgettable moments of their special wedding day!

They got married at the same venue my husband and I got married! I loved seeing the space transformed differently to fit Tara and Glenn! Everything was so beautiful and everything went as planned thanks to a trusty and amazing wedding planner, Taneel. 

Congrats Tara and Glenn!! What a beautiful celebration of love!
