What inspired your business name?
At this point I’ve decided to use my name for my personal design business since design and creativity make up such a large part of who I am. It’s more than just a business, it’s a creative outlet I use for clients as well as my own ideas.
How long have you been in business?
I have been designing for weddings a little over a year now, working in the design field for about 4 years, and creating for as long as I can remember.
Why did you choose to pursue your current profession?
The ability to turn my passion for art into a career, led me to get a degree in art and design in college, but it wasn’t until my friends started getting married that I really got into the wedding side of it. Beginning to design for clients and couples I knew so well, made me realize the importance in really capturing their wedding and relationship in the design.
What sets your business apart?
I think a wedding is more than just one special day. It represents many past and future years of a relationship, including all the stories a couple shares that make them unique. Being able to express that in a wedding invitation gives guests a first glance at what it means to be celebrating the future bride and groom. One of my favorite ways to do that is to incorporate small detailed illustrations of important moments of each relationship that make it a completely custom piece.
Describe your ideal client(s).
My ideal clients would be couples who appreciate the art of design and print. Someone looking for the quality and uniqueness of a custom piece and someone with an understanding that paying just a bit more than the price of a cheap or templated design can get you something so special and personal.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I love doing pretty much anything outdoors and active, like sailing, running, barre, and traveling. I feel like I have a constant stream of energy and ideas to want to be doing or creating something all the time.
Who inspires you?
Aside from the many amazing entrepreneurs and designers out there, everyone I talk to and work with inspire me. Everyone, non-creatives included, has a unique perspective that can lead to fun collaborations and ideas.
Do you have a quote you live by?
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.- Walt Disney
