Once upon a time…

Once upon a time… a sweet, young woman contacted me after seeing my princess castle invitations that I did a few years back for a first birthday. She and her fiancé wanted something unique and special to share with family and friends. I was excited to take on this project and give them a personalized wedding invitation that shared their incredibly romantic and unique story. 75 invitations, over 2,000 hand applied gems and pearls, 75+ hours ~ serious labors of love and I truly feel honored to have been a part of it all. I’d love for you to take a moment to read their “Once upon a time…”

 

 

Once Upon A Time…

I was thrilled when a past client contacted me to create this unique, girly invitation for her daughter’s first birthday. A few inspirational images, some poetry, hours of adjusting color hues, and voila – an invitation fit for a princess. Well I think so anyway…

Such an important event deserves a party as special as the birthday girl herself. I think her mother did just that and the party turned out amazing! Here are pics from the special day. (Aislynne, thanks for sharing with me.)
