Meet Amanda, Owner & Designer

I was always that girl who meticulously crafted their AIM and Myspace profiles. And don’t get me started on LiveJournal. What started as a hobby blossomed into a small freelance career. I designing things that were personal and close to me.

As my husband and I were planning our wedding, I decided I’d take on designing our wedding invitations and paper goods. From that moment on, I was obsessed with the details that make a huge impact on your special day.

With each project, I pour in the same personal touch as I did with my own wedding invitations. These moments of your life (weddings, babies, anniversaries, even birthdays) deserve to be celebrated and high-quality paper goods to set the tone for each and every one of them.

When not designing beautiful paper goods for in love couples or helping female creative business owners with their graphic design needs, you’ll find me soaking up all my free time with my daughter Eloise, baby boy Win, and Justin, my husband. We have two cats who have old man names (Ted and Bruce). We live in St. Louis, Missouri, but love to travel.

“…Amanda is simply the best. She totally understood our clean, modern vision and created absolutely stunning invitation suites, escort cards, menus, and signage. We are so happy we hired her and would wholeheartedly recommend her to any couple.”

Catherine & Mike

"Amanda came highly recommended and was fantastic to work with from start to finish. We loved her style and custom look she brought to all of our invitations and day of items. Amanda went above and beyond when we had to postpone our 3/21/20 wedding, six days prior. Our final products were beautiful and felt so personal. You will love how all these small details add such a large impact to the overall feel of your day!"

"Amanda was a true professional throughout the entire process of designing our wedding stationery suite. It was always difficult for me to put my vision into words, but every time, without fail, Amanda managed to bring my vision to life! Wedding stationery was at the very bottom of my list of things to worry about while wedding planning! And her envelope liners are *chef’s kiss*."

Kiersten & Ian
★★★★★

"When we first started planning our wedding I knew one thing I really wanted to focus on was our invitation suite as it really sets the tone for your special day. When we met with Amanda she picked up on what I envisioned and made it SO MUCH better! She brought in details that I never would have even thought of, which really tied our "Saint Louis" theme together. When we had an idea for menus that incorporated family photos, Amanda found a way to make it happen. I can't say enough great things – if I were to re-plan our wedding day I would 100% choose Leighwood Design Studio again!"

Hannah & Mike
★★★★★

"Amanda was such a joy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone. Her invitation suites are beautiful and super customizable, which as an indecisive bride could have had the potential to be overwhelming, but Amanda was so so great at honing in on what I liked right away and creating something I loved, offering really helpful suggestions and expertise along the way. My husband and I got married in November 2020, amid many COVID fluctuations, last-minute guest list changes, and more. She was so organized, set really clear expectations/deadlines, and made the process really fun. We're really grateful for her work!"
