Each time I see a gallery from one of my couples’ weddings I’m always reminded how amazing and unique each and every one of them is. As a stationer I’m never there the day of, so until the photos come in, I only get to daydream about how perfect their wedding day was.
While designing Courtney and Austin’s reception and day-of items, I had this vision in my head about their wedding. During our consultation as Courtney was chatting about their style, I felt as though I could envision their wedding day perfectly.
That is until I saw the gallery from Courtney Lee Photography. It was a million times more beautiful than I could have pictured. One of my favorite planning groups to work with here in St. Louis are the ladies at Altar’d Events and they helped with the coordination of this event. I should have known that it was going to be an absolute dream.
I loved getting to play a small role in bringing this vision to life through menu and place card design, as well as weekend agenda booklets.

Throughout this series, I’ve been giving tips on planning for your wedding invitations. From when to start planning, to helping you decide on whether custom wedding stationery is right for you, to explaining the pieces of an invitation suite.
Today we’re diving into budgeting for your wedding invitations and day-of pieces. There are a lot of deciding factors that go into determining what’s the right budget for your invitations ranging from the size of your guest list, the number of pieces you’d like to include, and any special finishing touches. The range also varies depending on if you’re choosing a template or investing in custom wedding invitations. Because of this, your wedding invitations could cost anywhere between $400–5,000.
I’m here to help demystify some of those questions you may have about budgeting.
Spring is finally here. The sun has been shining, the trees are starting to bloom, and there are hints of life all around. With spring comes a renewed sense of purpose. Everything feels a bit more possible and we shift from the muted colors of autumn and winter to more vibrant shades of orange and yellow.
Today I’m featuring a beautiful wedding inspiration shoot that reminds me of spring. Florals in stunning oranges, whites, and green. Simple, modern decor, and that bright airy feel.
Wild Carrot was the perfect backdrop for this shoot. This Shaw Neighborhood venue is equal parts funky and cool, with a hint of industrial chic. For the modern couple, this is a perfect venue. From murals to exposed brick and wide garage doors, it’s unlike any other wedding venue in the area.
This styled shoot was coordinated by the oh-so-talented Silvia at St. Louis’ Snapdragon Studio. Not only does she create stunning floral arrangements for couples across the area, but she’s also an incredibly kind and talented stylist.
I’m honored to have contributed an invitation suite and day-of pieces to this shoot. And I love how Alex Nardulli captured every single detail.

There’s nothing more classic than a black and white color palette for a wedding. It’s one that never goes out of style and it’s so easy to make cool and modern, or in the case of Paris and Joe, chic and timeless.
I had the honor to work with Paris and Joe on their February wedding. The two were the epitome of soulmates, having been in each other’s lives since they were kids. It was such a blessing to get to work with them from their save the dates all the way to their day-of materials and help bring their chic black-tie vision to life with the coordinating and planning from the ladies at Altar’d Events, one of the best group of St. Louis wedding planners.
Paris and Joe’s wedding vision was a simple and classic one: lots of creamy whites, over-the-top greenery and florals, with chic pops of gold and black. It was the ultimate black-tie affair hosted at Central West End venue the St. Louis Woman’s Club.
The two were a dream couple to work with and their wedding was like a fairytale.

Early spring means that it’s time to start thinking ahead to summer. Spring brings about those teasingly warm days, glimpses of what summer could bring. And while this spring is just a bit different, that means that my longing for summer is even more intense.
With summer means plenty of summer weddings. And if you’re still planning the details of your big day, I have a treat for you.
It’s no surprise that I love warm, muted tones and earthy neutrals. I find inspiration in the high desert landscapes of Utah and Joshua Tree. One of my favorite vacations that my husband and I took was a two-week road trip through Utah’s National and State Parks, camping on top of his car along the way. There’s something so beautiful about that landscape and as much as I can, I try to utilize it in my designs.
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite shots from a late summer inspiration shoot. Complete with muted warm tones, oriental rugs, great boho wedding style, and a craft brewery. If that doesn’t check off every box of the perfect wedding list, I don’t know what does.
