Story Save the Date Design + More Minted Goodness

It’s that time again! Designing for Minted is creeping back into my day to day and I am super excited about the latest Save the Date Challenge as well as their Art Challenge.

With every challenge, I feel like I grow more as a designer and being a part of the minted community has really given me so much I am so excited to see how this design year pans out.

Voting is now open for both the Save the Date and Art challenges, click on each of the below designs to vote on them, but feel free to vote on many more designs. There are some pretty innovative creations this time around and I can’t wait to see the winners already!



Not sure if you can tell by all the above designs (with the exception of the last one): I am a little obsessed with shades of Orange. Ha-ha! Thanks goodness the Pantone Color of the year is Tangerine Tango.

Vintage County Fair Chic – NWD Launch Party

The new issue of Nebraska Wedding Day Magazine came out and I’ve just been WAITING to see the spring issue! 

Back in the fall I designed some invitations, menu cards and place cards for a tablescape photo shoot and the images are beautiful.

Then on top of all that, they had a launch party for the new year’s mag and I must say it was a pretty AMAZING event.   Super fab if I do say so myself.   I would categorize it as high-end rustic with super chic county fair flair.   

  The food was delicious gourmet Comfort Food. .

Miniature delights at every corner.  

 {I can’t get over these mini pies!}

And of course a signature drink that was divine.

And to set the tone for the evening I as super pleased last month to receive the beautiful invitations designed and printed by Omaha’s leading letterpress studio Inclosed. 

 {A perfect execution blending multiple typefaces} 

What fun a fun way to get my year started.

Happy New Year and Real Wedding Previews

Well hello and happy New Year!

I must apologize for the long stretch since my last post.  But I have been busy these past couple months.  Many thanks to my booth at the Wedding Essentials Ideas Show this past October.

I’ve met a bunch of really fun couples recently and am so excited for all the fabulous designs that will be created this year!

In the meantime I thought I would put up a few sneak peaks of some real wedding suites yet to be posted.
