describe your artistic style: I work primarily with watercolor and calligraphy, mediums that lend themselves well to my whimsical, romantic design aesthetic. I'm inspired by flowers, architecture, and the colors of nature. Whether it's simple and elegant, playful and bold, or bohemian chic, all of my designs play with tradition and give the wedding a unique, personal, and down-to-earth touch.
what inspires you? I love creating invitations that reflect the unique personality of my clients -- whether it be their love of animals, their passion for the outdoors, or the story of how they met -- and I believe that the right invitation suite can make even the largest wedding feel special and intimate. That moment when your guests get your wedding invitation in the mail? I want it to feel like they are being invited to step into your lives. This spirit imbues all Emily Rose Ink paper products with a loving, personal touch. Planning a wedding can also be stressful, but my step-by-step custom process makes it easy to create personalized custom wedding paper goods without sacrificing your sanity. I guide you through each step, providing expertise and advice along the way.
what do you love about weddings? I'm a hopeless romantic who is most passionate about love, beauty, and friendship - and weddings are a combination of this magical trifecta, so it's only natural that I found myself in this industry! I STILL cry when I watch strangers' wedding videos, and my favorite part of my job is getting to see the couples' pictures after the big day. I also believe that weddings should be not only beautiful but meaningful, and that invitations can serve this purpose by incorporating the little details of your life into the design.
