Creating Your Design

I generally do a minimum of five variations of a design, working to incorporate the words, flowers, and colors for the mood you want to set. 

All calligraphy and artwork is done by hand.

You can pick one design that strikes your fancy...or mix and match separate elements from different layouts for your perfect invitation. 

Once you choose, I take the final design to the printer.  Then it is ready for hand-painting and/or guest name insertion.

With today's fabulous printing processes, color copies are, of course, an avenue to explore...However, the delicate nuances that happen with hand-painted watercolor are something that can't be duplicated.  If your budget allows, these invitations are another unforgettable part of your "Day to Remember!!"

A design fee of $150.00 is payable as a non-refundable deposit at the start. 

After you choose your design, this deposit is applied to the final bill.

What you see here is the typical "array" I produce for each bridal couple after we tell me colors,

how you picture your day, describe the ambience: romantic, sophisticated, etc...and I go to work.
