Custom Branding
& The Lovely Process

WE BELIEVE IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE PAPER, IT'S ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE!

You may be asking yourself, "Hmmm...I've heard of branding before, but I thought it was just for businesses?" We're here to say no way! Super speedy version: it's not just the paper, it's the experience.  Slightly longer version: wedding branding is more than lovely invitations; it's a complete design experience! We take the time to get to know you, & learn your love story! And together, through fun chats, icecream/skype dates, we begin to build your brand. We will create a unique, cohesive identity, through the use of mood boards, sketches & designs which will visually share your love story.

This identity, or brand, will be the concept that ties all the little details together to create a complete experience that you & your loved one will always hold close to your hearts. It will be present from your guests' first glimpse of your save the dates & invitations & throughout the look & feel of your big day. It will be the creation of your and your love's personal branded identity, which you can cherish as your love grows happily ever after!

Proving the method

During an initial meeting our client Trisha mentioned in passing that her then fiancé, Richard, had his pilots license & they were going flying that weekend. We thought this was super fun so we kept a note of this awesome hobby on our potential imagery list. We continued getting to know the couple, learning their fun style & the whimsical tone they wanted to set for their special day. Then when it came time to concept design visions, we surprised them & found a way to tie it into their suite - they were thrilled & so were we!

Are we a good match?

Wondering if we would be a good match? If you are an amazing couple looking for the perfect wedding branding system that will make you say YAY, here's how you'll know if we go together like paper & pencils. If you are lovers of hand crafted, whimsical, cheerful, original, inspiring design. If you value uniqueness & attention to detail. If you hold a special place in your heart for hand-lettering & paper goodies & you love creating happiness...this could be a super fabulous match! If you care deeply about making this day all about your unique love for each other & those who have helped you along your path to each other..then YES please! It's a match made in paper heaven!
