lets get to know each other

I am a graphic designer with two degrees from the University of Cincinnati: an Associate’s degree in Art & Visual communication and a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. I love meeting new brides and bringing their wedding vision to life on paper. I strive to make their wedding invitation, one of the first glimpses into their special day, as unique and beautiful as possible.
