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.

Hello! I'm Melissa.

meet

and even take up an entire room of our house! It was completely unexpected, and I think those are the best surprises life can give you. That's how you know it's truly meant to be!l

From a very young age, my mom always told me that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. I didn’t understand exactly what that meant until hello invite went from a dream to a reality.  

I feel very blessed to be an invitation designer. I am able to make one of the most important days in people's lives just as memorable and special for their guests through a unique and custom design.  

My most favorite part of the design process is producing each invitation meticulously by hand. I always tell my clients that I won't do any less for them on their wedding day than I would do for my own.

I never could have imagined how this dream would take over my life, make me look at the world differently, 

"I never could have imagined how this dream would take over my life."

The truth is, this business found me. When my husband and I got married, I did all of our wedding paper goodies. I loved every minute of it, thinking this would be so much fun to do for a living! I was so shocked at how many compliments we received from the invites to the programs and reception mementos. On our wedding day, I was talking with one of our guests and that's actually where my first real "job" came from; rehearsal dinner invitations! I was so excited. I agreed to do them on the spot – on my wedding day! What started through that one set of 30 rehearsal dinner invites, quickly grew through word of mouth and now here we are almost 7 years later and each year gets busier than the last.

Here is ours.

behind every invite is your love story

I'm based in Cincinnati, OH - and loving having midwestern roots! I serve clients from all over the US and world, though!

ps!

I love getting to know you, my clients! Putting your invitations together by hand means so much more that way.

My mom has always inspired me to do what I love every single day, and I'll never have to work a day in my life. She was so right.

The number of years since I've been in business! Each year gets sweeter and sweeter.
