Novi, Michigan Bridal Expo!

About a week ago I had the opportunity to meet a TON of newly engaged brides and grooms at the Novi Bridal Expo that was held at the Suburban Collection Showplace.  It was a lot of work to prepare for it but I am still over the moon excited about how amazing my booth looked!  I did a soft launch of the new brand (coming soon) for Lepenn Designs.  A very special thank you goes out to those of you who I had the opportunity to meet.  Many of the couples that I met had the opportunity to sign up for my email list and you can do the same by visiting my website landing page and submitting your name and email address.  Visit the website HERE and look out for a special newsletter coming to your inbox soon!

Here are some photos of my booth along with myself!

And I must end this post with a huge thank you, hug and kiss to my beautiful assistant Jenn! I couldn’t have had a great show without all of her help and support! And yes, we were twinsies for both days of the show! This is funny because she actually has a twin sister who was also our makeup artist!

Jack and Jill of America | Anniversary Gala Invitations & Programs

Jack and Jill of America is a wonderful organization dedicated to nurturing future African-American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty. I was approached by a few members of the Oakland County (Michigan) Chapter to design invitations for a special anniversary gala they were having to celebrate their members. Using their official logo and infamous pink and blue business colors I designed a flat panel invitation with a pink mailing envelope along with a folded card style program for the day of the event. Just like my wedding couples they fell in love with the metallic/shimmer paper so it was used for everything I did for them! I love when I get the opportunity to work on corporate designs, especially for such a great organization as this one.

Stunning Navy Blue and Silver Tri-Fold Wedding Invitations

When I thought about what to title this post, the word “stunning” instantly came to my head! Morgan and Antrell’s sparkly navy blue, silver and white tri-fold style invitations beautifully set the tone for their Fall wedding in Mississippi. Ornate damask style artwork and a patterned background was used throughout the invitation suite. The belly band on the outside of the tri-fold enclosure held it closed and slid off to reveal a layered invitation inside that featured 3 Swarovski crystal rhinestones, and an RSVP set that was attached to the bottom section with a ribbon band.

Coordinating flat panel style programs were also designed for their wedding ceremony.

Rustic Fall Owl Baby Shower Invitations

Today’s featured invitation design is super special because they were designed for the intimate baby sprinkle for our second son! We chose to host an intimate sprinkle (small baby shower) for close family and friends at my favorite italian restaurant, Maggiano’s. The invitations were an oversized 7″ square flat panel that featured woodgrain textured card stock. The oversized ivory envelopes also featured a cutesy owl printed envelope liner. I’ll follow up with another post with pictures from the event!
