Hello there! I’m Brittany and I love making things pretty! I am a die-hard Martha Stewart fan, a California girl living in the South and I love hosting events, no matter the size! You’ll never catch me without a book to read or a pen to letter with! I am a former luxury wedding planner and event designer that fell in love with paper and design! I was lucky enough to have met my best friend, my soulmate, my other half at a young age (I was a little 19 year old baby in college!) and this year we have been together for 14 years and married for an entire decade! And I love him more today than I ever thought possible! We have a 7 year old son who is a social butterfly and bursting with personality and a 2 year old little girl who is independent, opinionated and my mini me!
I have a passion for designing custom bespoke wedding stationery + calligraphy that tells a visual story of my couples, their personalities and their love story in heirloom pieces for them to treasure for a lifetime. Each piece is lovingly designed, crafted and curated to reflect that couple, I tell your story through pen and paper. I love working with engaged couples who believe in love, want to create a meaningful and purposeful marriage and choose each other everyday, continuing to choose each other each and everyday. I am all about the design details that take stationery beyond a piece of paper whether it’s a custom wax stamp or a beautiful silk ribbon tied up in a bow.
Calligraphy and handlettering is a time honored tradition I love sharing exclusively with my stationery couples and branding clients, adding the next level of “wow” to stationery. A couple’s story doesn’t end at the invitation, I take pride in continuing stories with day of paper and calligraphy details, handmade novelties and gifts going beyond the conclusion of an event.
Beyond weddings + events, I am a visual storyteller for businesses creating authentic and distinctive brands, compelling logos and creative collateral that tells their story. I love creating brands that convey a story and are true reflections of the people behind the brand. Your brand should be a reflection of you and I am passionate about designing brands for small businesses that tell a story, your story.
I am currently based in Williamsburg, Virginia and would love to meet you for a cup of coffee, talk over the phone, exchange emails or chat on Skype + Facetime. Although I’m physically based in Virginia my services are available nationwide and internationally thanks to the wonderful advancements in technology. I have clients from all over including, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Maryland, Charlottesville, Virginia, Asheville, North Carolina, Atlanta, Georgia, Nashville, Tennessee, San Diego, California, Orange County, California, West Palm Beach, Florida, San Fransisco, California, New York City, New York, Charleston, South Carolina, Memphis, Tennessee, Williamsburg, Virginia + beyond!
