jenni + michael's wedding

I met Jenni 8 years ago during college as members of the recruitment team for fall rush. She was one of the most genuine and sweetest people I met during my 4 years at UND. When Jenni + Michael got engaged, Jenni took to Pinterest with many ideas for her wedding where we re-connected. I met with Jenni, then with Jenni + Michael and the rest is history!


I really enjoyed working with Jenni + Michael on their wedding. They knew what they wanted, but were also open to letting me add my little touches to their special day. The little "squiggle" as Jenni affectionately called it became the centerpiece of the design for all of their print related items for their wine themed wedding. The bordeaux and grey complimented eachother very nicely and turned out magnificently on the letterpress invitations.

The Thank You card {not pictured} and Guest Book sign turned out to be my favorite print items of the wedding. Taking the important words - love, tradition and home - and highlighting them in bordeaux and the script font is what set these two pieces apart for me.

To Jenni + Michael: It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Thank you for taking a chance with me on the most important day of your life. I wish you nothing but the best in the future - many years of happiness lie before you, enjoy it!

PS... We had a small world moment early on. Michael's aunt, Garin, is the woman who inspired my name. My dad worked for her mother {Michael's grandmother} many years ago and really liked the name and here I am twenty-something years later.


mykel + kristen's wedding gift

As you can imagine, the University and Fighting Irish is a source of great pride for Notre Dame grads. The ability to get married at the Basilica is something most alumni want to experience {or so I've heard}. My brother, Jamie, and Mykel went to Notre Dame and lived together in Dillon Hall.

My mom commissioned me to create a gift for the Kramer's to bring with her to South Bend.  To capture the Notre Dame-ness of the couple in this print, I changed the hearts in the date to clover leafs - a symbol closely associated with the University.


brad + casie's wedding gift

I was delighted to be invited to Brad + Casie's wedding last Friday at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus.

While I was looking for a wedding gift for these two very special people in my life, a picture from my 28th birthday party in April kept popping into my head.

It was pouring rain as we left the bar and Brad + Casie ran back to their car sans jackets or umbrellas. They took the CUTEST self photo and posted it to Instagram. To me, this picture captured their love and personalities perfectly.

I wanted to find a way to include this picture in their wedding gift. As I was looking for the photo on Facebook, I came across so many other wonderful pictures of these two and decided immediately to put together a custom framed poster.


Brad + Casie: I love you both so much and was honored to be a part of your special day. I can't wait to see what's in store for you and watch your love continue to grow. xoxo


keri + ryan stanzel wedding

Being a part of Keri + Ryan's wedding was very special to me. Having Keri as my manager and good friend, I was able to see their relationship grow from friendship to the 'unofficial' first date and 'official' first date to their engagement and wedding.

Our company encouraged us to participate in a mentoring program at Horace Mann Elementary School in St. Paul which is how Keri + Ryan got to know each other, playing board games with their buddies and where they ultimately exchanged vows and had their reception.

The wedding was on Thursday, December 10, 2009 in the School Library. A perfect setting for a small, intimate wedding with many personal touches that exemplified their love and the history of their relationship.

It was all about the details for Keri + Ryan's wedding {no surprise here, if you know Keri}.

I took the lead on most of the creative pieces: ceremony programs {with the help of students}, hot chocolate bar, custom water bottle labels, guest book, wreaths, twinkle lights and tulle decoration.
