You dream it, I design it!
Weddings are all about YOUR perfect day. A day that you have an excuse to splurge a little bit and incorporate things that you would not normally do in everyday life.
Large extravagant flower arrangements, gorgeous ballroom, invitations that capture it all. You know the type of event you only see in magazines.
My favorite part of any wedding is the look on a bride’s face when she walks into her room for the first time and sees all of her ideas come to life and to physically see the end result of all the planning and dreaming.
I am here to help pull out your big ideas and what type of story you want to tell for your big day and be able to put those ideas on paper,
I am a Designer at heart and in mind. I went to school to be an Engineer, but discovered that was not where my passion was. I knew I wanted to create, but I just didn't know what it was. I started taking design classes and discovered that not only did I really enjoy going to class but I was actually pretty good. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts - specializing in Graphic Design. After college, I struggled to find a job so I bartended to pay the bills. I had a few co-workers that wanted me to make baby shower invitations. A few invites here and there turned into Wedding Invitations and more people were asking me to design for them. Thats when I decided to start HSRGraphics. I came up with a name, created some business cards and booked a booth at local Bridal Show.
This is where I met an Event Planner that loved my work and wanted me to work exclusively with them and create all of their Wedding Invitations for their clients. Thus began my journey with Èlan Event Planning & Design. During my years with Èlan, I put HSRGraphics on hold because I didn't know the first thing about running a business and I just wanted to design and thats exactly what I got to do. The time came when it was time to get back to HSRGraphics and build my business. I took some classes, created a website and here we are today!
Aiden is two and a half and he is my entire world. He grows up more and more each day and I am so lucky this little boy gets to call me mommy. His little Aiden snuggles are the absolute best and my heart melts every time he says "Thank you mommy" - yes we taught him manners LOL
Nick is my other half and I couldn't imagine going through this crazy life without him. Watching him with Aiden makes me fall more in love with him everyday. Not only is he a supportive husband of me and all my dreams, but he is the best daddy and little boy could ask for!
How can I help?
This company is no one woman band! It takes a village and I couldn't to any of this without MY village. From the watercolor artist, illustrators and calligraphers to the photographers that capture it all. I am forever grateful to have these people in my life.
