Kelsey & BILLY

upper shirley vineyards, charles city, virginia

Talk about the world’s sweetest couple to work with! When I heard who Kelsey was marrying, I knew we were in for fun, as I’d worked with Billy’s mother and sister on his sister’s wedding invitations. It is an honor when clients choose to work with me, and even more so when families come back to work with me again!

Kelsey was looking for a classic, timeless look with elements that she could carry throughout their wedding day. The hand drawn greenery detail became the theme that adorned all of their details, and my architect heart swelled when she asked if we could include a line drawing of Upper Shirley Vineyards! Printed with digital printing and gold foil stamping, this suite was polished off with inner envelopes, envelope liners, gold calligraphy and wax stamps!

Wow! I'm not quite sure where to even start, because Lauren Perry is one of my favorite people ever. Her work is impeccable, and to say the least I'm obsessed with her design work. As one can imagine, I got married during the crazy COVID-19 times which led to a few disappointments with our original wedding date and second attempt at a wedding, but it all finally came together for our third attempt at an intimate beach wedding on 6/14/2020. During all these changes, Lauren was literally the calm that I needed. She had amazing ideas on how to resend out invitations after sending out the original BEAUTIFUL invitations. We played on an idea we had for a 7/11/20 wedding and she came up with, "We picked a sweeter date." She even drew the cutest little 7/11 slurpees for the invitation! To say the least, Lauren is innovative, fun, professional, intentional and just overall one of the best people ever to work with. It was so fun to see my original wedding invitations come to life- she involves you in every step and really wants to get to know you as a person. I felt like she cared about my story and applied that into my wedding invitations. It was everything I ever wanted and more. I told Lauren at the beginning that I wanted something different, simple, elegant but true to what I envisioned for my overall wedding. She nailed it. I love Lauren so much I got her to do all the calligraphy for my wedding- she helped with calligraphy for bridesmaids gifts, personalized letters, welcome sign, wedding favor gifts, cancellation cards and so much more! I even asked her to do a personalized baby shower invitation for my sister. Not only did she make this part of the wedding process so much easier, she has become a true friend! Please reach out to her if you are considering custom wedding invitations; I promise you will not regret! I'm looking forward to using Lauren Perry Studio for future custom invitations, announcements and so much more! Thank you, Lauren! You were a true blessing and a pleasure to work with.
