Jessica & Aaron's Malibu Wedding

We branded this entire wedding in beautiful pastel colors meant to reflect the gorgeous surroundings of Malibu. From a full invitation suite with map to can coolers and signature cocktail signage we customized everything for this celebration. Every element had a purpose meant to guild the guests and entice them as to what was to come.

Turns out Jessica and I have a little more in common! Now follow me here people, Jessica’s father is former professional golfer, Lanny Wadkins, who played in numerous British Opens in the 80’s! He played in the 1987 British Open that I attended with my brother and mom! I remember cheering on all the American and Scotish players (as I’m half Scottish, you know!) while there and having such a great time. Jessica was also there that same year cheering on her dad! While this years Open in in Northern Ireland, it is still just as beautiful as the Open Events I attended in Scotland.

One day soon we will bring our children to Scotland, hopefully during the British Open, to show them a beautiful country and my aunts and uncles that I miss so much.

Dani & Devin's Art Deco Wedding

Dani and Delvin’s Art Deco Wedding

I met Dani last year at the McKinney Bridal show with her bridesmaid and friends. We hit it off immediately, especially when she shared how fond she was of art deco. She fell in love with my “Gatsby” themed invitation suite and over the following months we worked on personalizing everything to make it something unique. We’ve become friends and I Iove her spunky personality and big heart. These photo’s she sent along are so beautiful, and made all the more stunning by how beautiful she is.

BEAUTIFUL BEACH WEDDING!

I think I spent a solid hour clicking back and forth over these amazing shots of my client’s wedding. How beautiful are these pictures? It really warms my heart when a client thinks enough of me to send pictures of their wedding day. Laura and her husband Lindsey, could not have looked happier! Photographer, Caroline Robert, of Sweet Caroline Photo, did an amazing job capturing their beautiful smiles and the amazing scenery. How beautiful do they look? She is simply gorgeous! Wow! She also sent along shots of all the custom creations I made.

I really worked to create a theme that could be carried throughout the wedding celebration. A custom color palette, monogram, and font can transform and bring order to any wedding. I look the wedding as an event that should have a true story and continuity throughout, capturing the importance of the occasion and the personality of the couple. Laura and Lindsay, nailed this wedding and their guests had an amazing time celebrating with them. Check out the wonderful vendor below that helped them pull together such an amazing wedding.

Laura met up for lunch a few weeks back in Dallas while she was in town and she couldn’t have been sweeter. She’s a successful salesperson for Roadtrippers.com, an awesome resource for planning your next trip. Check out her bio HERE. She was so complimentary and really encouraged me to utilize my talents as a designer on an additional pathway I’ve been working on. I am so thankful for her, and others like her, that have taken their time to support me. I look forward to staying in touch and supporting one another. Thank you.

Erin & Cameron — Palm Springs, CA


I wanted to share with everyone some amazing photo’s I received from a wonderful client of mine! Erin and Camerons Palm Springs wedding looked beautiful! We worked together for many months to create some amazing mid-century modern meets desert stationery — map, programs, menu’s, seating chart, napkins — that completed the entire look of the day. I love getting the opportunity to see my work in the setting it was intended. She was so amazing to work with and such a sweet person, and really enjoyed the time we had together on this project. They are a BEAUTIFUL couple and she is absolutely GORGEOUS! I am so happy that CW Designs could play a role in such an amazing day in their lives. Thanks to her Erin for sending me the shots and to the obviously talented Daniel Neal at Daniel Neal Photography for his keen eye! Erin was nice enough to send me a list of all her vendors, so check them out as well.

Emily & Alex's South Beach Wedding!

Getting engaged, and the subsequent journey to the big day is a very exciting time — a journey filled with parties, planning and the occasional headache. Many times, I am contacted soon after engagement by enthusiastic brides ready to hit the ground running planning their dream wedding. I love it when I am able to work with a client throughout their engagement because I know that when we’re done the wedding day will be the easy part. A little planning up front really goes a long way, and while I am not a wedding planner, the items I design are meant to bring cohesiveness, order and beauty to the wedding day. The perfect color palette, typeface, theme, and timing are all important aspects when it comes to having a smooth running wedding and reception. Check out what I was able to do for Alex and Emily!
