Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Invitation Consultants

Today’s stationer interview is with Allison, the founder of Invitation Consultants based in Tampa, FL! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started Invitation Consultants 15 years ago on a whim. I was thinking of starting a side business, and paper seemed like something fun! When I was laid off from my marketing position, it soon turned into the full-time gig. I wish my story was something more exciting, but really the everyday is the most exciting part, not how I got here.

Real Wedding: Kelli and Andy's Wedding by Vivian Chen Photography

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Vivian of Vivian Chen Photography based in Oakland, CA! Here’s what Vivian has to say about the wedding:

Kelli and Andy’s wedding at the beautiful Villa Montalvo was full of celebration and tradition. They had a Chinese tea ceremony during their wedding vows and also had a traditional Korean ceremony before dinner. My favorite details of the day were the modern and sculptural florals that Ingela Floral Design provided!

Today’s real engagement comes to us from Kristen of Kristen Nicole Photography, based in Toledo, OH! Here’s what she has to say about the shoot:

We travelled from Toledo to spend the afternoon with Rebecca and Tyler photographing their engagement session at the Rockefeller park Greenhouse and Cleveland Cultural Gardens. Rebecca and Tyler are the sort of people that upon first meeting, made us feel like we had known them for years. They were one of the sweetest, most laid-back couples we’ve had the privilege to work with, and despite Tyler asking us repeatedly if he looked awkward (since he admitted having his photo taken felt awkward), we assured him that the photos looked great!
