Real Wedding: Erica and Barkley's Wedding by Magnolia Photography (7)

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Jana of Magnolia Photography, based in Winterville, North Carolina! Here’s what Jana has to say about the wedding:

Erica and Barkley were married on a gorgeous April day at the Brooklyn Arts Center at St Andrews in Wilmington NC. There were so many fun aspects to their day that made it pass by so quickly. Erica rented the Brittish Taxi a traditional Wilmington favorite to take her and the girls to their favorite local bar before the wedding while Barkley and the guys enjoyed the water front.

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: MLShaughnessy Designs, LLC

Today’s stationer interview is with Meghan of MLShaugnessy Designs, based in North Brunswick, NJ! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

In grammar school I was lucky enough to have a pen pal. (Remember those, long before social media?) There was just something special about not only receiving a little note in the mail, but to go to the store and purchase pretty stationery. I could spend hours browsing boutiques just analyzing the detailed components (i.e. typefaces, design, paper types, etc.) of various notecards. It just made me overly excited to arrive home with my new paper and sit down with a pen in hand and just write. I might not have realized it then, but I always had a love of all things paper. It just wasn’t until after I designed my wedding day stationery that I grew passionate about design. Following my big day, close friends inquired about my work and it wasn’t long before word spread. Since then, I have been honored to work one-on-one with some of the sweetest engaged couples and clients celebrating weddings and various special occasions. I not only love creating one-of-a-kind [bespoke] stationery that will leave guests anticipating each special event, but I cherish the relationships I make with each of my clients that truly forms that MLShaughnessy Designs family.
