Today’s wedding stationer interview is with La Toya of Soirée Custom Paper & Co., based in Arlington, Virginia! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

While searching for my own wedding invitations in 2009 I just couldn’t find anything that I felt suited us.  So I decided to design them myself – it helped having a background in interior design and a basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator.  After finishing them and mailing them out – I started receiving requests from friends to design wedding and social invitations and stationery for them and Soirée Custom Paper Co. was started.

Jodie’s bridal portrait took place at her wedding venue, Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC. The shoot featured her horse, Lucy, and her dog, Sasha.

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Kelly Newell of Serradella, Northern Michigan’s premiere source for styling and vintage inspired rentals! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’ve had a love of history and all things vintage my whole life. I vividly remember asking my parents to tell me about the “olden days” each night at bedtime and have always been drawn to things that speak of the past. My company was born out of a desire to indulge that passion. I’ve collected things as long as I can remember and, in recent years, also discovered a natural talent for styling and staging. A vintage rental company serving the wedding industry provides the perfect place for the two to intersect.
