Tell us about your most memorable event.
There are two:
A few years ago I was asked to design an invitation for a beautiful young bride who had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The family quickly planned her wedding, complete with a gorgeous wedding gown, reception and dancing. Following the wedding the bride lived for another 2 weeks. For me to be part of a joyful occasion, when there could have been so many tears, was a true blessing. Her wedding invitation will remain a one of a kind, as was Morgan.
In 2015 I was hired to design wedding stationery for a fabulous outdoor wedding. It was hot and sunny when suddenly, just as the reception started, the skies turned black and tornado type winds blew the entire contents of the tent out on the lawn. Rain poured for an hour drenching everything. The entire event seemed like a disaster—electricity was lost, china and crystal shattered. Even the silverware was lost in the wind. Somehow, with the help of the guests, tables and chairs were picked up, flower arrangements were gathered from the lawn. The dinner was served and the wine was great. We danced for hours like crazy people. The bride and groom will always be one of my all-time favorite couples.
