I am thrilled to be working with the lovely Dating Divas, and most of all, to be designing for all of you wonderful readers! I stumbled across date your one website right after coming home from my honeymoon – and I fell in love (again)! The best part about teaming up with the Divas is I can use the printables I design on my OWN dates! So fun! :)

I am an AZ gal who loves photography, reading, traveling and drive-in movies. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s in Communications: Design Track, and am a full-time graphic designer at Bennett Communications, a publishing company that produces over 12 mastheads a year! I’m mostly a girly-girl at heart, which means it is no surprise that my favorite magazine to dream and design for is our annual Utah Valley Bride. And since this is for date your one, my ideal date includes any and all surprises – I love ‘em! Luckily, my husband is great at keeping me on my toes :)

I have been married for almost two years to my best friend, Kyle. I say best friend because that is our love story! We met in college, began having weekly lunches and truly became best friends, sharing everything from dating escapades to job woes. We continued those lunches for two years, but it wasn’t until he moved cross-country that we realized we couldn’t live without each other! :)

This is one of our engagement photos and yes, my husband is a professional breakdancer!

Since designing my own invitation suite, I can’t seem to stop! I love working with brides and designing a custom look that is unique to each wedding. One of my favorite invitations was the Vera Wang-inspired flower design. The custom flower sketch was specific to the bride and I love the vintage, romantic feel of the suite. Another favorite of mine is the “Kate and Steve” invitation suite. The invitation is modern and bold, with the strong typeface and white space, contrasted with the whimsical “Kate” and romantic color scheme.

Besides all things wedding, I design logos, business cards, party invitations, brochures and just about anything you can think of! I love sitting down with each client and collaborating to create the perfect piece. There is nothing better than a client coming back and saying, “I have gotten SO many compliments on this piece!”

In my own invitation suite, I included our “love story” as a special piece. Our guests loved getting to know us as a couple better, and it was such a fun component to our wedding! We still cherish this story, because it is timeless to us and will never change :) As a married couple, many of you can look back and remember your “love story” – where you met, how you met, who said “I love you” first :) I’m sure that story is near & dear to your heart – I know mine is! I love looking back and remembering how my sweetheart and I finally became husband and wife!

And because these stories are so wonderful, today I would LOVE to offer one lucky Dating Divas reader their OWN “Love Story” print! I will work with you to design a beautiful story can be printed and framed in your own home. I will customize fonts, colors and other design elements to create a piece that is completely unique to you and your spouse! The giveaway includes:

  • One custom “Love Story” design, unique to the winner
  • One 11×17 print, shipped to the winner


To enter, head on over to my website to THIS POST & leave me a comment telling me your “love story!”  I’m so excited to hear all of your different stories! Giveaway will end next Thursday, on March 22nd at 12:00 MST.  I will announce the winner on Saturday, March 24th!

Isn’t that Love Story design to DIE FOR!?!?  When I saw it, I fell in love and I definitely want one for myself!  So…what are you waiting for?  Head on over to her website to leave a comment and enter this AMAZING giveaway!!
