I’m so excited to have been chosen as the invitation designer for this year’s luxury bridal showcase at The US Grant Hotel in San Diego. The US Grant is such a gorgeous historical hotel that exudes elegance and I can’t wait to design a wedding under their 100 year old roof! With the best and brightest in the wedding industry showcasing their interpretation of ‘royal’ this is definitely a must-attend for all brides-to-be in Southern California.

This year the theme was ‘A Royal Affair’ as a nod to the royal wedding of Prince Williams. With that as inspiration to draw off of I created a a cornflower blue and royal purple invitation featuring an abstract peacock pattern and a Moroccan shaped frame around a vintage crown. For an updated look we created a modern trellis pattern in the same palette for a fun surprise on the back of the invitation card. We then letterpressed this design onto a double thick 100% cotton paper for a super luxurious and tactile feel.

    I feel “Royal” when I am able to go out for a night on the town, dressed to the 9′s, starting with long flowing locks, the perfect little black dress, shoes that make my legs look long and toned, and the perfect accessories to finish the look!
