Free LGBTQ Wedding Invitations


In the wake of this election and the grotesque assault on LGBTQ rights it signifies, I am trying to think of what actions I can take to help those most vulnerable. If you are a couple who has suddenly found yourself making plans to legally marry before Obama leaves office, I would love to offer you free wedding stationery design.

I am offering any of the pre-designed, customizable suites from my Online Collection, which can all be found in the drop down menu at the top of this site, and I will customize the wording, colors and any other necessary details you need. Two rounds of revisions are included and once everything is finalized, you will receive the printable PDF files to print on your own or at your local print shop. This offer includes the customization and digital, printable files for save the dates, invitations, rsvp cards, details enclosures, return address stamps, and thank you cards, customized for free and emailed to you. I will also send you a link to the site I use to order envelopes and rubber stamps so that you can order your own at cost if desired. The custom maps take a significant amount of time and unfortunately I do not have the resources to offer those for free at this time, but you are welcome to add one at cost if you would like. 

Any gay couple who is suddenly in a rush to get married before January 20, 2017. This offer does not apply for weddings which had already been planned before the election.

To take advantage of this offer, all you need to do is email the following to me at

1. Which suite you are interested in (Vintage Type,  Brushy Geo, etc. anything from Online Collection dropdown menu above.)

2. A list of the pieces needed (Save the Date, Invitation, RSVP, Details Enclosure, Thank You, and/or Address Stamp)

3. Your wording for each of the pieces

Please be sure to include all the pieces you need in the same order so that I can help as many people as efficiently as possible. Once you place your order, and submit your wording, I will email you digital proofs within 5 business days. Two rounds of revisions are included and for each of those the turnaround time is 2 business days. I am also available by email for any questions you have ahead, during, or after you place your order and will help in any way I can.

With love, solidarity, and a deep commitment to being your ally,

Colorful Ombre Detroit Styled Shoot

I am loving these photos from our recent styled shoot collaboration! The design direction was inspired by this colorful Detroit mural and I designed a full ombre stationery suite to coordinate. This suite will be added to my online collection soon! You can see more of this shoot featured here on 100 Layer Cake.

Colorful Boho Farm Wedding

I don't even know where to start with this one. Working with Britta, Michael, Britta's mom and Luna Soiree Events was a dream. I designed an full custom invitation suite and coordinating day-of print material for M + B's laid-back, love filled wedding at Cornman Farms. Britta and Michael had an image of two hawks perched on a branch together that was special to their relationship, so I recreated it in watercolor for the centerpiece of the design, and then added a ton of colorful wildflowers, herbs, and greenery to celebrate their shared love of all things natural and free. The color palette was inspired by the bright, southwest table runners, and all the stationery pieces were tied in jute and paired with kraft envelopes for a rustic touch. For the day-of pieces, I designed a printed fabric banner with an illustrated map of the grounds (look for the tiny goat drawing!), a seating chart, place cards and table numbers. 

I think these photos speak for themselves as to how the day turned out. It looks like a total dream, and I'm so happy to have been able to contribute in my own small way to this celebration. Congratulations Britta and Michael!
