The more weddings I photograph, the more I fall in love with professional custom wedding stationery. Custom wedding stationery is the unsung hero of a wedding. When designed beautifully, the stationery can tie every piece of a bride’s wedding theme together.
Custom wedding stationery is also the first tangible item your guests are going to see and feel of your wedding day. Whether you send out save-the-dates, or skip those and only send the formal wedding invitations, your guests will have an idea of what to expect from your wedding. Will it be a bit rustic? Elegant romance? Black tie affair? Your invitations will set the stage for one spectacular day!
Here chatting about her business, Lovely Somethings, is Liz. I first met Liz at the Spring Beloved Bridal Boutique at the Piggery in Barberton. Her work immediately amazed me. She takes such great care to make sure details are paid attention to. The magic she works on custom wedding stationery for her Brides is truly something that you need to see in person!
If you’re looking for someone to design custom wedding stationery for you, look no further than Liz!!

Describe the PERFECT wedding
I was thinking of my favorite current trends, but I keep going back to my own. Teeny bridal party, big dress for me, black tux for him, on the lawn behind the Tudor House, with a huge tent. it was elegant but playful, BBQ and Michael Jackson, with dancing all night long. Just remember to enjoy it all, I didn’t care that it rained until 5 minutes before the ceremony, and then most of the night, or the fact it was a million degrees under the tent…it was fun!
What’s the importance of your profession? Why should a Bride hire a professional in your service?
There is nothing that replaces being able to see and feel the different paper, and working one on one with someone makes all the difference. AND especially important is my ability to translate your monogram/design/everything from your invitation to your seating chart to your cocktail napkin to the lighting to the thank you bags to the…everything!
