Mastering the R.S.V.P (Reply cards)

I recently read an article in the New York Times about Queen Elizabeth’s Party Planner, Lady Elizabeth Anson.  For many years she has not only been the “right hand woman” to Queen Elizabeth’s elegant parties, but to many other celebrities both wild and proper.

Reflecting back on Beswoon 2016: Southwest Bohemian Inspired Room

Last summer when I first launched Lauren Rachel Design and decided to create custom wedding invitations, I had the pleasure of meeting Adrienne Horty, one of my first connections in the wedding industry.

After finding her website and investigating the cleverly named Beswoon event, I wanted to know everything I could about this unique wedding show. After meeting and speaking with Adrienne, I knew that I wanted to participate in the next Beswoon event in 2016.

A Couple's Perspective : The Grandy's Wedding Day

I had the pleasure of working with a couple from Wilmington, Delaware named Hari and Mike Grandy.  They were married on September 26, 2015 here in Maine at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport.

I originally met Hari and Mike in 2011 at my sister Carly's wedding.  They were in perfect harmony with each other and I could tell even then that their relationship was a lasting one.  It was wonderful to hear from Hari a little over a year ago when she and Mike became interested in having me help them design their wedding invitations and 

Day-Of materials.  The following is a composite of my conversations with Hari throughout and after the process.
