Why Blush and Blue Designs?

Hey, Blush and Blue Designs, what makes you unique? Friend, I'm so glad you asked, because the short answer is actually very simple. What makes our design process unique, is you of course!

We focus every detail of your custom wedding invitation design on you and your partner - the fun story of your love, your unique personalities, favorite activities and hobbies you do together, and any other quirks or details that make you, well, you! 

There's no templates or pre-designed art work to choose from, (this is where our bespoke offerings come in) we build you a gorgeous invitation suite from the ground up that you will love and cherish for your lifetime together.  Want a custom portrait of your dog, how about the intricate lace details from your wedding dress, or your favorite tie pattern, or even that gorgeous chandelier from your venue?

I can help you craft and design the perfect wedding invitation that captures everything that is unique and special about your big day. And your guests wont be able to stop gushing over the gorgeous invitations they received from you! Want to learn more about my custom wedding invitation design process? I would be happy to go over a design timeline and custom quote just for you!

I've got your back, trust me!

My goal in business is to help my clients feel at ease during this process. You should feel like you can sit back and trust Blush and Blue Designs to take care of everything (everything paper related that is!). I know wedding planning can be terribly stressful, but it can also be a lot of fun!

Meet Maria

Hello and welcome, friend!

My name is Maria, and I'm the blue-eyed, coffee-addicted sweet tooth behind Blush & Blue Designs. I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, but relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2016 in pursuit of warmer winters. I have a passion for good design, typography and making messes. When I’m not shopping for new paints and paper, I’m hiking through muddy trails with my pup, Tilda and my husband, Ryan, or contorting myself into interesting shapes during aerial silks classes.

Blush and Blue Designs is a private studio in my home where I create all the custom artwork and calligraphy for my sweet clients. From wedding invitations and event stationery materials, to branding for creatives and my own line of custom gifts and products I focus on bringing my clients' visions to life.

At Blush and Blue Designs my main priorities are: 

  • Supply each of my clients with outstanding customer service.

  • Produce beautiful one-of-a-kind art work that encapsulates your event or brand perfectly.

  • Provide detail oriented service to every project that enters my studio, from the moment you contact me from the second your project leaves the printer. No matter how big or small the project, each receives my quality care and attention.
