What is your name?
What do you do? I design wedding invitations and day-of stationery for weddings with personality.
What’s the name of your business?
How did you come up with the name?
I wish this were a better story, but 111 (Oneleven) is my address. So I suppose I can never move!
What makes your business unique?
I think my interaction with clients makes Oneleven Wedding unique. I know that each wedding is special, and I put as much energy into creating an amazing product for each client, as I would for my own wedding. I try to strike a balance between being casual and friendly, but still professional. I think that allows my clients to feel comfortable with me, but also put their trust in my expertise. Oh, and, there are few other designers in Lancaster focusing on creating modern invitations that are accessible for couples at a variety of price points.
I love your logo, what was your inspiration?
When I was designing my logo, I wanted to incorporate my contemporary design aesthetic, but also capture the romance surrounding weddings. So, by mixing a strong modern font with an italicized serif font, I think I accomplished that. I’m completely obsessed with grays paired with a muted pastel, so the charcoal and lavender color combination was a no-brainer.
What do you do for fun?
Oooh good question. Does work count? Since my work is so fun, I spend a lot of time in my studio creating and experimenting. But outside of the office, I love spending time with my awesome husband, working on our Lancaster City home, reading books and blogs, and drinking coffee at any time of day.
Where do you see yourself in the next 3 years?
I’m always focused a few steps ahead, so this is an easy question to answer. In three years I will hopefully have my own studio and retail space in Downtown Lancaster. A long-term goal of mine is to get my invitations in boutique stores, so brides all over the country can purchase my invitations and have a chance to see them in person.
Any last words?
Ole, you rock. Thanks for featuring me on your blog and for being a friend! Also, one last word for brides and grooms, your wedding is special and don’t let any vender try to fit you into their mold. Don’t settle for average, because your love is anything but ordinary!
