Hi I'm Shelby, a graphic artist who currently works from home. I do some freelancing here and there, along with designing wedding invitations and stock illustrations....and I have to say, designing wedding invitations and other stationery is by far my favorite part! It all started with my own wedding actually. I studied graphic design in college and always knew I'd love to someday design my own wedding invites. When the time came, I created so many styles that I had a hard time picking one! I loved the process of designing invitations so much that I didn't want to stop....and I've kept designing stationary ever since!
I'm currently selling my stationery designs at my online store Origami Prints.
But before I get in to all that.....here are some photos our our DIY Backyard wedding last October. It was a lot of work but definitely worth it and far more memorable and unique than your standard "hotel ballroom" kind of wedding. =P
|Dollar Store photo frames and chalkboard paint. :)|
|We used small pebbles from the yard for keeping the escort cards from blowing away.|

|A family friend helped us build a beautiful gazebo for our ceremony.|
|The side of the house made for a gorgeous blue backdrop for our photos.|
|We strung string lights and paper lanterns across the yard for added light....They really polished off the look and feel that we wanted for our wedding!|
|And at night they were stunning!|
Everyone loved the comfortable and cozy feel of having the wedding in the backyard. It was well worth the effort and by far the best day of my life!
