IT'S SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY!
Being in the wedding industry, connections and word of mouth can sometimes make the difference between a bride booking with you or not! After meeting so many incredible vendors over the last year, I thought it would be super fun to start a new series - Spotlight Saturday. This series will be posted once a week, and will highlight one local small business, creative, or vendor each time! For the months of September and October, each Spotlight will be wedding themed! My hope is to bring networking opportunities and connections to other small creatives in the industry, aligning them with their ideal clients, and filling up their weekends with lots of authentic memories!
Q: Tell me your story! When were you established and how did you get to where you are now?
A: CMDesigns came to be in 2016, but I've actually been in the industry my whole life. I grew up helping my parents at events for their rental company, and then when I turned 15, I started to help my mom as an event coordinator when she had events. In 2016, I decided it was time to branch out on my own, and that's when CMDesigns came to be. I knew design was something important to me, so I decided to base my business services and name off of my love for design. I started off by helping brides with designing their invitations and designing weddings for my parents rental company. When I started CMDesigns, I was proud of the years of experience I had, and was so excited to help brides make their day both beautiful and magical.
Q: What services do you offer? Is all of your work custom?
A: I offer completely custom wedding invitations and stationery. I also offer wedding design, month of coordination, and wedding planning. I love all things design, so I include wedding design in every coordination/ planning package I offer!
Q: Do you have a favorite piece that you enjoy designing the most?
A: I love designing the sweetheart table! It's one of my favorite parts of the weddings! You can make it detailed and unique, and eye catching with a beautiful backdrop!
I love to design custom invitation design elements and make them even more unique with beautiful font choices.
Q: Would you say you specialize in a specific style/theme?
A: I love designing with beautiful, extravagant florals and romantic candlelight! My favorite style is a romantic and elegant feel!
Q: Walk me through your typical process for designing an invitation suite!
A: We start off by working together to create a mood/ inspiration board. This board includes designs they like, and other pictures that show off their wedding style and personalities. We then schedule to meet, and I ask them a few questions about their needs, the wording, and make sure we are on the same page in regards to design. I design 1-2 completely custom designs for them to choose from along with a questionnaire for them to send me any corrections. We finalize the design and then we meet to review a printed proof!
