Every couple is unique.  Every wedding is significant.  You deserve wedding stationery that reflects who you are and what you believe in.

Dashwood is an inclusive, full-service wedding stationery studio based in Illinois. I have a passion for handmade details, believe simple is best and that the process should be fun. I create heirloom-quality wedding stationery that feels intimate yet relaxed; clean and edited, with focus on the quality of materials and combination of textures. 

I love what I do. I’m honored and excited to be a part of your big day!

Design and making has always been a part of who I am - I grew up with handy parents who encouraged my making (and are still my biggest cheerleaders!). From there, my journey includes macaroni trees and alphabet pillows, falling in love with art in 11th grade, pursuing a creative field in college, designing gardens in Chicago and hand making our own wedding invitations in 2012. That's when I knew I had to follow my paper-loving heart. Since then, my craft has been refined through experience and hard work. I get a big smile with every wedding inquiry - because I love what I do and I'm excited to be a part of your big day!

When I’m not designing, I enjoy testing out new recipes, exploring the woods with my family (Matt and Ruby!) and updating our 1890’s farmhouse. You’ll see alllll of these loves on my Instagram stories, daily. :)
