Hi there!

I’ve been helping brides navigate their paperie needs for their wedding for 20 years. Which means I’ve answered approximately 1,000,0000 questions providing 60,000 possibilities and helped more than 7,000 brides.

That’s a LOT of weddings and I still love it!

I started Simply Personal in 2005 when people were still afraid of putting color on wedding invitations. A LOT has transformed over the last 13 years and I’d like to think I was apart of this MASSIVE movement. I believed that your wedding invitation should be a reflection of your personality and your event. Your invitation sets the tone to your big day and I am so grateful for my early on clients that trusted me with with their vision. Since 2005 I have helped thousands of brides, become a design resource to planners nationwide and now I am so excited to launch our first ever e-commerce design website in 2018. With this tool we will be able to bring our approach, style and quality invitations to thousands more!

I’m a 2000 Baylor grad with a bachelor's degree in Fine Art with a weird-engineering-logistic craving mind. I’m deeply motivated, hard core entrepreneur, extremely focused and a retired event and wedding planner. Ask me nicely and I MIGHT plan your event. ;)

Things I love.
Complicated projects. My dog Macie. My children, Ashtyn and Langston and my sweet husband Chase. I love quiet mornings and home dance parties. I love spring and summer and tank tops. I love coffee and making magic happen. I love doing laundry too.

My entire team consists of design enthusiasts, printing freaks and assembly robots. (Not really robots but they LOVE repetition and quality control so they are kind of like robots.)
