Hey! It's me, Alyssa. You may know me as 'the girl with the big white dog' or 'the paper nerd', and honestly, neither of those are wrong. When I’m not designing wedding invitations, you can find me either sippin’ an IPA in the backyard, hiking a local trail with my big white dog named Winston (Yes, of course he has an instagram), or reading a good book. Some would consider me an introverted extrovert. My ideal Friday night is staying in, cooking dinner with a small group of friends, and playing an intense game of Apples to Apples. My ideal Saturday night? Designing your wedding invitations.
Enough about me. Let's talk about you. Do you remember the first time you caught the eye of your soon-to-be forever partner? The excitement of the first date, the first kiss, the first ‘I love you’? That feeling in your stomach when you realized this wonderful, messy, crazy life had led you to finding the one? My mission is to infuse that fire feeling, that simplistic joy, onto a beautiful sustainable piece of paper. When your guests hold your forever keepsake, they will feel the thoughtfulness, personality, and heartfelt design capturing not only your special day, but the moments leading up. When you hold your forever keepsake, it becomes an heirloom. An opportunity to re-live your wedding day, over and over again. Because no love story is the same, I take pride in serving a work of art that captures each genuine love, all while delivering a delicate invitation suite that supports the well-being of our earth.
“To say everything was beautiful is an understatement. Alyssa’s creativity and talent are unmatchable. She made coordinating all the details and choosing the paper we wanted super easy and effortless (which is exactly what you need during the stress of wedding planning). She was also super patient when I wanted to make any edits. I would absolutely recommend her for the bride and groom who want timeless design you can look back on and cherish forever.”
"Alyssa with Lavena Creative Co. was an absolute dream to work with. From the very beginning, she always made sure I received exactly what I envisioned for my wedding invitations. She was very prompt with sending information and returning emails all while doing such a beautiful job. Her creations are like nobody else's I have seen before. She puts so much of her heart into providing brides exactly what they dream of. Not only does she design gorgeous wedding invitations, she offers so much for your big day such as seating charts and ceremony programs. Truly outstanding work. HIGHLY recommend!"
"Alyssa was great and very easy to work with. Getting a late start on invitations, Alyssa was very prompt on getting the process started so we could complete them in a timely manner. She made my vision come to life within days! She went above and beyond adding her sweet personal touches to our invitation suite and ceremony programs. I have received countless compliments on our beautiful invitations! Alyssa was also eager to assist with a change the date after having to postpone our day. I would recommend Lavena Creative Co. to anyone looking for simply beautiful wedding stationery."
