gracie lee + andrew



"classic chic, clean, modern with a touch of whimsy..."

Gracie Lee is a southern belle who hails from Georgia and moved to New York City for love. Her fiancee was offered a job three years ago in the big apple and together, they decided to take a leap of faith in their relationship. After 2 years in New York and 4 years of dating, Gracie Lee and Andrew took a short trip back to Georgia for a vacation with her family. With her father's permission, Andrew took the opportunity to propose to the love of his life during a romantic hot air balloon ride. How sweet? *squeal*

Gracie Lee and Andrew wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their life as it is now, in New York. I had a ball working on their invitations - Gracie was super sweet and had so many fabulous ideas. She wanted something clean and modern for the invitation design but wanted to incorporate a hot air balloon design in some way, shape or form. Ultimately she decided it took away from her clean, modern vision. Around the same time, I serendipitously found these amazing vintage hot air balloon stamps - it was kismet and voilà.

Gracie Lee and Andrew are tying the knot this New Year's Eve in style and I wish them the best. Congrats!
