    When I first connected with Lizzie, she told me about the shades of blue wedding theme she had in mind. She and Sean would be having a traditional Catholic mass for their ceremony, with a reception to follow later that evening at Lyon Oaks Banquet Center. I was confident I could help bring that vision to life through her invitations and we chatted about her options in terms of print method and embellishments to add to the overall vibe.

    Looking at what she selected for her invitations and what panned out on the big day, it’s always a treat to see the alignment. Her invitations truly created a preview of the shades of blue wedding theme she’d orchestrated. Thanks to beautiful imagery from Taylor Ingles Photography, let’s relive their day!


  • The core values of my business: The 5 Cs

    Leah E Moss Designs - the core values of my business - calligraphy quote in studio

    I recently took Ashlyn Carter’s course “Copywriting for Creatives” (which is amazing btw), and as part of the curriculum, she challenged each student to identify the core values of our business. I had never really given this idea much thought to put it down concretely on paper. Giving such a structure around what my beliefs are and how I think my company works best was a new – and an important – exercise.

    Each of my core values ended up starting with the letter “C,” giving the set of values a grouping, as my 5 Cs. I hope reading these gives you some insight into some of the “secret sauce” that makes up Leah E. Moss Designs!
