Featured Wedding Pro: Leigh Ann with Snow in July Designs
We simply adore this lady... she's talented, she's sweet, she's funny, she's insanely creative... and she puts so much personality and heart into her work! We can't wait for you to get to know her a little better...
"Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved making cards and invitations. I would make invitations for the littlest things like “you are invited to a pizza party,” even though it was just a regular old Friday night dinner with the family! In high school I had an amazing art teacher Mrs. Fowler, who pulled me aside one day after class and told me I was doing very well. She told me to try hard and keep up the good work and that it just might lead to something bigger. I will never forget her words. I truly listened. I excelled in art through high school gaining college credits and went on to ASU to get my BFA in graphic design..."
"...After gradation, I moved to Washington DC and worked with award winning design agencies where I gained a wealth of knowledge. I also lived in Seattle, Washington where I freelanced and managed a gift store that specialized in one-of-a-kind unique cards. After being away for almost 9 years, I decided to bring my experience back to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. I connected with local event planner Elizabeth Hempfling who encouraged me to look into the booming wedding industry in the High Country. I started small with a home business designing event invitations and wedding programs. Before I knew it, things took off and business grew. I now have a studio in downtown Boone where, along with a small group of dedicated designers, we produce custom invitation suites and paper products galore!"
