The packaging was elegant; the paper sturdy & the personal note from the creator touching.

Custom Luminary Maker
I started creating my Luminaries back in 2010 when I came up with the idea for my own music themed wedding! That is how it all began. Now I create them for other brides and I am honored to do so! I am formally trained as a sculptor. Professionally I work as an Art Therapist in an inpatient psychiatric facility, and I spend my days encouraging people to express themselves through the arts.
I specialize in custom wedding, party and event orders. My luminary bags are professional and seamless. I create them with lots of care and attention to detail. They are fashioned from scratch one at a time with original vintage papers! I create luminaries out of a variety of papers with a variety of cutout shapes. I use children's storybooks, maps, travel books, blueprints, dictionaries, hand marbled paper, yearbooks, vintage recipes, vintage book pages, sheet music and more! My work has been featured on these amazing sites...Emmalinebride.com, Bookriot.com, Wedeclectic.com, Rocknrollbride.com, Kristinrogersphotography.com

All of my luminaries only have cutouts on the front side of the bags. This is how luminaries are traditionally made because they illuminate better this way. When cutout on both sides they do not illuminate as well and you can see though to the other side. Visually, I do not like the look so I only do my cutouts on the front.
