"It's been awhile since we ordered our invitations from you. We've since received them, assembled them, and mailed them all out. Our potential guests have been giving us a lot of compliments on how lovely and unique they are.

I'm in love with my wedding invitations! They go perfectly with the theme of my wedding. Vanessa was easy to work with and helped me through my indecisiveness regarding the colors of the pocketfold and the birds. She also provided extra envelopes which was great because I made some mistakes as I was writing out my invitations. I was a bit skeptical having to order them without seeing it first but they came out beautiful! I've gotten so many compliments on my invitations. I even have people who has stated they were bummed they had to mail back my rsvp cards because they wanted to keep it. My biggest advice is to spend the extra to have the envelopes addressed to and from.

About

VO Handmade: A Timeline

2017
In 2017 VO Handmade celebrates the 8th year anniversary of doing business on Etsy!

2011-2016
Hello Australia, England, Denmark, Canada, Mexico, and many countries around the world! VO has experienced overwhelming international success, and has consciously decided to stay 'small.' I now take a limited number of orders to allow the time and attention that every project deserves.

2010
Moved to Seattle and decided to turn the small business into a full time dream job creating unique luxury invitations. Pinch me!
In the winter of this year Gwyneth Paltrow featured VO Handmade recipe cards in her holiday newsletter GOOP.

2009
I started exploring, creating, and eventually selling on Etsy. Sooner or later I started to take my work more seriously, and VO Handmade was born. V and O are, of course, my initials.

2010-2005
I worked as an interior designer for TLCD Architecture in Northern California. They are a highly talented and extremely nice group of people. I learned an incredible amount and spread my wings as a designer.

2005
My husband Eric and I got married in the center of five redwoods. Made my own invitations...

2005-2001
Earned a Bachelors of Interior Architecture at U.of Oregon which is an amazingly creative and challenging program.
While at the University I worked as a graphic designer at the Yamada Language Center.

2000 and earlier
Somewhere in here I met my hubby, learned how to make one hell of a cherry pie, skinned knees with my three brothers, and felt like every day was art class.
