What do you do? We each operate independently but often collaborate and provide full service to wedding and event clients. We also host occasional events and creative workshops.
What is your aesthetic? Fortunately, the four of us have a similar aesthetic and design sensibility. We love a timeless look with vintage and personal touches. You’ll also see little pops of color and modern touches here and there — both in our work and studio..
How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? We love understated elegance with a lot of personal touches. And we think that is reflected in our work as well as studio.
Favorite part of your studio? Our meeting room! We love that we have a place to meet clients that showcases our work. And of course we love our farm table and natural sunlight!
Where do you go for inspiration? Everywhere! Magazines, textiles, blogs. We’re constantly looking around us to gather inspiration to inspire us and our clients.
Is there anything you’d upgrade to? We’re fortunate to all have growing businesses – so we wouldn’t mind a little more space!

Company: Ritzy Bee Events
What is your aesthetic? Classic & practical…with a bit of vintage & modern in the mix.
How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? The space is not too fussy/stuffy and I believe has lots of inspiring details!
Favorite part of your studio? My big zebra print chair…I didn’t want a traditional office chair. It’s more like a mini couch I can relax & work on.
Where do you go for inspiration? Wedding and design blogs.
What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? Two things…my iPhone & my GPS…don’t know what I would do without them!
Is there anything you’d upgrade to? I would love to have a shared studio/storefront space with other creative folks someday…like a photographer & invitation designer.
Anything else we should know? I have a hard time throwing away paper…especially letterpress cards…I found a solution to display them on the fun carousel display from Pottery Barn. It sits on my meeting table so everyone can seem them!
