Ink Sugar is a boutique wedding stationery company that offers many services including custom wedding invitations, natural hand dyed silk ribbons, brand styling and business branding.
I started out my business as a small Etsy shop in 2015 by selling bridal and baby shower invitations as a hobby while in college. Upon graduating with a degree in Apparel Merchandising from Auburn University, I thought my dream job included a buyers position at a large department store, but after many experiences in that field, I knew it wasn't something I wanted to do. Luckily an amazing internship with a wedding planner came my way and I never looked back from this amazing industry. I knew I wanted to use my creative ability to bring joy to others in something that will be cherished for a lifetime. From there, I grew my business by working with another amazing planner and I finally took the leap of faith to start my own. Each design I create has so much love poured into each one for my clients and the final product is always sweet as sugar! Feel to contact me, Katie Miller, Owner and Creative Director of Ink Sugar Co.

From design to production each book is made by hand and finished to perfection. RedBerry was created by a dynamic duo in 2014, both of them are hands-on kinds of guys and love working with wood.Their father worked in a photo studio when they were growing up which is what inspired them to create personalized photo albums that were made of wood. This eventually evolved into the wedding guest books/keepsake albums that they offer today. Now, with a marital union, RedBerry Guest Book has a "woman's touch" and it makes all the difference. With their guestbooks, RedBerry aims to create designs that are timeless, something that will be elegant for a couple's wedding day, but will also mesh with the relaxed feel of their home decor to display after the event. Family is really the core of the values and the efforts that they put into what is done every day.

What is your inspiration when you create your invitation suite? I love incorporating texture, art, and stories into each invitation suite. For each of our custom suites, we always take the time to talk with brides about their florals, venue, and the feel of their wedding day and then design their invitation options based on that specific bride’s vision and style. My design partner, Sherri Arias, creates all of the detailed artwork and/or watercolors for each suite and her artwork always goes above and beyond to inspire the designs!
Do you offer custom, semi-custom, or ready made invitation suites? Yes, I have a semi-custom line of pre-designed wedding paper and it’s such a joy to offer fully custom suites to our clients. I also am in the process of launching a brand new line called "The Classic Collection," which is somewhere in between a semi-custom and custom suite.
How long have you been designing and creating wedding stationery? My first taste of designing wedding stationery was for my own wedding (over 4 years ago now!) when I designed our save the dates and wedding programs. While I really enjoyed the process, I didn’t start making it a career until I fell in love with the art of calligraphy and began to design invitations for friends in 2014. Once I started teaming up with Sherri, we have had way too much fun collaborating on suites and never looked back!
What do you feel is important for a client to know when deciding what wedding invitation best fit their wedding vision? First, it’s never too early to book your designer (especially if you’re interested in the custom process). Wedding paper is one of your only tangible keepsakes from your big day, and we don’t want you to be stressed or settle for an invitation by waiting until the last minute. Second, don’t be afraid to get creative! Want us to design envelope liners, a custom wax seal, a map of the city, a watercolor wedding logo or portrait with your pups? We love sweet touches of detail and will track down that perfect-shade of handmade ribbon because we so enjoy bringing your vision to life.
