Traditionally, the bride wears on her wedding day something blue, something new, something old and something borrowed. We like to think that your custom-made invitations represent your 'Something Personal'. Through your choice of colors, paper and embellishments, you tell your story.
This is where the magic happens. All our pieces are imagined, personalized and assembled in our Parisian creative studio. Surrounded by piles of paper and pastel-colored ribbons, I imagine modern stationery collections that can be modulated to match the personality of each couple that I have the pleasure of accompanying.
Nothing replaces the feeling you get when you discover a mail synonymous with a happy event in the mailbox. I hope that your guests recognize your style before opening the envelope. One of the things I love most about being a wedding stationery designer is to read your stories, and to get to know you through anecdotes of you and your better half that you share with me.
Hello, I'm so glad to welcome you in our little studio! My name is Elena and I live with my fiancé Grégory in the pretty 12th arrondissement of Paris. Passionate about craftsmanship and graduated from a fashion design school, I have always been in love with paper and fine materials. My first internship was actually at a bridal dress atelier, and my specialty at ESMOD was lace.
I draw inspiration from my collection of Fashion and Design History books, paying special attention to delicate finishes. As I felt my heart beat louder when looking at fashion magazine clippings that my parents were putting aside for me as I grew up, I quickly realized that I wanted to pursue a path of passion where my hands could express creativity.
Two Made One
The name of our brand is inspired by Plato's myth about soul mates. In the Symposium, Aristophanes explains that once, humans were composed of two beings forming only one, with two faces, four arms and four legs. They traveled the earth and the heavens, living happily with their perfect half. But in their absolute happiness, men forgot to honor the gods of Olympus — leading Zeus to separate these complete human beings and condemn them to come to world alone without their better half. Since then, humans would spend their lives searching for their soul mates to once again become one.
... And if you are here, chances are you've met with your soulmate again.
