WEDDING STORY WRITER™  NOW ACCEPTING 2019 WEDDING STORIES We’re a couple in love redefining wedding memories for extraordinary couples worldwide since 2011.

We loved creating these custom love story velvet invitation booklets with a floral monogram embossed with gold foil on each cover. Within the booklet there is a love story, an illustration of the couple, the actual invitation, and a printed link to their website.
We placed the response cards in the back of the booklets.
The booklets were then placed into a box and hand-wrapped with white craft paper, addressed, with floral postage stamps placed on the front of the packages. Of course, we couldn’t mail them without affixing fabulous wax seal monograms.
The bride emailed us after she received her invitation in the mail and was completely over the moon happy with them!
Her June 23 (second) wedding celebration is all about florals. She is having flowers flown in from all over Europe, in shades of yellow, pink, orange, peach, and white.
This is one event I wish I could see in person, as the floral scent will be absolutely heavenly!

Look at all the pretty things! If I was going to get married again, I would totally style a shot like this one, made to highlight heirloom quality jewelry by @BekahAnneaccessories!

Congratulations to Nicole and Ian on their destination wedding day today at the Ocean View Club/The Other Side.

They had over 90 guests fly in to witness their wedding ceremony and wanted to welcome them with warmth and beauty. We decided to create custom books to serve this purpose, including a hand drawn map of the area.

The bride chose a beautiful Bonnie blue linen for half of her books. It was chosen, along with a pale pink linen, to reflect the colors of the Bahama Islands where their destination wedding takes place today!
The lone tree was drawn for the bride by artist Evan Yarbrough last year before she commissioned us. The bride wanted something unique to Dunmore on her welcome books, so I suggested using the lone tree along with a monogram we created. It looks absolutely spectacular and totally branded her wedding! ❤️👰🏻🤵🏼💍 #artist #bookarts #welcomebook #wswbooks #wswweddings #weddingstorywriter #vowbook #vowbooks #weddingstationery #monogram #calligrapher #fineartfilm #moodboard #welcomebooks #monogrameverything #monogramitall #custominvitations #weddngday #theotherside

Hey there! Friday Introduction time!
My name is Michelle McMurray de Luces and I'm the founder and creative director of Wedding Story Writer.
I started this company in 2011. As the family genealogist, I've been writing stories since youth, interviewing family, finding out why things happened the way they did. Wedding stories were always my favorites, but most of the time I heard that the former brides couldn't remember most of their wedding days anymore.
HOW SAD.
Having planned my own wedding and also not remembering the details after a time, I decided this was my calling.
It's hard work. It is very time consuming for me to write and research for my clients, but when they tell me they cried while reading their story (and they all do) because I told them something they wouldn't have known about otherwise....it brings me joy.
I'm thankful that I'm friends with so many of my former clients now, as we've grown close. I've seen some welcome children into their lives. I've cried with a former bride who lost her father to cancer. I've celebrated with a couple who built their first home, started businesses...built their lives upon a dream.

Besides stories, we, as a team, also create lovely vow books as heirloom pieces because having your daughter read her vows, years later, from the same book as you did is priceless. Yes, I'm a big ole sap.

I love my career. It's hard, but it's the path that truly brings me joy. I feel that I'm providing invaluable family history for couples to build their lives upon, helping them to strengthen their marriage and create a legacy of their lives from which future family will also build upon.

As an artist, I love doing custom work. My art teacher taught me to appreciate the beauty of details, and that advice has stuck with me all of these years.
Details matter. Don’t forget about them. My team makes sure that doesn’t happen!

Did you know that we only take on a few select custom box clients?

This photo is one I absolutely love of @ciarraclaire filling up a clients’ luxury memento box with her custom artwork.
After looking at our swatch kit, Ciarra chose a pearl outer linen and a seascape interior velvet with matte gold foil embossing.
Inside the box she places all of the beautiful custom drawings, paintings, stamps and stationery sets she creates for her clients. ***We are only taking five more custom box clients this summer, so if you are interested, we urge you to inquire soon. *** Each boxes takes 6-8 hours to completely make—by hand! There is pressing time involved, too. Please allow us 8-10 weeks for large orders.

I love when our couples leave us feedback! It’s so very heartwarming to me to see how much they love what we make them.
This bride requested a bride and groom silhouette in a neutral linen for her rustic outdoor wedding. They wrote their own wedding vows. ❤️ They also very kindly sent us a bunch of photos after their wedding, and I have to admit—I sat there feeling like my heart was going to burst as I clicked through each beautiful image of this couple in love. It’s a gift that keeps on giving for me.
I put my heart and soul into every single piece I create, so it’s extra special to receive photos of my work with my real couples! 😍😍😍 #weddingphotos #accolades #feelingthelove #customwedding #customweddinginvitation #weddinginvitations #weddingvows

Choice is everything!

We customize each book or box we make by color and choice of fabric. We allow you to choose designs from our signature collection or we can design a custom piece for you.

Our boxes are extremely well-made and solid. We build them to last—not only for your lifetime, but many lifetimes thereafter.

We allow you to choose if you want a box or not, but we always highly recommend purchasing one to keep your heirlooms safe.

Custom box sizes are available. Contact me for more information.

We’re happy to be featured on @thewhitewren today! Our dear client @ciarraclaire creates fine art invitations with her beautiful calligraphy and drawing skills—so she came to us to create custom fine art presentation boxes! Her brand colors are beautiful. I love seeing these boxes in use and know her clients will treasure the box and contents for a lifetime.

Congratulations to the team for being published!

I love creating custom artwork for my clients! Here are two custom minis for a fabulous couple from Florida. The groom’s book is earth linen, while the bride’s vow book is white. I drew both covers for them as part of their wedding stationery package, incorporating it throughout their entire wedding design.
Inside the books are eight pages blank paper for them to pen their vows.

Flashback to Paris, France, spring 2017 and the “umpteen” custom lavender linen travel journal books we made for the @fluttermag tour! How we wish we could have joined in the festivities!

I love this flatlay of all the goodies the guests enjoyed from their hosts.

Beach vibes!

We made two mini vow booklets for a couple having a destination wedding—on a beach!

I think these colors were the perfect choice, and I paired them with light blue silk ribbons for each booklet, holding in their hand written vows.

Kind of makes me want a beach vacation! With @Honeybook, I can work remotely with only my cell phone as my client inquiries come straight through their app.
Bring on the beach!

Custom branded cards using gold foil are perfect for thank you notes or for jotting down any sweet words to send your friends and family.
I loved designing this whimsical crest for my client!

Do you see that little metal block? That is a type of die that we use to foil thank you cards, books and paper. We also have several antique hand tools that we use for books.
