MY STORY

I’M VICTORIA CARPENTER!

I’M A SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST, DESIGNER, AND STATIONER LIVING JUST OUTSIDE OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA. MOST DAYS YOU’LL FIND ME SITTING AT MY DESK (A TURQUOISE ANTIQUE TABLE THAT WE USED AT OUR WEDDING) IN SWEATPANTS, SIPPING TEA, PAINTING OR DESIGNING WHILE LISTENING TO SOMETHING ON NETFLIX THAT I’M PROBABLY SEEING FOR THE TENTH TIME. AS AN INFP AND ENNEAGRAM 2, I FEEL A LOT OF EMOTIONS AND I FEEL THEM DEEPLY. THE TOP OF THE LIST OF THINGS THAT MAKE ME CRY INCLUDES CUTE ANIMALS, PRECIOUS OLD COUPLES, INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC, AND THE OCEAN.

MY LOVE FOR WEDDINGS STARTED IN 2014.

 I WAS A SENIOR IN COLLEGE AND ENGAGED TO BEN, PLANNING A WEDDING FOR JUNE 19, 2015 WHILE PREPARING TO GRADUATE. I QUICKLY REALIZED THAT PLANNING OUR WEDDING ALLOWED ME TO BE CREATIVE WHILE ALSO CELEBRATING OUR LOVE STORY, AND THAT FELT SO SWEET TO ME. I TRIED TO INCLUDE ALL OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP AND OUR PERSONALITIES INTO OUR WEDDING, AND NOW I GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT FOR THE COUPLES I WORK WITH. IT’S STILL SO SURREAL TO ME!

MY FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS INCLUDED WRITING A LETTER TO EVERY SINGLE GUEST THAT WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE PLACE SETTINGS, GOING BAREFOOT ALMOST ALL DAY LONG, HAVING A GLUTEN-FREE FUNFETTI CAKE AND A MASHED POTATO BAR, AND HAVING MY FLOWERS WRAPPED IN A PIECE OF THE CARDIGAN I WORE ON OUR FIRST DATE.
