Mavora art and design is a little corner of the world that’s all mine. I created my brand and my products from scratch and I get to make just about anything I want (time permitting!). My team and I work from a small home office packed with custom paper shelving made by my handy husband. We may be a small business but we really pack a punch!

How I got into weddings: I didn’t start in weddings but as I noticed there was a need on Etsy for good wedding stationery (8 years ago) I headed in that direction and taught myself the ropes. The wedding industry helped me provide for my family while my husband went back to school. For which, I am very thankful!
Best piece of advice you’d give to brides and grooms? Don’t forget your wedding favors until the last week! They are an important thank you gift that can share a lot of your personality and a lot of your love to your guests. And if you don’t have time for tie a million little bows choose an easy favor like something pre-made or something your guests make themselves – like a popcorn or candy buffet!
What is your dream travel destination? I probable won’t be traveling anytime soon but mark my words – the husband and I will see Iceland!
