Hi there! I'm Brenna, the owner and artist behind BC Design Studio.

When I meet with couples, they are always curious how I started designing invitations.  After creating the invitations and stationery for my own wedding in 2004, I began designing for friends and family. Word of mouth spread and after a few years I was able to leave my day job and focus on creating art and design full time.

Bespoke invitation design has been the main focus of my business for the past 10 years. I love to incorporate my original artwork into the invitations through hand-painted motifs, hand-drawn images, and custom logos or icons to create something unique for each client.

My design studio is based in the Monterey Bay area of California, where I live with my husband Jon and daughter Sienna. With a little help from my friends (the internet and Fed Ex) I am fortunate to work with couples around the world to make their wedding stationery vision a reality!

I would love to work with you to create your invitations. Not quite sure what you are looking for? Contact me and tell me all about your wedding plans, and we'll brainstorm together!
