Elizabeth Sarah Hanson

OWNER, CALLIGRAPHER, LEAD PLANNER AND DESIGNER

I picked up a pen in 2015 to flex my creative muscles, and by 2016 completed my first full set of wedding signs! I have a BA in Psychology from LeMoyne College, and have since worked in the boutique wedding planning business in DC and the luxury stationery market in Central New York. I live in the Syracuse area with my fiancé, rescue pup and two cats.

 

“I fully believe that my experience from broad event design to the specifics of stationery has set me up perfectly for owning my own business in the wedding industry. I welcome what others might call a challenge, and strive to look for places to think outside of the box. 

I live for that special moment, the one you know you're going to look back on forever and show your grandkids- what I have termed as 'Heirloom Moments'. Whether it's creating a calligraphed piece that will live in your living room after your wedding, or making sure something is set perfectly for your photographer to capture, even pulling you away for sunset shots- I am here for it! 

 

I start incorporating details in your timeline and design right from the moment we start working together, using a recipe of time, energy and love to get to know you and what your Heirloom Moments will be!"

 

Tyema Renée Stephens

LEAD PLANNER AND DESIGNER

Tyema grew up in Middletown, New York and moved to Skaneateles in her Sophomore year of college. After attending Paul Smith’s College and receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Arts and Service Management with a business minor she began her career in the restaurant industry.


She worked in a few local restaurants before deciding to trade in her Chef’s knife for a whisk. She catered weddings on a weekly basis, and that's what ignited her passion for all things wedding! 


“I believe that my experience working weddings from the catering side gives me an added edge as a wedding planner. I'm quick on my feet and work best under pressure. When others are flustered I am calm and collected."

Outside of work I enjoy cooking/baking and entertaining for friends and loved ones. I also enjoy reading, painting and drawing. I love that my career path has included all of my hobbies and passions in some form. 

My favorite part about being a wedding planner is being a tranquil source of guidance for my clients as their butterflies begin to set in. I love being there to oversee all the major and minor details of their special day so all they have to do is enjoy!"
