I'm Crissie, owner of Crissie Vitale Creative. This whole production got started while I was planning my own wedding. I've always had an obsession with pretty paper products (my notebook collection is out of control), and I have a distinct memory from childhood of receiving a whimsical invitation to a cousin's wedding - it was different and special and incorporated details that highlighted them as a couple - I loved it and thought all invites should evoke that kind of feeling. 

But when it came time to plan my own invitations, I couldn't find anything comparable. I was overwhelmed with generic options that felt too cookie-cutter and not at all like us. So I decided to apply my love of design and watercolors to the invitation world, and just to make things more fun, I took a calligraphy class as well (online from Brit & Co), needless to say - I fell in love and Crissie Vitale Creative was born. 

When I'm not painting and lettering you can find me exploring Chicago with my husband and our Pomeranian, Louis. And obsessing over the flowers I'm attempting to grow in our rooftop garden. 

If you'd like to work with me, please get in touch here. I'd love to create pretty things for you!
