Hi there!

I'm Kathy, your wedding invitation designer and stationer
here at Sugar Pear Design.

Wedding Invitation Designer Sugar Pear Design Kathy Marcelle

nice to meet you!

During my years working in product development and consumer research for renowned brands like Kraft Foods and Mattel, I learned to listen to what our customers wanted and design packaging and marketing material that caught the eye. Today, I bring that same exploration and creativity to your stationery design, ensuring you receive something even better than you envision.

There’s a reason I’ve been awarded Wisconsin Bride Magazine’s Best of Invitations multiple years and featured at Martha Stewart’s Wedding Party and in top wedding blogs such as Condé Nast BRIDES, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Magnolia Rouge, and Wedding Chicks. Unique and meaningful elements inspire my creative work. As I see it, these details — from first impression to the wedding day — should instantly WOW your guests.

Combining my graphic design degree, and 17+ years in the wedding industry, I bring expertise and experience to the table. With firsthand knowledge of various printing and production methods, you receive only the best when working with me. Whether a personal story or an intentional motif weaved throughout, you can trust that every detail is custom designed for your once-in-a-lifetime day.
