Where design meets paper + tradition comes with a twist.


Helping couples express themselves in an authentic way through design + paper is my core passion. At East + West Designs, I love learning about you and your story to design wedding stationery that fits you perfectly. In a wedding world filled with countless designs and an overwhelming amount of inspiration, we'll go back to the basics and focus on what really matters—you.

I share couples' love stories through
paper + design.

what i do

Since 2016, countless engaged couples have trusted me to tell their love stories with wow-worthy design and luxurious papers that they'll cherish forever. I truly believe that your wedding is solely and completely about you and that your stationery should reflect your one-of-a-kind personality, perfectly. 

Hey, I'm Samantha—the owner and designer behind E+W who’s passionate about the power of really good design and a sucker for a great love story.

I have a BFA in graphic design from Kansas State University and I'm a four on the Enneagram scale—which makes me your typical creative who feels all the feels.

I'm happily married and live with my husband and sweet pup in the good ol' Midwest. I have a borderline unhealthy love for houseplants and if I could watch Netflix and eat McNuggets all day, I totally would without hesitation. 

East + West Designs is my dream come true and getting to know amazing couples like you is an absolute honor. Let's tell your story, together.

All love is worth celebrating + all stories are worth sharing.

i whole-heartedly believe

Everyone and every love is welcomed with open arms here at E+W. Show up completely as yourself knowing your story will be celebrated, communicated and cherished exactly the way it deserves. Because you + your love are worth it.

It's important + truly valuable to be completely yourself.


Your wedding stationery should be a mirror reflection of you and your unique story. Your personality is one-of-a-kind and is deserving of a design that is exactly that.

In being honest + kind no matter what.


Above all else, I believe in being honest + kind to everyone no matter what. 

In working hard, doing your best + giving it your all.


Nothing at East + West Designs is done half-assed. Each and every project is done with a ton of heart and even more intention. 

That trust + collaboration is the secret to great design.


I believe that being transparent and honest with others builds trust, and that trust is an important factor in collaboration. Together, we must trust each other and work together to create great design that best represents you so that you may have heirloom-worthy stationery to cherish for a lifetime.
