About Laura Murphy – Owner and Designer

It all started about 6 years ago when I got married. It was time to do our wedding invitations and the design I chose was very limited in customizing. I couldn’t change the colors, I couldn’t use the monogram of our initials that was throughout other pieces being used. I like everything to be uniform and this was very frustrating. I chose a standard “M” to be in the background of the invitation and just let it go. Since I was designing the favors, table cards, menu’s and over night bags adding the invitations to it was just to much, especially since I have never done one before and didn’t know where to start. So standard invitations it was. I didn’t like the experience of being so limited, so over the past 6 years I have been working on making completely custom, one-of-a-kind invitations for special events. One-of-a-kind are the key words.

The Dates of our Lives is a completely custom, unique designing studio. We work together in choosing the special design that represents you. We all have different stories and no two are the same, so why should you settle for anything less. Your wedding, your bridal shower, the birth of your children, their first birthdays are special times in your life. Which is why The Dates of our Lives will design one-of-a-kind invitations/announcements for the “BIG” dates in your life. Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you like what you see and we can work together soon. Laura
