About Maidenwood Press

If you're wondering how I got started, well I guess I'd have to give some credit to my eight years in non-profit management. When you work in non-profits, resources can be slim and you might find yourself wearing many hats. I learned everything about running a business from how to write grants and budgets, to setting up activities for summer campers. I'm very fortunate to be naturally versatile and moved through many positions, but my favorite of all was marketing. I loved creating print material and advertisements and getting to use my design skills to make things come to life.

Not only am I creative by nature, but I am also helpful, and so I stepped up to help out every friend and relative for their wedding, until one day a planner asked me if I did this for a living. When I told her that I didn't she replied "well, you should!", and that was that. I realized that I had all the knowledge I needed to run a business and the skills to help people express their love and joy for their families and each other. And so began Maidenwood Press, which continues to evolve and grow as if it were it's own organic being.

It is with the great love and support of my husband and family that I was able to make the transition to self-employment, and to the wonderful community of other wedding businesses on Martha's Vineyard that embraced me. And, of course, to all of my wonderful clients who have trusted me and who have been so positive and kind. I am so blessed to live each day filled with love and gratitude.
