Wedding Event & Business Branding

...that's more fun (less lame)


We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area but we ship more than half of our work all over the nation. You'll find our work featured across the who's who of wedding publications. We know design details matter, and that's what we do best.



Gold Dust Design is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2014, we have focused on providing unique design and branding for weddings, events & businesses throughout the nation.



we love to help clientele that's looking to give their guests a full and fun experience with their design. Unafraid of color, unique shapes, textures and styles. No one's worried about making Aunt Joan upset with a "hell yes" RSVP or a bold pattern. She's not invited to this party anyway.

How did you get started?

I am a big believer in doing what you love for a living and while I worked in the corporate wedding world for quite some time, I knew that wasn't the place for me. I knew there was so much more we could be offering to clients that wasn't being represented or talked about in the mainstream. I wanted to see and offer  more color, more fun patterns, unique idea's, big and bold personality. I quickly found that if I wanted to offer that kind of design, I was going to have to create it myself. With that in mind I was determined to build a business that was reflective of my passion for fun and unconventional design and over 8 years, this determination has allowed me to produce work that I truly love.

What inspires you?

 I am really inspired by vintage design elements of "yesteryear." The bold patterns, the fun typography, the colors and mood... it's definitely where I draw my own style from. I think my area of expertise is in blending the retro with modern day which you can see reflective in a lot of my work. I love to work within the desert counties and create bold eclectic styles for this particular aesthetic and in the same breath, I love taking on a chic and minimal design for an editorial style wedding. I really just like to create design that hasn't been done before.

What do you love most about weddings?

Over the last 8 years I have really perfected my approach in aesthetic curation and helping clients find their vision. The hunt and research that goes into  elements or color scheme and blending it with their style is unbelievably satisfying when comes to life.  I have created hundreds of unique designs, worked a thousand different styles and am so grateful for each one. Being apart of something so personal, I'm incredibly grateful for.


"Whether it's an elopement in Tulum or a wild Palm Springs wedding...I curate designs that feel fun, unique and  with your vision as the foundation. Details are what I do best."
