From time to time, I like to sit down with a vendor I enjoy referring to clients and find out how and why they came to do what they do and what inspires them. Kim Bensing, who creates amazing and unique wedding stationary is just one of those vendors. Kim, of Heirloom Occasions, gets to the heart of the bride's vision and weaves a story for the couple to present to their guests. These are not the run of the mill invitations, by any means. And, Kim is not any ordinary designer. She is an artist, who creates a
picture of your wedding, a
lasting memory for every guest. This beautiful storybook, on the left, is called Sea of Love and was created for Ileana and Tomas, who met on a cruise ship. Listen, as Ileana share her experience with Kim. It will be clear why Kim is such a personal favorite of mine and why, if you are looking for something totally unique for your invitations, you should look no further.

I asked Kim to tell me a little about herself and Heirloom Occasions. Here is what she had to say:

Love Tree

BA: How did you get started?

Kim: I began designing for private clients while I was an ART DIRECTOR for an agency in Bethlehem. I set up a web site and the business started flooding in from all around the country.

BA: What is your inspiration?

Kim: The Griffin and Sabine Love Trilogy. A fabulous series of 3 books that every romantic should read.

BA:What do you want brides to know about you?

Kim: That unlike other invitation designers, I will conceptualize with you to capture the true essence of you and your fiancé and why you are uniting. Then translate that into a beautiful design.

BA: Tell me about your business philosophy.

Kim: I enjoy working with clients who desire to design event ART that is interesting and thought provoking. I believe that is the core of a marriage and I incorporate well-thought-out concepts into all of my work.

BA: Tell me a little about your product:

Kim: Conceptual Event Art Packages in the form of invitations, programs, custom monograms, placecards, etc.

BA: What should a bride look for in an invitation company ?

Kim: She should always look for someone who understands her ideals. Someone who, through an interview, discover the love behind the upcoming marriage or event. And then choose your designer wisely. Try not to be scared off by the unrealistic fear of a high price tag. Instead, explore creative options with your designer, because, with their experience, they may have ideas you have never considered, and inexpensive ways of achieving them.

BA: Why should a bride choose your company?

Kim: Because I offer a highly conceptual experience for a fraction of the cost of the few other designer options available at this level.

BA: Describe one of your favorite weddings.

Kim: Intertwined, the wedding of Marisa and Corey. The wedding was this summer and I was honored to be chosen to design the invitation book and placecards. Interestingly my 2 daughters were asked to take part as flower girls, so that always makes it more special. But the setting was the gorgeous Brandywine Manor House and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day. Sunflowers were the main attraction and the entire wedding book invitation, poetically described the couple, as a pair of sunflowers rising out of the earth,

Discovering their inner beauty and not being blinded by their outer beauty. You can read about it on my blog called INNER BEAUTY.

BA: Anything else you would like to talk about…

Kim: Enjoy every moment of your planning and share your unique story with your friends and family so that your marriage, and wedding day, will forever live in their minds as a wonderful memory.
