Friday introductions a day late— We are Erick Luces and Michelle McMurray de Luces (me) of Wedding Story Writer. Erick is the art director and designer of our books and boxes, while I am the founder and creative director. All designs we do come directly from my head. I sketch them out and then Erick critiques them. He is a great artist, very precise and tends to look for balance in a mathematical sense. I’m the opposite, often whimsical and using flourishes on an abstract side. Together we do well as a team. We love to be together and although we live a very busy life, we find time for coffee alone on the weekends. We have two boys together, ages 11 and 13, so our lives often revolve around soccer, Kung fu and homework. An interesting thing we’ve done this year: a bride contacted us to make her wedding invitations love story style. I told her we’d never made invitations, but if she trusted me with it I felt confident that we could create a beautiful suite, which we did. The bride absolutely loves them, which warms my heart. So, although our focus is on wedding stories and vow books, we can bring wedding invitations, welcome books, programs, and all sorts of other design projects to the table. Awesome photo by my dear friend @kismisink_mariana who, by the way, owes me a phone call otherwise I’m gonna have to fly down there and scope her out...✈️hint hint #fridayintroductions #saturdaymorning #parisisalwaysagoodidea #eiffeltower #loveinparis #destinationwedding #destinationweddings #fineartwedding #weddingphotographer #bridetobe #powercouple #elegantmenstyle #groomstyle #distinguishedgentleman #entrepreneurmindset #entrepreneurwoman at Tour Eiffel

We take a lot of time to make our boxes. Precision is very important to us, and it shows! We custom make boxes in all of our linen colors to match weddings and brands, and also design custom size boxes. We offer in-house foil stamping, too, with no set-up fees! #boxeseverywhere #custombox #bookbox #customweddinginvitation #vowbook #vowmepretty #bridetobe #luxuryweddings at Cary, North Carolina


I’m in love with this pretty gold wax seal we designed as part of Nicole and Ian’s tropical wedding suite. The bride wanted a custom family crest using bougainvillea flowers that she loves so much and a big “B” for the family name. #waxseal #customcrest #crest #custominvitations #custominvitation #luxurydesign #luxurywedding #luxuryweddings #bahamawedding @waxseals @weddingstorywriter @michellemcmurraydeluces


We recreated our vow book from our 2001 wedding using blue silk. This phrase means “You and no other” in old French, which matches our wedding bands. Our first vow book was lost in a flood along with the majority of our wedding photos. Luckily, I had some mementos in another location, including my precious wedding gown and about ten photos. #france #destinationwedding #lovestory #weddingday #vowbook #destinationweddings #pariswedding #elopeinparis #paris #francewedding


What are your Friday plans? I am painting wedding invitations today—100 of them. It’s going to be fun and slightly stressful as I hope for minimal mistakes. 😁 After that, we are shipping a vow book and book box to a client in #canada🇨🇦 who needs to win the ultimate best aunt award—it’s a gift for her gorgeous niece. We are working this weekend, as well. I’m hoping to take one day off next week to house hunt, as we still have not found a house that will be sufficient until our new home can be built. (More on that on @michellemcmurraydeluces later though. That’s more of a long rant! Lol) Photo @amandaolivia Hair Makeup @jennifercnieman Flowers @lindsaycollettaflorals Dress @elitepourlavie @marchesafashion Instructor @tulleandgrace Model @chloe.m.hall Vow book @weddingstorywriter #vowbook #vowbooks #vowmepretty #bridestory #luxurydesign #destinationwedding #fineartwedding #fineartweddings #weddingstorywriter


It was all worth flying up to New York last second today to attend the launch of Sophisticated Weddings magazine and the reopening of @ziegfeldballroom! It pleases me so much when I run into my friends at events! @cecinewyork @littleredbeanprod @sjsevents (not shown) i’m looking forward to seeing you again next month for @davidbeahm’s fundraiser celebration! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, head over to David‘s Instagram account and click on the link. This is a must-attend party and for a great cause! Meet me there! #weddingindustry #charityball #charityevent #bethereforme at Ziegfeld Ballroom


My heart broke for this special couple when I learned their new home caught fire last week. They lost a lot, but they are all safe, the most important thing of all. I’m particularly touched by her words. Please read below, and then hop on over to follow her. She’s an amazing uber-talented artist and she (and her entire family) is one of the kindest humans on this planet. Repost @sarakatecouture with @get_repost ・・・ Vows are a serious thing, and I meant every word of mine when I stood at the altar with @superbaggles1 just 7 months ago, with a storm brewing in the distance, and little knowing all these months would hold for us, from emergency trips to pregnancy to sickness to fire - My beautiful friend @hollychapple told me the morning after my wedding as I was lamenting the Virginia thunderstorm that pummeled our guests and literally tore down our outdoor decor behind us as we recessed, that people say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day, but no one ever tells you why. She told me why. She said that a wet knot is nearly impossible to untie. And it holds true. So thankful for our storms and our struggles- each one has shown us strength we didn’t know we had; revealed characteristics that I didn’t know my husband possessed, but adore in him; taught us very swiftly the meaning of love, marriage and loyalty. These original vow books with custom designed #sarakatecouture monogram and gorgeously created by @weddingstorywriter were one of the first items I removed from our fire-stricken bedroom. So thankful I kept them in boxes. Smoke does get into everything, but the damage is so minimal due to being carefully tucked away. The boxes themselves are completely covered in soot- but no matter what, the vows contained therein remain true and strong and solid. | photo by @lisaziesing for @abbyjiu #grateful #blessed #housefire #vows #vowbooks #wedding #engaged #customdesign #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #weddingdetail #stationer #stationery #luxury #styled #weddingstyle #romanticbride #vowbook #vowbooks #vowmepretty #weddingstorywriter


We love it when our brides post photos of their vow books! This bride was super excited and posted several instastories about it! 💗 📸@yanikeworld 💋 Opal velvet/rose gold foil #vowbook #vowbooks #luxuryvowbooks #velvet #opal #pinkwedding #rosegold #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #realbride #slcweddings #utahwedding #vowmepretty


It’s Saturday, and a lot of couples are reading through their vows while preparing for that walk down the aisle! We hope they have a great vow book like our peony pink book, but if not, they can always get one after their wedding to preserve those words.

I love double exposures, particularly when using wedding vows! What do you think about this effect?

I have ten fingers and each one has space for a stunner like this one! Ring @trumpetandhorn Photo @4cornersphoto #engagementring #engaged


We are in the month of romance and are all about shades of red. This vow book is in a burgundy velvet, a very deep and sensual color, topped by a vintage ring box—right up our alley! Speaking of which, I have a small collection of old ring boxes in my styling kit. This one is very pretty, although it does not belong to me. They are getting harder and harder to find.

Happy Valentine’s Day! We used my mother’s vintage valentine cards from the 50’s to style this photo! She has one that my father gave her in fifth grade!
