So, what's with the name?
“First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. That’s not all...then comes business.”
Morris & Company Designs was birthed after I married "my love" Andre Morris. It's true what they say, opposites do attract. Andre is much more calculated and strategic, whereas I am more creative and artistic. Even in college, I studied art and advertising, while he studied African American History (he's a big reader.) With that being said though, we balance each other so well; planning our wedding was a "ying-yang" type experience. From decor, to the bouquets, almost everything was DIY, and as a newly engaged couple we successfully planned and executed our wedding in 72 days! (We we're literally "madly in love!") Though there were many joys (and stresses), I remember the invitations being my favorite task during that time, and thus the idea for a custom invitation business was suggested––suggested, but not yet developed.
Officially the "Morrises," a month after the wedding, we discovered that we were pregnant! Shocked and also thrilled, when it came time to create the baby shower invitations, I couldn't resist. It sparked my creativity again, and took me back to my college days; the idea of designing the invites was not a daunting task but instead a rather joyful one. Compliments came one after the other, once the invites were mailed, we both knew that custom designs could potentially be the perfect avenue to delve into. Four weeks later, after getting some serious social media buzz and launching online, Morris & Company Designs was thriving. We are excited for what’s next!
