By taking the time to learn about you, we will create pieces that are unique and express your relationship and personal style with special touches. At Grace & Ivy Designs, we believe in the beauty of love – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.



Designer & Owner

With a genuine love for paper goods and weddings, Alaina started Grace & Ivy Designs in 2018. Each custom design is created with intention and care to be treasured as a memento of your special day. 

Alaina has a bachelor's degree in graphic design and works as a brand and event designer by day. She loves to read historical fiction, drink craft beer, and run along the lakefront when she's not designing. 



The very first wedding Alaina worked on was for a college friend’s mom and her wife in 2014.

Alaina has traveled to 12 countries and 32 states.

Baseball is Alaina’s favorite sport and is a huge Chicago Cubs fan!


Alaina was so great to work with for all of our wedding paper goods! She worked with my very particular tastes to build our stationery from the ground up, including calligraphy. She even helped us create custom stickers and welcome bags. I am so grateful for the professional, precise, detail oriented work that she put together to help make our wedding the best day of our life!
