Invitation Genius: Ceci Johnson





I had the pleasure of walking through Ceci Johnson's store in NY a couple weeks ago. If you're not familiar with Ceci, I must say she is the genius of luxurious invitation designs. The way she executes her process and layouts is ultimately inspiring.


The team of Ceci New York was kind enough to let me walk through the store and admire all of the breathtaking designs, paper goods and array of invitations for award-winning weddings, special events and charities. She is said to be the "got-to force among a global high-profile social and corporate clientele, including royalty, A-list celebrities and leading luxury brands." I am not the least bit surprised. The first time I laid eyes on the brilliance of Ceci's work, I was inspired to make my own dreams come true of becoming an entrepreneur of customized invitations and paper goods.


The window display set up in the store is incredibly constructed out of Ceci's own designs and invitations that are spilling out of a mailbox. A very whimsical and beautiful display.


Then of course there are the magical invitations, which I will let speak for themselves.


Many thanks to the welcoming ladies who are involved and work behind the scenes of Ceci New York's business and for taking the time to let me peruse my way through an excellent display of designs in your store. (and answering all of my curious questions ;)
