Every relationship has a unique, incredible story — why strip something as special as your wedding stationery down to the current trendiest thing or include a design element that’s pretty but has no meaning to you? I love to work with couples that want to celebrate how they got here and to share that story as a gift with their loved ones in the ultimate kick-off to their marriage.

Telling stories through art has been something I’ve loved since I was a little kid running around with oversized glasses at the tip of my nose. I ultimately earned my B.F.A. in Art and Graphic Design. Emily Baird Design was founded in 2011, and since diving full time into design as a professional, I’ve found my main love lies in creating wedding stationery, branding projects, and exploring new creative endeavors like venue drawing, watercolor, and collaging. Over the years, my work has been featured in numerous wedding publications in print and online, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Washingtonian Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and The Knot.

When I’m not hustling away at my Old Town Alexandria studio, you’ll likely find me pondering if I was born in the wrong time (anything from the ‘40-’70s is pure magic!), sorting through vintage and natural treasures for my home, or snuggling with my (sometimes wild but mostly adorable) cats Pumpkin, Bijou, and Baby Cat.


Emily went above and beyond for every.single.thing. and made us even more excited for our special day. Words aren’t enough! It’s hard to express the love we have for Emily and her design work for our special day. When it comes to your wedding, you want as much as possible to be done with ease. Not only did Emily make the process for our save the dates, invitations, and signage as smooth as possible, but she also made them more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. She was open to all of our ideas and truly brought them to life. Emily went above and beyond for every.single.thing. and made us even more excited for our special day. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything, Em!Kendall and Nick, Couple

Every wedding is a
show stopper
Whether you’re hosting a micro affair with minimal but meaningful details or a full blown wedding extravaganza with 300 of your closest friends, I’m over-the-moon excited to help you celebrate your romance with the small, personal details in mind. I believe in three things above all else when it comes to wedding paper design: luxury quality, personal and unique significance in the details, and above and beyond service.

Excellence starts with choosing the most quality paper and print methods available. We’ll walk through the different print methods available for your stationery, and I’ll make recommendations based on what I know to work best for your particular design and budget. Pillowy paper and custom-crafted envelopes? Those really get my heart fluttering. We’ll work with stocks that will showcase your design on the perfect canvas, and if the perfect piece doesn’t exist — we’ll make it. Lastly, every piece of stationery that leaves the EBD studio is quality-inspected and shipped out with extra care.
