meet josie, founder & artist

Originally from Scotland, now I'm a small town Minnesota Lake Girl with a love of watercolor painting. It’s a passion that was handed down to me from my parents. I have been painting and designing high-end wedding stationery for the past 17 years, creating one-of-a-kind watercolor portraits to help share the love stories of couples around the globe.

kind words from past clients

"Working with Josie was a dream."

"We couldn’t be happier with the final products! From the custom monogram, to the welcome signs, to the custom painting of our venue, everything was stunning. We received so many compliments about how beautiful and unique our invitations were! Josie was an amazing support system throughout the whole process and offered her own advice too!"

Erica H, 2022 bride

"Josie was amazing to work with."

"She created the most beautiful custom invitations and day-of stationary for us. Her email responses were always quick, professional, and very detailed, which is exactly what I needed as an anxious bride. She answered my etiquette questions thoughtfully and even made sure I was aware of some quirks with the USPS as we were designing my envelopes."

Allison M, 2022 bride

"I HIGHLY recommend Josie!"

"Josie was amazing to work with! She was fast to respond and willing to make any changes needed. Her work is stunning, I love the invitations she created for us! The invitation suites were so beautiful that I didn't even want to take them out of the boxes to send to our guest! I HIGHLY recommend Ivory Isle Designs!!"

Danielle M, 2022 bride

"It really was a joy working with Josie."

"She demonstrated impressive amounts of patience and professionalism in working with us over the course of two insane years! We worked with Josie to design our invitations and the results were absolute perfection. Our family continues to talk about our "magazine" wedding and Josie's ability to customize our paper goods really contributed to that experience." 

Caitlin F, 2022 bride

"We loved working with her so much!"

"Josie is extremely responsive and easy to work with. She is able to transform your vision into reality. Not only was she able to capture the beauty of San Miguel from the pictures we shared with her, but also, the feeling we wanted to evoke for our guests from beginning to end in all of our wedding paper. I would highly recommend Ivory Isle Designs!"

Kate P, 2022 bride

"Josie was absolutely phenomenal!"

"I’m a bit of a planner, so I reached out over a year out from our wedding. She took my planning in stride and kept in touch throughout the entire process. She was patient with me and my indecisiveness, and always gave a second opinion if it was needed. The invitations are BEAUTIFUL and I cannot wait to send them out :)"

Laura T, 2022 bride

"Josie is great to work with!"

"Josie is great to work with and we loved the invitation she created for us! She is so talented and took our theme to the next level with a custom sketch that felt so special. She kept us in the loop during ever step of the process and I knew we were in great hands!"

Kaitlyn h, 2022 bride

"I loved Josie’s work!"

She was very organized, detailed, and tried to ensure our theme was captured in her work! I loved all the pieces she made for us - itineraries, bar signs (my absolute favorite), invitation suites, watercolor painting of our venue, all pieces that were seen throughout our ceremony and reception.. the details were amazing!

Angelica S, 2022 bride

"...brought to life our dream wedding."

Working with Josie on our wedding invitations truly brought to life our dream wedding. We chose to have her paint a scene from our venue, which she so graciously helped us decide on. The piece is truly beautiful and captured the romance and beauty that exists both at the farm venue and now on paper. Josie was amazing to work with from start to finish.

Laila B, 2022 bride

"Willing to work with your vision."

I would consider us a pretty tough/difficult customer that she had to deal with. Josie was always super professional and had a great attitude, not to mention she was super punctual. She also was super open to feedback - after our first round of proofs she was great with feedback we provided and she had a ton of other creative suggestions that ultimately helped us get to our end result.

Preston P, 2022 bride

"Josie is worth every penny."

Josie was extremely timely, professional, and a pleasure to work with. We were so pleased with the quality of the watercolor of our venue. Josie is an excellent communicator and is extremely organized. We also decided to use her business again to create a custom watercolor duogram for our thank you letters. Online shops can be hit-or-miss, but Josie at Ivory Isle Designs is worth every penny.
