Hello World Paper Co.


Once in awhile, 
Right in the middle of an ordinary life, 
Love gives us a fairy tale.

This to me is what weddings are all about. Fairy tales and dreams come true. I love to be a part of someone’s special day, but it all started by accident.  

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2006 and met my now husband in 2007. Once my disease was in remission we got married and at our wedding in lieu of favors we donated to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. This small gesture is what inspired me to open up my shop and help other couples find charities special to them to give back to on their big day. With each charity wedding favor card and pin I sell I give back to the charity of the couple’s choosing. I have given over $3,500 to various charities throughout the world and feel that in my own small way I am making dreams come true for brides, grooms, and the people they touch with their generous donations.  

From there my little shop grew to include all things wedding and event planning from invites to stamps and note cards, but the heart of my shop will always be the charities that I support with my brides and grooms.
