Paper Made Lovely is a boutique stationery design studio in Rome, Georgia, serving Metro-Atlanta, Chattanooga, Northwest Georgia, and beyond.  We offer clients the opportunity to help create custom branding for their wedding, but unique invitations are just part of the branding experience.  We help you craft a style that works throughout your engagement, into your early years of marriage, and becoming a growing family.

We offer printed and digital save the dates, invitation suites, large or small scale signage, as well as day-of paper goods that range from ceremony programs to placecards.  After your wedding, continue your brand style with thank you notes, moving announcements and personal stationery.  Holidays call for coordinated custom designed photo cards and gift tags. Share the news of your growing family with birth or adoption announcements - and of course, birthday party and special event invitations.

I'm Kelli Barnes and I'm the Creative Director and Founder of Paper Made Lovely.  My education in marketing and graphic design along with an extensive background in wedding planning came together to create Paper Made Lovely and MeaningfullyWed.  These two sister companies under the Southern Creative Co. brand have come to work in harmony providing cohesive wedding services for couples throughout the South and beyond.  

Paper Made Lovely was established in 2007 after our founder, Kelli Barnes, was asked by a dear friend to create her unique wedding invitations. They were very much into planning a meaningful wedding that reflected their personalities individually and also as a couple.  They had an idea of what they wanted which was a great start. Knowing them so well and after taking the bold red and sleek black color palette into consideration, an elegant design began to form.  The end result was nothing short of amazing and is still a base design we currently feature.  The couple was over the moon about their stationery and so Paper Made Lovely was born.

We want to hear your love story!  We love getting to know our local couples and incorporating bits and pieces of their personalities into their wedding branding long the way.  Let's grab a cup of coffee and chat about your vision for your wedding soon!
