Hi! I'm Rebekah, owner and founder of Grace & Co. Designs.
I am a wife, mother of two, photographer and blogger - as well a graphic designer.
Grace & Co. started, on a small scale back in 2013, with one of my best friends asking for my help in designing her save the dates, and later her wedding invitations. From there, I have expanded my work from print designs, to website graphics, branding and marketing for other creatives, website design, and digital downloads. Recently, my daughter has been asking for me to do custom Disney illustrations, which she loves.
To tell you a bit more about my journey, my background is in theatre technical production and graphic/web design. In addition to design, I also am a photographer. For me, photography was a passion that grew out of a love for capturing little moments and documenting life through the lens of a camera. Recently, I have been working on revamping my website and getting better at blogging, while preparing for the birth of our second child, a little boy. Our 3 year old daughter is so excited for him to arrive.
WIFE | MOTHER | DESIGNER | PHOTOGRAPHER | BLOGGER
I met my husband, Michael, during the first week of my freshman year of college and we instantly connected as friends and shortly after that he asked me to be his girlfriend. That was in 2009 - fast forward a few years and we finally were able planning our wedding and get married the month after I graduated from college. It was a long road of some years long distance and others wondering if we would ever get share in a future together like so many couples we saw get married and start families of their own.
In 2014, the day I was walking for graduation from Liberty with my undergraduate degree, we got news that Michael had gotten a full time job up there and he was to start in a few weeks. This green lighted the wedding plans in over the month of June that year while he was starting his new job and settling into our apartment, I was back home - wedding planning. It was a wonderful day and I was so thankful for all the love, support and help we received to make it happen in such a short time. I will always cherish the photos that my friend Heather, owner of HNR Photography, took of that special day.
Later that year we welcomed our little surprise, Abigail Grace. That is where my heart for design started to evolve into something more. What started as a favor to a friend, turned into a passion that my husband strongly encouraged me to pursue, which was the founding of what is now Grace & Company Designs.
