Astrid Mueller LLC
Astrid is master of magical happenings. I brought a blank slate, an open mind and a few ideas. Astrid brought my vision to life in absolute techno-color. Our session started with a thoughtful phone conversation, a lot of email correspondence, and a really great piece. She helped turn my engagement party turned surprise wedding into a reality for everyone. People are still surprised.
At first, I thought of only invitations. One page, illustrated, letter pressed. The job went so smoothly, I commissioned a few more things: place cards, personalized with my guest's names and our faces, thank you cards with our full profiles, letter pressed. Why stop there? I got the cake topper. US, as a cake topper, done up in plexi-glass. Dazzling. All the guests took their place cards home, kept our invite (after realizing it was a likeness of my lace dress), and relished in my thank you cards, one page, simple. What I should be doing is writing one to Astrid to thank her for all she had done.
The invites, place cards, thank you cards, and cake topper- all worked on, proofed and delivered at the timeline we had discussed. When you think something is beautiful on email, you will be absolutely blown away at the final product.
The best part of everything? The experience. The friendship. The ability to turn Astrid's work and frame it into wall art.
If you're looking for something special, something that will make your day from typical to amazing, then hire Astrid.

Q What is the difference between an illustration, a caricature, and a portrait?
A: A caricature takes a person's features and exaggerates them, usually in a funny way. A portrait is a life-like drawing, painting, or illustration that depicts a person in a realistic fashion, almost as if in a photograph. Wedding illustrations by Astrid are neither caricatures nor portraits. Focusing on your best traits, Astrid creates wedding illustrations that interpret you through stylized similarities and make you look like a star…with art and soul added by Astrid!
Q: Can you help with traditional wedding invitation wording?
A: While Astrid Mueller wedding stationery and accessories are jubilant, stylish, and a wonderful design element for a classical wedding, Astrid Mueller products are more modern. Therefore, we don’t specialize in traditional wedding stationery etiquette, instead focusing on unique solutions that may be considered somewhat non-traditional. We will gladly assist you however we can, but recommend you supply us with your final wording.
Astrid's designs and products are totally custom tailored to you and your wedding. We therefore first invite you to tell us about yourself and your dream wedding and what products or design services you are interested in.
