I am lucky enough to work with some of the best professionals in the business day in and day out. I like to think I show our vendors love with every wedding I send their way, but sometimes, it’s just not enough. To let my vendors know just how much I love them and how I couldn’t do what I do without them, I’ve come up with a way to shine the light on these incredibly talented artists.
My second post in this mini-series is spotlighting Josh from 1409 Boutique Stationery Design. From the moment I met Josh in a small town coffee shop, I knew he had untapped potential. His ability to capture elegance and sophistication through a set of stationery was beyond measure.
Here’s what Josh had to say when I sat down with him.
Company Name: 1409 Boutique Stationery Design

Tell us a little bit about your company.
The story of 1409 starts in a condo elevator in 2013 on a very normal morning on my way to work, this is where I met my wife for the first time. 1409 is a reflection of the love and happiness you can find in another, even in the most unlikely of places.
…It was also the sum of our apartment numbers.
1409 is a boutique shop offering a range of luxury, beautifully designed, cheerful invitations including event stationery and seasonal designs which are infused with charm and charisma to make it easier to bring friends and family to any event, celebration or special moment.
What sets you apart from other vendors within your line of work?
The excitement one gets when they receive a personalized envelope in the mail, that is not the average bill or junk, is almost a rare feeling nowadays. It is the moment when the wedding experience first starts for your guests and the first impression of the most important day of your life.
1409 strives to make this moment perfect, for every couple and for every event.
What’s your favorite part about a wedding?
Successfully completing the almost impossible task of bringing all the most important people in a couple’s life to one celebration. Having experienced it myself, it is one of the most amazing sights to witness.
What is something you wish couples knew?
Not to sweat the small stuff.
It’s inevitable that a couple will stress over minor details with décor, seating arrangements, etc. Once the day comes and you’re with all of your most loved family and friends, those small things will be the absolute last thing on your mind.
