Christy and her husband, Jon Marc, are fairly new to Columbia and absolutely love it! They launched a wedding invitation/website business in 2015 called The Ink Cafe LLC. Christy comes alive working with brides from all over the midwest and thrives on making their dream weddings come true on paper. Christy was born in New Jersey, lived many years in Texas and met her husband in Oklahoma. When she's not designing, she is usually running, playing with her cat, working on her calligraphy or cleaning. She is a paper addict, a fan of her husband and a constant road trip enthusiast visiting family from afar. She loves traveling and going on great adventures. Christy's latest adventure includes crashing Midwest Weddings. She thinks Midwest Brides are so trendy and deserve to be in the spotlight. If you have ever wanted to crash a wedding, but have never had the guts, check out www.theinkcafe.com for the latest blog on her recent midwest wedding crash.
