About Us title

We are Jonathan and Whitney Speir, and are the team behind Brown Sugar Design. We are designers with more than twenty years of combined experience in the field, having worked in the worlds of marketing, advertising, and project management.

We are thrilled to utilize the skills we’ve learned in the corporate world in each of our wedding stationery projects. Our designs are a unique melding of our talents and the individual visions of each of our clients. Using only the finest products, techniques, and printing processes, we work with brides and grooms to create an individually distinctive and chic package that will set the tone for their special day.

Our work has been recognized by numerous publications, bloggers, and competitions – check out our press section for a peek at what people are saying about Brown Sugar Design. (Yeah, that’s right… we’re pretty awesome.)

Oh, and… a proper introduction wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Stella: our resident frenchie in charge of lounging around the studio. She keeps a watchful eye on things and keeps us in line.

We were married in October of 2003 and understand the pressures and excitement associated with planning a large event. It’s a true honor when a bride and groom choose us to work with them in orchestrating their special day.
