Richmond Wedding Vendor Spotlight: Pixelstrike Creative
Meet Joseph Baker, co-owner of Pixelstrike Creative and their wedding division, My Special Day!
Tell us a little about your company!
My Special Day is a custom creative wedding design agency offering elegant, all-in-one looks for wedding websites and invitation suites and all the stationery you need.
How did you get started in this business?
One of the founders of our creative agency was getting married and couldn’t find any custom design solutions for his invitation suite or wedding website. Being creative ourselves, we decided to start exploring this space and designed everything for his wedding. We had so much fun, we just kept on offering it as a service to our friends and family, and eventually to the public!
What’s your favorite wedding story?
One of our clients’ wedding stories! Having known each other for a time, they finally decided to go on a date. Unfortunately, he was a no-show! Upset, she went out with friends but came home to a single cupcake on her front porch, with a note from him explaining that he had overslept (he works nights)! She decided to forgive him and the rest was history, but it all started with a cupcake.
Why do you like working with weddings?
We enjoy working with weddings because we love to be a part of the preparations for the special day. We enjoy creating wedding invitation and website suites because it’s something the happy couple can trust us with and not have to worry so much themselves about getting all of the details together. Watching everything come together and being a part of that is something that fills us with pride and excitement for the couple we are celebrating.
From a vendor’s perspective, what is the one best piece of advice you can offer to engaged couples?
Spreadsheets are your friend! Keep detailed spreadsheet of due dates, vendors, their contact information, payments, etc. to keep track of everything.
How far in advance should couples book your services?
10-12 months in advance is best.
What inspired you the most / where do you find inspiration?
Couples’ themes for their weddings!
What do you like to do when you are away from work?
We enjoy traveling, reading, crafts, and spending time with our pets and our significant others.
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
Neither of us are originally from the Richmond area, but have come to consider home!
