Heather and the HLR Designs story

For many years I have been creating unique invitations and cards for family and friends. They have always been well received, and so I decided to share my creativity with others to help make their events even more special. As my design work evolved I developed a passion for decorative papers, patterns, and textures which I love to incorporate in my designs. All invitations and cards are created to fit your wants and needs. I proudly deliver a product that you will love to show off. I enjoy working with couples all over the country; however, I have a special affinity for those who chose to get married at the Outer Banks. I have first hand experience in what it’s like to be a bride at this magical location. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your design needs and let me know how I can help you make your event a day you will never forget.


It’s all about you.  I try to get the clearest possible sense of your style and budget before setting to work.  Each design is custom made and designed to guarantee a unique, bespoke design.  That means regular meetings, texts, and emails are all part of my schedule with couples.  If we can’t meet face to face to discuss design details, I might even send couples small videos showing prototypes and how they function.  I believe that communication is key for everyone involved.  There is no detailed pricing structure like you would get with a template builder; I tailor the design to your budget.
