our story

Sweetheart Shout Out was started in 2010 by design duo Tara + Phillip,

who after experiencing their own wedding planning tornado, decided to make ordering wedding invitations, well................simple!

Our wedding was madness!  We were engaged for 3 whole years, but everything was pushed till the last minute.  With details like formal attire, formal dinners, ceremonies, and of course, wedding invitations, it was like, ‘Wow, I need a text book to figure out this one thing that I will never have to do again.’  We wished we had a fairy godmother to wave her wand and take care of everything.  So here we are 8 years later, dedicated not only to creating awesome wedding invitations, but to making things magically easy for all the couples we work with.



Our goal is to make ordering your invitations the easiest part of your wedding preparations.  We provide you with your own designer that will walk you through the process and make sure your invitations are

We’ll wow you - so you can wow your guests!


perfect and



meet the designers




* design sweetie

Hi! I'm Tara, your friendly neighborhood designer. You know me most for wedding design, but I also love putting my skills to the test, pursuing other creative and entrepreneurial projects including app and product design and body painting. I try to play hard whenever I'm not otherwise occupied, exploring new places, practicing slack lining and convincing others to find weird or delicious snacks with me. I really like to climb trees and jump off of stuff and chances are you will see me in my beloved Seattle Super Sonics hat.




* rugged design man

Why do I design wedding invitations? Maybe I’m trying to make up for the horrible invitations we had at our own wedding. Tara went to Namibia for a study abroad program and got back a mere 3 weeks before our nuptials. Of course, she left the invitations up to me. I will not regale you with a description of how bad they were. The reaction of her friends when she received her copy is more than telling. A sharp gasp and then a hush falls across the crowd...Finally someone asks

“Tara, are you going to be ok?”

So now, steeped in design and fueled with a desire to right the wrongs of the past, my mission is to design crisp, clean, elegant, and original invitations for your special day.
