Our Love Story

From Your Love Story, To Ours

True love is built on time, trust, and respect. Spending the rest of your life with someone is no simple decision!  There are so many memories, experiences, and small details that have lead to your own beautiful, unique love story! 

At Burlap & Lace, it is that "essence" that drives our core as a company. Nothing will compare to the moment you finally get to say "I do," but we strive to provide the ability to memorialize these truly unforgettable moments through every custom t-shirt and accessory. 


It all started in High School...

I saw him before he probably even knew who I was. I thought he was cute, and he looked friendly, but something made me shy away from getting to know him better. We were living parallel lives, attending the same college and graduate school after high school. He knew of me and I knew of him and we would say "hi" and have quick chats whenever our paths would cross. But never anything further, until one night when our lives brought us to the same place at the same time and we connected, he asked for my number. He wasn't quite ready for a serious relationship, and I wasn't accepting anything less than that, so our paths diverged once again for another year. The night we met again and never looked back was right before Christmas in 2004. We both had ended other relationships recently and decided we would each be single, and went out with friends just to have fun. I looked up and there he was, across the bar from me...

That Smile...

He smiled at me and motioned me to come over. I was over it, we had met a year before and I was ready and he wasn't so I shook my head "no" and motioned for him to do the work and come to me. I turned around and continued talking to the people I was with. Christian decided to make his way over to me. We were inseparable for the rest of the night. We both had never danced with anyone else as well as with each other, and it ended up being an indication of what the future held.
