Dominique Alba is a boutique wedding stationery design and calligraphy studio based out of Chicago. Inspired by nature, heirlooms and art, we are passionate about creating meaningful and intentional designs that will be cherished for years to come.
Hi, I'm Dominique!
I design organic and intentional wedding invitations for romantic and sophisticated couples with a passion for art and design. I love helping my clients tell their love stories through unique and meaningful designs that they will proudly share with their grandchildren one day.
I grew up in a family of artists in the south of Brazil, surrounded by old books, classical music and messy canvases and paint. I currently live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and right-hand man, Jesse, and our fat cat, Buddy.
Most people think Alba is my middle name, but it is actually my grandma's name and my mom's middle name. As a former fine artist and art teacher, grandma Alba has been my biggest inspiration for pursuing this creative journey, and her organic, texture-driven style has deeply influenced Dominique Alba's aesthetic since the very beginning.
I was born and raised Brazil near stunning waterfalls, white sand beaches and tropical forests, and nature is still one of my biggest sources of inspiration.
I recently married my best friend, and we live with our furry son Buddy the cat in Burbank, CA, where we share our passion for movies, theater and Italian food.
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with all things old world, the older the better! I have a collection of family heirlooms, antiques and even old movie props. I was definitely born in the wrong century!
"Dominique is amazing! I loved working with her, she always got back to me asap with any questions I had and always kept me in the loop as to the status of my wedding invitations.

I promise you won't be disappointed!"
"My mom and I had the pleasure of working with Dominique on our wedding invitations. She was absolutely amazing to work with. She was so extremely helpful and was always so quick to answer
all of our questions. When the invitations arrived we were in awe opening the beautifully wrapped
boxes to find the most gorgeous invitation! It was so exciting and something we will always
remember. The invitations are just stunning in every way and even more than we could have
imagine! She is so extremely talented and also so kind. She was so easy to work with and really
got exactly what we wanted. We could not thank her enough for all her work!"
"Where do I even begin? I've had the pleasure to work with Dominique on a handful of projects
from bespoke invitation suites all the way to my rebranding and a new logo. I started these
projects with Dominique with a clear idea of what I wanted her to create. After explaining my
vision during our consultations Dominique truly listened and provided honest feedback and
valuable insights. She took my ideas and made them BETTER than what I could have ever expected.
She is a true artist and her work is consistently proving that she is an expert in her field."
"What an excellent professional!! Keeping customers happy means
being responsive to their needs and wants. That's exactly what Dominique did. Thank you for the excellent customer service and work. My guest were so happy with the invitations. I can't wait to work with you again. Definitely will be recommending your business."
