About Taryn

Hi, I’m Taryn, the artist behind the pen. I’m a native San Diegan and lover (and winner!) of strategy board games. After graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder, I found myself calling San Diego home again with my husband and one-year old daughter. When I’m not creating, I’m usually exploring the San Diego brewery scene with a hoppy IPA in hand or discovering a new favorite food — all the salty and spicy food please! Fun fact: I once went to three of Lady Gaga’s concerts in three different cities in one year. I can’t wait to get to know you and your loved one and create something special!

My commitment to you

Meeting and working with my clients  is my favorite part of the process – I have a hard time letting go at the end! From our first conversation to the final delivery, I’ll work with you every step of the way to guarantee you love your product. I’m here to guide and collaborate with you, your style, and your budget to create something that reflects your personality and remarkable marriage.

I never thought I’d be that bride who would care about what their wedding invitation looked like, until I found Twinkle & Toast. Even living on opposite sides of the country, [they] worked with me every step of the way to design the perfect wedding invitation! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

I just LOVE Taryn and everything that she creates... She helped us create the most unique and beautiful wedding invitation and day-of items for our wedding. She was amazing with working with me on different ideas, any changes that I needed, and also helped out with making sure I was watching the budget as well.

Above all, she is the sweetest person, who is honest and truly went above and beyond for us. We are so sad our wedding is over and that we won’t be able to keep creating new items together. Thank you for everything!

Taryn of Twinkle & Toast is amazing! [She] takes on every task with a smile and is willing to try writing on pretty much anything. Our guests couldn’t help but swoon over how pretty their names looked in her writing.

I [sent Taryn] a frantic email ... and she set a date to meet with me and we went over EVERYTHING! We talked like we were long lost friends, we shared photos and talked all sorts of wedding fun!

Some may think that silly details in a sign for your wedding are a wasted expense, I however, love these little details ... That’s just it though, they are OURS! Unique and created just for us holding those special memories from our wedding day!
