Head Over Heels | Wedding Collection Winners

The Head Over Heels challenge was our biggest wedding challenge of the year. There were a ton of amazing entries this time around and for good reason. Designers had the chance not only to win individual prizes, but also to launch their very own wedding collections on Minted. The first of the wedding collections was awarded to the designer with the most designs in the top 20, as voted by the Community. Two more wedding collection winners were selected by Minted’s editorial team based on performance in the Head Over Heels challenge as well as past design challenges.

The first collection award went to the very deserving Jennifer Wick. Of the eight Jennifer Wick designs selected to be sold on Minted, three made it into the top 20, coming in at second, sixth and thirteenth! To land this many designs in the top 20, out of 1,639 submissions, was quite the feat. Jen’s gorgeous florals and clever type treatments are the perfect addition to our wedding assortment and we’re so happy the voters agreed. Congratulations Jen!

We’re thrilled to announce that Rachel Simonsen of Alethea and Ruth is one of the two Minted editor’s picks for a collection win. We were in awe of Rachel’s modern yet elegant designs in this challenge and have been big fans of her work since “Banner and Branches” won first place in our Happily Ever After wedding challenge last year. We very much look forward to launching these fantastic designs for sale on Minted. Congratulations Rachel!

Kristen Smith was also chosen by Minted editors to receive the prize of launching her own wedding collection. Kristen is a powerhouse graphic designer, having been voted into the top 20 in the last eight design challenges. Her beautiful pattern work and clean typography style has really resonated with consumers and designers alike. Congratulations Kristen!
