Hi, I’m Leigh.
Leigh Karsch is a designer and graphic artist whose expertise and business acumen have flourished such that her event design studio was distinguished as a member of The Knot’s Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
Having studied politics at Ursinus College, Karsch personifies the liberal arts graduate who transcends her major. She furthered her education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania and then took on a graphic design and marketing manager role for an international law firm. At the end of her tenure with the Philadelphia-based firm, Karsch collaborated on the development and launch of a premiere workplace training ancillary company, which yielded $15 million in its first year of business.
Soon thereafter, inspired by entrepreneurial creativity, Karsch established her own business, La Petite Fleur, weddings & events. For more than a decade, Karsch and her studio team produced weddings and events— specializing in custom-designed stationery and floral décor. Consistently recognized as an industry leader, the studio garnered press in a number of print, online and TV segments.
Karsch recognized that the professional paper artistry service she offered was just as integral to an event and, consequently, just as significant to her studio’s business, as floral décor. In 2017, Karsch formalized the paper atelier services of La Petite Fleur and launched Fleurish Ink. Fleurish ink offers custom designed stationery, semi-custom suites and accessories for milestone events, and supports other businesses with creative direction, graphic design and social media management. Recently featured on 6ABC Philly, CBS3 Philly to discuss trends, Leigh’s studio was also acknowledged by Philadelphia Wedding as one of the top stationers in Philadelphia.
