I fell in love with a soft grey color created to match a client’s William Arthur invitations recently. It is so soft and cozy looking, and reminds me of a cloudy day. The copperplate font is used on ecru envelopes in a mix of black ink and white gouache. They were stunning.

A client of mine asked for a poem to be written out to be framed with some pictures for his father. The poem was an original by his mother to his father written on their 45th wedding anniversary. I thought it was just too sweet. We chose a blue ink using an easy to read italic font. Simple to not detract from the meaning of the poem.
Calligraphy is not only for addressing envelopes. My lovely Chicago mother of the bride came to me the week before the wedding because they decided to have a specialty drink served at the reception and wanted to provide a bar menu. We did four identical menus in gold ink and the citadel alphabet. They turned out lovely and matched the invitations perfectly.
