Tuscany Wedding – wedding calligrapher

I am absolutely thrilled to see Regina and Ryan’s wedding up on Style Me Pretty Weddings – Destination this week. It was such a joy working with Regina and the team at Momental for her wedding calligraphy. 

I provided totally custom calligraphy for Regina’s wedding suite and monogram. The team at Momental printed and added their extra special painting (to each one!) to finish the process. I then addressed the envelopes and guests were invited!

   
 When it came to day of items, the result was stunning. I must admit, some of my very favorite day of stationery in a long long time. Look at those flowers!  Each white section was hand painted. Swoon. We used the calligraphy to match her invitations. Black for the escort card calligraphy and gold calligraphy for the place cards at the top of the menus. 

   
   
I’m also in love with the beautiful programs.

 

Congratulations to Regina and Ryan on your wedding day. 

Instagram wedding – Napa Calligraphy

It is always a privilege to contribute to a persons wedding. On a rare occasion, said wedding is published in a beautiful magazine. Then I get to share some of the beautiful images with you. Congratulations to Nicole Schuetz (Surto CEO) and Kevin Systrom (Instagram founder) on your wedding and filling the pages of Vogue.

Unfortunately, only the photos released for public viewing can be shared (and not much calligraphy made the cut) – but the team who worked on this event did an incredible job.

Classic wedding dinner menu – New York calligrapher 

I just love a classic dinner menu for a wedding. They are extra special when you add personalized place card names in a traditional copperplate calligraphy hand and have them engraved and edged in gold foil. Just love!

Texas Fall Ballroom Wedding Reception – Dallas Calligrapher

Wrapping up this trip down memory lane, I could not leave without sharing one of my favorite projects.  Super fun and functional – stir sticks!  We chose to etch the monogram and wedding date on these and they turned out great!  Plus they looked wonderful during cocktail hour :-)

Finally, they did give out delicious cookies to all guests and were sitting on the tables.  Each box had a thank you tag and custom packaging with the new monogram and flavors.

Dallas Wedding Calligrapher – Fall Ballroom Wedding

My sister hosted a lovely reception in the Crescent Club at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel, Dallas. This warm and inviting space called for intimacy at the tables. At time for friends and family. So the florals were kept low so guests could chat with each other and the candles were abundant.

This “table number” for the head table was actually the couples new monogram. Such a fun idea.  Floral by Bella Flora Dallas.

All the menus were original hand calligraphy in silver ink on blue paper. The corner notches carried the details from the invitation over. We used my zanner hand for all the calligraphy details.
