Bella Figura Calligrapher – California Save the Dates

It’s no secret that I love working with Bella Figura as a designer.  The best part of being a calligrapher is that I get to lend my hand to other designers work.

This joie de vivre suite is so festive year round for any event.  And below a photo from the new Bella Figura website of the invitation for the same couple!

Austin Calligrapher – Modern Monotone Calligraphy

Good Morning, I have loved this envelope suite since I worked on them this summer with The Nouveau Romantics and wanted to share.  They work for the fall too with the classic monotone styling.  Personally, grey is my favorite of the classics (navy and black are close behind) and I love the dark grey ink on light grey envelope.

Fort Worth Calligrapher – Colonial Country Club

A few months ago Colonial Country Club hired me to write a few inscriptions on some pictured destined to hang on their hallowed walls.

This one was huge!  I think it measured 60 across!

All these were done in black ink with the italic style I don’t normally use (but had a wonderful teacher who taught me with a strong foundation so it was familiar to pick back up after 4 years).

Dallas Wedding Calligrapher – Classic Addressing

It has been noticed that the classic copperplate style is making a comeback and I am thrilled.  While all the frills and frou are lovely sometimes – nothing beats the clean lines of a classic style.  Easy to read and lovely.

This one was done with the lovely Southern Fried Paper.  A clean grey letterpress for a sophisticated summer wedding in Boston.

Flourished Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

This was created for a magazine photo shoot that didn’t get picked up so I get to share here first!

The idea was a wild birthday party and I was asked to go a bit “overboard” on the flourishing.  What do you think?  My favorite part might just be the torn top and bottom edges to be honest :-)

Austin Wedding Calligrapher – with The Nouveau Romantics

My friends at The Nouveau Romantics throw the most splendid parties.  They are truly some of my favorite planners/designers to work with.  Here are some signs for a fall wedding we did together.  Done in my Zanner script, white ink on blue paper (and navy ink on white paper).

I just love these top signs.  They are really clean and classic looking.

Bella Figura Calligrapher – Texas Wedding

It’s no secret that I love working with my friends at Bella Figura.  They create beautiful letterpressed wedding invitations and make my work look awesome.  Kathryn was great to work with and I love that she continued the lettering with the addressing.

Isn’t the response card great? And the white invitation really pops with the kraft envelopes!

Chicago Wedding Calligrapher – Escort Cards

More Kraft Paper today! These little escort cards turned out really nice.  I like it when the number and name are on the same side of paper and just a number is written.  It is really clean looking to me.

Dallas Wedding Calligrapher – Save the Date

It is so fun when I get to work in fun colors and the save the date is perfect for that.  I am loving this matching teal ink for the envelope to pair with the save the dates designed and printed by Southern Fried Paper.  This whole set is so happy!

Canada Calligrapher – Wedding Signs

This summer I got to work on a few wedding signs for an awesome Canadian bride.  Erin wanted lots of movement in the letters plus some floral wreath accents.  This is what we came up with.  Those big signs are big too!  The instagram is 20×24 in size!

The quotes were spread around cocktail hour and turned out great I think.
