It’s the time of year when pretty winter invitations start getting designed, addressed and mailed. I’m thrilled for this one below! Book your calligraphy now to ensure time on my schedule!
As an event calligrapher- This past week I had the absolute joy of contributing to the Inner Circle Experience by personalizing menu cards for the attendees. Ceci New York created the stunning designs. I had the joy of calligraphing each attendees name on each of the menu cards in my signature flourished script.
Look at these custom shapes & beautiful bronze foiling. The calligraphy ink matched perfectly. The menu was large at 12 inches tall also! All of the menu details were foil printed on the backside in a matching bronze color.
For the gala on the last night Ceci created the most unique menu cards. Based on the origami design from the invitation, the patterns on each layer and the folding design had me smitten. You can see the foiled patterns and how it stood tall on the plate in the top picture. The bottom photo is one I took of the menu cards flat and you can see a bit of the menu text that was on each panel. The black paper with matching pink gold ink was perfect along with my signature flourished script. As an event calligrapher, I am always a big fan of place cards that have the guest’s first name only because it means it is an intimate event full of conversation!
Here is a photo of the invitations and gorgeous black gusset envelopes with pretty pink gold calligraphy ink in my signature flourished hand. These were about 1/2 an inch thick with a patterned liner printed on the inside that created a real wow factor when the guest opened it. Ceci then had an origami folded invitation with her signature patterns that opened up to a couple of informational cards. It was really a piece of art!
I loved sharing a little bit of my calligraphy for this nordic romance styled photoshoot with Each and Every Detail. The gold calligraphy on this gorgeous pink agate turned out to be stunning on the table and a really nice pop of color.
I also was smitten with these rich colors from the florals!
What do you think about the mini tarts and moody lighting for this display. It feels like a warm party is going on with a terrible chilly storm raging outside to me.
This was a styled photoshoot to display what some wonderfully talented creatives can do. They really pulled it all together so I’d like to give credit to all – visit their websites and see what you can do with some amazing Dallas wedding vendors.
When you have a Mexico destination wedding, it is really a good way to make it festive and joyful through color and shapes. Emily Clarke and her event branding sister company The Detail Department did a fantastic job with planning and design of this colorful wedding celebration at Casa Hyder in Mexico.
My envelope addressing using my Mitty Caps calligraphy in pink ink. This kept the event fun and festive. The escort cards were probably my very favorite feature of this event. The laser cut limes on a tequila shooter was perfect to welcome guests to a celebratory reception after the ceremony. We used my mitty calligraphy in white ink and the table numbers were spelled out in spanish to keep with the theme.
Place cards for the rehearsal dinner was on a tag printed to look like a spanish tile. My mitty calligraphy in matching blue ink really tied everything together. The tags were strung around a single serving bottle of tequila (seeing a trend?!). This table setting is one of my favorites to date with the exposed wood, simple green and white floral garland lush and low, real candle light and the blue and white tile runner. A perfect combination for a long night of good conversation.
The wedding day place cards and table setting was filled with more color and texture. Place cards were laser cut doves (as seen on the save the date) with my Talia calligraphy in white. This bright happy place setting and lush floral garland is more of everything compared to the prior night celebration.
Another one of my favorite features from this wedding were these 5 feet tall letters displayed at the welcome party. Really cool. Perfect job by Emily Clarke and team!
This luxury Austin Texas wedding was featured in Martha Weddings and I am thrilled to share it with you! The team of creatives was outstanding so be sure to checkout everyone involved below but I do want to shout out to some of the idea makers: Design & Planning by The Wildflowers, Stationery by Southern Fried Paper, stunning photography by Ryan Ray and gorgeous floral by The Southern Table. This is what happy wedding dreams are made of and it was such an honor for me to play a part in it.
Well, I have to say it… these are some of my very favorite wedding invitations created so far. I adore the modern script, clean classic letterpress in blue on thick paper and can we talk about the stunning envelope liner? WOW! It is feminine without being girly, the blue tones are dreamy and the modern script keeps it fresh looking. The envelope addressing was actually in a pale blue for a tonal look. Southern Fried Paper and I have such a good working relationship and you can really see it come together in this suite.
The escort card display was an art installation between paper, artist Kayla Barker and florist The Southern Table. The escort cards were on grey paper with purple ink in the same modern script used on the invitations. Each card had a dainty little blue ribbon and push pin used to hang on the large scale back drop created by Kayla Barker. Finishing touches of floral decorations added by The Southern Table.
When the guests entered the reception tent for this luxury Austin Texas wedding; they were greeted by a stunning hanging floral installation, twinkle lights and welcoming long tables set up specifically for hearty laughs and good conversations.
Each place setting used a beautiful lacy charger, linen napkins, blue ribbon and a personalized menu card. The menu color designated which entree the guest selected and the names were in a coordinating blue. The effect was a graceful ombre across the table from light, medium and dark blue. We also used a favorite of mine – first names only so they could be large and make a statement!
A happy wedding party, beautiful florals and love all around.
Finally, each guest received a little welcome bag filled with Texas based items and a little tag tied on that featured my calligraphy.
