These wedding place cards on ribbon have been giving me all the heart eyes recently. I matched the ink to a custom hydrangea blue and used a casual brush script to keep the light and airy feeling of the ribbon. First names only because it was an intimate affair. These gorgeous silk ribbons were tied around a few herbs and placed on the dinner plate for a welcoming place setting.
Working with the top talent in the wedding world is always an honor. This luxury event was planned and designed by Gro Designs. All the stationery was in collaboration with Stamped Paper Co (she is a genius). These photographs are by me – I’m sure the professional ones from the actual wedding are far superior.
I absolutely adore calligraphy envelope addressing. Especially when it is white calligraphy on these stunning cobalt envelopes in my new Flourished Script.
The flourished script is delicate and flowing with the classic traditional base structures. It is pretty, flirty, and interesting but not overly feminine. Order yours today!
Spring Wedding Elegance With Some Serious Flower Power was recently published! Working with a team of talented vendors on a wedding is one of my greatest joys. I adore that everyone with different talents brings their skill to a project to make a magnificent piece of collaborative art. The event will communicate all the feelings the Bride and Groom want to convey to their guests through each piece. This wedding was definitely full of thought and life! You can see more on Style Me Pretty but I wanted to shout out to my fantastic vendors and show just a bit here.
I used my Talia calligraphy for the table signs, table numbers, escort cards and place cards. The blue and taupe combination was really dreamy and kept the stationery feeling spring and full of elegance. The escort cards were displayed on the bride’s family silver serving trays. It was such a nice way to bring a bit of home into the reception.
This was the perfect set up for a spring garden stroll after the ceremony. Bows and Arrows really did a splendid job with all the floral pieces looking right at home in the gardens.
The reception tent at Arlington Hall kept the Spring Wedding Elegance With Some Serious Flower Power going. I’m a sucker for a clear top and some twinkle lights though. The low and lush florals make a perfect statement on crisp white linen covered tables.

The wedding invitations were so lovely in a palette of light blue, green, white and gold.
I addressed the wedding envelopes in grass green. The classic Olivia script was used. Isn’t the watercolor on the invitation gorgeous?! The green is a nice touch.
The day of items were super special because the bride is an equestrian. The winners ribbons idea created the seating display.
I used the Olivia script and white ink to write the guest names. They went directly on the ribbons and the number went in the center circle. It all turned out so lovely!
And just a little behind the scenes for you – ink and ribbon isn’t always a good mix so we have to “prepare the surface” in calligraphy speak. So a little insiders secret is to lightly coat with hairspray to make it a bit less slick & accept the ink without bleeding!
Since I am a Texas wedding Calligrapher- extreme hold is always a necessity 😉
