It's in the details...Wedding Calligraphy

After having so much fun designing my own wedding invitations, seating cards & other details, I've been dying to do more! So I was thrilled when my friend, Lindsay, asked if I could help her with a few special touches for her big day. She had a gorgeous garden themed wedding at the elegant Winterthur Estate in Delaware, and her lovely invitations from Minted had a soft, simple look featuring calligraphy. So she wanted to reflect that in a few other details for the day of.

Her first idea was to use a large mirror in place of programs at the ceremony. I hadn't seen this idea before, but loved the elegance and uniqueness of it! She purchased a 20" x 30" rectangular mirror and I hand-lettered all the bridal party names. This was definitely a new and fun experience for me to create—and I thought it looked lovely set up where guests arrived for the ceremony.

I also did calligraphy for her seating cards and table numbers—I loved the way she presented them, as a small "flower bed"—it fit in so perfectly with the theme!

Lindsay and her husband, Matt, share a love of music and had song lyrics incorporated into their ceremony and a few other places throughout the day. So I loved her idea to letter one of their favorite love-themed lyrics on canvas totes as the welcome bags for the out of town guests. And I loved creating this piece! She had them printed by a local vendor, and I think they came out great!

Was fun to be a guest and get to see all the details in the beautiful setting, and an honor to get to be part of this wonderful couples special day in this way! Congrats to the newlyweds!!
