Calligraphy in Weddings!

This Spring, my life has been filled with weddings. Both my son and daughter were married within 7 weeks of each other. In May, my daughter and her husband were married under two big oak trees.

Afterwards, we walked several yards to the barn reception. Heidi did a great job of carrying through the barn theme.

One of her projects was the signage. She spray painted white, some old gold frames that were sitting in my studio for years. After spray painting some plywood with black chalkboard paint, she placed that in the opening of the frame.

On her wedding morning, she handed me some chalk and said “Mom, can you hand letter 5 signs for me?” Before dashing home to get dressed for the wedding,  I made it through “Welcome” and “Thank you”.


I hope this gives you a little idea for your barn or casual outdoor wedding!
