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!

It’s Wedding Season!

BOTH of my grown children are getting married this year!  One in March and one in May – whew! I have been busily designing invitations and addressing envelopes (more on this to come).

My daughter, Heidi, is engaged to a wonderful man, Phil.  They asked me to do something special for their engagement photos.  Like many couples, Heidi and Phil took a few photos for use on their Save the Date card during their engagement shoot.  I designed a white on black, flourished Save the Date poster for them.  It was elegant, but bold.

I like the way that they were both in the picture as well as the design….which could also be used on it’s own. This is available for ‘rent’, if you would like to use the image on your card.(Photo credit: Shashank Shrestha)

The Save-the-Date sign will be up on my website soon!  Until then, call my studio if you’d like to use the sign in your photos!  I am so excited to see what other fun touches of calligraphy Heidi and I come up with.  Keep reading to check in on our progress and ideas!
