Custom logo design

After most of the smoke from fall weddings cleared, I was able to take on two really fun non-wedding projects. One I will share here today, another one on another day!
My sweet friend Robin Chandler, who runs her own photography business and associated blog, just so happened to be a photographer for the wedding of yours truly. She was so much fun to have present during the rehearsal dinner and day-of festivities, plus she's MAD talented! When I saw that she was looking for help in designing a new logo for her thriving business, I jumped at the chance. And I'm so happy with how the results turned out! Her new blog and website will roll out soon, so stay turned for more photos of her new logo design in action! Here are some shots of the finished lettering I'm about to hand off to her...


Wedding escort cards favorites

This month has brought a lot of day-of projects for my fall brides. There have been wedding signs, programs, seating charts, and LOTS of escort cards for these fall weddings. I've been able to work on a great variety of styles, colors, and quantities of escort cards -- white, black, colored, tradition, fun, and everything in between. Here are a couple of my favorite wedding escort cards projects from the past month.


Custom calligraphy seating chart

I had a wonderfully creative bride commission me to create a custom calligraphy seating chart for her wedding on an art print that she purchased. I was highly nervous about this calligraphy job -- no room for error -- but it turned out really nicely! Check it out below -- finished and framed:

Black escort cards | white calligraphy

I'm trying to do a better job of posting regularly on this blog. The truth is, I have been so busy with calligraphy projects, it's hard to remember at the end of the day to update this blog!Anyhoo...
Today I wrapped up one of my favorite projects to date - black escort card envelopes with white calligraphy, with white and black table numbers.

I realized yesterday when visiting a local stationary store with which I work frequently that my book of samples being stored and shared there with potential clients was probably in need of an update. Thus an excuse for me to spend a few hours on some new samples! The one below is one of my favorite - rich, iridescent amber envelopes with thick black ink (courtesy of my Hunt 99, one of my fave nibs). I love how it (and most of the other new samples) turned out and I'm dropping my book of calligraphy samples back off today for future brides to fawn over, and hopefully to earn me some more business.
