Check out there gold calligraphy place cards, shot by the incomparable Jen Fariello. This shoot was so fun to work on!
Check out this BEAUTIFUL wedding video, featuring some amazing calligraphy projects I worked on in late May. The whole thing is just lovely -- but if you want to see my calligraphy, start around 1:56. Check out the hanging panels of fabric with calligraphy quotes, massive welcome board, food signs... SO fun!
Last week's calligraphy was all gold, all the time. Gold and I have a love-hate relationship. I LOVE the results, but I hate the finicky gold particles in the ink that don't always flow off the nib smoothly... Let's focus on the results, shall we?
You guys, this project was a beast. At first, it may not seem so difficult, but look closer. The mirror I used to create this custom calligraphy seating chart is taller than I am (more than 5 feet tall). It's about 4 feet wide. There were almost 120 names that had to be inscribed on the mirror. This mirror is extremely delicate, so moving it was an issue throughout the project. It took several hours to complete, as well as several layout option changes when I realized I was going to run out of room, and not a centimeter to spare. Also, I think I developed tendinitis in my arms from this one. ALL WORTH IT!! Check out my progress and finished seating chart below.
A recent bride that I worked with had some crazy-awesome, creative ideas for how to incorporate calligraphy into her wedding. There were huge panels of fabric that I painted quotes on, a six-foot-tall welcome sign, and this--lovely, personalized table names, which referenced local attractions and features.
