It may surprise you to know that, while I'm a calligrapher based in Charlottesville, I don't always work with Charlottesville brides who are having a Charlottesville wedding. Some brides, I never even meet! One case in point: a friend of another bride who I helped with wedding invitation envelope calligraphy recently partnered with me to create her whole wedding invitation suite in calligraphy. We have worked exclusively via email and phone and, while I hate that I will probably never meet her face-to-face, it's a testament to what can be done electronically these days!
This bride's custom designed calligraphy wedding invitations arrived recently. She chose a nautical theme with navy ink and a knot that tied the suite together. I LOVE how they turned out!
