Gorgeous Handwritten Calligraphy for Upscale Weddings and Special Events

Other Pieces of Artwork October 31, 2008

Although much of what I do involves weddings, I also spend some time doing other things as well.  Here are some samples of artwork I have done this year.

I wrote a charter out for an organization at Texas A&M.


A woman had a baptism gown in her family for over 100 years and each child in her family had worn it for their baptism.  I wrote out each baby’s name and birthday.  Here’s what the final piece looked like.


I wrote out a family history for a family.  I usually do genealogy charts but this family history had several missing links so this was the alternative we came up with.


This piece, “A Seeker of Refuge” was written out for a man who wanted to honor his friend with kind words at a retirement celebration in Tennessee.


Recent Samples of Wedding Envelopes October 22, 2008

Most of what I spend my days doing involves addressing envelopes.  It doesn’t sound glamorous, but it is my favorite thing to do!  I would rather address envelopes than do most anything else (other than spend time with my husband or friends, I’m not that weird!).  So I thought I’d post some very recent samples of weddings I’ve done the in the not-so-distant past.





Disney Fairytale ABC Event

I’m involved with a networking organization called the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC).  Periodically I’m a showcase vendor at meetings, meaning I make nametags, etc, to show Wedding Coordinators as well as other vendors in the area, my work!  I recently made the menus and name tags for a beautiful event at Disney.  Here are some pictures from the day.

It was a wine-pairing educational event, so I embellished the name tags with grapes!

I’ve also been able to make a lot of table cards as well, which are always fun.
