I was so excited to meet with new bride, Whitney, yesterday! I loved hearing her ideas! Whitney is planning a Spring 2012 wedding and has a beautiful vision for a lowcountry inspired wedding Invitation and Save the Date. I’ve just finished up a couple Save the Date designs which we will print on a smooth matte stock with a patterned back held in a ribbed kraft envelope. Whitney’s colors are as she describes them: “soft gray, ivory, blush pink, green, taupe. All things neutral!” I can’t wait to get to work on her Invitation which we’re going to do in an all-script font in this same neutral-tone palette!
I love love love calligraphy! It is one of those arts that just amaze me. I can sit and watch you tube videos of calligraphers for hours. So I’m always so excited when a bride comes to me wanting to use custom calligraphy in her design. January bride, Paige, wanted a full calligraphy hand-drawn map for her Save the Date. I suggested Jennifer Cota of Pretty Pen Jen for this project. Jen has a fun flourished youthful style that I thought would be perfect for this! Here is the postcard style Save the Date that will be going out soon!
