I am thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous warm weather wedding today! We are literally experiencing sub-zero temperatures right now so Meredith and Mark's warm May wedding day and outdoor reception at the Larchmont Yacht Club sound so dreamy! When Nicole Anderson contacted me about doing the calligraphy for Meredith’s wedding invitations, I was so honored (Nicole’s work is AMAZING!). The gold letterpress calligraphy paired so beautifully with the classic navy and white invitations and navy calligraphy on the envelopes. Then I got to chat with the sweet bride Meredith about all of the unique calligraphy pieces she wanted to incorporate on her special day. Since the venue was a yacht club, she wanted her calligraphy pieces to have a nod to her nautical venue. My favorite were the sea glass calligraphy placecards!
Happy New Year from Allison Dee Calligraphy! While I am always sad to see the beauty of the Christmas season end, I do enjoy the fresh start the comes with a new year! Did you get engaged over the holidays? I am so excited to share with you about one of my favorite pairings for your engagement, wedding, and anniversary photos - calligraphy and ring boxes! (And check the bottom of my post for a GIVEAWAY!!) A beautiful ring box is an absolute must to showcase your gorgeous wedding or engagement ring in your photos. You can pair it with a special custom calligraphy piece, cherished wedding heirloom, or even your wedding invitation suite. Also, for wedding planners and photographers, this is the perfect addition to your photo shoot necessities!
Let’s talk about one of my all-time favorite topics -- food! Food is going to be an important part of your wedding, right? After all, “A party without cake is just a meeting” (Thanks Julia Child!). So let’s talk about wedding menu calligraphy!
I know many people associate calligraphy signs with weddings, but they can be customized to fit any event! I’ve done calligraphy for anniversaries, engagements, baby showers, birthdays, and today I’m sharing some of the most fun and special calligraphy signs I’ve had the privilege to do! This pregnancy announcement shoot is with Alyssa of Ginger & Blooms and her husband, Kyle. Alyssa and Kyle have an emotional story about how they dealt with infertility and eventually chose IVF in order to get pregnant. She has shared all about her journey on her blog if you want to read more. So this shoot was definitely a big celebration of this coming baby boy! I love the neutral tones Alyssa chose to use, and how she styled the calligraphy pieces in so many different ways! And Mikaela Marie Photography worked her magic to take the most beautiful photos! I can’t wait to meet sweet little Coleson in December!
