Well beach season is officially upon us, so I’m throwing it back to my very first styled shoot for Allison Dee Calligraphy, but still one of my favorites! Featured on Burnett’s Boards, this wedding inspiration is simple and rustic, but has the most unique color palette that comes out in the gorgeous flowers! I love the custom calligraphy pieces that Alyssa from Ginger & Blooms dreamed up for me to create, including the stone place cards in the tablescape, the fabric banner for the couple’s photos, and the watercolor touches on the invitation suite with a nod to the nautical venue! And if nautical wedding venues make your heart sing, be sure to check out this yacht club wedding! All the magical photos here are by the incredible Lauren Werkheiser Photography.
This anniversary photo session is BREATHTAKING, you guys. I honestly don’t even know how else to put it. It reminds me a bit of Downton Abbey and Tara is such a classic beauty. My husband and I have not had any professional photos taken since we got married 8 years ago and this totally makes me want to book an anniversary session!
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!
