I was so excited to teach my second beginner’s calligraphy workshop last month! It is such a blast getting to share my love of calligraphy with others in beautiful old town Alexandria, Virginia. Guests spent the afternoon practicing calligraphy letterforms as well as learning how to create wooden signs. I love that attendees get to take home a finished product from my workshop, along with tools to keep practicing!
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 am so excited that fall is officially here, and I have the perfect fall wedding inspiration for you! Fall weddings have a beauty all their own, and this shoot with Ashleigh Bing Photography is full of gorgeous autumn wedding details that go beyond the usual fall colors. Navy, cranberry, and light pink create a beautiful and unique color palette alongside a gorgeous array of textures and finishes. From the stunning ring shots, the rustic sign, the gold tray, and the bright cranberries, The EmmaRose Agency planned and styled the perfect autumn wedding inspiration.
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!
