the rest of our lives

A romantic note given to your soon-to-be love before the wedding ceremony is romantic and just down-right thoughtful.

You are FOR SURE going to want to go back to this love note somewhere around the 7th and 14th year of marriage to remind you of this time and why exactly you got married in the first place.

HA! I kid!!!

Sorta.

The part of working with the bride and her family directly is the reason why I love doing calligraphy. The initial contact, the getting to know them and their story and the delivery of unique one of a kind pieces in many aspects of their wedding. The calligrapher is often a person who many forget when crediting the end result of a wedding but is the person who adds special touches throughout the engagement, showers, parties and the actual grand event.  

When the end has come and we have finished all we can scroll and swish with abandon, the lasting relationships we make in the process is the best and satisfying result for me and why I continue to pick up my pen.

Never be afraid to use a whimsical element in your wedding.

When guests attend your wedding, they should know right off the bat, "This is so Alison."

This bride and her groom have a love for their Golden Retriever.

I simply wrote the names on the front of the tented die-cut out and the table number inside the fold for guests to easily find where they were to sit.
