navy blue was the theme

I tend to peruse the photographer's websites every once in awhile to see if I can catch a glimpse of work I have created for brides. Thankfully the photographers leave about photographic evidence of creations that once existed.

Wax Seal Place Cards

A bride I recently worked with created a unique way to present her place cards.

I created the white place card with a bone folder then wrote with black ink in a Copperplate font on the lower portion of the card.  She followed up with a red wax seal incorporating her soon-to-be initial on the top of the card.

A beautiful and elegant way to do a place card or escort card for your occasion!

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.

whimsical place cards

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."

Down to the place cards.

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.
