Anne + Garrett | Featured in The Knot California Magazine

Let me start by saying FINALLY! I am so happy to finally get to share details from Anne + Garrett's beautiful Shady Canyon wedding. I went to high school with Anne and while I was ditching track practice for Sprinkles Cupcakes (sorry Coach), Anne was breaking records. I was so happy to see Anne had met her match was intentionally planning her wedding from San Fran!
Anne first came to me to ask a few questions about stationery and wedding invitations. She had found a suite that she loved, but wasn't blown away after seeing the samples. Anne showed me what she was looking at and asked if I could help her decide if it was a good choice or not. I was honest with Anne, as a friend and not a client. She was about to pay a custom price tag on a non-custom invitation suite! I told her what I could potentially do for her and we began working together. I am so happy she asked me to do her paper goods! Anne had a great vision for her wedding day, with the perfect balance of traditional elegance (family style dining and attention to their guest's comfort) with modern flare (subtle floral accents at every corner and signature Moscow Mules at the cocktail hour). Anne took her plans seriously, and proofed her designs carefully while keeping me informed of her wedding plans, which made the design process more cohesive. Her and Garrett were a joy to work with and I was happy to see how wonderful their day turned out! See all the paper goods and details below.

I know… words do not do this wedding justice! The Grovers (Troy Grover Photography) did an amazing job capturing their day. For their paper, VAD designed and coordinated their stationery and paper goods. Letterpress printing by Patrick Masterson, Calligraphy by Southern Calligraphy, Vintage Stamps from Verde Studio, Twine by Paper Phine. Anne created custom olive oil escort cards for her guests that doubled as favors! One of my favorite ideas yet, unique but still cohesive with bread at each setting from the couple's favorite bakery!

Heather + Rainier | Custom Calligraphy Invitations

Happy Thursday! I am so happy to be up to speed on my blogging! I have been collaborating with Jane of Southern Calligraphy so much lately and I love it! We have a great time combining our talents, and I think our joint projects turn out phenomenal! This classic invitation for Heather and Rainier was Jane's concept, with her custom calligraphy names and elements!
The wax seal really made this traditional invitation design pop! We printed this digitally and the customizations with calligraphy and wax seal were the perfect touch. Note:  this "L" seal was all I had on hand for photos, haha.

I love the elegance of this simplistic design! You just can't go wrong with these neutral colors and use of type and hand lettering. I can't wait to share more of our collaborative work in the future! Contact Jane at Jane@SouthernCalligraphy.com for all of your calligraphy needs! I am always happy to coordinate her services with my clients as well!
