Jessica and Nathan, July 2014

It was almost a year ago in November 2013, when I was contacted by Pamela to inquire about addressing envelopes for her daughter Jessica’s wedding. She wanted a casual script for the Save-the-Dates, and a formal style script for the wedding invites. Of course I was more than happy to work with Pamela and Jessica to add a personal touch to set the mood for a special day!

I documented the progress on Instagram as I went along.

The Save-The-Dates. A casual script, using custom-mixed gray gouache for a softer look.

The invites were addressed in a more formal and classy style, also in a soft gray.

Seating cards.

Seating cards. I used a tiny vintage Esterbrook mapping nib for these and they turned out really well.

And here are some photos Pamela shared with me from the wedding day.

It was wonderful to work with Pamela and Jessica on this lovely wedding. As a calligrapher, I don’t usually get to see my work in the wedding, so I really appreciated these photos! It makes me so happy and honored to have my calligraphy to be a part of such a special day.
