Thank you so much to world class photographer, Lisa Lefkowitz, for sending me the gorgeous photos for this darling wedding I worked on last September for one of my brides, Margaret. Margaret had a very specific idea of what she was looking for. She wanted placecards, envelopes, table signs, and a cake sign. I was lucky enough to get pictures of all of them today from Lisa. I just want to show how beautiful calligraphy can accent your wedding, other than just using it for your outer envelope or the placecards. Everything she chose coordinates to her colors, red and brown, which used together are bold, sultry and romantic.
This cake sign is so great. It looks just like Margaret’s cake and it lists off to the right the flavors of each tier. It has their names at the top and can also include the date or anything you’d like to put. It can be in full color, or on different paper colors, in any size on any type of sign. What an adorable way to let your guests know what delicious treats they are eating. A sign that reads “sweets” also adorns the table.
These tiny boxes are actually nerds candy wrapped up as favors. Each sign is written on white paper and mounted on a thick brown card stock that I provided for her. The bride had tons of favor ideas, and she didn’t just settle on one or two! Read on for more photos….
Of course I have to show the invitation with the calligraphy. The script style is Holly, more commonly known as Sloop.
A candy jar full of red treats greets wedding guests in their room. The script style is Bickham.
Baskets of vibrant red umbrellas, urging family and friends to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Baskets of white and red tennis balls as favors with the note, “Love All.”
The placecards are, of course, bright red…..in Bickham Script.
And finally, a basket that reads “A midnight snack” filled with late-night goodies. Margaret’s attention to detail was not only refined but completely unique as well.
