Inspiration for your road to the altar

Pretty Presents

December 5, 2008

Bernard Maisner is famous for his beautiful calligraphy and now (well, it’s news to me at least) he put his beautiful script on other products as well. The wrapping paper above is so sweet I am not sure I would be able to use it! It’s $18 for a 5 ft roll, so you would have to do something special with it for sure. I am thinking you could cut out a square of the print and possibly put it in a small frame to go above your mantel every year? Perhaps cheesy, but it’s just so pretty! As are these umbrellas, which are definitely a little more pricey but equally as lovely:

Escort Cards

September 16, 2008

We decided to go with the wishing rock idea for the escort cards, and once again Michele Clark came through with some beautiful calligraphy for the cards!

I can hardly wait to see how they look all laid out on the table! The large glass container for the rocks will be in the middle, then there will be two hydrangea arrangements on either end. It is so surreal to see it all finally coming together…


Happy Day!

July 10, 2008

I arrived home to a package last night…our envelopes are back from the calligrapher! It hasn’t been a great few weeks in terms of wedding plans, so having the envelopes in my hot little hands was better than Christmas. It pained me to blur out any of the information, so I took some pictures of our inner envelope (you need one to keep, after all!) so you can get an idea of just how beautiful they are…
Based on the glowing recommendations from Mrs. Onion, we used Michele Clark in NYC. I honestly can’t say enough about her – she’s so great to work with, had the envelopes back to us earlier than expected, and even blended two of her regular fonts together for us because I am an indecisive freak and couldn’t pick one. We also did something a little different and opted to have Michele print the return address on the back flap of our envelopes, instead of having them letterpressed: I LOVE how they turned out! They’re truly so pretty that I don’t want to send them out :) Michele doesn’t have a website, but you can reach her via email at calligraphybymichele (at) verizon (dot) net. She books up early, so plan to call her in advance!
