Inspiration for your road to the altar

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!

    Hi – I’m actually using Michele as well for my calligraphy (wedding in November). I’m curious as to which of the two fonts you combined because I love it! It looks awesome and I think it would compliment my invitations as well. If you don’t mind – will you share? Thanks!

    I am glad to hear you like them as much as I do :) The fonts Michele used were a combination of “fine script” and “wispy.” Hope that helps!
