MEANT TO BE CALLIGRAPHY

To my delight, I am often asked to create chalkboard signage for wedding and events. I always enjoy the process of designing and executing in chalk and chalk ink, whether it be to create a seating chart (as I did for Shannon + Dave), bar signs (like those I created for Kelly + Kevin), welcome greetings (like the board I wrote out for Heather + Patrick) or a menu, which is what I created most recently for bride Tori’s wedding to groom Christian this past weekend.

Tori was referred to me by event designer extraordinaire Laura Ritchie of Grit and Grace and, in addition to creating adorable little hanging seating cards (shown below in a collage Laura shot during Tori and Christian’s wedding reception), Tori also asked me to use my Glade lettering style to write out a menu of the delicious meal in store for the couple’s guests. To me, the only downside to working on menus is that inevitably the mouth-watering descriptions end up making me hungry and just a tad bit jealous of the lucky guests! In any case, this particular menu was very fun to write and I am thrilled to have been able to assist with the wedding preparations for this sweet bride to her groom. Cheers, Tori + Christian!!
