I’ve discovered so many great calligraphers over the years…here are just a few of my favs!
Such an amazing idea from the ladies at Hello Handmade…if you’ve got some romantic notions in your head but lack the beautiful handwriting…send it along to them and Betsy will write it for you! I can attest that her handwriting is perfection and will make anything you say look gorgoeus! They’ll even mail it to your Valentine for you! They go live in their shop today, so pick one up…I have a feeling they’ll go quick.

Invitations: Jaime Viñas of Viñas Design
Jaime did our invitations as a favor to me since I work with his wife, and I love how they turned out! We worked together throwing around ideas, and ended up with a set that truly reflected Brooklyn, from Coney Island, to the cherry blossoms of Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Everything was very elegant, while staying very modern and crisp.
Calligraphy: Betsy Dunlap
Betsy’s calligraphy was the talk of the town once invites went out, and I was very pleased with how everything turned out! She did our outer envelopes in a custom green, which went perfectly with the ink used to print the invites. People told me they hung up the envelopes on their fridges along with the invitations, so that definitely says something! I asked her to also do our table numbers and some signage, which of course also turned out beautifully. She was a dream to work with!
