Whether it is the save the date or wedding invitation that your guests receive informing them of your wedding, the tone is set with that mailing. Will this wedding be formal, casual, exquisite or relaxed? To go a step further, the first thing that the guest sees is the envelope with their name and address. Again, this tells them what to expect with your wedding. Hand written calligraphy is the most elegant form of communication. When a guest sees that in their mailbox, they are GUARANTEED to stop what they are doing, open it and give it their undivided attention. An envelope with gorgeous calligraphy quietly demands attention. An event that is focused on the beginning of two lives together deserves nothing less.
Calligraphy can be incorporated into the actual wedding and reception as well. I have provided countless events with wood or acrylic laser cut names, marble tiles and agate stones as place cards, table numbers and even mirror seating charts. I personally like to work with materials that are not the garden variety. These additions are aspects that guests are not expecting and provide that “wow” factor that make your wedding a topic of conversation for years to come for all of the right reasons. All of these things can only be provided be a professional calligrapher that creates these items everyday and is constantly learning and staying informed on “tricks of the trade”. Could a hobbyist create these works of art? Of course they could. But a mentor of mine put it best when he said, “people pay a professional because they need the work to be accurate 99% of the time the first time and to be able to deal with an unforeseen issue and fix it as if it’s a walk in the park”.
As a professional calligrapher, I love what I do and obsess about every detail. Calligraphers are an interesting group in that 90% of us do not work for the money, but for the love of the art. The beauty of that is that the client is greeted with the desire for perfection that only they deserve.
