I created this monogram for my younger daughter’s wedding invitation.  Kristen and Brian used this throughout their entire wedding package.

Madelyn Marie Alexander, my great niece born in 2012, inspired me to create this utilizing the leaf letters style. I used a fine black pen and colored pencils.

I wanted to try  Lombardic Versals and so I drew this using my husband and my initials. Again, a fine black pen was used and then filled in with water color.

I am currently working on a monogram for my older daughter’s future wedding invitation.  Patrick and Beth liked intertwining their initials as well.  The one circled was OK’d by them and then I reworked it again to come up with this, see below.

This is the version that I will enlarge and refine to get the final product. I like this step of the process because in the end I have created a new piece of art.  I can do the same for you! Contact me for details.

My Daughter’s Wedding Invitation

I worked with her to design and print the entire  package for this invitation.  We made the monogram,  invite, rsvp card, picture and map.  What a great way to set the tone for a memorable wedding!

Welcome to August! Please keep checking my blog this month, I want to showcase some of my favorite projects to letter. Check back every Monday and Friday for calligraphy inspiration.

This one is special to me, I worked with the bride to design and produce an entire wedding invitation, from envelope to RSVP card. Why was it special? It was my younger daughter! She married her best friend in June.

We started with the monogram. As soon as I knew she was engaged I started doodling K & B for Kristen and Brian. Together we developed the personalized invitation of her dreams. She wanted her guests to feel excited to attend this wedding! I also did the lettering style, layout, and organized the printing. After creatively wrapping all pieces with pink ribbon, I lettered each guest’s address in gold calligraphy and licked the stamp!

It was a remarkable process and enjoyable to see the finished product.

I chose this as my post today because I want to demonstrate what I can do. I would love to help more brides. Please look at my contact page if you’re interested in having me help you design or letter your invitations or envelopes to celebrate the start to your married life.
