I was honored to create an assortment of calligraphy pieces for this shoot, including a full elopement-styled stationery suite. The suite featured a frosty, sea glass look for the invitation itself, and I played up the natural elements by using handmade paper, dyed to emphasize the soft, nautical color scheme of the shoot. Grey wax seals featured a marbled wax, adding a touch of elegance to the overall suite. More of the same soft hues were tied into the sand dollar place cards for the dinner table which also featured calligraphy on custom silk handmade ribbon. The large “Art of Marriage” fabric that draped front and center on the dining table featured sentimental words hand-written in calligraphy. “His” and “hers” vow books were made with handmade blue-gray paper, custom calligraphy and bound in silk ribbon.
