Happy 2013 to everyone!

I was thrilled to see my client’s wedding featured recently on Style me pretty’s blog.

My part in this lovely event was addressing the envelopes and hand lettering the place cards in my Belluccia script.

Just a small part.  But such a pleasure to contribute in any way to this cozy, intimate New York City wedding.

Calligraphy Seating Chart


I recently had the pleasure of creating a Calligraphy Seating Chart for a wedding.

I always love to see the process of something coming together.  So I thought I’d share mine with you.

Calligraphy Seating Chart, Calligraphy, Wedding Seating Chart, Wedding Signs, Calligraphy font, Cursive font, Script fontFirst it starts with a pencil layout.  This type of project requires a great deal of layout as it is 22″ x 28″ and has 4 rows of 20-22 names.

Calligraphy Seating Chart, Calligraphy, Wedding Seating Chart, Wedding Signs, Calligraphy font, Cursive font, Script fontSo here’s my layout sheet.  I’ve also played with the bride and groom’s names at the top.  Although I ended up changing the design a little.

Calligraphy Seating Chart, Calligraphy, Wedding Seating Chart, Wedding Signs, Calligraphy font, Cursive font, Script font

Now it’s time to start using pen and ink to fill in the names and header. Here is a pic showing one column of names done and part of the second. I’m working closely from the typed list, blocking the names below the one I’m working on to avoid mistakes in spelling.

Calligraphy Seating Chart, Calligraphy, Wedding Seating Chart, Wedding Signs, Calligraphy font, Cursive font, Script font

Since the names were listed alphabetically, the way the names broke up left a larger space at the bottom of the third column.  This is the perfect opportunity to add a little illustration to the piece.

Because I laid everything out in advance, I was prepared for this and had created a design that fit nicely.

Here is the finished piece mounted on foam core.  It was then placed in a 22″ x 28″ frame for presentation at the wedding.

If you have any other questions about how this was done, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Have a Mega Monday!

Wedding Program and Placecards on Wedding Chicks blog


It’s always fun to spot my cursive font Belluccia used in a beautiful way.

This wedding program and place card design were seen recently on the Wedding Chicks blog. They were both designed by Julie Goette of TenFourPaper.

I fell in love with the colors and venue of this wedding in St. Louis.

The blush pink and white flowers looked so light and beautiful.

For the tables, the bride and groom named each one for a special neighborhood or landmark in St. Louis and New York.

Then each person at the table had a different smaller picture as a keepsake.  Cool idea!

Coco Chanel Wedding with Belluccia


I’m completely enamored with this Coco Chanel and floral ombre themed wedding from The Event Essentials.

Colorful flowers and delectable ruffle cakes contrast beautifully with the vintage style.

I am particularly in love with all the amazing wedding signage using my cursive font, Belluccia. Check out these great pics!Belluccia font, Calligraphy font, Coco Chanel themed  invitation, black and white invitation, wedding font, cursive font, fancy font, script font

I love the crisp black and white invitation!  The satin ribbon and rhinestone pin add a nice touch.  Love the way they created the date with my numbers and flourishes.  And I’m not quite sure what the grey metallic backing is made of but isn’t it cool looking?

These adorable perfume bottle inspired place cards are a whimsical addition. I love how Belluccia was used for the word “Mr. or Mrs.” It’s a perfect pairing with the simpler block font.  The white Parisian inspired dresser is the perfect display piece for them.

How amazing is this cake! The striking purple colors blend beautifully in the floral ombre design.

Thumbprint Tree Guest Sign


Tree thumbprint signs are a great alternative to guest books.  When completed, the sign, filled with guests’ thumbprints and signatures, becomes a lovely memento of the special day.

It was a pleasure to be asked to create this for an upcoming wedding– I love contributing unique touches like this.   guest book, thumbprint tree, wedding signI chose a tree from my collection of personal photographs.  This one happened to be from the Dallas Arboretum. I drew the tree on a small scale and then had an enlarged print made to 24″x 36″.  I then used my light table to ink in the tree on archival art paper. This size tree will fit up to 300 thumb prints.

Additional details include:  the couples’ names and date, as well as their initials “carved” in the heart on the trunk.  On the second lowest limb, I drew bride and groom birds.  They’ll add their thumb prints in blue.

I did some online research to find the best ink pads to use for the prints and landed on Distress Ink.  The ink promises to create an aged look on paper and will add a nice combination of colors. The Pigma Micron .03 size archival ink pens are also suggested for this project.

guest book, thumbprint tree, wedding sign

I also created this sign instructing guests to “leaf” their thumb print and sign their name.  The bride and groom will leave their prints and signatures here to demonstrate for the guests.

I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s all filled with using two colors of green ink pads.  I’ll be sure to post a pic.

Happy Wedding Kate and John!

Wedding Signs at National Stationery Show 2012


Check out these lovely pictures on Oh So Beautiful Paper’s blog.  They were taken at the National Stationery Show, a wonder land of paper goods!  I was delighted to see my cursive font, Belluccia,  and flourishes used in these wedding signs and invites from Page Stationery in their Stationery Show debut.

 They are a great addition to any wedding.  They can be used in so many ways and for so many things — the back of bride and groom chairs, favor table, just married sign for the back of the car to name a few.  They are printed on 120# paper and have different sayings on each side.   In this pic, they’ve added a coordinated background paper and ribbon. Check out the whole set on their website

The simplicity of this card is lovely and the flourish pulls the design together.  It would make a beautiful program cover.

In this close up pic the hand lettered style of Belluccia becomes more apparent.

If you want them ready made, these lovely signs are available at Page Stationery and include 7 wedding day signs and 24 tented table numbers. ( Look under Wedding Accessories)

A wedding font in this style is a great alternative to hand lettering when budget restrictions can’t allow the cost of a calligrapher.

If DIY is more your style, you can purchase Belluccia and make them yourself!

Chalkboard Signs for Rustic Country Wedding


I never know what DFW Events is going to ask me to do next, but I always know it’s going to be something fun and unique!  So it was no surprise when I was asked to make these rustic chalkboard signs for a recent Texas wedding.

This 4 foot tall seating chart displayed the southern themed table names and seating assignments.  A hand drawn rope adds a whimsical touch.

Rustic wedding signs,calligraphy, lettering on chalkboard, chalkboard signs, DIY wedding signs, hand lettering

These boards were custom made to fit the quantity of names as well as withstand outdoor conditions ( think wind!).  They were displayed against barrels and bales of hay, adding to the country look. ( The plastic protecting the edges eventually came off:)

Rustic wedding signs,calligraphy, lettering on chalkboard, chalkboard signs, DIY wedding signs, hand lettering

Small chalkboards were used to display table names at the wedding’s reception.  The use of names instead of numbers added to the Texas theme.

It was fun to make these rustic Bride and Groom signs.  The hand drawn rope further carries the country decor.

And what’s a country wedding without a delicious s’more?  In a similar rope style I created this adorable sign for the reception’s S’more Bar.

I love contributing to creative weddings like this.  These chalkboard signs create a custom look and are a great addition to any wedding.

I’ll be sharing DIY pics in a future post so you can create your own signs.

Beautiful Maui Wedding Invitation with Belluccia Font


Loved finding this  Style Me Pretty post with an invitation featuring my cursive font, Belluccia.  It was designed by  Bradley and Lily Fine Stationery.  This beautiful wedding took place in the breathtaking Maui countryside.  The gorgeous photography was done by  Christie Pham Photography . ( Sorry the link to her website seems to be having problems.)

“Taking inspiration from the location, the bride  defined her wedding style as upcountry elegance. To set the stage, she commissioned an illustration of the vine-covered arch that would welcome the guests to the ceremony and would also serve as a symbol of their new life together. The illustration was letterpressed onto a wood veneer band and  wrapped around their crisp, navy and cream suite of letterpress wedding stationery.  At the wedding, the mix of exposed rustic wood tables, lace runners and burlap combined with elegant and lush florals  created a graceful and welcoming balance. Guests were guided into the reception along a log path which revealed the setting and a spectacular view overlooking the Maui countryside and ocean beyond.

Custom coffee cup holders are a fun  place to use the custom illustration of the vine covered arch with the couple’s initials added in the center.
