I love the crisp look of black and white!  And I was thrilled to see my Belluccia calligraphy font was chosen to add to this couple’s classic look on Snippet & Ink’s blog.

It’s used on the Rehearsal dinner invite ( love the gray stripes in the background), Wedding invitation, RSVP and return envelope, as well as the program and favor bags seen in the last pic below.

DIY Montana Ranch Wedding


After looking at all of the beautiful ranch weddings I’ve seen on the blogs, I finally got to attend one myself in National Glacier Park in Montana!

DIY Ranch Wedding, Montana ranch wedding, DIY Wedding

Here’s the lovely couple: my nephew Chris and his darling new bride Erica as the new Mr. and Mrs. Cantoni.  There aren’t too many people who can pull off the “Frida Kahlo” style head piece, but with her gorgeous face, it looked stunning.  DIY Ranch Wedding Invitation, Montana Tanch wedding InvitationThe adorable DIY invitation, set the tone for this casual, fun, outdoor, ranch wedding.  The 4 page booklet included details about the beautiful surrounding area.Going to the Sun road, National Glacier Park MontanaThese photos were taken on a the “Going to the Sun” road.  Breathtaking is the only way to describe it. We even saw big horned sheep up close and personal!

Going to the Sun road, National Glacier Park Montana The wedding venue “The Rising Wolf Ranch” was as authentic a place as you can find. Think “A river runs through it”.  Some guests came for the week and took advantage of the time to hike, fish and take in all the area has to offer.  Some of us had only 3 days. Not enough time.Rising Wolf Ranch, Glacier Park, Montana, Ranch Wedding

With a beautiful garden of delphiniums, majestic mountains and big blue sky in the background, how can you go wrong?  In fact all of the wedding flowers, including the brides bouquet were picked from the ranch grounds.Rising Wolf Ranch, Glacier Park, Montana, Ranch WeddingRising Wolf Ranch, Glacier Park, Montana, Ranch Wedding

A group of talented friends and family sang the couple’s favorite song.  The ceremony was one of the most intimate I’d ever attended.  Poems were read by the siblings of both bride and groom, and a ceremonial bowl was rung to lift prayers and thoughts skyward for family members who had gone before us.

Before being exchanged, the rings were passed ( tied to a simple stick) among those gathered so each guest could give them their blessing.

Rising Wolf Ranch, Glacier Park, Montana, Ranch Wedding

In that time period, we were asked to stand and give thoughts and advice to the happy couple.  I barely got through mine without going into the ugly cry. Their vows were as non-traditional and genuine as the couple and you sensed the true nature of the words and what they meant to them.

Did I mention lots of happy tears?  My brother Jim and wife Gretchen and Erica’s parents, Mike and Connie, could not be happier with this lovely union.

 DIY Wedding Program for Ranch Wedding

The DIY program featured a creative illustration of Chris and Erica done by a friend.  It captured them perfectly!Rising Wolf Ranch, Glacier Park, Montana, Ranch WeddingThe outside reception area was decorated simply with wild flowers picked on the ranch and pom poms of various materials strung above.

We love you too, man!

A delicious assortment of one section of appetizers.  The simple presentation, butcher paper with names of the cheeses written nearby was all that was needed.  The blueberry encased goat cheese was my favorite!

Out of town guest bag, DIY Ranch weddingTote bags for guests  with the park’s logo and couple’s wedding date included a book, soap, hand-made by the bride, handmade sea salt caramels, a souvenir coffee mug, granola bars and a note card asking for marriage advice.

The string of flags from the invite was seen on the itinerary, advice cards and room signs for those staying at the ranch.  Others, like me, stayed at the lovely Izaak Walton Inn not far away, which would also make a lovely wedding venue.

Best of all, I was there with all 6 of my siblings and my two sons!  You can’t beat that for good company. 

There was so much to see in so little time.  We all agreed National Glacier Park will be added to our bucket list to explore fully.

Cheers to the happy couple, Chris and Erica!  We wish you all the love you can create in what will seem too short of a lifetime.

Texas Tote for OOT Guest and Gift for Bridesmaids


Texas tote bag, OOT Bag idea, Texas Hand bag, Texas Purse, Lettering on Hand bagSpent a fun weekend with my two sisters and as usual, a trip to Sam Moon was in order.  If you don’t live in Texas and aren’t familiar with this “girl heaven” check out their online store.

While there, my younger sister, a true purse aficianado, found this darling patent leather Texas city themed tote for 10.99!  I think it would make a perfect Out of Town Guest bag for Texas brides.  It’s large enough to fit all the necessary items : water bottles, snack bars, local info, a wedding itinerary.  What a great gift for them to remember your wedding and the fabulous weekend!  You could also use it to present gifts to your bridesmaids. They could use it to keep essentials for the day of the wedding…makeup, jewelry, comfy shoes for dancing.  I tried to find it online but had no luck.  But if you live near any of these Texas cities; Dallas, Fort Worth, Frisco, Houston, Austin and the Woodlands, just check out your local Sam Moon!

Welcome Sign for Out of Town Guests

Welcome Sign for guest room

Have guests arriving? It’s always a nice idea to make them feel welcome in small ways.  This is the hand-lettered sign I made for Emily, our guest from last weekend.  For non-calligraphers, a beautiful font could be used. I think this would be a great idea to put in the hotel room for out-of-town wedding guests.  Perhaps include a small note tag suggesting they take it home and put a pic from the wedding in the frame. Or you can include a pic ( of the bride and groom or the guest at your wedding) in your thank you note to be put in the frame. Ask your photographer to get a pic of everyone as they arrive at the reception or get group shots at the tables.  Just one small way to make your out-of-town family and friends know how much you appreciate their presence:)

“Oh, Hello Friend” Lovely Package Exchange


In any gift giving occasion, the presentation is just about as important as the gift itself.  Because I believe this, I was happy to sign up for the lovely package exchange hosted by Oh, Hello Friend.  I love this event because it celebrates beautiful, creative packaging and I had a lot of fun putting mine together. My swap partner was Bonita Rose and this is the final product I sent her:

wrapped package

As you can see, I decided on a silver and gold color theme.  I found a glittery, silver box and wrapped it in a big, gold ribbon with a matching garland accent and a silver ‘B’ initial.

Opened package

The first thing seen after opening the package is my hand lettered note with the same shiny, gold ribbon.

contents of package

For the contents, there are several cute, crafty things (some are from Paper Source)  I found to match Bonita’s vibrant and colorful style.   I included different kinds of lace and paper tape, colorful flower cut outs, muslin bags, and a stamp set.

What I enjoyed most was creating these personalized and hand-lettered tags.

hand lettered tags

My inspiration came from quotes found on Bonita’s blog.  These can be used as bookmarks, gift tags, decoration, etc.

Calligraphy and glitter note

I also created this custom greeting card using my calligraphy and Stickles glitter glue in platinum.

hand-lettered note

I hope this bright package helped spread some holiday cheer!  There is nothing better than a beautifully wrapped gift and I had a blast putting this together.

Many thanks to Danni at Oh, Hello Friend  for taking the time to coordinate this exchange! I could easily see using this for an out-of-town guest welcome gift or hostess gift. What other ideas do you have for its use? If you would care to leave a comment there’s a special gift for you!
