As an artist and a designer, inspiration and passion must be present at all times, otherwise, the authenticity of what we create diminishes. As a creative who also battles with ADHD, I easily get bored of the same old thing. In the wedding industry, there is often a lot of the same, mainly as a result of Pinterest which is both the best and worst thing that could have ever happened to the wedding industry.
While I love making escort charts, welcome signs, and hand lettering envelopes, there is something to be said about getting the opportunity to push the boundaries of what one can do at a wedding. When Naseem of Naseem Events reached out to me to participate in a styled shoot featuring some of my hand-lettering, I was over the moon. With a little direction, and the trust from her to create something truly unique and one of a kind, I was able to produce these awesome hand-lettered name cards that I then laser cut into oak.
To complement the place cards, I designed and hand-lettered a vellum invite suite detailed with metallic thread and gold wax seals. While invitations are not my formal area of service, I loved tying in the little details and adding to the bigger vision of this stunning piece.
As a result of the visionary brilliance of Naseem, as well as the talented eye to beautifully capture it on film by Danyelle of Danyelle Dee Photography, this styled wedding shoot was featured on White Magazine
