Cat & Evan
Have you ever been to an Italian wedding? If not, add it your bucket list because it’s one of the best things ever. Especially when you know the bride and groom. Over the past few years, I’ve been not only doing calligraphy for more weddings each year, but attending them as well. It’s such an honor when your friends ask for your professional help on their biggest day.
Cat & Evan’s day was nothing short of perfect. It was perfectly them in every way. It radiated with love, traditions, and laughter. I’m so thankful to have been a small part in their biggest day.
For their table numbers, we knew that many of their tables would have large raised vases, while some would have shorter ones. We needed the table numbers to stand out among the variety of vases and florals, but not stand out too much. I also wanted to make sure that the wood we used for the other signs would match these table numbers as well. I attached white paper to these tall and skinny wood boards. I then wrote each table number in a grey calligraphy and used gold foil on the edges to give them a little more shine.
For the other paper tented cards we made, I added the same grey calligraphy and gold foil to match. These were used for the dessert table which had homemade desserts from the bride’s family! More deliciousness below!
They provided their guests with little baggies for take home cookies! You better believe mine was stuffed full of those bad boys for a little hangover treat the next morning.
How fun is there wedding hashtag?
As soon as this sign was made, I immediately wrapped it up and put it away. Cat’s grandfather had passed away almost a year before her and Evan got married. If there’s anything to remember about Italian’s it’s their fierce love for family (and carbs). Her grandparents were so special to her and I know it meant a lot to honor them on their wedding day. Knowing this, made this sign and ultimately this table display, especially emotional.
Cheers to you Cat & Evan – you’re day was truly something magical!
We also created a welcome sign, late night snacks (Mona Lisa subs!), and other various signs.
