It is not very often that I get to attend weddings that I have done calligraphy for. This one was a rare exception. And it was a good one to attend! Stef and I have been friends forever. Literally. Our mothers became close friends in college and we were born on the same day! We grew up playing together at family get togethers, wound up going to the same college, and even lived in NYC at the same time.
Stefanie and Jonah got married at the Ojai Valley Inn last September. The ceremony was beautiful and very personal, under a huge oak tree. And the reception was in the Herb Garden at the resort – it was truly magical to sit under cascading plants and twinkly lights, eating delicious food and listening to speeches from the very close newly formed family. Not to mention the band and the party – I may have had a little too much fun.
Stefanie has very simple and elegant taste, and she wanted understated, slightly casual, yet beautiful calligraphy. We used my Amy style in a taupe ink, and the escort cards stood in trays full of lavender to echo the lavender in the garden. I was happy to lend my hand for this beautiful event.
Congrats Stef and Jonah!
