If you have been following my work lately, you know that I have been delving into color in a major way. Coincidentally, a few months ago I was asked to be a part of this gorgeous styled shoot for Carolina Bride Magazine. I didn’t know it at the time, but the concept was “It’s a Colorful Life” – how perfect! Melissa from Atheneum Creative definitely made my spot calligraphy colorful with her invitation suite, menu, program, and all the fun vinyl decals she designed for the shoot. Lauren Rosenau photographed everything beautifully. When I first saw the photos, I was so excited. Unfortunately, a lot of the pieces didn’t wind up in the magazine, but you can see some more of them here and I’m so happy to be able to share even more of them in this post.
I love these clear acrylic chairs with the decals for “Bride” and “Groom.” Such a unique and fun way to add some color and personalization while still keeping a contemporary and clean look. The escort cards were also made of a clear acrylic with my decals of my calligraphy – a cool way to incorporate more of the same material and do something a little different for the escort card display. My favorite part of the shoot were the decals on the floor creating an aisle runner, which served as a map of their relationship from their first meeting to the wedding. It’s so fun to see what some black calligraphy on paper, scanned into a computer, can actually turn into. I’m so lucky to work with such creative people! They really make my work shine.
