Flower City Letters Wedding Calligraphy
I grew up in a suburb of Rochester and eventually gravitated toward the city. Now I live near Highland Park with my soon-to-be husband and three cats. Rochester has my heart and it has so much to offer. I love working for local clients and adding to the artistry and passion that is abound in Upstate NY. I love enhancing thoughtful words with beautiful, handwritten script. You can often find me in my studio with my calligra-cat, Olive, nearby (or on my lap…). I specialize in several styles of pointed pen calligraphy. Additionally, these styles are shown in my hand engraving.
With over six years of experience, training from calligraphy masters around the world, and 100+ happy clients, I have the ability and passion to create connection through the written word for you. After taking a book design class in grad school for my publishing degree, I realized I wanted to pursue a craft away from the computer. Moreover, I needed to create something tactile with my hands. Little did I know that calligraphy would change my life and become an enormous passion of mine.
I consider myself a lifelong student of calligraphy and engraving. I regularly take classes and practice to improve and add to my offerings. Calligraphy is often your guests’ first impression of your wedding, so I know how important it is to get it right! My craft is my passion, but I also have so much fun with it. Calligraphy can be elegant, bright, serious, profound, whimsical, and silly – whatever your mood and aesthetic for your wedding, it’s the perfect enhancer.
The Hands on Experience
Flower City Letters wedding calligraphy encompasses many items. For example, invitations, envelope addressing, place cards, and wedding signage! Additionally, I create art pieces like custom love letters, frameable wedding vows, and more. Also, I am available for live calligraphy events like personalizing stationery or items at weddings and bridal showers.
I can engrave on glass, metal, and some plastics, all by hand and completely custom. This can make great wedding favors or place cards! Consider engraved wine glasses and wine bottles. Why not have me at your next event for live engraving! Guests love seeing their personalization happen right in front of them!
