These sweet fans and menus were created for Shea Curry and Justin Levy’s wedding a couple of years ago. Their wedding was planned by Lisa Gorjestani of Details Event Planning and was an InStyle Weddings feature. The wedding was held at the fabulous Rancho del Cielo in Malibu which has a view of the ocean that goes on forever … in fact I think you can see the curve of the earth from there! Everything looked fantastic … the flowers, the tables, the decorations … all hot pink, glowing orange and a little green thrown in for even more excitement. Isabel Lawrence Photographers were lovely and generous to provide these photos so that I could share them here – thank you!

You must admit, chocolate is popular, and here is a stamp to prove it! They are available for purchase on Zazzle today. Feel free to contact me if you want a colour to coordinate or complement your event (a variety will be offered in the near future).
Always & Forever
This was one of my favourite weddings for may reasons but here are just three … it was a complete joy working with the bride and her mother, Rosalie; the event planner, Linda Howard, is the consummate professional, and I love flourishing! Inside Weddings magazine also liked the wedding of Randie Rubaum and Alan Kleinman as it was featured in their Summer 2008 issue and an image, showing the monogram I created, is still used as an image in the flash frame on their website. Here are some images of my contribution to the festivities, courtesy of and with many thanks to John Solano Photography.
Chandelier “Seating” Crystals
Making beautiful letters on paper is one thing, but making them on chandelier crystals brings calligraphy to a whole new dimension! From a 2007 wedding that was planned by Lisa Gorjestani of Details Event Planning, these crystals were presented on a chandelier for guests to find their seating assignment.
Fresh From The Archives
Just yesterday I found a wicker basket tucked away that held a couple of cute little dishes I was asked to hand letter on a few years ago. They were originally for a layout in Brides magazine and were later published in Maria McBride-Mellinger’s book The Perfect Wedding Details. Here they are filled with confetti, but what would you fill them with to make the perfect wedding favour for your guests?
Happy May Day!
One of my fondest memories of when I was a child is May Day. My mum and I gathered flowers from our garden, wrapped them in a paper cone and tied them with a pretty ribbon. When we were done we took them round to our friends. Since I was little and quick it was my task to hang the posies on their front door, ring the bell and run!
Although that time is now gone, here is my May Day bouquet for you with wishes for a lovely day!
