Today, I am happy to share photos from Sarah and Ted’s wedding day, along with photos of the calligraphy that was done for their stationery pieces. Summerour Studio was the perfect venue choice for Sarah and Ted’s fall wedding. I had the pleasure of visiting Summerour for an editorial style shoot a few years ago and fell in love with the space – the charming courtyard, and stunning views of Atlanta are just some of the highlights that make this venue a top choice for couples. I think Sowing Clover Photography captured Sarah and Ted’s day, their love, this beautiful location, and all of the details beautifully!

Instead of calligraphy for the outer envelopes, Sarah decided to add an element of surprise and a personal touch for each guest with a fun, playful, yet elegant pop of calligraphy on the inside envelope – LOVE it!!! I had so much fun doing them!

I designed two monogram styles for Sarah and Ted – one used for the map (shown above), the second one was used for their programs and other wedding decor. In addition to the monograms, Sarah wanted a “logo” with their first names done, which she used for their save the dates and wedding programs.

And here are a few more stunning photos of the wedding stationery and calligraphy taken by none other than the talented bride herself! Sarah is the owner of Foglio Press, a boutique stationery studio here in Atlanta, and her designs are so lovely! I have enjoyed collaborating with Sarah on a few projects for her brides and style shoots; and of course, bringing the ideas for her own suite to life with my calligraphy was super fun!

It is a fun time to share with family and friends, and makes for a great pre-wedding or welcome party theme.
