From the time I attempted to teach myself cursive in the first grade (it looked so pretty!), I've been fascinated with the art of fine lettering and penmanship. In high school, I could often be found fastidiously copying and re-copying my notes in varying styles of handwriting. (Yes, really. Listen, I never said I wasn't a little weird.) Borderline obsessive-compulsive behavior aside, I guess it was only a matter of time before my love of the (literally) written word became more than just a casual hobby. In 2008, a friend from college asked me to address her wedding invitations, and things just took off from there! Calligraphesque was officially "born" in 2009.
When I'm not doing calligraphy, I enjoy vocal performance, theater, travel, pop culture, trivia, and spending time with family, friends, and my wonderful husband, Greg. We got married ourselves in May 2011, so I now know even more acutely all that planning a wedding (or any event) entails. As such, I try to make my process as stress-free and straightforward as possible! This is YOUR Big Day - I just want to help make it a little more beautiful.
