My other exciting news is that Erin of Lucky-Luxe is designing "Save the Date" postcards and invitations for me. Her work is fabulous! Recently on her blog she posted "Save the Date" postcards she created for another bride, who my wedding planner Sarah is also working with, and has a navy/blue/yellow color scheme too. Even though I don't know them, from her post I feel she really captured the essence of the couple, and beautifully set the tone for their upcoming fall wedding. I can't wait to see what she creates for us!!!

Growing up I always appreciated beautiful handwriting. My mother recalls that if I didn't like the way a word looked on paper, or caught myself misspelling a word, I would erase the whole word and sometimes the whole sentence, just to make it perfect. I also tried my best to copy the sweeping strokes of others whose writing I admired.

Today I find myself admiring the work of calligrapher Betsy Dunlap, who I am excited to announce, is available to work with me for my wedding! No doubt, the details will be amazing!
