Well here we are again, February and the start of the official “wedding season.” Before life gets too crazy here at the LH Calligraphy studio, I thought I would take the afternoon to figure out my blog, something I have been meaning to do forever….or at least the past few months!

To start I thought I would feature these compasses for a Santa Barbara Wedding I did several months ago for the lovely Liz Dennery Marks of Dennery Marks PR in Beverly Hills. Her photographer, Jennifer Skog, was kind enough to send a complete set of photos from the wedding. Here are some my favorites. The compasses were definitely a favorite of mine. They are so unique, rose-hued, with each person’s name and table number in my personal favorite script, Bickham Swash Capitals. I adore this script, with all its elegant swirls.

And finally, here are her menus. Each one was printed with a compass at the top to match her letterpressed invitations and mounted on a thick silver card stock. Add a belly band around the middle with each guests’ name calligraphed in corresponding Bickham Swash Caps and you have a place card disguised as a menu.
