Calligraphy Styles

Playful

By Laura Lubanski We have been seeing a trend towards incorporating gorgeous hand calligraphy throughout the invitation suite, and we must admit, we’re a bit smitten! Calligraphy is such an art form and we love the idea of an actual person calligraphing your text, adding such a personal touch to your invitations! It can be used in so many different ways that it’s hard to find a reason not to incorporate this element into your suite. From super modern to very…

August 15th, 2015 New Gloucester, ME When Tony proposed in April 2014, he didn’t just give me the ring we’d picked out together. He threw in some French Champagne and Italian cookies for good measure. If there are things Tony and I love almost as much as each other, it’s great food, delicious drinks and bringing together our cultures with friends and family. Tony grew up in Arizona as part of an Italian American family and he took staple Italian…

By Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy Once upon a time there used to be a “wedding season” such as the freshness of the June Bride or the vibrancy of the autumn leaves. I’m finding now there is no real wedding season now. Weddings are 12 months a year. Which is certainly good for the wedding professionals for sure! Lately there have been a barrage of winter weddings, photo’s done wearing a faux fur shawl or shrug outside with…

August 14th, 2015 Chamberlain, ME Hope and Matt had the quintessential Maine wedding at his family’s ocean-side cottage in Chamberlain, ME. Their ceremony was on the rocks jutting into Long Cove; their reception was at the Long Cove Point clubhouse. The day was warm, sunny, and busy – a town festival, Bristol Days, was happening the same weekend as the wedding. “We had our first look at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse,” says Hope. “There were lots of people walking around and…

When I say I love you more, I don't mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us. I love you the most.

@lindsayhite

By Malinda Macari, owner of Your Dream Bridal Strapless. Cap-sleeved. High-collar. Just a few necklines present in today’s bridal fashion, sitting comfortably next to an even wider array of wedding dress lengths, cuts and shapes.

July 4th, 2015 Boothbay Harbor, ME From the start, Annie and Josh knew they wanted a destination wedding. With strong family ties in Maine, it wasn’t long before they found the perfect location along the coast for their subtly nautical nuptials. But one day wouldn’t do, so the couple chose the long July 4th weekend, which gave them the ideal scenario to spend extra time with their family and friends. A lobster bake rehearsal dinner, marine-themed gifts for the wedding…

You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.
