About 

I’m a born and raised Nashvillian, attending Harpeth Hall and dancing with Nashville Ballet during any free time, so I’ve always had a creative outlet. After graduating from Birmingham-Southern College in 2011 and retiring from ballet at the ripe age of 23, I quick realized a void for a new hobby and way to flex my creative muscles in a post-college "adult" life. I signed up for a calligraphy class and the rest is history!

 

Calligraphy started as a night time hobby, which quickly grew to addressing my family and friend’s wedding invitations, bridal showers, baby showers, birthday party's, and everything in between. I still have a full time job as a digital marketing strategist, so please keep this in mind when discussing turning around times! 

I'm obsessed with all things paper and enjoy being a small part of a bride's big day with her invitation and other paper items! I got married in June 201y, and was quickly followed by my little sister in March 2018. Needless to say, my family became engrossed in all things wedding for those two years. 

My husband Chris and I live in West Nashville with our German Shorthaired Pointer, Emmie. I enjoy listening to podcasts while addressing envelopes and find the juxtaposition of listing to true crime while working on beautiful lettering to be so soothing. When I'm not working on envelopes, I also love all things Bravo TV, the Royal Family, and trying new restaurants in town.

 

I love helping local brides, stationers, and wedding planners with all calligraphy needs; but have also worked with clients in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Texas, California, and Florida. No job is too far away! 

Please send me a note or email and let’s get started on your paper next! I'm here to help with invitations, place cards, menus, custom quotes or even addressing etiquette questions you might have!
