This was one of my very favorite weddings to do calligraphy for this year! It was a small guest list and all of the place cards and programs were calligraphed in gold gouache on slate card stock. The programs take quite a while to layout and space correctly but I was really excited about how they turned out.
But sometimes...the US Postal Service...they fail you.
My second shipment of carefully spaced and lettered programs were delayed on their way across the Pacific and I quickly realized they would not make it to the couple in time for the wedding. Fortunately for me, the bride and groom were so sweet and laid back about the situation and settled for a digital design to be printed.
Fortunately the crisis was averted and they turned out beautifully!
