Carrie and Ryan's Suite

I was super honored to do the calligraphy for the wedding of the brother of one of my best friends, Heather. It was such a joy to collaborate on the suite with Heather, and see them come to life. Each one was different and unique, according to the specific envelope liners, vintage stamps, and colors of wax and twine used. Congrats, Carrie and Ryan, and blessings on your new life together!

Hi Betsy,

I've tried to email you a couple of times, but they keep getting returned to me, so I hope you don't mind me contacting you here.... My name in Michelle and I have recently discovered your beautiful blog, and amazing talent.

I have been searching for the perfect script for a tattoo I am wanting to get, and came across this gorgeous piece:

Your calligraphy is divine - exactly the style I have been looking for, and I would be thrilled if I were able to commission you to design a piece for a short quote I have chosen.

Please let me know if you are willing and able!! Please email me: info@michelledupont.com.au

Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Michelle x

Beautifully done! Were the map liners in the envelope made by you two or were they pre-made? So awesome that they were unique!

Aloha Betsy, these are GORGEOUS! They must've been thrilled to get you to hand calligraph their wedding! I am such a fan of your calligraphy and always wowed at what you do. To open your mailbox and receive a beautiful envelope with your writing must be an awesome feeling. I'm wondering, whose calligraphy or handwriting are you excited about or are a fan of? That might make for an interesting post. I so want to know (^•^) Mahalo, Merissa
