Planning a wedding isn’t for the faint of heart.
You have a million things to get done, and not enough time in the day.
You want to actually enjoy being engaged and get excited for marriage.
You don’t even know where to start and there are so many options to choose from.
You can do anything, but you can’t do everything.
Planning your wedding is so much easier when you have a creative team rallying behind you. Professional wedding calligraphy is a game changer.
You’ll check a time consuming task off your list, you’ll have more time (and headspace) to actually spend with your fiancé and you can rest assured knowing that you’ll get a beautiful end result.
You can have peace of mind knowing your wedding details will be handled with the utmost care and intention and spend more time getting excited about marriage while spending less time stressing about the details.
We’ll start with an initial phone meeting to discuss your needs, budget, and vision. I create custom pricing quotes for each couple, but on average my couples spend around $600.
After I’ve researched and sourced supplies to get you the best value, we’ll set up another phone call and talk through your custom pricing proposal.
Once all your questions are answered and we’re on the same page, you can reserve your date by signing my contract and submitting a deposit. Then, we'll get started creating your stationery!

Words from my clients
“If you're ever in the market for a calligrapher, I can't recommend Vivian enough! Over the last several months, Vivian and I have exchanged over 200 emails as I planned for our wedding and her warmth, patience, openness, creativity and work ethic have been such a gift during this season!"
Ashley, New York
“I absolutely adore Vivian’s work! I ordered 2 beautiful custom banners from her and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the service, the fast shipping and the quality of the banners! They were a huge hit at the wedding. Thank you, Vivian!”
“Vivian did such a beautiful job with this custom calligraphy piece. Super personal touch for my sisters upcoming wedding! It was a gift for her shower, and is the lyrics of one of the songs to be sung at her wedding and includes drawing of her wedding flowers! It's perfect. Thanks Vivian!”
“Vivian's work is beautiful and unique, which is more than enough to justify a five-star review, but she was also very responsive and thorough in resolving a shipping issue (the cause of which was entirely out of her control.) Highly recommended!”
