weekly wrap up + wedding calligraphy

by Stephanie


Whew! NYC survived another snowstorm, so I think it’s time to kick back and settle into a snowy weekend. AC and I are pounding the pavement tomorrow looking for new apartments (fingers crossed!), so I’ve been busy selling things and gathering ideas for a fresh start in a new space. I can’t wait to start over with some new ideas and a blank canvas. Before I dive into apartment-search land for a few days, I wanted to share these beautiful hand-illustrated illustrations from Holly Hollon‘s wedding. Holly sent them over, and I was blown away by how much she did on her own.



Holly not only created the illustrations for all the invitations, but she did the calligraphy on her own and created little banners for the groom’s cake. I love seeing people apply their own skills to their big day — it always makes things feel so much more special. Holly has shared some images above and below; I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. (How sweet are those bridesmaids’ luncheon invites? Watercolored by hand, no less.) Thanks so much to Holly for sharing these details from her big day with us. All photos by Stephen Devries.

I’m heading out to make lists of rental agencies to visit tomorrow, so I’ll see you on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm! xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:
