The Fillmore Wedding

When I first started with Sterling Events Group, I began part-time work with the Sterling by Design division out of Charlotte. My first day on the job was an incredible experience as I began with a major install of luxe white velvety pipe and drape to completely transform The Fillmore into a dream wedding venue!

Katrina of Come + Together Events had designed this incredible space, and it was pure magic to see it all come together in time for the ceremony--with gorgeous floral arrangements, fancy linens, grand chandeliers, and talented vendors all around.

After seeing the photos online I have absolutely fallen in love with the photographer duo Steven and Lucy of Smitten and Hooked. I just can't even..they are too cute, and most importantly, their photography is simply amazing! Here is just a preview of their work from Emily and Paul's wedding, but make sure you check out the rest and the list of vendors here and here!

 
Eep how gorgeous is this couple?!
 I got to hear The Dickens Band as they were warming up pre-ceremony and I could tell that they were going to rock it all night!
Playing even just a tiny part in someone's special day is so rewarding, and I am thankful to now be a full-time part of the WinMock team, a division under Sterling Events!

R

Learning Calligraphy

If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have seen me practicing calligraphy post-Christmas, celebrating National Handwriting Day here, and even sharing a quick photo of some office inspiration.

I am constantly in awe of the talents of others when it comes to calligraphy and gorgeous hand lettering. Because of my love for this and true desire to learn calligraphy to address thank you notes and our wedding celebration invites, my Mr. bought me a kit and signed me up for Molly Jacques' class on Skillshare!

I highly recommend Molly's class for a basic introduction into calligraphy with some great tips and templates. What's fun is that you can get a $10 discount on her class by clicking here!

Practicing calligraphy takes dedication, and I would one day love to be able to scan in images available as free printables. A girl can dream, right? Until then, check out some of my inspiration and stay tuned for future printables by yours truly.

Here's a little work by Molly herself. I'm in love!
Literally everything Lauren of A Fabulous Fete letters is AMAZING. Check out the Custom Address Stamp she designed for me!
Lindsay Letters is an absolute favorite of mine--and she has such a heart of gold! In love with my inspirational T-shirt from LL seen here and here!
And this gal's lettering is totally dreamy! New Girl fans will understand.
The whimsical letters by Shannon are perfection, and you've seen one of her prints as a Wednesday Pick-Me-Up here.

And lastly, a little peek at a sign I made for my bridal shower this past weekend. It was fun being able to contribute something for the party--especially in the name of champagne!

XOXO,
R

PS just a few more days to enter my giveaway!
