Katie’s Rustic Italian-Inspired Calligraphy Wedding Stationery

You already know about my deep and abiding love for beautiful calligraphy – I’m in constant awe of those with the talent for such beautiful lettering! Photographer and aspiring calligrapher Katie Decker created these gorgeous calligraphy invitations and stationery for her wedding in April, all inspired by her love for all things Italian. The pieces include rehearsal dinner invitations and menus, along with invitations, menus, and place cards for a bridesmaid luncheon. So pretty!

From KatieMy inspiration came from my love of anything Italian and our planned Italian honeymoon. I chose to go the rustic route and used a transparency paper which wrapped around a lovely deckled edge ivory paper. My lettering was therefore a little on the “rustic” side as well to fit with the theme – meaning it was not by any means perfect, which is what I love so much about hand lettering.

My mother and I also threw a luncheon in honor of my bridesmaids. The inspiration was a light Southern 1920s feel that stemmed from my wedding theme. I wanted to keep everything casual, but still sophisticated at the same time. We had a light Southern fare (since the wedding was in Savannah) and I really wanted the invitations to reflect the light but elegant feel.
