You guys, I just CANNOT EVEN with these gorgeous calligraphed wedding invitations. Brandi of Brandi Smyth Photography teamed up with Shannon Inman of Paperglaze Calligraphy to create these absolutely stunning French Chateau inspired calligraphy wedding invitations for a wedding in southern Louisiana. Every single detail is just so beautiful, from the custom envelope liner to the beautiful deckle edge paper. And that gold wax seal! So much yes.

From Brandi: Pulling off a french chateau inspired wedding is not an easy task when you are in southern Louisiana. But boy do these invitations set the tone! Shannon with Paperglaze Calligraphy did an amazing job. She crafted a beautiful invitation suite for the couple, even going the extra mile and customizing the envelope liner with a french love poem. The wedding colors were very subdued and light, with mixes of ivory, soft blues and gold undertones. Shannon went with a navy blue ink to complement those colors and it turned out to be a beautiful choice! To top off the invitations they were sealed with a gold wax stamp and beautifully curated vintage stamps to perfectly complement the design.

Throughout the wedding there was a French “locks of love” theme. As guests arrived, instead of signing a traditional guest book, they signed small cards attached to locks and keys and placed them on a beautiful iron gate upon entering the ceremony site. From the French inspired food and beverage selections, to the floral arrangements and vows, it was a night to remember and you definitely did not feel like you were in Louisiana. Instead you escaped for a special celebration. The venue had beautiful tall cypress trees, gravel roads, ornate fountains, lush gardens, and the land around the venue appeared to having rolling hills, even a pond with ducks and geese. It was truly an enchanting evening. Shannon hand calligraphed invitation suite tied in beautifully with the aesthetic of the day and the theme was continued throughout each and every detail.
