Here & there I am asked if "I can just write something simple". My answer to that is one of my newer styles for this year which is "Nothing Serious". It's laid back and unpretentious and is what has become my "handwriting" over the last few years. This was executed with a Micron pen in black...no inkwell, oblique pen or nib this time. Just a thin tipped marker. Granted, this is not most of what I do by a long shot but it has it's place. This bride wanted it for her laid-back wedding. I can dig it!

When I am asked by Neiman Marcus to assist them with their events, I am always elated to do so. They are extremely easy to work with and are just a great team all around. However, for this luncheon they had a few very special guests so I was honored even more so to assist. Anna Wintour, Vogue Magazine's Editor-in-Chief, along with Ken Downing, Fashion Director and Sr. VP of Neiman Marcus......Need I say more.
I take my stationery VERY seriously. I guess that's obvious. Well, I have been using wax seals on all of my correspondence for years and always receive compliments and questions. I started offering these to my clients this year and they have become one of the most popular requests...outside of calligraphy of course :)
I am proud to say that Bella Grafia has received the WeddingWire Couple's Choice Award for 2015.
The WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards® recognizes the top 5 percent of local Wedding Professionals from the WeddingWire Network throughout the United States, Canada and abroad that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards® are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 200,000 newlyweds. Awards are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: overall rating (quality), total number of reviews (quantity), review performance from 2014 (recency), and consistency of reviews from year to year (consistency). THANK YOU!
This is one of my favorite hands. This bride chose silver ink on black paper which plays into contrast which I just love right now. These look gorgeous in person as the pictures don't do them justice.
