One thing that was important to me in planning our wedding was the paper; I had a specific look I wanted in my head pretty much from the beginning that I wanted to be cohesive throughout all of the invitations and other related items. I worked with Shannon of Charlotte's here in Raleigh, who realized that none of the samples were fitting my vision, and promptly set out to find the right calligrapher for me. Not only did she find the original calligrapher from the uncredited inspiration pic (which is essentially wizardry), but ultimately she found our amazing calligrapher Caitlin of Charlie Whiskey. Caitlin took my inspiration picture and created what I think is a gorgeous balance of modern and classic for our invitations. It was important to me to follow some elements of tradition and formality, but I wanted a unique, almost handwritten effect. 

Shannon helped me navigate the formalities and making sure everything looked good together, and I think what Caitlin did is amazing. It's exactly what I wanted. I love her work so much that we also had her do the menu and place cards for the seated dinner after the ceremony at Alys Beach. The menu is everything. I loved it so much I practically want to frame it; we had those done through Paperbuzz and they had them printed in a gorgeous light, raised gold. I could eat them. She also did a very special custom song quote that was my gift to my hubs, and it means the world to us. I can't thank Charlotte's + Charlie Whiskey + Paperbuzz for all of their hard work and the beautiful results!
