Hey everyone, i’ve been wanting to do some wedding vendor features to educate my brides, and I thought wedding calligraphy would be the perfect fit to start! I have a list of my favorite vendors I work with in the wedding industry and Becca Joas is definitely one of them. She is a calligrapher and designer based out of Medford, Massachusetts. Her delicate and elegant calligraphy makes me swoon. This girl makes magic. Becca’s style of work is the perfect fit for my brides taste.
Becca started dabbling in wedding calligraphy when she designed all of her own for her big day. She enjoyed it so much, but didn’t realize it could take off into an actual business. Little by little through friends and word of mouth it did end up turning into something more than just a hobby. Becca is a romantic, so she found being in the wedding industry a perfect fit! When I asked Becca to describe her style and brand in a few words she used some of the same words I use to describe my photography! Becca Joas Calligraphy has a soft, natural and romantic touch, and she loves helping people celebrate life’s most joyous occasions.
1. Calligraphy is timeless and romantic; the perfect fit for a wedding. I am starting to see calligraphy more and more at weddings. This is one of those trends in the wedding industry that I hope WON’T go out of style. I love that this timeless elegance is back, and I hope for good.
2. Calligraphy is versatile and covers a lot of the design you already need for your wedding. Think about using calligraphy in these areas: signs, invitations, programs, vows, wedding map, wax seals for your invitations, menus, table numbers, escort cards or even a custom wedding logo!
3. Calligraphy gives a personal touch to your day. Weddings can tend to feel a little cookie cutter at times, so adding touches to your day that have a personal feel to them is always a good idea. Your calligrapher will spend time with you to create a design that fits your personalities. Since you get this personal experience it does take time to produce, so give your calligraphy a good window of time to design your wedding so they aren’t rushed.
4. You and your guests are worth it. Your guests really do notice all the little details. I still get compliments about the decor and details I had at my own wedding.
5. Wedding Calligraphy is an investment that you can keep. I still have the calligraphy that was done for my own wedding on a mirror and on my paper goods. Calligraphy is something that makes me really happy and I don’t regret one bit investing in it. It is now my art in my own home!
