I'm looking for a calligrapher for a quaker-style wedding
certificate. The ceremony is in May so someone who can do magic,

I would like to recommend Tracy Joe Calligraphy. Tracy is

free to email me.

Try Chris Lauer for all of your calligraphy needs. She's very artistic and a great
I would like to have our wedding vows calligraphied with an
artful border and mounted. I am thinking of something in the Art
& Crafts or Art Nouveau styles. So I need someone who is both a
calligrapher and an artist. Any recommendations?
What a wonderful way to honor your commitment! My friend Lee
Gorton is a calligrapher/artist and created our wedding
invitaions/save the date magnets, etc. Her number is 234-
2065. Although she is knoweledgeable in the art styles you
want, I suggest bringing examples of things you like from these
I'm a BPN member who's also a calligrapher/artist. Your project
sounds like a nice diversion from addressing hundreds of
envelopes for weddings! Please email me if you might be
interested in discussing your project, and I also have a website
with samples which I can direct you to. Thanks!
