When I was a kid I taught myself how to write calligraphy. It was the start of my obsession with pens, especially cool ones! But I am nowhere close to being as talented as the women I have met in Houston who do it. The thing I love about weddings and calligraphy is that you can have a myriad of things done for it! Wedding invitation envelopes? Gorgeous! Seating chart? Beautiful! Place settings? Lovely! There is also other signs you can do, like where to go for certain events, bar signs and instructions for the ceremony. These calligraphers can do it all. So who kills it here in Houston? Let’s dig in to these two creative calligraphers in Houston!
Kristen Leigh Lettering & Design
When I first started capturing weddings, I found Kristen’s calligraphy and I was totally enamored! I love her style and how she can turn anything from leaves to pumpkins into works of art. She also has input her calligraphy into a font and has digitized it. So the invitations she offers are completely unique. She also does hand painting for invitations and creates custom fabric envelope liners. One of my favorite things she offers is custom monograms and crests, she posts her work on Instagram and I am obsessed. She also has a great heart, when hurricane Harvey hit she made a mug to raise money for those affected. I bought one, and it’s still one of my favorite mugs. She’s truly one of a kind!
Megan Marie Calligraphy
Megan’s calligraphy is so delicate and beautiful! I can always spot her work when I am death scrolling on Facebook or Instagram instantly. It’s just so distinctive and beautiful!! I love that not only does she offer calligraphy, she also has items to rent for weddings, namely mirrors and easels. I like the seating chart on mirrors, it’s more eco friendly, and it captures beautifully on camera. This woman not only does the things I listed in the opening paragraph, but also lettering on macrons, cakes and ribbon. I love how diverse she is!
