I love when one project spirals into several for one client. No, not just because it puts tacos on the table, but because it allows me to learn more about her and her occasion, I can build a little bit of visual similarity into the multiple pieces if called for, and cultivate an actual relationship with her.
That was the case with this rustic Montana ranch wedding - the bride's sister got in touch with me and coordinated a few different details of the day to be calligraphied by me, and soon, the bride and their mother were also on the email chains as we collaborated on ideas for the pieces.
They were trusting enough to let me do their 200 escort cards, the menus for the reception and a separate lil' bebe menu for the cake table (uh. How good does that cake look?). My favorite part about doing the escort cards, aside from getting to know my new Hunt 101 nib, was seeing a bunch of mutual friends' names on the guest list! I give every card my full attention, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't spend an extra minute on those names I know. Plus, then they text me pretty things from the reception so I can spy on my work.
Cheers to this bride and groom!
