Weddings & Events
Hi, I'm back!
And I'm so glad YOU are here! Before we work together, how about a little introduction and back story about how I got here?
As you may or may not have heard, I recently announced in late 2021 my decision to no longer offer the service of wedding signage rentals, after 10+ years inventing this service in the New England area. (You can read more about my story of how I started here) My decision came about after the pandemic and 2021 wedding season, the busiest season I have ever seen throughout my entire career, hence my crash and burn.
Having more time with my family during the pandemic made me slow down and realize how precious that time is. It also made me realize how the hustle of working those long wedding weekends really did not allow for the time that my family needed from me. My kids are getting older and time seems to be flying by, so in order to best preserve our time together I needed to create more intentional, dedicated space in my life/work schedule.
A break that led to an epiphany
While still continuing to finish out what was supposed to be my final 2022 Wedding Season, I had a lot of time to think about my decision and process my thoughts in a more clear and calm space. Being able to bring someones vision to life through creating hand lettered signage has always been something that truly brings me joy! The look on my clients face when they see what we created together cannot be described in words. The little details really mean the most to me, as much as they do my clients. That is what I feel honestly connected most of us together-their trust that I cared as much as they do about the details as well as bringing them to life... well, that and my garage studio that we get to dream it all up in! Usually with my crazy family making an appearance, popping their head in and out of the door. Not going to lie, Dom has invited himself to one too many weddings this way!
I realized I was not ready to let go and say goodbye to event signage just yet! So I did some soul searching and discovered a way to allow for this to still be a part of my business offerings, while still being able to maintain a healthy life/work balance.
Sometimes taking a big step back, is the best way forward.
You may be wondering what this new service looks like, allow me to explain a bit more in detail! Instead of me creating signage for you using my usual rental catalogue of mirrors, boards and more; I have decided to add the Wedding & Event Hand Lettering Service for signage to my business offerings.
What this means for me? This gives me the ability to create beautiful hand lettered event signage for you, while taking away the stress of managing the inventory and transportation on the weekends. What this means for you? You get to source your dream item, maybe you even have it in your home already as decor, and have it hand lettered by me for your big event! Not sure where to look? Have no fear! I have curated a list of my favorite budget friendly mirrors and where to find them, and you can hear more about the ideas I have for you on my latest YouTube video here!
How does this work?
I wanted to make this as easy as possible, for the both of us! Whether you are planning a small intimate gathering, shower or big wedding- there is something for you! I have created three options for you to choose from, you can learn more about them below. The process is seamless-once you have decided which option works best for you, select which month and year your event is taking place and click "add to cart"! How easy is that? Each package is reserved with a 50% non-refundable retainer at checkout. (Please note that due to certain busy retail months for us, spots are limited as a result. If your month is sold out, please add yourself to the waitlist to be notified if another opens up!)
Once we have received your order, we will reach out via email with our contract and to schedule a time to discuss the timeline for our services and details of your signage. Together we will discuss what layouts you love, what pieces you had in mind for me to hand letter, and what message you are looking for them to relay. Examples of my lettering and work can be found here on my website, as well as my Instagram page-make sure to check stories for daily updates and sneak peaks!
Final payment is due one month prior to your event and will be invoiced separately via email. At the same time we will reach out to you to coordinate the drop off your items and pick up of completed signage. The best part is the look on your face when you see it all come to life in person! We help wrap them all up safely and load them into your vehicle, and that's it! Easy right? That's my goal here- to make this as stress free as possible because as a former Bride/MOH/Bridesmaid... I get it. Planning your event can be stressful, even if you do your best to avoid it, but I will make sure that your signage is taken care of and you have nothing to worry about with them! Have a look below, shop around and of course if you have any questions at all-shoot us a message here, we are happy to help!
