As you may know, White Ink Calligraphy and I co-hosted a calligraphy workshop for brides this past Saturday! The lovely ladies of Nashville Event Planning and Briar Rose Hill hosted the day in their gorgeous historical wedding venue in Bethpage, TN. The bridal suite was the perfect intimate space to fit all 14 guests and take in all of the vintage-inspired atmosphere. Each guest received a swag bag full of goodies from each vendor involved and also learned the basics of calligraphy from the pro herself, Claire! The intimate group allowed Claire to give some personalized instruction and attention to the ladies and it was so much fun hearing their stories of wedding planning and why they wanted to learn calligraphy.

Throughout the morning, the lovely ladies sipped on mimosas from Bar Magnolia, ate some delicious brunch from Loveless Catering (fresh, homemade biscuits anyone!?) all while learning with their take-home calligraphy kits. Claire of White Ink Calligraphy taught the ladies about pen pressure, pen nibs and lettering angles. The one-on-one attention everyone received was definitely beneficial to learning the skill. We took a break mid-workshop to tour the grounds, barn and home at Briar Rose Hill and learn more about the other vendors involved. In the end, we all took some group photos and admired the amazing floral staircase installation by Petals & Fields. And we made some new friends!
What did brides think of the workshop?
“Such a great time! Loved it!” – Amber
“The value was excellent, I feel like I walked away with so much! I really enjoyed the tote bags, succulent favors, and of course the brunch! I hope to still put my calligraphy skills to use and would love to attend any applicable future NBG events. Please keep doing what you are doing, you are such a great resource to brides!” – Emily
I thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone at the workshop – brides, vendors, moms, friends… Learning about all of your wedding days, your calligraphy experiences and businesses all added up to a day I will not soon forget! Thank you to everyone involved for making this day so memorable and FUN!
