I was contacted by this bride just two weeks before the big day. She wanted to get The Seven Blessings, a traditional blessing recited by a bride and a groom on their wedding, done in calligraphy. You can read more about them here.

She requested them originally on one piece of paper, but seven is a lot so I suggested we split it out as a set. This allowed me to write at a more reasonable size and space things out cleaner.

I used a handmade paper I was gifted for this project and love the results of the torn edge with the older words.

I am up for doing calligraphy of any sort of wedding vows but this one was really special. I am hoping to use it to list more like this for sale online.
