Happy Friday Everyone!
You’ve made it through another week!
I thought as I’ve been trying to add blogging to my busy photo schedule, I wanted to actually start something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while, Friday Feature. I wanted to feature different vendors, friends, artists, and all of the above that I’ve had the pleasure of working with and help support other small businesses like myself. In the photography and wedding industry, many of us are connected through a web and most of the time if you ask us if we have a videographer, or coordinator, we usually have a few at our finger tips.
So over the next few Fridays, I want to feature some of the people I’ve had some amazing times working with, and if you haven’t found your specific person for your special day, this might be a good place to start.
Most of the vendors are Chicago-based but not all, happy vendor hunting!
Today’s Friday Feature: Amanda Tiberi of XO Art and Design
I’ve known Amanda through her graphic design glow up since our first year of college at University of Illinois and have watched her personally grow, transform, and truly find her craft. She’s been an artist her whole life, graphic designer for 6 years, and wedding calligraphy artist for 3 years.
She offers everything from wedding placement cards, welcome signs, guest favors, bridesmaids gifts, and everything in between! She even offers full wedding invite suites from the save the dates, to invites, and thank yous.
She even recently started putting her calligraphy on apparel, if you’re looking for some holiday gifts, check out her offerings here.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, would I make a good calligrapher or do I just want to sip some bubbly and practice, ask no more! Amanda also offers Sip and Script (virtually currently) where she walks you through different exercises on calligraphy, with different themes. To test your calligraphy skills, learn more here.
If you’re looking for anything calligraphy related for your wedding or event, Amanda is your girl! Below are some of the images of items she offers, but for more information, check out her website! She even offers gift cards, so if you aren’t in need, but know someone that is, be sure to check those out too!!
And be sure to check out some of the photos by yours truly too!
Have a great Friday!
