A Mothers Calligraphy Letter to Her Daughters

Bespoke Wedding Stationery | Calligraphy | Charlottesville, Virginia


There’s something so pure about a mother’s love and when I was approached to design a calligraphy letter from a mother to her daughters for a bridal session I had to say yes! Shelby was married at the courthouse and never had a chance to wear a wedding gown. She now has two young daughters and wanted to have a bridal session with her girls. Shelby wrote the most beautiful letter to her daughters for their future wedding days and let me tell you, I definitely cried a few times writing that sweet letter! Since becoming a mother I am an emotional wreck whenever I see the mother son dance at weddings, thinking about one day that being Grayson and I and it gets me everytime to think of the man Grayson will become (like now, the extra pregnancy hormones are just adding to me sobbing as I write this)!

I designed and wrote Shelby’s letter to her daughters in pink watercolor calligraphy since the session was being photographed in a grove of blooming cherry blossoms. The bridal session couldn’t have been more beautiful or perfect! Below is the letter Shelby wrote to her daughters,

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

My dear daughters,
My prayer for you is that
the One who created your hearts
will lead you to the men
who will lovingly care for them.
As you grow, I hope that you
come to learn just how
valuable and treasured you are.
My sweet girls, always remember
that you are precious to me
and my love for you will never end.
I pray that on your wedding day
and forever after, you will
experience profound joy
and a rich and lasting love.
Someday you will be brides,
but you will always be my daughters.




I hope Shelby and her daughters treasure this letter for all their days and look back at these photos with joy and love. One of my favorite aspects of my job is being a part of some of the most special days in my clients lives! It bring me so much happiness to know that my bespoke stationery and calligraphy are a piece of the puzzle to making that day one of the best days of their lives, creating memories that will last them a lifetime and something they can look at for years to come!
