Nothing makes me happier than seeing the joy on a bride's face when she walks into her reception and sees everything she's spent months imagining come to life.  

From sleek marble place cards covered in modern calligraphy to seating charts emblazoned on vintage windows in flowing script, every wedding is as different as the couples they celebrate.  Whatever you imagine, let us help you make it a reality.

WELCOME! I’m Chelsea Parnell



Searching for something to make your wedding one-of-a-kind?

there's no one like you.
the same should be true of your wedding.

Every year, there are about 2.5 million weddings conducted in the US alone.  It's not easy standing out from a crowd that size.  But you and spouse-to-be are unique.  Your relationship is like no other.  So make sure your wedding is one-of-a-kind, just like you.  Start with hand-calligraphed invitation envelopes, add in fun place cards on surfaces that speak to you and your theme (think shot glasses, marble, agate, or even leaves or rocks), and finish with a trendy bar sign on acrylic.  Put it all together and you have a wedding as special as the two of you!



Fueled by equal parts caffeine and passion (and red wine), I spend my days with ink stained fingers, creating works of art with pointed pen and beautiful paper.  I love taking my clients' visions and turning them into reality, bringing life and beauty to unexpected places.

I believe in rejecting the mundane and embracing the singular. In the kind of art that reaches out to you, weaves its way throughout your life, and doesn't just hang on a wall.

it's Your Guests' first impression - make it a good one

Envelope Addressing

Your wedding invitations are the very first thing your guests see, long before you walk down the aisle in the perfect dress or have your first dance in your picturesque venue.  Your invitations are the very first impression of your nuptials, made as soon as your friends and family open their mailboxes.

Something so important deserves more than a computer font; it deserves beautiful, custom calligraphy.  

Weddings are the perfect opportunity to showcase your style and personality for all of your closest friends and family.  Maybe you're an outdoorsy couple who would rather sleep under the stars than in a luxury hotel room.  Bring that love of nature to your nuptials with place cards crafted of preserved leaves and hand lettered with all your loved ones' names.  Maybe you're fun-loving party couple who cherishes a great time above all else.  Ditch the paper cards and use custom-calligraphed Himalayan salt shot glasses as place cards instead.  Whatever you're style and personality, there's a gorgeous option waiting just for you!

I get it, gift-giving is hard.  It can feel like an endless cycle, from Valentine's Day to Christmas, not to mention birthdays, new babies, engagements, and all the other major life events that deserve recognition.  

Why not take these opportunities to show your loved ones how much you really care with custom gifts?  I've worked with dozens of clients to create one-of-a-kind mementos, from meaningful song lyrics calligraphed to mark a daughter's wedding to Christmas ornaments with a new baby's name, we can create nearly anything!

She was super communicative and turned these place cards around so so quickly in order to get them to me in time for my wedding. They looked beautiful, turned out exactly how I envisioned, and our guests loved them and were excited to take them home as favors! Thank you SO much!

Can NOT say enough good things about Chelsea!

The smile on my nieces face beaming from ear to ear when she saw her place cards was all I needed. Chelsea is a very talented artist a her worked tested and true. She was so considerate and prompt to communication went the extra mile to make sure that the place cards arrived in time for the wedding.

Simply elegant and beautiful!

It came out more beautiful than I could have imagined. Even my fiancée gave me props for choosing these!  The quality is great and the calligraphy is amazing.
