Dreams & Nostalgia is a full-service calligraphy and design studio. I create heirloom paper goods and handmade details that help couples to cherish one of the biggest celebrations of their lives. My passion lies in the people behind the story, and I love to tie together elements of a couple’s style aesthetic and their personalities to help creatively and cohesively tell their love story and make their wedding guests feel loved and appreciated. My services include custom wedding invitations and save the dates, envelope addressing, digitized spot calligraphy, monograms, thank you cards, gift tags, calligraphy vows and love notes, menus, place/escort cards, programs, signage and more.

I’m a quiet girl with a big heart and love for all things creative. I’m inspired by people and their stories and love to create with my hands. I believe in pursuing your biggest dreams, building your own contentment, and treasuring the beautiful memories you make each and every day.
