Laura @ Laura Hooper Calligraphy's Picture
Laura Hooper, Northridge, CA Vendor: Calligraphy Website: Laura Hooper Calligraphy About Me: I've been practicing the art of calligraphy since the age of 12 and nothing gives me more pleasure than waking up each morning knowing I get to do what I do each day. I love having the ability to infuse my own personal style into each of my bride's special day. When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading and painting; but most of the time I don't consider calligraphy to be work at all!

Sanibel Island Map

August 20th, 2009 @ 12:08 pm by laurahooper

Here is an adorable of map of Sanibel and Captiva islands down in the Gulf of Mexico that was used as a wedding announcement. The happy couple was married on Sanibel Island, then held a reception the following month back in the states. All of our maps are personal, but this bride clued us in to many of the meanings!

The map points to Cayo Costa, and island just north of Captiva, because the bride and groom frequent that specific island for sea shelling trips! We were even able to include a yellow flip flop from a shelling trip. The bride had this to say, “One person’s flip flop kept coming off in the incoming tide while we were hiking back to the boat, and we all had to keep diving for it so it didn’t get washed away with one of the tides!”

It’s personal touches like this that map each map truly unique!

Forgot to include an icon that you can’t live without? This bride loved our kissing humpback whales from another map so we printed it on round stickers used to seal the envelopes!

The flip flop is very cute — a great personal connection! — but I was immediately drawn to the food and animal pictures!

What a great map AND it brings back memories of my family vacation to Sanibel as a kid! Please tell me that cheeseburger represents Cheeburger Cheeburger?
