Travel, calligraphy, and wedding expos - oh my!

So, I've been a little M.I.A. these days from the blog and I just wanted to give a brief catch-up to bring y'all up to speed! Quick recap... In July my husband and I took a much needed, week-long trip up to Michigan for fourth of July and to celebrate our one year anniversary. We had a B L A S T and truly enjoyed such gorgeous weather and company! August brought a lot more traveling to see family in Naples and then we traveled up to Pennsylvania for Nick's cousin's wedding Labor Day Weekend!

Michigan sunsets on the Grand Traverse Bay are pure magic!

Up in Pennsylvania for the wedding of the year! Congrats to Ashley & Thomas!!


In the work realm,I've been a busy bee! I have created custom invitation suites for a few really beautiful styled shoots within the Tampa Bay and Central Florida area - in which one is soon to be published {yay!}. Shoutout to I Do Events & Party Rentals for organizing a gorgeously dark and romantic photoshoot 😍As well as Elina of Elina Rose Studios and Shannon of Dewitt For Love Photography for allowing my calligraphy to be a part of a super delicate boudoir photoshoot! I've included a few shots below! I've also been working on custom designs and hand-addressing invitations for amazing couples' wedding days, which makes my heart oh so happy!!

Outside of the wedding arena, I enjoy creating logos and pieces for small business and organizations! One of my most recent projects was designing a custom logo for a Tampa Bay Real Estate Agent, Donnie Hathaway. He wanted a logo that represented himself as a trustworthy and luxury real estate agent in the Tampa Bay area.


What's up next?There are so many amazing things on the horizon for Copper Creative! Of course, I have my couples' pieces to work on including invitations, large mirror seating charts, hand-lettered place cards, and signage. I'm working on a few more pieces for some of my super awesome photography frands' styled shoots. I've also got marketing pieces for some amazing organizations to create. But, most importantly, I will be at the Tampa Bay Bridal Expo on Sunday, October 7 in Saint Petersburg!! I am partnering with the lovely Jessica of Forever Treasured Photography to bring you the most unique and elegant wedding planning experience! If you're engaged and looking for some inspiration, to meet the perfect vendors, or just wanting to see what it's all about - come on by and say hi! I would LOVE to meet you and the bonus is that tickets are only $5! {score!} But a bonus on top of that bonus is that Jessica and I are doing a package giveaway to one lucky bride who stops by our booth!!

That's all for now as I sign off to go catch some couch snuggles with Nick and have us a movie night. I promise the next blog won't be so far between! Of course, if you ever have anything you would like to know more about in regards to weddings {and I mean anything!}, marketing, or branding - let a girl know 'cause I want to make this blog useful for you! Yeah - YOU!

Cheers! Christie
