Black coffee, satin ribbon, a bright and cheery read.

Could not hold back from sharing these photos with you this morning!

I love that paperweight. What a gem.

Close up, outer envelope calligraphy in one of my most popular calligraphy styles!

"Track bag" favor bag, along with a ticket envelope and a few other goodies including Feast calligraphy.


Thank you, Aimee Mazzenga, for capturing the beauty that was this wedding and the privilege that it was to see my work included. And thank you to the rest of you for celebrating Feast's feature in this well-known and loved magazine with me- it was so fun to receive pictures from friends purchasing the magazine in stores and many words of encouragement in person and via the web. I am so blessed to have been offered this opportunity and blessed to have the opportunity to share it with you!  xo Alissa

Feast Featured on Martha Stewart Weddings Online!

It was early last year that Biz Zast, a marketing and PR director (with a knack for incredibly creative wedding planning and styling) in New York, NY contacted me to work with her and Cheree Berry of Cheree Berry Paper on what I had no idea would be a slam dunk (excuse my less-than-classy-description- but that is what it was) of a wedding- in class, elegance, and detail. 

I cannot express what an honor it is to have my calligraphy featured alongside the chic designs of Cheree Berry Paper (I feel a bit out of my league, here!), on Martha Stewart Weddings online and also in print. Without a doubt, a highlight of my artist career thus far.

See the full feature here depicting a fantastically classy, one of a kind wedding that took place at thoroughbred sales and auction house in Saratoga Springs, New York:

  • Stationary including Feast calligraphy, incorporated into the invitation, reception, details cards and outer envelope,
  • A “track bag” that must have been a glorious goody bag to receive as a guest, including Feast calligraphy printed on the outside of the bag, as well as a “See you on Sunday!” envelope including tickets to the races, a booklet of betting tips, a newletter outlining the best local spots, racing-form pencils…
  • Keepsake cocktail glasses with the couple’s favorite cocktail, “Dark and Stormy,” written in Feast calligraphy on the front, with the recipe included on the back, as well as matching napkins printed with “Biz and Micah” in Feast calligraphy…

Thank you to all who made this possible (am I writing a speech here? I better stop.) But really, truly. Thank you for all who follow me here and are such celebrators of my work and journey! I love you all.
