Wedding Fonts You Need!

A few of our most popular blog posts, believe it or not, are font related!  Working as a logo designer + brand stylist, I come across more fonts than I can count. We have over 6,000 fonts at our fingertips to use!  Not only do I love fonts in general, but as some of you might know, I also design them.  My other Font Crush posts have featured a wide variety of fonts from many different designers, but this post is special…

 

Why?

 

Because these are all *my* fonts!  You can find each of these in the font section of our website, as well as the links associated with them in the list below.


 

  • Elegant Calligraphy — this is my brand spankin’ new Cherokee Rose font.  It’s jam-packed full of features, and a lot of swash options, making it perfect for a wedding invitation that exudes elegance & class.

 

  • Swirly Letters — Meet Sweet Jasmine, a smooth, casual script with plenty of swirly extras.  Each letter has lovely beginning & end swashes, and some characters have multiple forms.

 

  • Flowy Pen — Sea Breeze is perfect for a laid-back invitation, featuring a bit of a coastal or beachy feel, with elongated strokes & easy to read characters.

 

  • Beautiful Rustic — You’re going to want to pair one of these cursive fonts with a printed font — check out Spring Market, which would be perfect paired with Cherokee Rose.  The Spring Market + Cherokee Rose combo would give your wedding invitation the perfect farmhouse chic feel.

 

  • Modern & Chic — Florida Girl Sans (comes in three weights) would be perfect to pair with Sweet Jasmine & Sea Breeze, for an easy to read, clean look on your wedding invitation.

 

Want to know about the graphic title?  That also comes in the Florida Girl Sans family — this is the bold version!

I’m excited for my fonts to be used in various projects — please, feel free to share your project with me if you use any of my fonts!

Brand Brag! Lillian Ann Interiors

Meet Lindsay, of Lillian Ann Interiors!  I had the pleasure of working with Lindsay on her brand — Lily & Jeff worked with her on her website design!  Lindsay and I knew each other from our high school days, so it was even more awesome to be able to work with someone from back home.

Lillian Ann Interiors is based in Atlanta, but Lindsay also does work back home, on the Space Coast in Central Florida.

Tell us a bit about how you got started with your business / blog / venture that we branded.

I have always had a creative mind… and since I was little, I always wanted to be a “Decorator”.
So I interned at a local shop in my small town. Once I graduated I looked into many art schools to follow my passion for Interior Design.

Once I graduated with my bachelor of Interior Design, I landed my first job with now celebrity designer, Anne Rue, at Anne Rue Interiors. Anne really shaped me as a designer. She taught me how to manage a project from start to finish. She really was a big impact on my career. She is also a designer I will always look up to and a inspiration for Women making a career for themselves!

Once I married, I moved to Atlanta to follow my husbands career. This was literally during the economy down turn in 2008. I struggled finding a job, making new friends. So I started working at Anthropology to keep myself busy. I worked here for about 2 years. During my time at anthropology, I created many of their window displays. This was fun, and a creative outlet for me.

One day (2010) , I got a call from my husband co-worker, who needed design help. I jumped on it and was too excited. Then I received another call… and was ecstatic! This is when Lillian Ann Interiors was born! It was like a door opened and I finally felt like Atlanta was a home. Again, if I didn’t work with the people prior in my life, I don’t know if I would be where I am today! They really molded me to be great at what they knew I was good at.

 

What products or services do you offer?

Interior Design Services, Furnishings and Accessories at my Local Store within Westside Connection.

 

What’s the best advice you have for someone that is interested in doing something similar to you?

Network! create a family of people around yourself to be a sounding board!

And don’t doubt yourself of what you can really do!

 

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!

I had been looking at Autumn Lane Paperie company for a bit before I enlisted them to help me. I loved everything about their own personal brand and image. I knew when the time came for me to create my new brand and website, that I would be contacting them immediately. I just had to wait for the right moment, and that was when I was opening my new retail space!

I told them what I needed, what I liked and what I was trying to achieve… and her team created MAGIC! It was the most simple and the easiest process ever! Which took so much stress off of me as I was trying to open my retail space!

I never had a doubt in my mind about choosing them to create my brand. I knew they were perfect for my boutique brand business!

 

What does the future hold for you?

Ah.. the future!
I hope that this is just the beginning of even bigger things.
My goal was to open a small shop (which I did at Upper Westside Connection. Here you rent your space and they sell your product for you.. so I don’t have those retail hours while I have small children).

My next goal (after my kids enter grade school) is to open my Own Personal Retail store with design services. As well as an online shop!

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!

Lily was a pleasure to work with as she really listened to my vision and put my brand on the best track! It can be challenging to ensure that your brand will hit target with you desired customer but once you get a feel for the image you are trying to present, to draw them in, it is such a fun and rewarding process! I have no doubt that my brand will help me reach my desired customer base and get them interested in all I have to offer.

Our business combines my passion for inspirational quotes and images with Michael’s expertise from the print industry. Our visions come together in our products and our message can be displayed forever in the home or office, and not just on a post-it note or status up date.

For years I have lived by the “Live, Laugh, Love” philosophy and after much trial and error, I can proudly create beautiful foil art prints which can be shared and enjoyed by others.

What products or services do you offer?

We developed and continue to grow the following product ranges:
Soulful Prints
Unique prints using real foil, every beautifully crafted print tells a story.

Soulful U
Products we have selected with you in mind, to inspire you to reconnect in the busy lives we lead today. Current products include crystals and salt lamps and we will continue to expand this range.

Do your research, know who your target market is and how you will reach them. We have spent a lot of time creating our processes and ensuring that our products are using quality materials.

 

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!

Even though we are on the other side of the world, I love how technology can bring us together! When I came across Autumn Lane Paperie, I loved their style and felt that it would be a great fit for the brand we are creating. I had an idea of colours and what I wanted to capture in the logo and Lily was able to bring this to life for us – always on hand to answer any questions or make the required adjustments. Lily made the process effortless for us right through from the initial consultation questionnaire through to the final branding with logo and collateral items. The specific questioning they do really gets to the finer details of what you are about and what you want to create.

We have had such great feedback from our new branding and believe that this was the right step for us going forward, our brand makes us unique.

 

What does the future hold for you?

I hope that we can continue to grow and develop. We will continue to fulfill our wish which is to bring inspiration, balance, harmony and peace to you and your environment!

Brand Brag: The Chiro Foundation

Check out The Chiro Foundation!

Tell us a bit about how you got started with your business / blog / venture that we branded.

 

My husband and I are both chiropractors that own and operate 5 offices throughout Florida. After being in practice for 5 years we have had many people come into the office wanting to get under care, but they don’t have health insurance and can’t afford to pay out of pocket. The state of healthcare in our country is declining and the cost of health insurance is rising. This is something we want to change within our community and nationally. My passion has always been to provide everyone, including those that can’t afford it, the opportunity to get healthy under chiropractic care. This is why I started The Chiro Foundation. We provide high quality chiropractic care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

What products or services do you offer?

 

Our organization provides high quality chiropractic care that includes examinations, x-rays, and specific adjustments. We get to the root cause of health conditions instead of just covering up symptoms so true health can be achieved.

 

What’s the best advice you have for someone that is interested in doing something similar to you?

 

The best advice I would give someone that wants to start a non-profit is to do your research about organizations that already exist. You may find one that already exists that you can partner with.

 

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!

 

Autumn Lane Paperie made the branding process so incredibly easy. They really emphasize being very specific and taking your time answering their questions so that they make sure you get exactly what you want. Lily was amazing to work with and came up with the perfect designs for us. This has been way different than companies we have used in the past.

 

What does the future hold for you?

 

I hope the future holds many great blessings! I hope to have our nonprofit organization move into its own location and then eventually go national with the next few years.

Brand Brag – Sugarbird Cakery & Floral Co.

Tell us a bit about how you got started with your business / blog / venture that we branded.

We started our business about six years ago, offering custom cakes, cookies, treats, etc. This was side business for myself and my mom that steadily grew as we gained more and more clients. About a year ago, while planning my own wedding, we decided to start taking some casual fun flower designing courses. It quickly became an obsession and after successfully offering some flower arrangements for sale, we decided to expand our business to include flower design.

 

What products or services do you offer?

On the bakery side, we offer custom cakes, cupcakes, cookies, sweet trays, etc. On the flower side, we offer small scale flower arrangements specifically for special occasions.

 

What’s the best advice you have for someone that is interested in doing something similar to you?

Practice, practice and more practice! I can’t tell you how many hours we’ve spent at workshops, courses, online learning, trial and error and just researching everything and anything. I also contacted a lot of people in similar fields for advice and suggestions on products, etc. We also rely heavily of referrals from our clients, so offering incentives, contests, etc. really helps to spread the word and bring in more clients :).

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!

In terms of branding, I had a basic idea of what I wanted our new branding to look like. Because we were adding in flower design to an already established cake business, I really wanted to keep some small reminders of our old logo, but to completely re-vamp it to include the colours and whimsy of flower design. I looked up a ton of colour palettes until I had an idea of what worked for our business, and looked up sample logos to give an idea of what I had pictured in my head. Lily was fantastic to work with. She took all of my random ideas and suggestions and created exactly what we were looking for. She was able to take the small changes I requested and create an absolutely perfect logo and brand for our business. I was able to take as much time as I needed before making final decisions and Lily was able to make suggestions that help make the decision making even easier. I truly believe our new brand will help elevate our business as it perfectly represents our combination of cakes and flowers into one cohesive design.

 

What does the future hold for you?

We hope that the future holds a continued growth of our new combined business. We really want to grow in our flower design, and to be able to offer arrangements frequently throughout the year. We also want to continue to grow our knowledge and skills in both areas with continued workshops, education, etc.
