Okay, I have secret I should admit. If I wasn’t a florist, I would 100%, hands down, absolutely be in the paper goods business. The creativity is endless, the options overflowing, and if I’m being completely honest, they last a tad bit longer than flowers do 😉 I feel like when it comes to wedding invitations and paper goods, brides tend to take the cheap or simple route. I’m telling you though, as a wedding vendor who has seen hundreds of wedding invitations, menus, and seating charts; they end up being one of my most favorite details of the whole wedding!
We’ve asked Leigh Gable, the owner of The Columbus Calligrapher, to give us some insight on the topic.
“What they say is true, you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Your wedding invitation is the first impression of your wedding, it’s important! It sets the tone for your wedding and gets your guests excited for the big day!”
Leigh fell in love with calligraphy when she got engaged in 2015 and wanted to learn it so she could address her wedding invitations. The next year, she started The Columbus Calligrapher and began to offer calligraphy services to brides. Since then, she has expanded to include a line of semi-custom wedding invitations and custom wedding stationery for brides in Columbus, Ohio and around the country.

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
