Kelle’s Love note ::

I have known of Calluna Events for many years through reputation and it was a thrill to work with Calluna for the first time in 2013 when Calluna Events hired me to be the wedding calligrapher for couple Molly and Sammy. This lovely bride and groom gave me a wonderfully challenging commission of hand lettering each of the guest’s personal invitations which featured a Lana Frankel original illustration. What a grand way to begin my relationship with Calluna. I understand now through my own experiences why Calluna Events has the sterling reputation that it has and I congratulate Heather and her team on its very special 10-year anniversary and wish them another ten years and beyond of mighty success.
