Saying goodbye to another year past is always a bittersweet experience. We reflect on what went right, wave farewell to what went wrong, and focus our attention on the things we hope to accomplish in the year ahead.
2015 was so good to us. We launched our business in February of 2015, and poured our hearts and souls into every aspect of our new venture. We were delighted with custom stationery requests for real weddings from the moment we opened our doors, and made some beautiful connections with brides all across North America!
We also had the chance to work alongside an incredible team of local vendors, and we feel lucky to have already forged what feels like lifelong connections within such a talented and welcoming community. In a field that often looks to American trends for inspiration, experiencing the homegrown talent and vision that exists locally has been a refreshing (and deeply motivating) change of pace.
Flourish Calligraphy was invited to participate in a number of creative collaborations with incredibly talented industry professionals in 2015, taking our work across Canada and around the world. We were particularly thrilled to see our work featured on a number of our favourite wedding blogs; to be completely honest, we’re torn between feeling blown away and overwhelmingly proud of where this little business has gone in its first year. (Did we mention that Jose Villa once liked one of our Instagram posts?!)
Each of our successes, both big and small, have made an impact on our trajectory this year. We are beyond grateful for all that we’ve done, and all that we have to look forward to in 2016. Sending our love, and wishing all of you happiness and success in the year to come!
