I’m Lauren Perry – the calligrapher and wedding invitation designer behind Lauren Perry Studio! I live in the sweet salty city of Virginia Beach, but I serve couples in Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads, Richmond, and nationwide.

Having loved art and design since a young age, I began my journey of hand lettering in Kindergarten with a couple of Crayola crayons, the walls in our house, and a very patient mother. Thankfully since then, my design tools have gotten more refined and I’ve found some more interesting things to draw on!

My passion is creating calligraphy and watercolor designs for my brides that capture your individual style, and make you and your guests feel special. I love to work individually with each client to find out your vision, ideas and inspiration before creating your one of a kind design! I am so thankful to be surrounded by so many wonderful brides and grooms who have a passion for sweet southern traditions and pretty little details that capture their love story!

When I’m not calligraphing, you can find me spending time with my dear husband, Derek, on the beach, or checking out Lilly Pulitzer‘s newest prints. In addition to calligraphy and invitation design, I work full-time as an architect, designing K-12 schools and community buildings. I love all things southern, cheering on my Virginia Tech Hokies, spending time with my Chi Omega sisters and I believe life is better when surrounded by fluffy puppies!

I look forward to meeting and getting to know you!
