I’m Lauren Perry
Most days you’ll find me in my studio, pink lemonade in hand, singing at the top of my lungs (badly) to old Disney movies while calligraphing and painting.
While my fancy official titles are calligrapher, watercolor artist and custom stationer, my real job is creating the heirloom designs that you will treasure and show to your grandchildren someday.
I live in the sweet salty city of Norfolk, with my husband Derek – who I met freshman year of college at Virginia Tech! We moved into our first home last year – a white Colonial (with lots of character and old world charm), on a street with the same name as my best friend.
I’ve been serving couples all over the world since 2015, and have been honored to have my work featured online and in print at places like Every Last Detail, Coastal Virginia Bride Magazine, Wedding Chicks and Carolina Bride Magazine.
Heavens to Betsy, You’re My Favorite
+ I have a weakness for Lilly Pulitzer – something about wearing those colorful prints just makes your day brighter!
+ Bring me some queso and a margarita (strawberry with salt, please) and I’m the happiest girl in the world
+ You won’t catch me without my big pearls and gold monogram necklace, they’re staples in my closet
+ I went to Virginia Tech, where I met my husband (freshman year in an 8 AM Physics class!) – Blacksburg will always be home!
+ My favorite color is aqua/mint blue – so many of my things are that color that my friends call it “Lauren blue”
+ Stationery isn’t my only love – by day I’m an architect designing K-12 schools to give students a flexible learning environment that supports project based learning
+ I was a member of Chi Omega at Virginia Tech, so my house is full of owls, which is probably pretty creepy to people who don’t know it was our sorority mascot
+ If I’m on a Netflix binge, it’s probably New Girl, How I Met Your Mother, or Law & Order SVU (dun dun)
+ My shoe of choice all summer long are Jack Rogers, I even wore them for my wedding (aqua of course, for that something blue!)
