Thank you for all of the love and support this little corner of the internet has received over the past several years. As friends and family members were getting married, their weddings fueled the inspiration for this blog. But as seasons of life change, my focus, along with those nearest and dearest, shifted away from the wedding planning stage and I began to neglect this blog.

I have decided to indefinitely retire Calligraphy by Shannon in an effort to pour my attention into my lifestyle blog The Scribble Pad where I will be merging past and future inspiration boards and parties. You will still be able to place orders for calligraphy, custom invitations, and hand stamped items through my etsy shop. And as always, you can stay in touch with me under my moniker, The Scribble Pad on my blog, etsy shop, facebook, and even twitter! I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you.

Wedding at a Winery

This past weekend I had the treat of visiting the award-winning Boordy Vineyards in Maryland (just north of Baltimore). Boordy makes some of my favorite wines, and so the tour and wine tasting were very exciting! It was an incredible afternoon spent with friends.

The whole time, I kept thinking that it would be a wonderful place for any event surrounding a wedding: engagement party, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, it would even be a great spot to get your wedding photos taken! The location is convenient, and the drive to the vineyard is beautiful. The vineyard also has great history. It was started by news reporter Philip Wagner and his wife Jocelyn after business trips to vineyard rich areas of France and Italy. The winery also has some neat trivia; named Boordy because the Wagner children couldn't pronounce Bordeaux, and the old barn is the site of scenes from the movie Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts!

Here are some pictures of the beautiful area.

what a great idea to have a bachelorette party at a vineyard! I wouldn't have thought of it, but I love it.
