Leigh's work is SO AMAZING! For our seating chart I wanted to put it onto a mirror. I thought it was something beautiful and different. She was so helpful in guiding me in the right direction to find the perfect mirrors. Not only is her work incredible, but she is so wonderful... Read More to work with too! The mirrors were everything I wanted and more. Our wedding was two months ago and I still have people telling me how stunning they were and how they loved them. Now when I look at these beautiful mirrors it brings me back to the most magical and special day of my life! If you need any sort of calligraphy for any occasion I highly recommend Leigh.

Leigh is absolutely amazing! I have to say I am one picky bride and Leigh's calligraphy is perfection. From the beginning she took so much time explaining all the options I had in terms of colors, font and explained all the rules on wording depending on how formal you want to... Read More go! This was incredibly helpful because I didn't know the proper way to address my invites and I could count on her to write everything correctly because she knew the rules to everything!

My partner and I are from Bloomfield, NJ and we are getting married in Clifton, NJ (April 2015). We decided we wanted to use as many vendors from our area as possible. We did some research and found that Lovely Scribe Calligraphy was in Wayne, NJ. Not only was the location... Read More great, the price was just right and the service was phenomenal.

Leigh McMichael

Hi! I’m Leigh and thanks for taking a peek into my world. I’m detail-oriented to a fault if you ask anyone close to me, my nails are perpetually ink stained, and when I'm not busy writing and making I can be found loving on my little girl and two dogs. I picked up my first calligraphy nib at the age of eleven and haven't looked back since! I love it when couples approach me with their newest Pinterest inspired design concepts. It’s what keeps my work fresh and exciting for me. My hope is that after working with me my clients are able to breathe a sigh of relief with a smile on their faces!
